You ask me what to do with your recent stock Harley-Davidson Twin-Cam model. What about this example, a 2010 Harley Softail customized by another creative official Harley-Davison dealer. To look so custom, this modified Harley required to be stripped down to the frame to have some brackets removed because unecessary and all welds cleaned before molding and repainting.
Bike was lowered 2″ via adjustable shocks in the rear and a 2 inch under Paughco Springer front end. Swingarm is also slightly modified to accept a combo driveside sprocket and rotor assembly. Gas tank is a modified version of the stock one and the rear fender was hammered at the workshop to perfectly follow the 17″ rear wheel running a Metzeler tire.
Hole punched battery and regulator covers are also a nice touch, both fabbed in house. To complete the retro treatment, this new Bobber/Racer is equipped with a NYC Choppers oil tank, a Crime Scene Choppers brass headlight attached very low on the left leg of the Springer and a matching brass taillight. Factory 1584 cc Engine and 6-speed transmission went from bland to very attractive via a full kit of Roland Sands Design Twin Cam grooved covers (rocker boxes, timing, ignition, derby, inspection, trnsmission.) Performance Machine provided the foot and hand controls installed on 1930 speedster handlebars, with brass grips and pegs for a retro feel. Glass/brass air breather is from 0571 Garage and Megaphone exhaust system were ordered at Vance & Hines. And for good luck (!) the bike is painted in machine green and features the number 13 racing sign. Shaw Speed And Custom Harley-Davidson in Sussex, UK. (photography H. Roesler)
