Imagine going to a manufacturer of some of the most radical customs available in America and asking for an even wilder version of one of their customs. Such is the case with this particular machine. Originally christened as a "LOW BLOW", this bike has been modified and radicalized by the manufacturer to suit the tastes of the owner. The appearance of the bike is radical to say the least, with the frame stretched 5 inches and raked 40 degrees to give it a long low kicked out stance. The most unique aspect of the BOURGET (BBW) frame is the incredibly low seat height. This is owing mainly to the fact that the oil bucket has been eliminated and replaced with larger diameter frame tubes which act as both a reservoir and cooler for the oil.

Normally equipped with telescoping forks, the title holder for this bike opted for a "Springer" style front suspension system manufactured by BBW for one of their other models but made to work on this application. The stretched fuel tank has been internally plumbed and fitted with a pair of polished aluminum Nitrous Oxide bottles, just in case that extra "BLAST" is desired. The sheet metal is generously coated with a black base coat which is meticulously air brushed giving the impression that the paint is torn away to expose snakeskin beneath, and a thick layer of clear coat protects it all. The artwork matches the custom two-up genuine snake skin and vinyl seat, and this motif carries through on both fenders also.

All of the controls, covers and accessories are chromed billet aluminum as well as the "CHAOS" wheels and matching rotors and pulley. There is no shortage of glitz in the power plant area either. The drive line starts with a more than adequate 113 cubic inch fully polished S & S engine fueled by a Super "G" carb (and the auxiliary Nitrous system) and breathing out of a set of large diameter stainless steel exhaust pipes. The chain primary drive hooks up with a "Primo Brute III" clutch transferring the horsepower to a 5 speed transmission with close ratio gears, and all the covers are BBW billet. The stated low mileage on this bike indicate that it has barely been broken in and the tires bear out this claim, and the nitrous bottles have yet to be filled, let alone demanded upon.

Overall this is a spectacular looking bike, and besides some bluing on the rear rotor and minimal abrasions on grips and levers from the usage it has seen, it is all but new.
