2003 Eastern Hercules Pro

Eastern Hercules retro-custom tank project

Tankenstein! 

Parts from the mid-school; Blood of the old-school.

Inspired by an era when seats were for sitting, drivetrains were huge, bars were at arms length, and spokes were just, well... unnecessary

I wanted a beast that was low-maintenance, strong as a girder, and scattered light in every direction. The quest for chrome 4130 and silver CNC-machined 6061 T6 took some time, because most everything at the time was either painted or anodized black. For the most part, I targeted heavy parts for brute strength, but the carbon-graphite Tuffs have pretty low rotational weight. I recently replaced all of the soft parts to freshen it up.

Here it is... ***Blinnngggg!!!***
