Another stunning design from The Godfather himself. This project initially started when Ton was building his own straight backbone, High-Neck chopper "The Coast-Line Tramp". The Coast-Line Tramp was styled after the previously built "New York Chopper" but with a frame that had a higher neck and large diameter frame tubes, fat forks, a stretched fuel tank, a real fat rear tire and a Big Inch motor (Ton likes Big Engines). The finished bike looked very radical and wild. Anyone riding it found it suprisingly well to handle, but not Ton, for him this is a must. His philosophy is: A Custom build bike must not only look right, it also must handle right. If a Custom build bike is not rideable it becomes a piece of expensive and useless furniture. The radical design and style of the Coast-Line Rebel appealed to almost anyone that saw the bike, add to that the growing demand for High Neck Custom frames and a decision to convert the frame of the Coast-Line Tramp chopper into a production model was easily made. The original design was for an Evolution type engine and transmission combination added were a rigid version as well as a single down tube version in both Softails and rigid. The 6" stretch in the tubes together with the 36 degree rake allow the use of 12" over stock (FL) length front forks, providing that wild High Neck look. Use this fork length in conjunction with 3 degrees raked triple trees and a 21" front wheel, and the bike will handle exactly as good as Ton's original. The rear section of the frame has a unique construction. To avoid the typical "Softail with Wide tire problems" the rear belt runs on the outside of the frame and depending on the offset kit used it will accept 250, 280 and 300 rear tires. Engine and transmission mounts are in the stock position; just the primary drive is installed offset. It uses our 45mm offset kit for up-to 280 tires, or 55mm for up to 300 tires. Frames are available for Evolution Big Twin type engine/transmission combination as well as for Twin Cam Softail style engine/transmission combination. Note: Softail frames do not include swingarm. Swingarm must be ordered separately. All frames use Twin Cam style oil tank.
