Custom «Achuma» named after the South American cactus known for its hallucinogenic properties is part of the old traditions and Harley motocrosser. Its creator is a workshop Kraus Motor Co, located in the shadow of the mighty redwoods of Northern California. Head of the workshop 35-year-old Californian Kraus.
Collection of old engineering books, a good dose of common sense and curiosity team replaced the formal education and by means of trial and error, they managed to create their custom . The main aim in the construction was as follows – to make the bike as light as possible. "I think many customizers tend to build stories using a lot of metal , because they rarely represent the quantity required to maintain an optimal balance. Adding unnecessary weight as a result of the suspension has to sacrifice efficiency, speed and acceleration dynamics. "
On Achuma it was not used any ink droplets – a fully-metal motorcycle. As for the suspension, front Kraus established traditional Springer fork, modified air damper, the latter was originally intended for downhill, set on mountain, racing bikes tuned up to 7, 56 cm. Stroke. The rear suspension consists of a pendulum is equipped with two shock absorbers to move 14.6 cm.
The engine power was used carburetors 93-inch high-compression S & S. Engine power was about 90 hp, which is not bad considering the very small weight of the motorcycle.
