Registration no. YK05 BEU
Frame no. 4B7H846914S001644
Engine no. 5850804646
This unique, 1960s-style chopper was created in 2004 by renowned custom bike-builder Paul 'Tooty' Moody at Thundercity Motorcycles, Leeds for the TV show 'British Biker Build Off'. 'Old Skool' comes with a DVD of the TV show in which it featured, and the build itself is likewise documented in the series. In addition, the machine is offered with a copy of '100% Biker' magazine in which it featured. 'Old Skool' went on to win numerous competitions and is a well known machine in custom bike circles. Noteworthy features include a hardtail frame from Custom Chrome; RevTech Pandemonium Panhead-style 1,450cc engine; RevTech '5 in 4' gearbox; extended springer forks; hand-made custom seat; custom paintwork; and many besides. Very rare, the Pandemonium engine incorporates STD crankcases and cylinder heads; S&S pistons, timing gears and carburettor; a RevTech crankshaft and cylinders; an Andrews camshaft, valve springs and collars; a Mallory distributor; Rowe valve guides; and RevTech stainless steel valves. Having gone through several transformations, the current vendor acquired the machine after it had lain dormant and not started for approximately five years. 'Old Skool' is now fully restored to virtually its original 'Old Skool' specification. Though 'Old Skool' can be kickstarted, the addition of a much needed electric start (something 'Tooty' said he wished he had done) and is now said to be fully working, very reliable, and easy to ride 'show bike'. As one would expect, this spectacular motorcycle draws crowds wherever it goes. Offered with a V5C Registration Certificate and current MOT.
