BROWN BOMBER AL RAPOSO Top Shelf Customs

Starting the build was a custom-built single-downtube frame by Anthony at Chassis Design that was raked 35 degrees. The frame was also designed to have the backbone stretched 2 inches out and 1 inch up. A set of Chassis Design narrow trees hold the 39mm Showa forks in place and add that old-school look. The seating surface started out as a hand-pounded solo pan by James Geirman and was then covered with hand-tooled leather by Swap Meet Carl. The sheetmetal is the perfect combination of old and new. The Sean Gibbsmade tank along with a West Coast Choppers rear fender and struts set the look of the bike off really well. Once the tank and fender were mocked up and proved to be a winning pair, Taylor Schultz of Schultz Design sprayed them, along with the oil tank and frame in Floating Turd Brown mini-flake. Taylor then broke out the 00 Mack brush and topped them off with hot-rodstyle pinstripes.
