Fatty's hardtail frame was custom built by Tyson using his own design. A concealed suspension system sits beneath the seat out of view to keep the ride nice and smooth. The radiator which is a Ron Davis racing model, dominates the front end of the bike so a fiberglass shroud that matches the smooth curves of the tank has been used to blend it in to the design (very subtle). The donor R1's front end, disc brakes, wiring harness and instrument cluster remain but everything else is custom, including the number plates which does indeed mean that Fatty is registered for the street.
It's a strange one and a bit off topic but we couldn't let this motorcycle pass by without a mention. It's crazy, weird, over the top and impractical but we love everything about it! Breaking rules is what custom motorcycle building is all about.
