Custom Chrome 40th Anniversary Speedway Harley Bagger

As I reported before, this Harley Bagger is one of the 2 customs that Custom Chrome commissioned to celebrate its 40th Anniversary. Built by Kirk Taylor from Custom Design Studios, I had the opportunity to check it out while I was at the Dealers Expo in San Jose, CA. This bike showcases what can be done with a little bit of hard work and of course after doing some shopping in the Custom Chrome catalog. For a few added tricks and a paint job, you will have to contact Kirk…

To help you find your way inside the very thick Custom Chrome Catalog, follows a partial list of what your dealer should order: CCI/Paul Yaffe Stretched gas tank for touring models, BDL 2″ Shorty Open Belt Drive for touring models, Super Trapp 2 into 1 SuperMeg Black Exhaust System, Legend L7 Air Suspension Kit, RevTech Chassis Stabilizer, Dakota Digital Red Readout Gauge Kit, Accutonix Night Series Forward Controls, CDS “Cool Unit” Velocity Stack and Adapter, RevTech Wheels Midnight Series SpeedStar (front, 23 x 3.50″ & rear 16 x 3.50″), RevTech Midnight Series hubs and rotors, Avon AV71 130/60/23 front tire, Avon AM41 140/90/16″ rear tire, etc. Custom Design Studios (photography copyright Michael Lichter)

    Gee, enough of this bike already…. we get it, CCI built a bagger. Drag builds 3 or 4 bikes every year and Bikers Choice does the same. It’s the 5th time at least we read about the CCI anniversary.

    I striping looks like reflective tape. It looks great on trailers but on a bike.

    Add one more set of lights out the back and it could pass for a Goldwing.

    Nothing too exciting here.

    FBI far better !! or Kendals bikes- no use in europe- it rains! no front guard just dont work-too.

    That’s the best they can do??? Its no better than an FBI bike, sorry. I don’t care for either of them.

    Kirk did a great job building a bike using parts out of the CCI catalog. It is a fine example of what can be done using readily available parts for a cost far below what most of the other companies mentioned charge for their wares. Great parts mind you, but not the intent of this build.

    Kirk is an AMAZING and sometimes overlooked builder. This is just a small example of his work and I think its bitchen. You can tell by all of his work that he pours his heart and soul into EVERYTHING he does. I’m still amazed at the craftsmanship that he put into building James Hetfields “Widowmaker” and the Johnny Cash “Bucket Of Blood bike. I think its cool that Custom Chrome asked him to build the 40th anniversary bike and I can’t wait to see whats next. Fuckin-A! Give um hell Kirk!

    Reflective tape, funny Bus, but Kirk makes it work. He did a great job as expected. He is one of those builders that comes up with something unique with each one of his creations. I like the front end lower powdercoated leg with chrome covers, and the primary. Great job Kirk!!!, and CCI!!
