It’s still not really my “thing” but I do appreciate the craftsmanship.
There’s already a whole universe of blogs that cover modded Harleys so I generally don’t get in to them too often. But I’m making an exception in this case. This bike at a glance looks like a typically breathed on softtail but taking a closer look you can see that a lot of very high quality one-off custom work went into it. You start to notice that there really isn’t much that’s original on the bike.
Ted Brecheisen writes in with the details:
I’m presenting a couple of pics of bike that a friend of mine built. He had just backed it out of the shop to give it a ride to the Super Bowl party in downtown Indy.
This is a hand-made world class custom by award winning Jim Guy (J.B. Custom Parts) Indianapolis, IN. The frame was made by him. The tank, fenders and oil tank were hammered and rolled out from sheet stock by Jim. This thing looks like it is a slightly modified stocker…not. Here are a few of the unique features:
– 21″ x 3.25 wheels on both ends. This in it’s self is a tough thing to do on a full fender soft tail.
– 124 cu. in. S&S puts out some big h.p. Has Twin Tech electronic fuel injection.
– S&S 6-speed.
– custom made headers and exhaust.
– Performance Machine floating front disc brake.
– Danny Gray custom made seat.
This bike is brimming with custom details that are hard to notice, even from a trained judges eye.
Thanks for your site!!
