Jagged Harley Rocker

rocker111rocker211rocker311I wish that many more US official Harley Dealers produce as many customs as their European counterparts do. Can you believe that this feature is again about a creation out of the workshop of German Harley Dealer Thunderbike.
This time, the chosen platform was the FCWC Harley Rocker, since day one a very controversial model because of its trick seat conception and position. A sitting position that almost all custom builders working on the Rocker have rejected to come back to the more traditional Softail setup.

As simple as this Rocker looks, a lot of high end parts went into its design. A single sided swingarm offering an unobstructed view of the 23″ beautiful Thunderbike 5-spoke wheel treated in cream color powdercoat. Rear suspension is traditional under frame setup but with stock Harley shocks replaced by Thunderbikeb Air Ride system.To match the lowered rear of the bike, the Thunderbike Springer type front end was shortened and holds a 23″ wheel equipped with a 320 mm Vegas Wave disc and a 6-piston brake. Modification of the Twin Cam 96″is only cosmetic with ribbed painted rocker boxes also from Thunderbike. Paint by Kruse Design. Full tech sheet is below. Thunderbike Germany.

    The HD Rocker was a fiasco. Look how much needed to be done to make it a very nice bike.

    The rear is 21 not 23 inches. Beautiful looking bike except for the silly ape handlebars.

    Congrats on a beautiful bike. Question, is there enough Rocker left in that build for it to still be called a Rocker?

    I think this is the only Rocker that I like, ever.

    Oil Tank Design “borrowed” from Cole Foster.

    Mark Shubin: looks like H-D rocker original oil-tank and I don´t see a reason to change it 😉

    It looks like they built a whole new bike around a Rocker oil bag.
