I was flipping channels the other night and saw this guy with his bike on a Christian channel and stopped to listen about it, told how he started out and how he gets inspiration and the design ideas and gave some praise and testimony. He had his "YHWH" bike in the studio WOW. The guys who make the choppers on teh cable tv channels have nothin on this guy! Check out his HUBLESS bike, the YHWH, pronounced Yaw-way, God's formal name, in a sense.

Not a big HD fan but this guy has SERIOUS talent.

Those are exceptionally sweet.

Sevierville TN too. There's a Muscle Car Museum, a Lodge Cast Iron Store and Smokey Mountain knife works in that town. A worthwhile stop next time through TN.

As I understood it, there is actually another wheel/drum under the seat area that is in contact with the rear tire and spins it negating the need for a chain/belt/shaft drive. I believe he said there are about 160 bolts holding on the rear tire to the rim (bead lock style) but it can be removed in minutes by only a couple bolts.

Also, the tire, the biggest bike tire in the world, couldn't even be put on by onther shops $42,000 tire machine. He had to devise a way himself to put it on and now there is no ptoblem. Bike tires, by nature, have very stiff sidewalls, so much so if you ride conservatively you CAN ride a flat without damage to the tire or wheel if you dont lean it much until you can get a fix. How a tire that wide and low profile, as a percentage of width would handle a flat, i cant say.

Practicality is the last thing in the mind of a HDer that ride bikes like these. They just want to be more outrageous than the next guy. IMO, though, this guy has it all over those orange county chopper guys and the jesse james guy.
