You are looking at this genuine Big Wheel Bagger that are currently in the USA what the chopper was to the scene 40 years ago.
Go to Daytona Bike Week to confirm this as the current trend in the custom bike scene
Under the fantastic eye popping Candy Red over Silver base exterior is perhaps the most reliable and awesome platform a 2006 Yamaha Road Star XV1700 with just 16000 miles on it.
An absolute fortune has been spent on the conversion not least over $5000 on the front 26″ spoked rim and raked forks to accommodate it. The fiberglass bodywork additions didn’t come cheap either, nor the monster stereo unit and speakers which incedently overpowers the exhaust note with its volume and sheer clarity.
Make no mistake this bike could go to any show and grab the attention of any person just sitting without the big V Twin pumping out the best off beat lope through its Vance & Hines custom pipes. The motor can also be lit from above with red LED’s.
It is surprisingly easy to ride on UK roads with the suspension soaking up most of the surface imperfections and the ability to steer around the potholes is excellent due to the wide and low Burley Beach Bars. All the chrome work is in superb condition and complements the paintwork perfectly.
This bike is certainly not for the typical shy, retiring, traditional biker and is a Marmite bike, you either love it or hate it.
However, I have never ridden a bike (even my Victory Vision) that creates so much adulation from the general public with thumbs up, smiles and great comments which is fantastic in these gloomy days that the media portray.
You won’t find another in the World like this bike and its affordable and ridable plus capable of winning shows straight off the bat.
