Rocking The Harley-Davidson Rocker

The Harley model FCWC, or Softail Rocker, with its controversial “perched” seat made necessary because the rear fender was moving with the swingarm to which he was mounted, didn’t make it in the 2012 line up. Of course, plenty are around and are always a very good base for those looking for a nice riding custom Harley instead of a radical custom motorcycle.
As inspiration, one built by Thunderbike Germany, an official Harley-Dealer with a full independent  custom department. No much to say about it, no heavy modification or fabrication being involved.

Particularity, “Rocking” takes its particular stance from the use of a 23″ front wheel with a 21″ rear. For the rest, mostly a bolt-on assembly of very nice parts.

Below the full tech sheet to help you prepare your custom parts shopping list.

    Just my style…I like it a lot. Great job to ThunderBike AG. Someone in this country should follow suit with something similar. Yeah I know, it will have already have been done before, but who cares. It’s just flat cool!
