Lethal Strike is a true one off piece, never to be repeated. Wicked Bros. began this build with the concept of combining Old School roots with New Age Style and Innovation. An 88” Pandemonium Generator Style Motor was mated to a Six Speed RSD Transmission using a BDL Top Fuel open Primary. The geometry of the frame is -3” in the down tube, +3” in the backbone and 52 degrees of rake in the neck, the side plates are also mounted 2” further back than stock. Rear Tire is a 300 on an 80 Spoke 18”x10” all Stainless Wheel. There is no brake on the front and a four piston PM Brake on the rear actuated by a PM Contour hand control mounted to the right handle bar. The handlebars are custom made by Wicked Bros. We also made the Custom Suicide Shifter and mounted the PM Contour Hand control directly to it. There are no controls on the Foot Pegs, very clean looking. The Pegs and Grips are from Yaffe. The oil bag is mounted in front of the frame. So where is the fuel? The Fender and Swing arm hold 1.75 gallons of fuel delivered to the carburetor via an electronic fuel pump passing through a fuel pressure regulator. It’s a softail with a Progressive Air Suspension.

A truly unique motorcycle. Styled from the 50's and 60's. PanFry'd is a true one off custom motorcycle. It all starts with the heart of the motorcycle being an Accurate Engineering 93 CI Pan Head power-plant producing 93 Horsepower, a one off frame that incorporates a 1930 Superbell Straight Axle as the down-tube.
The gas tank was hand crafted from .125" thick copper sheet and the oil tank and fender fitting with copper cladding. The attention to detail flows through the entire bike from the old-school wiring to copper oil lines. They are comprised from a perimeter brake in the front and a rear disk brake hidden inside a 1934 Buick drum brake.
With air ride suspension under the seat to handle the big bumps and cure the rough ride of a hard-tail frame. And to touch it all off, an overwhelming amount of hand detailed Florentine styled engraving. A true display of what you can expect from Tough Customs.
