Sempri Fi Street Glide
My bike is an ’07 FLHX that I picked up stock about a year ago after I got home from the Marines. In a years time my friends and I at Renegade Motorcycles in Weatherford, Texas, have added the 16-inch BNB ape hangers with a gloss black inner fairing to match, a 21-inch Southern Motorcycle Works front wheel converted to a single lefthand brake caliper and wrapped in a Avon Venom tire, custom one-off brake and clutch levers, Factory Fairing US stretched 4 inches over ABS bags with Loud Lids saddlebag speaker lids with two 6.5 Kicker in the fairing and two 6.5 kicker in the saddlebags powered by a Rockford Fosgate amp with Monster wiring. The Factory Fairing stretched rear fender has an all-in-one Russ Wernimont taillight, Sinister floorboards with edge-cut accents. The motor has a tuner and mild cam and some deep sounding Rineharts to cap it off. The frontend, has extended headlight bezel, and several others parts were powdercoated black.
My wife Mimi and I put our heads together and came up with this creation. We call it the “Nitemare” and it is a ’91 H-D Softail custom. It has a bandana scalloped pattern paint job, wrinkle coated motor and lower front legs, 16-inch ape hangers, 5-gallon tanks, FLH front fender with a 21-inch Performance Machine front wheel that I vinyl coated with a little bit of red, Heritage style rear fender with a solid 18-inch chrome Performance Machine rear wheel. The vinyl striping on the tanks and fenders were done by my friend Summer with Top Crown Designs. I have Big Growl 2-inch Long Shot exhaust, and it’s fished off with my spikes on the front and rear fenders.
Blue Built Chopper
My bike is a 2012 homemade custom chopper, with a 127-inch Ultima motor, six-speed Ultima transmission, Redneck Engineering Curves frame with American Suspension D-66 springer front end. I have RC Components 21×3-1/2 front with an 18×10 rear wheel using a Cobra 300/35VR18 tire. I added a custom made ostrich seat made by Preevo Leather Works in Omaha, Nebraska. The paint is by Rick Robinson at Ricks Custom Paint in Blair, Nebraska. It has a custom made tank, rear fender oil tank combination and handlebars. I’d like to give a special thanks to Jerry Boone at Boones House of Strokers in Blair, Nebraska.
