Crime Scene Choppers Rapide Air Cleaner

It’s one of my favorite air cleaners because of its strong art-deco lines. The evocative design of Crime Scene Choppers Rapide Air Cleaner takes you back to another era, exactly what you want for your vintage, new old school or neo-retro project. This Air Cleaner features the distinctive Rapide scallop design polished on the satin-finished body with a brass grill or, all in chrome.  On most bikes I would paint the body of the Air Cleaner to match your bike for that unique custom look.  The Rapide Air Cleaner fits S&S Super E or G, and stock CV carburetors, as well as a Mikuni carburetor with an adapter (sold separately).  It includes the stainless steel mounting plate, attachment clip, and filter support screen plus all stainless steel hardware and two filter elements (one high flow and one standard). Retail Price $319.00 to $339.00.  The full Rapide line includes Tail Lights and Headlight. 100% made in the USA.  For more information check it out at Crime Scene Choppers or give a call to Joe on my behalf at 831.406.0126.

    Nice, but how can a cast piece of metal cost 3 hundred bucks.

    JD. What about the cost for design, cost of mold and the fact that most motorcycle parts are produced in small quantities. Let’s add cost of chrome or brass plating for the grille, shipping back & forth to platers, assembly and marketing (ads, catalogs), and it’s made in America. JD, you have no clue about manufacturing. Gorgeous piece by Crime Scene at a very reasonable rice.

    For me the S&S teardrop air cleaner takes me back to my yesterdays and that is my definition of retro.

    Major props to an innovative company making it on its own terms.
    Frm my POV the price for such a distinctive piece is reasonable considering the marketplace.

    Innovation costs money, its why we see so little of it.

    Beautiful. Sure looks a lot like the air cleaner Cole Foster built for my wife’s bike, Special K, 3 years ago. J
