2005 Spring Myrtle Beach Bike Week

Scootworks' 2005 Journey to the Spring Myrtle Beach Bike Week --- Scootworks headed down to Myrtle Beach Bike Week with a posse' from the shop, 4 trailers of motorcycles and parts to show, and unveiled two new custom metric cruisers. We set up at Murrells Inlet at the Inlet Square Mall, and had a blast. We met lots of folks, both existing customers and new people. We'd like to thank everyone who stopped by our tent to visit!

...about the unveiling...

'Superman' --- Built from a 2004 Honda VTX-1300C... We went for the 'old school' flat-track look, and decided to not stretch the tank. The frame was stretched 4", lowered 2.5", and modified for a 230-series rear tire. Modified and chromed factory wheels, tank flanges rolled and blended, fenders trimmed, all welds ground/filled and the frame blended and molded to remove all factory welds and make the frame look as if it were 'plastic'. Diamond plate neck covers fitted, fender rails trimmed, rectifier mounts cut and cleaned up. Custom 'SUperman' intake fabricated, Billy Lane Whisky bars, custom saddle w/gel-pad & Superman badge to follow the theme. Engine color-coated and fins polished. Lots of rich color laid on to bring the theme alive. Sidemount license/stop light, led signals front and rear. All braided cables and hoses installed, Mapam forward controls modified and polished, linkages fabricated to compensate for the frame stretch.

'Mad Drifter', a.k.a.'Purple' --- Built from the blend of a 2001 Kawasaki Drifter and 2000 Nomad... Huge amounts of work went into this baby. Front cut and raked to 40 degrees, all frame welds and mods were blended and molded. Custom tunnel cut into steering head to provide passage for all hoses, cables, and wiring. A complete Nomad front end w/dual brakes was chromed and grafted on, custom wheel hub covers designed and installed, and custom risers fabricated to provide nacelle clearance. All braided hoses and cables installed, switch heads and master cylinders chromed. Modified Mean Streak spoiler fitted up front. The frame was cut in half, just behind the engine, and the rear clip from a Nomad was welded in place. A full Nomad rear swingarm/differential was chromed and installed, and fitted with the Drifter low-hung rear brake caliper and 10.5" rear rotor. All rotors were polished. Nomad wheels were ground, chromed, and mounted. Rear mods for use of the 200-series rear tire, 150-series up front. Progressive suspension was installed for a 2" lowered stance. Tank flanges rolled and blended, flush-mount pop-up fuel filler installed, and tank stretched back to the side covers. Drifter side covers were cut 2" and re-topped/blended. Nomad rear fender and Classic front fender was used, with mounts dropped 1". Rear fender has license frenched with tail light, stop light, and signals flush mounted and stealthed behind paint. New Hot-Box storage system fills void once consumed with exhaust tank (in front of rear wheel). Cobra Lo-Boy shotguns used, custom dual-runner intake, and managed with Wild Things fuel injection computer. More pics in the upcoming 'Projects' section of this website...

Aggrivated with the City of Myrtle Beach After you check out the pics below, have a look at the recent article written in The Sun Times (Myrtle Beach rag) about Noise Enforcement at Myrtle Beach Bike Week. It's just another example of what Myrtle Beach Bike Week has become over the recent years. They seemingly want our money, but not our bikes and people! I decided to reply to the editor. The more I read, the more I typed... Here's my position and experiences with Myrtle Beach Bike Week!
