Tempus Viator by Paul Cox Industries 

Very rare opportunity to own a genuine Paul Cox Industries chopper without having to get in line behind Brad Pitt, Steven Tyler, etc. 

Paul Cox worked at Indian Larry's side from Psycho Cycles to Gasoline Alley, until Larry passed.  Paul was Larry's best friend and most trusted right hand.

Today Paul Cox is considered one of the most, if not THE most talented chopper builders in the world.. 

Paul Cox bikes, Indian Larry Legacy bikes, and Indian Larry bikes don't come up on eBay often. 

These bikes are exclusive.  Not just anyone owns one.

These bikes are literally hand made, not just hand-assembled.  Paul machines a lot of the parts, and that costs a lot of money.  

Paul has built fewer than 10 motorcycles in the last 4 years, but each one is astonishing in it's fit and finish and overall design.

Paul Cox is an artist, a true craftsman and a world-class blacksmith.  The engine was polished and ported. It looks like a Rolex inside..

Maybe Paul's most aggressive design yet, this shovelhead dragster is imbued with a TITANIUM GIRDRAULIC front end.
Paul's original leather-clad Berserker had a Stainless Steel Girdraulic front suspension.  The difference in weight between the steel assembly and the titanium assembly is somewhat shocking.

This is the first titanium girdraulic front suspension ever seen.
Lowering unsprung weight dramatically vs. it's steel cousins, (according to physics) increases acceleration.

Tempus Viator by Paul Cox Industries

Brad Pitt has a few Paul Cox bikes (Boneshaker, When Push Comes to Shove), Steven Tyler purchased the Wild Child trike.

It's a small club.

Tempus Viator was just completed this winter 2013.

Tempus Viator was featured at the Brooklyn Invitational Motorcycle Show last fall in NYC (September, 2013) albeit without the incredible seat that Paul carved for it, and a different exhaust setup.  Paul changed the exhaust after the BI show, and finished the seat a few weeks later.  


The seat is arguably one of the finest Paul Cox originals ever made.  Easily top 10....  See the drawing and the finished product in the pics.  

Seat detail

Copper hard-lines with brass fittings for oil and fuel.

Tempus Viator by Paul Cox Industries

Here is a unique opportunity to take immediate delivery of a brand new Paul Cox custom chopper. 

  • Harley Davidson Shovelhead engine with fins shaved
  • Morris Magneto
  • PCI Rigidaire seat suspension w/ compressor
  • Custom "off-the-charts" Paul Cox saddle
  • Titanium Girdraulic forks / front suspension
  • Copper hard-lines with brass fittings.. 
  • Jay Brake, PCI premium parts
  • Wire lace wheels by Paul
  • Kick only - no battery - Magneto powered 100%

This bike features engravings and details of the $10 bill.  Featuring the portrait of Alexander Hamilton who was the first Secretary of the Treasury under George Washington.  Hamilton authored 51 of the Federalist Papers.  He was also the founder and CEO of The Bank of New York - the first stock listed on the NYSE (BK) and the oldest bank in the USA.

The seat, and the gears motif throughout the bike echo a bank vault time clock mechanism, hence "Tempus Viator", or time machine.

From the copper hardlines to the handmade tank and fender mounts, this bike is clearly one of a kind.

Steel, copper, brass, aluminum, titanium and leather.

Very mechanical and timeless. 

I commissioned this bike directly with Paul and paid for it in full.  

Full set of pictures on hand documenting the complete build.
I lived in NYC when I originally commissioned it, and have since moved to Asia where importing it is prohibitive due to duties and taxes. 

The bike has not yet been titled.  
It is brand new.  The only person to ride it so far is Paul Cox.

Bike is currently at Paul Cox Industries in Brooklyn, NY.
