Transform Your Stock Harley Softail In A Tough Exile Machine.

exile-brochureDidn’t have much time in Cincinnati to talk to Russell Mitchell, himself also very busy showing his new wares at the V-Twin Expo. But he told me he would send me the info about his new line of parts conceived to transform a stock Harley Softail into a tough Exile machine. In a few words, Exile form and Harley function. His new catalog “Hard Parts For Stock Softails” features three of Russell’s own Harleys that have each been given a full makeover. The new range is extremely comprehensive offering everything from front-ends, wheels and primaries right down to covers, adapters and relocation kits. All the parts are completely of the bolt-on type and offer an easy, affordable route to a killer custom ride. To get your copy of “Hard Parts For Stock Softails” simply send $5 and your address to Exile Cycles, 13209 Saticoy Street, North Hollywood, CA 91605, USA. Or you can download a PDF file of the full catalog by making the jump to Exile Cycles (this week, Russell is at the Daytona Roadhouse on Main Street)

    I have always liked Russell’s Basic-Black-Bad-Ass bikes. The stock softail conversion is a great idea!

    I believe a lot of of shops will return to modifying stock bikes in this way. It eliminates issues with CARB, NHTSA, Etc, and you can own as many as you like… insurance is no problem, resale is easy (with Harley title), and you still get the look you want.
    Back to the basics of customizing.

    Motorcycles are NOT for everybody and the sooner people get that out of their heads the sooner people will quit legislating us to death and training us to die with their methods and methodology.

    Rodent has a good clue to what they are all about. The women are supposed to look better than the bikes. When the goin’ gets tough and it is time to get down to the business of riding, there aren’t too many that wanna bling thing.

    Too basd H-D marketed their “Dark” series to the young. It may go over better if they market to those affected by tough economic times. Just a thought for a wider appeal.

    Mike , It could not have been better said. Some times the students have better insight than the professor HD.

    Russell, call me when you do a kit for Victory! Please! Maybe take a base 09 Jackpot with that 106ci motor and the 250 rear tire and have at it…

    I agree. I spent the last few months of last year taking thousands of dollars in billet off my Fatboy and going with black powder coated parts, stock rubber pegs and a new paint job consisting of satin clear over black to look like primer. I did it all for myself just to give it a new attitude and a new bike feel without the new bike price tag. I was pleasently suprised to take a first place at Sac Easyrider and again at Sac Autorama. I didn’t do it to please the judges, but was very satisified to see they liked what I built. Now,…. what to do with a few thousand dollars in billet bling……

    as always, Mike, you use the perfect words to express truth! Motorcycles are NOT for everyone! In Daytona I saw a guy (from FL) with a t shirt that said “LEGALIZE FREEDOM” peace
