HD Nightrain custom pays tribute to Johnny Cash
Harley-Davidson enthusiast and Johnny Cash fan Julian Grindall commissioned Shaw Speed and Custom Shop to build him what he calls the “Get Rhythm” motorcycle, which is actually a tribute to Johnny Cash.
Talking about his inspiration source, Grindall said: "For me & the creation of a Johnny Cash tribute bike was quiet simple, the love of motorcycles especially Harley-Davidson and the music of an iconic performer & song writer."
Dubbed the Johnny Cash bike, this custom is based on a 2004 Harley-Davidson Nightrain and it features a multitude of PM parts such as the wheels, Phatail kit and controls, just to mention a few. It also received an RSD Vintage seat and gas tank after being significantly lowered in a successful attempt to make it look sleeker.
The custom paintjob was signed by Image Design and although black is the dominating color this is surely one bike that won’t pass unnoticed, but we just can’t see what makes it a tribute to Johnny Cash apart from “the title of the bike “Get Rhythm” was an obvious choice. This great song of Johnnies describing the rhythm of the shoe shine boy betting the blues and the rhythm of the Harley V twin, perfect.”
