Japan is notorious all over the world for the quality of the custom Harley Davidson motorcycles built on its soil. There again the Demo machine we discovered at Red Motorcycle demonstrated this fact.
Let’s start with the obvious, Visually, this Trike looks nothing like the factory version.
The first thing that you will notice is the replacement of the front fairing. The one on this trike comes from a Road King.
The Entire body as well as the frame received a beautiful black and red paintjob. The lines are fluid and the entire machine looks absolutely gorgeous.
When you get closer you start to notice the amount of details put on this three-wheeler. Every single aluminum part, from the engine case to the handle’s switches housings have been machined “diamond-cut” style.
Nothing was forgotten. The wheels, the fork tubes, even the winkers and foot controls were done! You can only try to imagine the amount of time necessary for this task alone!
The engine was of course entirely powder coated in the compulsory red color except for the crank case, the transmission case and cylinders that received a beautiful gold tint. Just behind the engine, the “Gold Rush” inscription is made of actual 24k gold sheets.
The stock 103 engine is no more. First it received an big upgrade with a Screamin Eagle 110 kit, a big throttle and One off ultra short (and ultra noisy) pipes that let this monster scream all its rage, especially after King Kustom Bike added their “Black Pepper” special map, thus unleashing the real potential of this engine setup. Since I did this shooting Red Motorcycle has become a Black Pepper dealer as well and will modify computers in the Aichi prefecture from now on.
Red Motorcycle as a real Screamin Eagle enthusiast got almost their entire catalog fitted on this Trike. The intake, the brake calipers, the bore up kit and throttle, even the computer.
With Custom motorcycle, if your pockets are deep enough, the only limit is your imagination. For this trike, FM Kun didn’t hesitate to throw the equivalent of a nice little house in order to build this fantastic demo machine. I would personally be scared of riding such a machine as the smaller scratch made on it would induce an heart attack!
I usually don’t really look at trikes as I definitely prefer motorcycles with only two wheels but this beast was to gorgeous not to fall for it.
Would you ride such a machine? Well that’s it for now folks but stay tuned as I have some more upcoming stuff straight from Japan!
