PG 1
Tom Summers Richfield, Minnesota

(ABOVE-Drag style bars came from The Brothers and host Hallcraft master cylinder and VDO speedometer.)

Tom's scoot is low and sleek. Super clean lines follow current trend in uncluttered street machines.

(LOWER LEFT-Engine is basically stock 750 running FuBar pipes and Drag Specialties air cleaner.)

(BELOW Fender is from Ness and carries Cycle Seats padding all of which is supported by Smith Bros. & Fetrow struts.)

PG 2
(ABOVE LEFT Neat electrical box came from the Finch Works. TOP Super clean and narrow girder is from Smith Bros and Fetrow. Light is Lucas quartz and front brake is from Hallcraft. Wheel is 18'? ABOVE Super low rider frame is the "Street Digger" from Brothers Custom Engineering. There aren't many bikes this clean around the Richfield, Minnesota area and Tom's bike draws all sorts of attention. No hassle here, lust an interested party. Gas tank is from Paughco. Bike was sprayed with black lacquer by owner and then pin striped by D.J. Eckel.)
 

(ABOVE-Detailed pin striping was done in green and yellow to stand out against the black backqround. Acorn nuts from colony were used wherever possible. Molding was used for clean up only. RIGHT The SB&F struts were originally made to fit a sporty, but Tom modified them and the rear fender ~o clear huge Uniroyal radial tire. Fender was widened 1 - 1/2'? Rear brake assembly is stock Honda. Notice the neat folding passenger pegs. Tom says his low rider sits only 3 feet off the ground at the top of the handlebars. Now that's low for a streetster!)
