In 2008 Ralph Roades owner of Wide Open Magazine originally set out to recreate one of the favorite bikes from his past, the scooter he had in the late 70‘s. To accomplish this he enlisted the help of some of the best in the business. Frank at MCWORX built the bike as if Ralph owned it since then, but with typical upgrades that he may have done. Jack Larson machine rebuilt the 74 cu. In. Shovelhead motor. Mayhem Custom Paint and Airbrush applied the custom candy red and extreme metal flake paint job. Ralph ultimately ended up with one radical retro chopper. Recently the guys at Frankenstein decided to take this blast from the past one step further by converting it to a Hot Rod Trike. The conversion began Using the 34” Frankenstein Trike Rear End. The Swing arm is chrome and the rear end is chromed/polished to mirror finish. In the rear it has 15x10 Halibrand style wheels with 265/50x15 tires. The drive train of the ‘77 FXE was completely rebuilt and kept stock with the exception of a S&S E carburetor and BDL belt primary.
