Which style of front end are you going to pick for your next custom? Glide, Hydraulic, Springer or Girder? The first 3 styles are so popular that they can get quite boring to the eye. Designed properly a Girder offers a interesting appearance and good performance. Depending of your project you can go vintage style like the girders equipping the Indian motorcycles in the 30’s and 40’s and since then perfected many times by Earl and Paul Durfee. Or you can go the high tech style with offerings from a couple of companies, and now this new offering from RoosteR Custom Cycles.
For those who don’t know, in December 2009, RoosteR Custom Cycles acquired the intellectual property of Perse Performance front-end and aftermarket parts line, remanufacturing their products and creating new ones like this Girder. It is designed with the sport bike enthusiast in mind and is quite different from anything else on the market today. President Justin Rouse took his inspiration from the past but also from Indy Car racing suspensions to deliver added performance. An exposed dual A arm and coil-over shock provide a very mechanical look, while the solid aerodynamic “blades” combine function with top of the line style.
All billet parts are milled from solid 6061 T6 aircraft aluminum. Fits and tolerances are computer checked and measured to within thousandths of an inch. Only military specification stainless steel bearings are used. The Perse heritage is maintained with a left hand threaded hidden axle secured with the pinch locks. Three high performance suspension packages are available from RoosteR with all shocks manufactured to RoosteR specifications by Penske’s Racing Shock Division.
Finishes range from classic to extreme: Polished aluminum, Natural or ebony chrome, Anodized or Powder coating. Can be ordered with one or two brake caliper mounts that are ready to accept Brembo Radial Calipers available through RoosteR. Can be built to fit all makes and models with a V-Rod set up complete with headlight.
