Street Racer

First, mentioning that this creation by French shop DUB Performance is road legal in France and may get very soon the same status all over Europe, should please my American readers always wondering how much they can customize their ride while still getting it titled and insured…

On this project, owner Fred Duban collaborated with Todd Silicato  (Todd’s Cycles in Huntington Beach, CA) for the conception of the frame. Then, he designed and fabricated all bodywork, gas tank and rear fender in which is incorporated the oil tank. The empty space under the seat let him install a VTT shock. Both wheels come from HD Wheels  (rear is 280/40/20, front is 120/70/21) and are dressed in Avon tires.

For a racer attitude Fred used his own proprietary mid-controls. Bars come from Italian Rizoma in which has been incorporated a mini gauge from Motogadget. Power comes from a 1850cc S&S engine coupled to a Baker tranny. Open belt system is a Primo Belt system inside a Dub Performance kit. Price to get one like that? Just south of  40,000 euros (about $48,000). Dub Performance.

    That’s an awesome looking bike! I’d like to ride one like that. Like any bike it’s all about getting the right parts when you need them.

    This is my kind of cruiser…good bar, mid-mount foot controls, cool wheels, good front suspension & brakes. Nice stance and style

    That color is down-right sensual. The lines are purely erotic. I don’t know if I want to eat it or F@#& it.

    Great lines. Nice blend of ol’ skool styling cues with modern technology and performance. Job well done.

    I am a bit of a novice at these types of bikes… but it talks about a shock under the seat… is it FOR the seat I wonder? Sure doesn’t look like any fo the frame holding the rear wheel has any movement potential at all. Very cool looking bike though

    Footpegs and controls hard to see. Blackness. This is a ridgid frame. The shock is for the seat.
