This one started the desire to build. This started as some ones idea and finished as some one else's completed project.
The roller, engine, and trans sat in a garage for some time and changed ownership, beginning the final build and completion of the project.
The roller came from a custom shop in Florida. The engine and trans are Rev Tech components out of Custom Chrome. The rear fender is a blank that we customized integrating the tail light and welding the struts for a clean look. The oil tank is custom made by us. We also built the head pipes and capped them with a Super Trap muffler. The seat was done by Kreun Kustom Upholstery. The paint was applied by 605 Custom. This bike has plenty of power and style to make it very fun to ride.
One of our projects built for style and speed. On the style side of things we installed a set of LA Choppers bars, a Saddleman seat, a bag, side cover, and fender kit from Top Shop Baggers of Mitchell SD, and a custom front fender wrapped around a 21" Costal Moto wheel that is matched on the rear. All topped of with a smooth gloss black finish applied by Aerhart Rods & Restoration.
Now for the speed portion of the project. The motivation for the project started with the desire for turbo power, so we installed a Trask turbo system with a custom cam, Trask billet clutch basket, and a Thundermax ECM. Then to stay in the power we installed a Pingel electric speed shift kit.
This project turned out to be a very subtle, stylish attention getter that is fun to ride, and sounds pretty cool.
This build was started many years ago and ended in our shop. The idea behind this project was to start with a 68' Harley Davidson shovel head and a Harley Davidson 4 speed trans. and build on that power train. The frame was custom built out of a shop in Rapid City. The springer front end is a combination of the rear legs from Denver Choppers and the front gun barrels by Toby @ Backlash. The gas tank is a Drag Specialties tank with a stock Harley dash. The intake is contains a Keihin CV carb and a K&N air cleaner kit. The foot controls are custom built. The exhaust is custom built in house. The rear fender blank was customized with welded struts in house as well. This motorcycle has a foot clutch with a jockey shift. If you'll notice there is not a front brake, so to make this easier to ride it has a centrifugal clutch to make start and stop easier. One of the disadvantages of the clutch setup is it disables the kickstart option, so that is just for looks as long as that clutch setup is in place.
As for the finish work, the frame was powder coated by MSI Belle Fourche SD, and the tins were painted by 605 Customs. This bike turned out to be a nice vintage/modern combination of components.
This project was a all out drive to attain a practical sleek custom. The style started with a 30" RC Components wheel. The front end kit came from HHI, including the fender. We then installed the fuel tank from Bagger Nation meet with a Drag Specialties seat customized by Gould Upholstery. The rear fender, bags, side covers all came from Top Shop Baggers. The audio is all from Rockford Fosgate. We then installed a set of Fat Bagger 12" bars with a LA choppers cable kit. Many of the engine and transmission covers, including the primary cover and rear wheel were powder coated by MSI of Belle Fourche SD. The color was applied by Jay R's Autobody In Dickenson ND.
Now for the fun part, the performance upgrades. The cylinders were bored, with some high compression pistons installed, a set of high lift cams, a billet cam plate, and oil pump supplied from S&S Cycle. The intake is also from S&S. For the tune we installed a Dyno Jet tuner. The rear suspension is a JNR air ride kit with the addition of a center stand from Sothern Oregon Baggers. Last we installed an exhaust system from Drag Specialties.
This bike is nice to look at and a lot of fun to ride.
