Custom Built by HDW

Just got this pic from my Buddy Andrei at HDWheels. These are the new Bob rims, check out the deep offset on the fat rear :D I tell ya, THIS is why we only build with Andrei's Apollo rims!

Velocity Stacks

Been asked from some friends on the forum to post pix of the new kit. Ok so this is all I have & it's VERY raw, no breathers on and no back plate. Full kits being made nxt week & will post up but for now take a couple of steps back from your screen :D

Cleaning a Softail

Heres just a really bad pic! It shows the main spine of a Rocker and a cool place to re locate the coil. The actual work to do this is way less than equivalent on a Dyna, it's almost like Harley once thought of mounting it there.

The whole coil thing with HD has always jarred with me, really never understood why they place them where they do.

Anyway, this is a neat little mod and all you need is the Taylor lead kit:

One more time !

Ok, I promise, this is the last build up of the Bob. From now on we buy in fresh Hogs and cut them up!

For now I am doing a tubular swingarm, 240 rear on all new & very trick Apollo wheels, pulley brake, open primary, Pintail & dummy oil bag, Rocker tank, new pipe, bars, lights and our new Velocity Stack AC with breather catch tank.

Hopefully we got enough time before Bournemouth !!

Keeping the Headbone Clear

So to keep everything clean, run the headlight wires tight out of the shell & down through the lower tree, then route straight into the frame by drilling a 10mm hole to the lower front of the ign switch. 10mm allows the use of a rubber grommet and still is large enough for the wires:

Tank work

I know I keep going on about it, but my latest obsession is cutting up tanks. This is the Street Bob tank that's going on a Rocker, it's now in at paint which means I have no idea when we will see it again !! However this is the finished fab work. Next up is a tank for the Bob that I have notched and split in two so the battery and all other electrics can be hidden. Bottom line, I'm going to be doing this notching a lot :D

Rocker Motor

Always loved the vintage look of gloss black barrels. With this motor we went with flat, textured finish on other random covers and flat black anodising on our collets, timing cover etc. Gotta love that Twin Cam. What I really want to do is get our rocker covers made ASAP. As for this motor, we just need Harley to send us the RIGHT!!! parts and we are done:
