    The Bad Ass Motorcycle Modification of the Month Contest- May '016

    Not everyone has a full bike project thread going, however most of you make bobs & bits, tweak things and complete mods to improve bikes in an ongoing process of continuous performance improvement. That never. Ever. Ends. Ever.

    So we at Ichiban Moto are sponsoring the "Bad Ass modification of the month" award !

    The winner will be awarded awesome bragging rights, admiration from their peers, recognition from the international motorcycle community and a sweet trio of Ichiban Moto stickers !
    ( That's right, a full 1/4 dozen of 100% authentic and Bad Ass "cetified" Ichiban Moto Stickers! )

    Post a picture or video of that thing you made this month along with a brief description : That part or tool you had to mod. That whatzit you carved from billet. Or wood. You guys/gals mod, make and alter things in some very creative and practical ways to make things work. And that should be shared, so here is thread to post it !

    At the end of May, we will post a poll of the finalists* for everyone to vote on.

    *a paired down selection of finalists will be selected by the Ichiban Moto staff for you to vote on

    I need some Ichiban stickers real bad! Here's my ram air mod for an old Sportster.

    Take an old air cleaner cover and cut an opening in the front. Go to Wally World and buy a small wire office basket. Cut out a piece of the basket and curve it to fit the air cleaner cover. JB Weld it to the inside of the cover.


    Finished cover, sandblasted, waiting for paint.


    Painted with high-temp flat aluminum paint.


    Installed on the bike and ready to make power.

    Great! I'm sure the voting was close, given the large amount of entries. It is an honor to accept this valuable prize on behalf of the forum. I'll find a prominent spot on my Honda to display one of them, maybe on that blank right-hand side cover...





    PM sent.

    Not going to lie, that ram air mod actually LOOKS decent. Not sure about the pencil box mesh, but hey we have all re-purposed some shit before. At least the finished product looks like something someone would pay money for

    I posted that mod on a couple Harley forums and actually had a few people say they would pay me to make one for them. For my own projects, I work dirt cheap, but those guys wouldn't have been able to afford my rate for making more...ha ha
