From Stock Harley-Davidson Night Train To Bolt-On Custom

Let’s not forget all those individuals – the majority – who are not custom builders, but just want to easily customize their ride by bolting-on after-market parts without spending a fortune. Custom Chrome Line Manager Rich Fulk used a 2004 Night Train to demonstrate what can be done to give this stock Harley an “old school” vibe using only catalog parts and without breaking the bank. About anyone can accomplish the same result working in a private garage with very simple tools. Of course, all parts were picked from the CCI Catalog with the SKU numbers indicated below for easy ordering from your local motorcycle dealer.

Go for the total package or go step by step following your taste and budget. Freedom Performance Upswept Exhaust System (689824), BDL SS 2″ Open Belt Drive System (612254), Jammer Ribbed “Teardrop” Style Air Cleaner (632968), LePera Hot Rod Solo Seat (641300), Jammer Black Rubber Gator Style Fork Boots (150125), Darrell Hayes Side View Front Marker Lights (15083), Legend L3 Air Ride Suspension Kit (697106), Black 40-Spoke 21 x 2.15″ Front wheel (632525), Avon AM41 MH90 x 21″ Whitewall Front Tire (1012039), Black 40-Spoke 16 x 3.50″ Rear wheel (632257), Avon AM42 MH90HB x 16″ Whitewall Rear Tire (1012045), etc… At your Custom Chrome Dealer.

    Looks like it’s going to break in half!

    Yikes.

    Looking pretty good for a bolt on customization. Problem is that forks are about 1″ too long, making the bike higher in the front (lower frame tubes not parallel to the ground). Kickstand also need to be repositioned (bike leaning too much on left)

    Good God what a bunch of crap. That is just plain ugly and I would not want to be seen wearing the required pirate outfit needed to ride that piece of crap…..

    Jim, if you read, it says it has a Legend Air Ride kit. It’ll be fine at ride height, it looks to be lowered all the way down at the moment.

    Yep, it’s the problem with bikes using air rides. They look good for pictures only in 1 position, not in this one with rear way down and the front of the frame higher than it should be. Except this, no criitic.

    love it. to each his own.

    I’m not one to pick on anything – to each his own, it’s already been said. But that bike looks exactly what it is- a Night Train with some tacky aftermarket parts bolted on in a weak attempt to make it look like something it’s not. If you like that, enjoy.

    Rough crowd tonight. I think it looks good. I think the message here is not everyone can afford, nor have the talent to build a one off custom. Nor turn you stock bike into a custom but with some imagination and not to much cash (all relative) you can bolt on some aftermarket parts on your stock bike and make it your own style from a stock platform, its what ever you make of it.

    Hey guys. Like all chopped/custom/one offs whatever, they are an expression of a person’s own individual tastes, likes and dislikes. I like the idea that there are some custom bolt ons out there for the guy who doesnt have a CNC in his backyard. I personally would go 6 inch dogbones , and dragbars. I woulld prefer black tins with the whitewalls , but overall it’s an old school look with the stance and the upsweep pipes. Bob the ducktail and your on your way. bob-a-glide. Be cool dudes.

    i agree with live2rideglide. its not my taste, each to their own.

    I remember in the late 60’s us kids who couldn’t afford a Schwinn Stingray would take the front fenders off of our Huffys and bolt on a banana seat. We thought they looked cool, history may have changed my opinion. Just sayn’

    Good God what a bunch of crap.

    why take a perfectly good bike and butcher it up unless you need the HD serial number for loan

    one of rolands kits/parts is the way to go if your going to be a TV bolt on bike builder

    Good options to bikers change their bikes for something whid more look.

  15. 15 Jon May 31st, 2010 at 9:26 pm

    Not a big fan of really any of the parts on this bike. But hey ride hard! Seems to me the money and time that got spent on this bike on this could have been more… usefully…forwarded to adding something more substantial to this bike. I have an 2009 Night Train and granted I have spent about 5k on her she looks damn good, I can say I am proud of the choices I made… if you can say the same then screw everyone else and enjoy the wind!
