Brent and Derek Law are the CycleBoyz of Manitoba, Canada and this is one of the show stoppers that gets built during the long winters our northern neighbors endure.  This ultra trick custom started out with a basic 280 Softail frame which was extensively re-worked in house. With its modest 38 degree rake and 5 extra in the trees, the emphasis was placed on making it both good looking and rideable.  Mean Street 56mm inverted Stilleto forks were fitted and a pair of awesome Pro One Sinister wheels used with the inner blades painted to match the bike.

 

Power to the 280 rear tire is provided by a 124” TP show polished monster mated to a Road Max six speed right side drive transmission.  An Arlen Ness caliper handles the stopping duties up front, while an HHI set up does the honors in the rear.  The fenders and framework were made in house and MLB Customs and CycleBoyz together fabricated the exotic gas tank that gives the bike its unique look.  PM hand controls and Accutronix foot controls finished off the bike.

Located only a half hour north of the U.S. border, Brent and Derek build $60K customs, $20K bobbers and variety of other styles in between.  This particular bike is sold but they have a drop frame custom for sale now.  You can visit them on the web at www.cycleboyz.com or give them a call at 204-726-4641.  They also hit the Donnie Smith show and a couple of the Easyriders shows if you want to meet them in person.
