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.
Jesse James and crew are back in business with a new, albeit limited line of parts and accessories. As usual, WCC’s shop is clothing heavy and light on parts, but the real news is the introduction of the long awaited CFL 3 Frame. 3″ up and 38 degrees out. Made entirely out of 316 Stainless Steel, with .200″ wall in the Back Bone & Single Down Tube.
Comes complete with an engraved aluminum oil tank, hidden fork stop in the neck, a 1″ rear axle and 3D machined gusset and motor mount. Check out all the details at the West Coast Choppers site. By the way, those much sought after hand-crafted key chain fobs are still available for purchase there.
This is one of those brilliant products that makes you wonder why someone hasn’t produced one sooner. It’s a simple, sturdy mount for your smartphone that places it’s screen in just the perfect spot for visibility. Finally, I can use the GPS on my phone while I’m riding. Can’t wait for mine to get here. Check this little gem out at The Cell Buckle site.
And now for an innovation in helmet technology that has been needed since helmets were invented: a built-in rear view mirror that does not obstruct forward vision and provides a clear, uninterrupted view the road behind you.
New from Reevu, the MSX1 motorcycle helmet. Fully vented, DOT certified and track tested, this little gem may just turn the helmet industry upside down.
These helmets are available now and quite competitively priced considering their substantial safety upgrades. Check out the stats and pricing at the Reevu site. Also check out the Web Bike World’s video review of the MSX1 and this clip from Discovery Science Discurso.
I’m a huge fan of Sportsters, especially ones stripped down to bare essentials ala Speed Merchant and Storz. We’re seeing this trend all around, even Chopper Dave just tweeted his need for an XR Style Sporty fender. Since Café Racers are becoming a burgeoning fad in the Sportster community, Burly’s new Café Tail Sections should be a huge hit.
No more fender, ugly stock turn signals and license plate frames to clutter things up. Just a clean, minimalist look to completely change up the appearance of any 1986-03 Sporty.
Burly is currently offering these sections in a partially covered model with paint-able black gel coat and a fully covered option. Want more? Both options include super-comfortable gel inserts in the seats. Get a jaw dropping custom look without all the cutting and fabricating. Thank you, Burly.
Not a chopper. Not an American bike. I don’t care.
Found this beauty for sale in the Chop Cult Classifieds. Somebody is going to grab this, so act fast if you want to use it on your build.
The seller states: “Cowl light off I believe an Overland car from the teens. Its a one of a kind light and have never seen another. Brass ring and window rim. Window and face are real glass. Back side is cast iron thats been gun blued. Mounts to a 1/2 peice of stock with a tension screw. Both will be included in sale.”
This is an absolutely gorgeous taillight and I love that fact that the current owner has fitted it with a extra-bright LED insert, so its ready to go without any extra requirements. Visit Rebel Class Cycles’ Facebook page for all the info.
