Custom Builder builds exotic Fireball in Brooklyn.

Here's a link to a sneak peek about this new custom bike featuring a Fireball 535 engine.
Pretty cool!

When I get more pics, I'll post some up.

50's engine, huh? Bike looks interesting, as does Hazen and his shop.  Going to his site, he has some cool builds. Definitely an artist.  I like the look of his shop quite a bit.

These magazine articles usually are pretty "fluffy" and often get technical details a bit muddled.
I'm used to that.
But Hazan is a pretty talented guy that seems like he's an up-and-coming bike designer/builder, and we were happy to get one of our engine builds into this project.

Chumma did the engine build, and worked pretty closely with Max Hazan. Max has seen Aniket's V-Twin, and is very keen to do a cool custom build with that too.

I got a look at some spy photos of the bike before the article, and the only way I could describe it was "if Erik Buell had been given a Royal Enfield motor and told to build a bike for Captain America to ride into the invasion of Berlin."

It's truly a unique thing, pull-shock, girder fork, steampunk-y design cues and all.

Man...what can I say. It's obvious nothing any one would want to ride on the street. The ergonomics are bizarre. How do you steer the thing?
Too far out for me, maybe he has a ET working in the shop.

I think it's mostly intended to be a show bike.

Waste of a good engine. Shame.
