Cat said:  "I would like to tell everyone that this was my first build and with the exception of the paint and bodywork, the rest I did myself... not in a bragging sense, but so they might be encouraged to build one for themselves!! ... I couldn't keep from smiling the whole time I rode it for the first time ... knowing it was a machine I built!"

 

We say:  You have a right to brag!  GREAT JOB!

Cat made his Fat B 250 a one-of-a-kind stand out by adding lots of custom touches.

CM says he destroyed the new seat to build  his custom one.  He cut the pan and stretched it about 1-1/2" and then trimmed it down to match the frame rails.  The frame and swingarm welds were all smoothed and molded.  The rear fender and struts were molded together instead of bolted.  The trees were were changed to 5 degree with 2" over fork tubes.  He changed out the handlebars for the Choppers Inc. Whiskey Bars and .44 mag risers, and changed out the controls for the BDL Dalton design controls with "no switches on bars".  He changed the oil tank to a "modified" round center-fill chopper tank.  He also changed the front fender, grips, headlight, kickstand & brake rotors from stock.

The base color of the paint job is Dupont Hot Hues Extreme Green, and the graphics are House of Color Shimrin Neons, applied by Dan of Riders Customs & Classics in Oklahoma.
