Since opening “Brass Balls Bobbers”, custom builder Dar Holdsworth has only one mantra “Building The Above Average Bike For The Average Joe”. The state of the economy being what it is, Dar just added to his philosophy “…For Much Below The Price Joe Could Ever Expect To Pay Today”. And to prove it, he tells me that on Saturday morning at the Cincinnati V-Twin Expo (Dealers go to the “New Product Showcase” display) he is going to unveil an all-new designed high quality bike called “Brass Balls Bobber Model 1” for an amazing retail price of $15,995 with features rivaling $20,000 and beyond other mass-produced custom motorcycles.
Yes, in good businessman, Dar Holdsworth is shrinking his margins to the strict minimum to make his custom bikes accessible to the largest number of bikers and at the same time give to Dealers a model driving sales without them to invest much. Although you will have to wait till’ Saturday morning to see “Model 1” in exclusivity in my Blog, as a teaser I give you a partial list of the parts that Dar is using: Tranny: 6 speed.
