Covering this incredible masterpiece simply cannot be done without pages and pages of writing. Seven marks the determination and creativity of one man. It was the first build in a new shop and covers just about every skill set that Jeremy didn't already have before. This particular project started out as a picture of two ugly mint wheels, yet piece by piece it turned into something beautiful. Jeremy sought after and followed the style of a Harley Davidson CAC Speedway racer. The engine needed to be vertical single, and the end result is a remarkable marriage of a heavily modified Ducati head, Buell cylinder, and Triumph gearbox. Going back to learning a new skillset, Jeremy had never made a rounded gas tank simply because he couldn't shape metal. If you can recall the tank fashion of the Panster and Old Black. He decided it was time to change that, and the end result is an oil tank, rear fender, engine shield, and fuel tank all hand shaped from aluminum. In doing so, this bike became a family effort, as it was all hands on deck to painstakingly sand and polish each and every part. One of the most unique pieces that has caused brows to be raised is the front suspension. The Hydro-Springer is unique to LC Fab and combines a springer with an upside down Showa fork. The spring was removed, so the Showa acts as the dampener. Seven is a historic venture in the story of LC Fab. It has been recognized at so many different levels and proves that it is never too late to learn something new. Seven was the Artistry in Iron 2015 winner and AM Expo Champion of the Americas. It was printed in hardback in "The Ride" and won the honors of the only award ever given at the Handbuilt show. Seven now resides at the Haas Moto Museum in Dallas, Texas.
