Velvet Underground Custom

Clay Rathburn is a well known custom bike builder from Atom Bomb Customs. Velvet Underground is one of the most elegant bikes crafted by Clay Rathburn for a client in California. He started out with a water filled engine and an original-numbers-matching neck which was sitting in a shed since 1976. Most of the bike parts were hand fabricated by Clay, including a new fuel tank, fender and oil bag.

The engine was completely rebuilt by Clay and with a single carb TR6 head which makes the life bit easier for the bikes new owner. The final result is yet another outstanding hand build bike from Atom Bomb Customs after Doctor Who.
