The most remarkable projects generally come from small shops and are often made by a single person. This particular project is no exception as Ludovic Rumo, owner and boss of King Kustom Bike Switzerland, built this entire bike single handed for one of his most faithful customers, who also happens to be one of his best buddies.
This incredible piece of art on wheels was based off a 2008 Softail Rocker C.
Beautiful one-off 100-spoke wheels (21 inch at the front and 18 inch at the rear) were installed with, of course, the same black powder coating and 24k gold plating finish as you can see on the engine and other elements of the motorcycle.
Pneumatic suspension replaced the stock shock absorbers allowing the rider to adjust the height to his taste, or to slam the bike to the ground for the best visual effect possible at the push of a button.
The Screamin’ Eagle 120R Engine installed has a displacement of about 2,000cc (120ci) and provides tonnes of pure American torque, proving that “The Hoe” is not only about the looks but also about performance.
To let this engine express its voice, a parallel BSL exhaust was chosen.
Every screw and bolt has been gold plated to match the gold /black colour scheme.
Extra stopping power was necessary at this point, thus Performance Machine calipers associated with Skull by Galfer rotors replace the originals.
