FXR Build

BFM have been building custom and race bikes, restoring antique and classic bikes and riding or racing them for many years. We wanted to share a photo story showing a record of our FXR Build. I would like to thank my Dad, Herb, for all his help and guidance on this and all my projects; he stripped this bike down and  completely reassembled it for me after I painted it. Les at Fat Pipes for building the original race pipes when we first ran this bike with an S&S / G2 124 race motor and later for extending the two into one Super Trapp, when we put it back on the street with a mildly modified Harley – Davidson 80 cubic inch EVO motor. Also Scott Nation from Tassie Choppers in Tasmania for building the swing arm braces and supplying part of a gas tank we needed to repair ours.

We have a deep appreciation and love for the machines, the sport, the people involved and the desire to share our passion with fellow enthusiasts, whether this is your first year riding or you have been doing it for decades like us. If you are interested in PERFORMANCE, CUSTOM, RACING, VMX, CAFE RACERS, DIRT TRACKERS, STREET TRACKERS, ANTIQUE and CLASSIC Motorcycles, so are we! So if you see us at an event as spectators, exhibitors or at a race track watching, helping another team or racing ourselves, come over, say hello and talk motorcycling with us.

    I just picked up an FXR frame and swingarm for a first time build and the photos of your project are a great inspiration.

      Hi Buck,
      Pleased you like it, hope it helps with your project.
      We are also building another with our daughter.
      She has chosen a 1994 & is fitting a 111ci S&S motor, mid glide, 2 into 1, black paint etc.
      When this is finnished we will post photos of the build.
      The FXR is a great model, I am sure you will like riding yours when it is complete.
      Best regards,

    I like the Harley FXR. They are a great bike to ride and I just love your paint scheme! Looking forward to a feature on the next one you mention you are working on with your daughter.
