6 Over Movie Screening

Join us for our Welcome to Winter get together and 6 Over movie screening at 47 Industries. Saturday November 10, 2012. Doors at 7PM. Movie at 8PM. 59 Second Ave (behind somerset spring) Raritan, NJ 08869

    We will be showing the film on the wall drive in style. Only it'll be inside and without vehicles. Come hang out, shoot the breeze, and maybe pick up a copy for yourself.  BYOB (beverage store nearby).  No admission. No shut down time. We leave when the last body gets dragged out the door.

Truckin away

We've been working on this truck a little at a time over the last 2 years as the customers could swing the build. We've installed a lift so he can stack 2 race cars. We've shortened up the front of the box removing the overhang and removing 4000 lbs of structure to get it under weight. The last thing was to rebuild his lounge area. Previously he had a 4' 6" ceiling that you could only kneel or sit in. getting suited up at the track was done outside or in the back. He wanted a more livable space so we gutted it and built a new lounge area. 6' 6" ceiling with a hatch and ladder leading to a bunk level 48" tall above the lounge. All insulated and lined with embossed aluminum panels. Air conditioned upstairs and downstairs. Still needs a little trim painting and carpet in these pix.

They're here

First short run of 2" over tails are done and ready to go. Please call 908-526-8865 for info, pricing or optional upgrades (axle/spacer/adjusters, oil tanks, battery trays, fender mounts, seat mounts, etc). As always locals are welcome to come to the shop and scope them out in person.

We put a lot of time and thought into the design of these to deliver you a good looking, functional and most importantly quality part for your build. All hand bent DOM tubing and TIG welded in our fixture. All done in house, right here in the air quality capital of the east coast- New Jersey!

New Sportster tails from 47 Industries

Attention Evo Sportster owners!!!

You can now keep your VIN numbers and have a good looking frame. 2" over tails are now available for 86-03 Evo Sportsters. We added a kick to the backbone to ease off the dreaded "seat bump".  We made the S-bent seat post to give you more room for your oil tank. A 5" round tank fits nice without notching and looks the part. Stock factory battery fits between the post and the fender. Factory caliper fits between the frame tubes. Sprotors fit too. We kept the lower rails low all the way back to the fender for sleeker (and more big-twin-ish) look. The ground clearance with a 16" x 5.00 tire is just over 4 1/2" under the battery area. All DOM .120" wall tubing. 1 1/4" lower tubing matches the diameter of the factory frame and 1 1/8" uppers eliminate the bulky look. Bent in house and jig assembled and all TIG welded. Axle plates are 1/2" thick.

Installation is as simple as it gets. 3 tubing cuts and welds and a couple plug welds and you're done.  Once you file and sand the seams it will appear to be a factory rigid frame instead of an added-on hardtail.

Upgrades are available: Axle adjusters, axle kits, battery trays, oil bags, caliper mounts, etc are able to be added on to make your build as easy as possible without all the parts guessing and fiddling around.

4" overs will be available in a couple weeks. Other custom lengths are available.

More details available by email mike@47fab.com or by calling the shop 908-526-8865
