Sold me. The bike's name would change (more on that in a later installment), but the start of the project was true to the bargain-build concept. Richard turned up an unloved 1972 Harley-Davidson Sportster rolling chassis—no motor—at a garage sale. Had to give all of $100 for it. Over the next year, we'd refine our frugal parts picking. Friends' garages were raided, dealers' backrooms exploited and, of course, there was eBay, our virtual, 24-hour swapmeet.
