Did you ever happen to buy a motorcycle and feel that there’s something missing in what concerns your new acquisition? Something such as a….third wheel for example. It seems that this motorcycle enthusiast did and with incredible results. This is the Harley-Davidson V-Rod Trike, definitely a unique machine which satisfies the riding demands of those who simply can’t stick to the standard two-wheeled version.
Remember the Harley-Davidson Sportster dressed up for the wild west? If not, this picture will surely remind you of it. Presenting to you the Motorcycle Mustang!
Featuring a massive V-twin engine developing precisely one horsepower, this beast only needs a flame paintjob, foamy rider and passenger seat, leather saddlebags as well as taillights and a fancy number plate just so that the town’s serif would allow you to cruise peacefully.
“You got to do something about those loud pipes cowboy!”
Probably Star’s most appropriate motto would be “A Star for everybody” as they offer different, but close sized engines to power a variety of models that are meant to suit all possible riding demands. Take the V Star 1100 lineup for instance. This fills in the gap between the V Star 1300 and V Star 950 with three similar and yet so different models, the Classic, the Silverado and the Custom. So which one suits you best?
Michael Jackson will sell his police spec Harley-Davidson Road King together with more than 2000 items from his Neverland ranch during a five-day auction in Beverly Hills, California. Julien’s Auctions organizez the event which will take place between April 22 and 25.
As reported, part of the money will go to charity, but most will end up in the pop star’s continuously shrinking pocket.
The Italians from blog triumph che passione with the help of Pio have imagined a British power cruiser perfectly suitable to compete with the 2009 Yamaha VMAX. In their vision, the Triumph Rocket III RR also develops 200 horsepower and it is fitted with suspensions and brakes taken straight off the Daytona model and modified to match the cruiser.
All possible extra weight is eliminated and the bike reduced to its bare essence. An Arrow exhaust with titan silencers will be fitted as well as Brembo brakes with huge wave discs.
No doubt about it, these guys ca really work with their computers and create an exact result of their imagination, but we reckon that this is what the Triumph Rocket III RR will remain.
The owner of this unusual motorcycle is most likely a Triumph Rocket III fan that couldn’t really afford the real thing, but with an innovative mind and a lot of work achieved his own interpretation of that name. This bodywork that would make any killer whale jealous does look like a Rocket, but it’s actually a retired drop tank (external disposable fuel tank) which wasn’t actually dropped during his career.
I don’t know where people get their hands on these things, but I love it despite the fact it has no purpose on this earth.
All riders are very happy about their new bikes, especially if they had it custom made, but designing it yourself and ending up being the winner of your very own creation is indeed something else. Harley-Davidson has announced the winner of their “Build It and Win It” contest and made one lucky women extremely happy.
Talented Libby Hitchcock from Dallas, Georgia has used the interactive web tool and built her dream 2009 Harley-Davidson Softail Cross Bones motorcycle and it is now the lucky winner of the Build It and Win It contest. It means she won the precise motorcycle that she designed and shows how we all should give it a shot as soon as we hear about such contests.
Harley-Davidson knows that their Sportster models don’t look that good with a windscreen on, but they weren’t meant to do so in the first place so why bother. Still, riders are taking these bikes on the interstate where they happen to encounter different problems. The American manufacturer’s response is damn funny and it results from the video attached below.
