Those who know about our shop will be aware that we’re quite partial to some Old School Cool and with this build we decided to combine that with the modern technology, performance and handling of the Milwaukee Eight Softail range.
We started off with what seemed to us the obvious choice for an old school build in the stripped-down, souped-up, bobber with a post WWII era look that is the 2019 Softail Slim and went with the Black Denim paint option because who doesn’t love a Black Denim bobber right?!
So now that we’d settled on our concept and the bike we were going to use it was time to put it all down on paper.
The first thing that went on the list were the Vance & Hines Shortshots that sound as tough as they look which we paired with an S&S Mini Teardrop High Flow Air Cleaner, a modern take on THE classic air cleaner.
To get it running as it should after fitting a high flow intake and exhaust we tuned the bike with a DynoJet PowerVision Fuel Management System.
Next to go on were the Genuine Harley-Davidson 12” Fat Ape Hangers which are quickly becoming our go-to when it comes to apes thanks to their comfortable and traditional shaped bend. While we were at it we added a pair of the Harley-Davidson Get-A-Grip hand grips. (Our favourites!)
We all know that the best way to set an old school bobber off is to fit it with a set of White Wall tyres so a set of Metzeler ME888 Marathon Ultra White Walls were ordered to replace the factory fitted Dunlop D401’s.
To finish things off we tidied a few things up with the first being the stock plastic license plate bracket, straight away the Bikecraft Fender Eliminator was chosen for the job.
We then decided a Black Denim derby cover would break up the primary side of the bike a bit better than the polished one fitted and some Harley-Davidson Gloss Black Axle Covers would tidy up the exposed axle on the back and matched the front up.
Once we’d settled on what we wanted to do our factory trained technicians got to work on making the vision a reality.
This bike turned out every bit as tough as we were expecting and someone is going to be making us all jealous when they ride out the door on this thing.
