CUSTOM CHROME EUROPE PRESS RELEASE - PUBLICATION FREE OF CHARGE With the rear end set rigid, the fender is sitting just above the rear disc wheel.
CUSTOM CHROME EUROPE PRESS RELEASE - PUBLICATION FREE OF CHARGE aggressive look wanted. To adjust the height on both sides, Martin developed and machined his own adapter for the right mounting bracket. The riding position does prefer smaller sized people, riding position is „Dragstyle“. No doubt about that! N N N The early 96 Cubic Inch Twin Cam of 2008 is not really „the burner“ to race on the next dragstrip, but better than the original 88 and by far more powerful than the Evolution motor. Engine upgrades for this project are predominantely of optical nature, as the covers were swapped for Roland Sands Design covers on the Rocker boxes and clear Cam Cover. N N N The primary cover on the left side is a new EMD prototype part, reminiscent of the 1936 Knucklehead primary – now already in production and in stock at Custom Chrome Europe in different versions in black and bare aluminum. You may look for the EMD „B-Boy“ primary covers. On the right motor side, Joker Machine‘s „Omega“ air filter offers a perfect match to the finned RSD parts – and the exhaust system is a new combination of BSL prototype pipes with a homologated Dr. Jekill & Mr. Hyde muffler system. „Homologated“ in this case partially, since the muffler comes from Dr. Jekill & Mr. Hyde‘s BMW parts program. But knowing the quite active Dutch manufacturer, it won‘t be long ‚till this setup will be Harley-conform too. N N N There is much more in this project than what is visible on photos, limited to two dimensions. Check out the pushbuttons in the triple trees and minimized pushbutton switches on the handlebars. Note the clever re-routing of cables to hide them from view where ever possible. Every detail on this bike is carefully executed and built to perfection. And all components have been homologated. No doubt that this is one „Bolt On And Ride“ bike that will see extensive use in the coming months – and the first ride-out at Mecrin‘s Old School Swap Meet and Bike Show underlined the „hard riding“ capabilities of Marin Becker‘s creation. This ain‘t no machine for the faint-hearted – this is a hardcore ride!
