Atom Bomb's Most Radical Bonneville Ever [Photo Gallery]
The swingarm of the donor bike was reused with the completely new frame made from scratch. However, two major obstacles slowed Clay in his work. The frame was already slender and has a gorgeous stance, but none of the tanks he tried for both fuel and oil seemed to go with the rest.
In the end, he got a grip and came up with a split fuel tank with an edgy design and a rather uncanny look. Adam loved it and it turned out that the solution was a wonderful one, given the fact that the bike looked extremely sleek.
Since adding an underseat oil tank was out of the question, Clay decided to build a rear cowl and house the oil there, Even though some might say it looks a bit too superbike-ish, the tail of the Atom Bomb Special is as nifty as it gets.
The engine overhauled and bored a little more for cleaner cylinders, Clay went on and fabricated the rest of the bike: bespoke exhausts, a special seat, bars and foot controls. The bike now rides on an island in New Jersey and even if it needs a lot of visits to the gas station, Clay says she rides like a dream. Via BikeEXIF.
