Quick,Short & Custom

Tom Bowie (Deep Six Cycles)

  We are going to keep this post short and sweet. It's Friday, the clock is ticking and the candle is still burning at both ends. Here are some of the things we have whipped recently. 

We do a lot of custom work. Such as these Brass Wheel Spacers.

I made Billy D from Hellmuts a set of brass for his little Triumph a few years ago. The bike has been getting a bunch of attention lately. I have to say I dig it!

Shaving up those fork legs. We can leave the brake mounts or remove them too.

A New Home For a New Little Lane Splitter!

Tom Bowie (Deep Six Cycles)

  The raffle bike has a new home, can you believe it? It will be on it's way to V.A. shortly! We would like to thank every one who has helped us with this raffle. This raffle never would have happened with out partnering with East End Moto/Flying Chairs to make it happen. They  supplied the bike and a slew of other help and support while we worked together to make this happen. Butt's Chop Shop came threw with a bad ass donated paint job! The Burger Bar, Lazy Diamond & The Double Crown sold the heck out of tickets as did a few of our friends. Hard Drive sponsored our efforts and kicked down some parts for the bike. And of course special thanks to every one else who worked behind the scenes to help us out with this whole deal. We are really looking forward to handing a check to Richard Page to help out with the hospital bills from when he went down this winter/fall.

 Check out this short video I made if you could not make it to The Melt Down in Hendersonville where we held the drawing. We had a great time seeing old friends and making some new ones. Come check out The Melt Down next year if you are in the area! Those Ton Up Highlands guys put on a heck of an event! 

 


Carnage and the Beast! Oh wait, I mean beauty!

Deep Six Cycles

If you have not been paying attention to our posts on other social media you may not have realized that I managed to completely decimate the sprocket cover on my Ironhead Sportster chop.

Here is the carnage! Opps!

I was going to construct a whole new mount/ sprocket cover. But since I just wanted it done so I could ride I buzzed it back together. Hopefully this winter I will be able to get around to ordering up some material and fabbing one up!
Oh and this is just another one of those slammed mornings getting everything shipped out!

Just a good ole week. Never meanin no harm...

Deep Six Cycles

What have we been up to? Well, really just settling into the new shop with East End Motorsports. Setting up the new spot, arranging, organizing and turning out products.


We still ship Iron Pony Express from time to time.

Wait, could it be? Brass Pegs that fit Ironhead Sportsters and Shovelheads? That's it man, we have them you want them!

Did I mention that we have 1" Brass Foot Pegs for Iron Head Sportsters and Shovelheads? You know the ones you can't get nice pegs for any where. They fit those big ugly male frame mounts!

Here are a whole set of antiqued or "aged" brass hand grips and footpegs! I bet you didn't know we offered so many types of finish on our products.


Here are a few more shots of the pegs. This has been a much requested finish on our brass products lately!  

Here we have our antiqued finish brass pegs on the right with common Harley style mounts on the left. One of our polished brass jockey/suicide shift knobs in the center and our brass "Screw It" footpegs fitted with mounts for Ironhead and Shovelhead Harleys.

Did you know that we still manually machine our parts? I know it's like the 50's never ended!

Some times we get requests to produce a part based on one we offer already but with a little twist to fit our customers needs or taste. Take this set of Deep Six Cycles Hexogram brass handgrips. They feature a double hex on one end.

Yes I know only old guys do it this way. Finishing up more parts and they are gone, gone, gone!

I was forced to go down town the other day... Strangely The Cobblers Shoe (my bike) didn't have anything to do with my morning in traffic court.


Shots in the dark.

Deep Six Cycles

I find myself shooting photos of things. Some of the time these things make it to instagram or various other forms of social media, often times they are posted one place and never make it to the blog. Here are a few photos from last week. I tend to take a lot of the shop stuff for granted just because I see it every day and never think to shoot it. There are probably a lot of missed opportunity's.     

 
This clutter of the day is a bunch of material in different stages of machining, or just finished.

Here is the finished bore for a set of brass grips with a Joker Machine throttle tube being test fit. P.S. they run a bit small.

 
These would be our finished Brass Grips with the Joker Machine Throttle tube installed



Just an ole handle bare fixture.

A Deep Six Cycles Equipped Steed. Captured by Frank Bott

Deep Six Cycles

  Recently I was lucky enough to have my bike shot by Frank Bott. Who is an amazing photographer and a lot of fun to work with. I feel very flattered that he has gone out of his way to track me down and convince me to let him shoot my bike.
  The interesting thing is this bike is not nearly finished. So I kept telling Frank I was not ready. But Frank was very persistent. And I realized, "what the hell life is short". Plus he suggested involving my family in the shoot and that really sealed the deal for me.
   This bike is at the moment my only personal runner. So that means keeping it up is a primary goal. Every thing else in life comes first over finishing it. And even though its winter I still commute to work on it often. So that makes taking it down to finish it unappealing. I will keep chipping away at it. Bit by bit part by part.

Please note our limited edition first generation D6C Tramper Bars. And the slight variation on our signature brass grips. I will add more hand made super far out chopperrific  parts when I have a little more time to spend on her. I think a top end job is in preparation for spring. So that will set me back. As I know I will be dying to ride after having her down a week or so. I hope you enjoy Frank Botts Photos of my Deep Six Cycles Equipped Chopper!

Deep Six Cycles

We have a pile of these 7" Flat Fenders we are selling for 35$! Snatch one up while we have them! We have reduced our prices and they are moving like hot cakes!  These flat fenders were made just for us in a neighboring state! That's right that means these fenders were made right here in the USA! They are perfect for an Old School Chopper, Bobber or any Custom job you can dream up. This heavy gauge fender measures 25 3/4" long and 10 5/8" tall and fits a 16" wheel tire combo very well. Buy one with the PayPal button below or feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.



Making up for lost time!!! (AKA Choppertastic!)

Deep Six Cycles

Its back! We just gotta get rolling to build inventory up again. In case you didn't know I packed the shop up into storage when I found out Liz was pregnant with our son and found a job that was slightly more dependable. I always got by just fine but month to month there really was no telling if I could support myself the shop and a whole family... Well I'm back at it running nights and weekends from the house. If you see something you want let me know and I'll try to get it made up for ya!

D6C Gas Cap!

Deep Six Cycles


I got a call a while back from my good buddy John Dills. I was told he wanted to snatch up a set of Brushed Aluminum Grips and Pegs for one of his pals. But the hitch was they really needed a killer gas cap to match. So I took a minute and spun up this little beauty!





That match these really well!



Or even these!



Get you some or just check out more of our hand fabricated merchandise here! http://deepsixcycles.bigcartel.com/



Sneak peak! (A.K.A. I'll put a hex on you!)

Deep Six Cycles

Ok so here is a sneak peak at a variation of our Hex Pegs. I keep wanting to call them Tie Fighters as they are made here in the U.S.A. and the kinda remind me of the Star Wars Tie Fighters. But good Ole Boston Mike has that whole Star Wars thing goin so... How about a little contest? If any one can come up with a kick ass name for these pegs. I'll kick you a 10% discount off one of our products! Let the games begin!!!
