This build started as a headache from day one. Jeremy has always stuck to a strict philosophy: metal working takes time. He began this project as an entry for the Pro Chop-Off competition. It was considered an honor just to be building against legends such as Jeff Cochran and Bill Dodge. But back to the bike. He was left with a choppy deadline, no inspiration, and no world changing ideas. A salvaged Harley Davidson Sportster 883 was the official beginning. He swapped a V-twin for an S&S 1250cc kit, an engine known to boost performance. Next came a custom frame to work with the engine. Beautiful steel tubing, thanks to Cone Engineering, was welded in house and included a looped swing arm, the first swing arm frame that Jeremy had ever built. To save precious time, he added style to a split fuel tank from a Harley Davidson Fat Bob, reused an original 19" wheel set, and modified a hydraulic front end. The rear fender induced three days of lost thoughts, until a vision that Jeremy is so famous for began to form out of the mist. Here was a plan that could please both sides of the road. He used the hump as the oil tank, added maroon leather, and a classy Harley paint job. Worries aside, Jeremy finished in time for a long smooth ride all the way to South Carolina. The LC Speedster won Best Fabrication at the Fuel Cleveland show in 2016.
