Motto of the Night

Kustom Forty-Eight

"The Silver Bullet pays tribute to the old timber speedway racers. The trick here was to exaggerate the racing lines by inverting the standard bars. Then added to the Old Skool racing look with a radical heavy metal flake paint job with contrasting powder blue pinstripes, accents and wheels and a wicked Harley-Davidson Brawler seat. White wall tires finish off the heritage styling and detailing is taken care of by various Chrome and Black parts from the 2011 Harley-Davidson Accessories Catalog. Performance is enhanced with a Screamin’ Eagle Race Tuner, Stage 1 Air Kit and Vance & Hines 2-1 Exhaust, wrapped in Screamin’ Eagle Exhaust Wrap. Keeping it all cool is a Genuine Oil Cooler." Says Sunshine Coast Harley-Davidson at Maroochydore on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, AU.

New School

The PS-8900 is a single adjustable, low cost, entry level shock; while the PS-8970 comes directly from Formula One and separates high and low speed compression adjustment like no other shocks on the market.

Sometimes what is not seen is more important than what is. The 1 inch diameter steering stem is cut from 17-4 precipitation hardened stainless steel. This is the toughest stainless steel available. Not only is it tough, but received considerable attention in the design process. Great care was taken to ensure that all of the turning torque from the handle bars was transmitted through the steering stem and not through the suspension. This was accomplished by splining the steering stem shaft where it passes through the upper “triple tree”. For the lower end, a ¾” shaft is threaded into each side of the “lower tree” and pins into the steering stem.

If you take a close look at the design you will find similarities too many older bicycle front ends. Designer Juston Rouse has a love for the classic mechanical styling of these older pieces of art which inspired Perse Performance's New School Vintage line. RoosteR Custom Cycles introduce to you the first front end in this line, "Classic." It can be built to suit any frame configuration, as well as a complete bolt on kit for all H-D Sportster models. This front end is available in polished stainless steel as well as standard DOM tubing with a powder coated finish.
