Triangulated swingarm

Today we will mostly be welding.  Really enjoyed doing this chrome moly triangulated swingarm designed for a 300 tyre.

Eat At Chef Wong's

People are always asking us about t-shirts.  We haven't had any in stock for a while now and have totally failed to get our ar$es in gear and sort out some new ones.  Well that's all about to change with this Ramones inspired shovelhead designYAYY!!  

Our friend Eleonora at Air Kustom Design produced this original artwork as a thank you note and we loved it so much we decided we wanted to wear it :)

So huge thanks to Eleonora for the design.  The new t-shirts are being printed as I type and will be available in the webshop in a couple of weeks.  We will also have these t's available at the Kickback 8 Custom Motorcycle Show which takes place at Stoneleigh Park Exhibition Centre (Warwickshire) from 16-17th April 2016.

Shiny shiny Skink tail fin

This is the tail fin / oil cooler that I've made from 316 sheet for The Skink.  It's this guys fault that I've ended up ditching the tank I've been working on for 3 months and swapping it for an ally one.

Nearly done, just a bit more TIG work & polishing left 🚀

Going all Voodoo (fender) in the packing room

We've got orders piling up at the moment so we've been working flat out to get everything shipped. This little convocation of shiny babies (what do you call a group of Voodoo Fender Kits?) is destined for Custom Chrome.  Anyone want to help with some boxing up?

You can get your grubby hands on the Voodoo Fender through your local Custom Chrome dealer or direct from us here - Harley Davidson Voodoo Fender
