1998 Honda Valkyrie F6C Custom Drag/Muscle Cruiser – SN461
UK Registration: R286 KDS
If you have been following us on social media over the last 2-3 years you will know how much we love a custom Valkyrie project.
This is our 6th custom Valkyrie, the other 5 we went down the bobber route whilst this one in particular is more of a drag/muscle cruiser and certainly has a big street presence to go with it.
A lot of hours have been put into this bike in order to create a unique but balanced style that flows throughout.
To start with the wheels, fork legs, brake/clutch reservoirs and levers have been finished in gloss black.
Both fenders front & rear have been designed and fabricated from scratch in order to give a custom look but at the same time we have created a design in order to incorporate the factory paint work from the tank.
The seat is again fully custom and was created to give comfort whilst at the same time flowing in nicely with the direction and style of the rear fender.
We have shortened the exhausts considerably removing the silencers and adding custom baffles unleashing the savage but glorious sound produced from the flat 6 engine, all whilst using the factory tips to do so.
The lowered stance has been made possible by using Hagan shocks that have been measured precisely to fit and the good news is they’re progressive but not too hard.
A set of ‘Z’ style 25mm drag bars have been fitted along with custom grips, HEL brake lines and Venhill throttle cables.
On top of all this the carbs have been rebuilt/balanced and the manifold O rings have been replaced.
Simply put this bike is a one of custom that is ready to turn heads and win shows wherever it goes.
