Yes this is the original. The name has been ripped off, the rear fender has been ripped off, the handlebars have been ripped off and just a few months ago an idiot builder in Dayton Ohio ripped off the hand shifter set up saying he invented it. The pictures here are over a decade old. Starting with a Harley Davidson OEM frame, OEM engine and Transmission, added in major frame mods, a fender tied into the swingarm and s seat supporting itself attatched hidden fasteners to the frame. Even a builder in Richmond tried copying the seat fastener system. Hey, long bikes may not be in style any longer in America but this is a 22" over front end that handles and rides like a factory bike.
