Latest pics of the Ironhead racer project

Though, this configuration has already changed and the entire rear section has been remade longer,  with a bigger tail to hold more oil (pics to come later...)

Solid rear wheel and Dunlop K591 on rear.  Undecided on front wheel still.

Windscreen wing filler panels tacked in.

Windscreen upper has been moved forward two inches for more clearance when tucked, though the seat still needed to be moved back several inches from the configuration shown here.

The heart of the build, a Garrett GT1544 Turbo!

Ashley "Filthmode" Mitchell hooked us up with a bundle of Wizard's Wire- get your own here-

And we are happy to announce we have picked up two sponsors!  So happy to have Element Engineering on board, as we have known Andrew Hammond since high school and he is a great guy and true supporter of Busch and Busch!


We have also been blessed with the help of Thor Drake from See See Motorcycles.  We clicked immediately when we met Thor at the One Motorcycle Show last February, and his support of this project means a lot!

Thanks guys!

Ironhead racer update

This is all just a LOT of mockup-  next up, swapping the front end to a 39mm narrow glide,  wheel swap to 19/18 aluminum shouldered Akronts (maybe), behind the wheel splash guard and air vents, trim upper windhield and install fairing stay off of neck, cut foam for seat, remake swingarm from 1" DOM tube, monoshock or strut?, etc. etc. etc.  Lots more to come!

August Update, pt. 2

Tried our hand and body lead work-  wow, that takes some practice!  Much better than Bondo, though.

These two were the first failed attempts at painting the Davida helmet-  never before seen!  Just not feeling how they came out, so sand down and start over.  Glad we did, because the dart board was way better IMHO.....

More tools in prep for blacksmithing!

The '87 Sportster made it into the Horse Backstreet Choppers

Made these can coolers, for sale in our web store:

Buddy's mustang after all the bodywork, ready for clear coat
Machined some hubs for Drake "Smoking Seagulls" McElroy

Finally started casting the inside panels of our forge / heat treat oven!  So excited to get going on casting, blacksmithing, etc.

The Bultaco made it back from Portland!!!!  It's been on vacation at See See Motorcycles since April

Cranked out 17 of these killer TRIco brass key fobs-  buy them at

Made it to Bonneville-  there was lots of salt!  For all the pics, check out

Made this leather work apron and these wallet lanyards, for sale
