Suzy-Q as Paul likes to call her is based on a one-off 4" up / 1" out DOM seamless tubing rigid chassis designed specifically for this project. The engine is a hybrid version of Harley Davidsons spectacular Twin Cam B. Jim's machine reworked the mill to 120 cubic inches while still maintaining all the reliability the motor company is know for! We’re talking close to 125 horsepower! Of course Paul had to throw his two cents into the motor and added PYO logo’s to the heads as well as some very unique cooling ports and a terrific "Piston" air filter. All that power runs through a Baker close ration 6 speed transmission which makes the bike great to run out on the highway. Paul wanted this bike to handle as nimble as it looks so he chose a Metzler 210 rear tire wrapped around a Black Bike hand built spoke wheel 17 x 7. Everything on this bike had to create a commotion so Paul's entire crew spent the time allotted for the build creating original components front to back! From the hand turned fork legs, the stability minded tweak bar and the incredible headlight that was created from a front belt pulley to the unique crossover exhaust, perfectly placed mid controls, nothing like this bike has ever been seen. The sheetmetal is hand hammered and perfectly compliments the stance of the chassis. Paul even created a one-of a kind 2" belt drive unit that has to be seen to be believed! Gary Crisp created a original "Butterscotch" color for the bike and then perfectly complimented the raised steel graphics with subtle pinstriping in two colors of grey that set off all the brushed finishes. Duanne Ballard finished the project with a hand tooled seat that sports Paul Yaffe Originals on top and commemorates the Build of the bike and the competition that it was designed for underneath. All in all this bike is certainly one of the finest that Paul has ever created and is sure to go down in history as a landmark build for Paul and his talented crew!
