This isn’t really news, since the bike has been for sale for ages, bit since Russel Mitchell reduced the price for this scoot down to $25K it seems time to talk about it.
Russel created this bike to showcase Exile Chopper”s lineup of parts to make a standard Softail look like a custom build from a pro shop. Featuring Exile’s trademark minimalist approach to building, this scoot features a laundry list of custom features to dramtically change the look of the otherwise plain Jane Softail Standard, like Russell’s super-clean handlebar setup complete with a twist-clutch and hidden controls.
You’d pay a lot more for the bike and the parts separately, not counting the time and effort to bolt them on yourself. Consider this your last chance to own a genuine Exile Cycle dream bike without forking over $30K plus. Don’t this this one pass you by. Get the full specs and more shots of the sled at Exile Cycles.

I honestly don’t know why I haven’t posted products from Repop Mfg on this blog before, as I’m a huge fan of Jamie Repop’s work. The man is an incredibly talented leather smith and he casts some really impressive rings, key chains and other jewelry. Best of all, it’s all made in America. Check out the Ooija Wallet and all the other nifty swag at the Repop Mfg. site.
Word about “spoked” pulleys have been running wild for the last few years. Supposedly the use of spokes over forged aluminum compensates for higher toque at the rear wheel. In other words a spoked pulley won’t tear itself apart as quickly as their billet cousins. Considering I’m on my third pulley in two years, I’m definitely interested. Check out HDW for the specs and applications. If you’re into a custom brake setup, be sure to take a peek at their Perimeter Brake Systems. More at the HDW site.
