This yet another great example of the outstanding builds brought to the J&P Cycles, IMS shows just a handful of years ago. The owners are Shaun & Sheree Ruddy and they brought their multi award winning motorcycle known as “Chop Deluxe”. Painted by John Deel, this 2012 retro racer has a powerful 127″ Ultima El Bruto motor. Shaun modified the heads & manifolds, added a panhead front rocker box fueling fast install pushrods & hydraulic lifters fueling lifters. He removed the rear downtube which he used for the oil filter, backbone sealed & used for the gas tank filter. He then hand machined & polished the brass pieces throughout & added a clear iginition plate.
