Lucky Sucker. A Bolt-On Softail Kit Bike From Custom Chrome.

sexything1sexything2sexything3sexything4sexything5sexything6Custom Chrome, as other large distributors , almost always include in his catalogs examples of bikes customized or built from the ground-up using their custom parts. Parts regrouped in kits with multiple options to satisfy many tastes and budgets. “Lucky Sucker”, also name of this bike, is one of them offering individuals the opportunity to get their Harley (shown is a Softail FXSTD) looking almost like a full blown built-from-the-ground-up bike.

The kit and its parts – sold as a package or individually – is available from both Custom Chrome USA and Custom Chrome Europe, but under different kit names. For those of you in the USA, go HERE. For those in Europe, go THERE. A cCustom Chrome analog supplement with other options is also available HERE. (photography H. Roesler)

    The blondes included!

    Lot’s of photos but none of the actual bolt on hard tail. Yeah, she’s dressed properly for riding.

    Nothing new here. Ugly license plate…

    Pretty darn good looking for a ‘ Bolt On ‘ job ! But ahhh …. you have to supply your own blonde as well as the cool factor [ not included with the kit either ] needed to to attract one 😉

  5. 5 Shifter Oct 24th, 2014 at 8:37 am

    Thegoodlars. Because the license plate you see is for from Europe. Much bigger than here. Nothing can be done about this.

    Pretty good kit.

    I personally think it is ugly and impractical. Take a good bike and ruin the ride with a bunch of Taiwanese bolt on sh_t. All to try and look cool. No Thanks

    And the blonde is sitting on…? Regardless, I like it. Not all bikes, have to be “new and awesome”, they just have to be the one you put together and make your own. I’d like to see a very small front fender to get a little bit of orange up there also, but overall it looks nice and fun to ride.

    It will handle like crap with that big fat tire on a springer with no dampening and all that unsprung weight going up and down. But you’ll be “cool” Yeah, back in the day we used to put struts on prefectly good swingarm bikes too so I guess nothing really has changed………

    Not bad – ‘bolt-on’ is becoming serious business and equally the quality of such bits are now OEM and beyond.

    This is a good-looking kit (as much as you can judge from the pictures). The “Lucky F*cker” kit Custom Chrome introduced first had a few people complaining about the quality – eg required aggressive dressing to get the parts up to built-quality.

    Bolt-on has a lot going for it – eg no/little issues with registration. In many places in the world, shed-built ground-up machines are per definition not road legal and ‘registered’ builders carry such high overheads to keep things up to the qualifying standards, their costs become prohibitive.

    Re the kit itself,

    Personally I am a bit ‘hot-and-cold’ about a dished tank – notably on a Softail. To me a dished-tank is visually heavy and sits better on a rigid bobber with at least a 2 up stretch.

    Then again, I can see a pale yellow (frame painted same color) with white accents and gold leaf script, 16″ – 18″ curvy apes, shiny motor and other bits (eg the springer or even telescopic front), a tooled and distressed seat, mmmm…

    If you like it, go buy it !!!!
    Not for me, but the market will decide, same as it ever does

    There is an hilarious video of this bike at Custom Chrome Europe.

    I guess the big question is…….do they have any in stock?

  14. 14 Anthony Oct 24th, 2014 at 6:47 pm

    Sweet hog … does it come with the broad? 🙂

  15. 15 Boomer Oct 25th, 2014 at 6:41 am

    The bike is hot. The babe is even hotter. 🙂

    that video is a hoot! yessir! must have been a lot of fun.

  17. 17 David King Oct 27th, 2014 at 8:14 am

    That is a great video, indeed.

    One of the ugliest gas tanks I’ve ever seen.

  19. 19 Spritz DeCoochy Oct 27th, 2014 at 12:09 pm

    The lucky F#cker kit was renamed becuase of pressure from J&P Cycles threatining to not carry the product as the name offended their “christian values”. what a shame C.C.I. caved in to satisfy them without at the very least, leveraging their position by negotiating a minimum quantity purchase of the various part #’s. Short sighted on C.C.I.’s part. The original kit also has a modfied Frisco mounted, style tank available that looks much better than the dished tank. For the consumer that fancys themselves a “builder” this is a great value for their dollar as it can radically change the look of their old softail, and doesn’t require a great deal of skill to accomplish.

  20. 20 Woody's Oct 28th, 2014 at 4:16 pm

    @Spritz-Are you sure it wasn’t more shortsighted of CC to name it the Lucky F’r in the first place? I have no purposely Christian values, but I think it was a stupid name for something they’re going to try and sell in the largest volume possible. Marketing 101, and these parts are too mainstream to want to alienate mainstream vendors.

  21. 21 Spritz DeCoochy Oct 29th, 2014 at 11:47 am

    Woody, who knows for sure which direction was more shortsighted. I am sure we could debate the pros & cons of that decision for the name choice. what I percieve as a sign of missing their opportunity was the fact that they caved so quickly to one parts retailers ultimatum, without attempting to negotiate something for doing it. I have heard that the sales numbers before and after did not shift significantly,which I would interpet to mean, the “name” was a non-issue. as far as mainstream goes, that parts line was never intended to target the “mainsteam” rider

  22. 22 Woody's Oct 30th, 2014 at 2:59 pm

    True, long live a free market ☺

  23. 23 BCinSoCal Nov 19th, 2014 at 10:27 pm

    A bike kit named Lucky “f**ker is just about as lame as a shift Rod that says f**k you. These should improve the public image of bike riders. All the wanna be bad asses will say “I don’t give a f**k what people think,” and personally I am a stone atheist, I just think it’s something for the SOA crowd.
