If I was keeping a check list of what made a custom bike cool and hip just a few short years ago, this bike would have checked all the right boxes. Long-check. Low-check. Radical-check. Not a custom bagger – check. Big-inch show-polished engine-check. LOUD pipes – check. Unbelievable sheetmetal work-check. Billet and then some more billet – check. Super-wide rear tire-check. 360 Brakes – check. Air ride suspension – check. Exotic hide seat – check. Chrome – check. More chrome – check. Intricate wild color paint job – check. Well that should be just about enough slightly-older style points to make this officially Old School to a new generation of riders that are nowhere near even getting their license yet. Hell, maybe they don’t even know they like motorcycles yet.
Like I said, there will be a time when everything old is new again. You thought you were just checking out a radical custom like they used to build, but you were really looking into the future to see the past which is actually the present or is it? Who knows? Not me, I’m not even sure I know what I’m talking about. All that matters is that Kevin loves his unbelievably wild, long and low custom and doesn’t give a damn what anybody else likes or doesn’t like. It’s really simple, he built what he liked and, frankly, maybe that’s all a guy should do. Yeah, that’s the ticket.
