Crazy's 1997 SLTX
Picked up a 1997 SLTX a couple of weeks ago. It's no basket case, but it's no showpiece either, so right now my main concern is to get her stripped and ready for new paint and new cosmetics. It will be no where near stock as far as bells and whistles go. No reverse, no mirrors, no grab handle on the seat. Bare bones the way I like them.
So, up to this point I have just finished stripping the graphics. What a pain. Thank God for those eraser wheels.
I built my CrazyA Racing steering system and mirror blockoffs last week and installed them. Obviously everything will be taken off and painted to pretty it all up.
I have a new seat cover and mats coming. Everything will be a Black/White theme.
Not sure what I'm doing for power yet. It will either be a Sharps 1050 + bolt-ons with a single pipe, or a Sharps 1050 + triple pipes. Either way, the engine size will remain 1050cc.
I'm kinda going to do this build like American Choppers and make it up as I go. So some things may change along the way.
These pics are from this morning. It now has all the graphics off as I worked on it today.

Aren't you afraid those bars MIGHT move on a hard landing?

Not a whole lot to report. I did get the rest of the decals off and was able to get three broken sponson bolts out with zero damage to the hull inserts.
I also got the motor out. Removing the drive coupler and flywheel was almost too easy and everything is coming apart rather easy.
Hopefully I'll have the motor shipped to Scriba, NY. within the next couple of weeks.
