From Geared Science comes an in-depth look at Chris Oestreich's 1985 Harley-Davidson FXWG Chopper build. Collecting dust for 5 plus years in Chris' good friend Matt Gardipee's garage was the start to a great project.
With other projects and priorities taking over Matt's time, he thought it was time to put it up on the ole' inter webs with a for sale sign. Before he could even take a picture Chris raised the question, "What if I bought it and we built it together and or when you have free time? This way you will know it was built the way it should of been and not all messed up from some random person."
The rest is history. Working together closely they put together one y lookin' Harley Evo chopper.

PHOTOS OF CHRIS' 1985 HARLEY EVO HARDTAIL CHOPPER BUILD
The Wide Glide just gives off that ic 70's vibe even though its an 80s chop.
That grin on Chris' face is from knowing it was killing Matt to see how good this bike started to turn out as they got closer to the finish line.
Classic lines and killer exhaust.The Gasbox 007 Air Cleaner looking really fresh on this build.Can't go wrong with a 41mm Wide Glide Front end.
Chris had to make custom 90 degree oil line fittings to fit this frame and motor because it was so tight fitting.
Chris named the bike "Bud" after his late grandfather. This points cover is his grandmothers handwriting of his grandfathers nick name.
This big twin has got some power, she's a ripper!
