Bad Ass...

© 2010 Paul Jamiol
Built by Eddie Gillies and Don Cardinal of XX Cycles, MA. These guys are true craftsman and think outside the box. This bike started out with '68 Sportster cases and ended up with what you see here. It features XR1000 heads, machined cylinders, 5-speed H-D tranny, custom made frame, dual carbs, oil in frame and the list goes on. It's reminiscent of the early Vincent Rapides aka the "Plumbers Nightmare". Eddie says there is a Phil Vincent influence in his subconscious. Eddie and Don's only building guidelines chrome, no extended front ends and no hard tails. They build some really nice bikes.
