It doesn’t take much convincing to get me to the mountains in western North Carolina. This year, after a few years’ hiatus, the Cherokee Indian Nation in Cherokee, North Carolina, is back in the rally business and they went all out to make it one to remember.

   Sometimes I can’t believe how stupid I can be especially when it comes to overlooking an awesome custom build that happens to be in the so-called basement of our photo galleries. Getting lost amid all the bikes we’ve previously featured is easy as there are literally thousands of photos floating around in our Internet hosted gallery of custom builds. Sometimes all I see in a jpg is a bit of a handlebar or a seat or something that just doesn’t immediately grab my eyeballs and that was the case here. Man-o-man am I glad I opened up this set of photos out of sheer curiosity I had been constantly bypassing.

So we’ve caught your attention, huh? I thought so. Here’s a custom big wheel bagger you couldn’t miss if you tried and, for once, it has nothing to do with wheel size. There it was sitting seaside at last year’s Boardwalk Show in Daytona Beach when Barnett’s Magazine Online’s photographer extraordinaire captured it in digital form when it wasn’t looking. Everyone who came anywhere near it was, though, as this is one build that seems to have a lot to say.

   Holy Moly (or another possibly more appropriate word that is considered not cool in print) is all I could think of after taking a close look at this build. To clear the air, it’s not a Harley-Davidson and it’s not a bike meant for street riding even though the mystery builder might say otherwise. It’s strictly a show piece and a pretty wild one at that.

There’s no gray area when it comes to radical custom baggers. It seems Harley-Davidson freaks either love them or absolutely hate them with every molecule of their being. The haters dislike the changes made for eye-grabbing looks that change up the usefulness of a Motor Company stocker as far as they see it. Can’t be ridden is the first one of the thoughts of the collective of commenters that always rises to the top of any discussion. Can’t go around corners without scraping is another and being too low to use on the street. There’s a million more, but since you already know what side you’re on, pro or con, you already know what the complaints are.

    If it wasn’t for the splash of red fencing behind this grab-me-by-my-heartstrings Panhead bobber, it could be a long lost shot in black and white from the days when film ruled the photo world and the only computers were in a huge defense building. We’ve had a strong run of Harley-Davidson Panhead customs recently and by the looks of what Jack Cofano shot at the recent Smoke Out 18, you’d think that there might be more of them today than when they were first built. I dig old B&W photos of old Harleys and this build and the setting almost make it appear that somebody figured out how to roll back time.

Man, those could be fighting words. If somebody asked you what you thought of their new build and you said, “That’s simple and clean.” They’d probably be a bit insulted. But, that’s about the highest compliment I can give any build that strives after the look that most builders can’t or won’t do. Although it may seem like a non-committal pass-off, it’s far from it. This Triumph build you’re looking at is simple and clean in a lovely traditional way and there’s nothing ever wrong with traditional when it comes to custom motorcycles.

     Ever been to a rave? Me neither. But in case you don’t know exactly what a rave is, it involves a lot of dance music played extremely loudly in a psychedelic atmosphere with casual sex and drugs thrown in. Yeah, I know what you’re thinking, that’s not good, but if you were 19 or 20 again you might think otherwise. It’s a sensory overload of anything and everything extreme in life and certain people revel in it. You know, that rave thing sounds like the mantra that radical custom bagger builders and owners adhere too just with Harley-Davidsons featuring extreme sound and without the dancing and drugs. Casual sex could still be in play.

    Bling’s Cycles’ head honcho, Bill Dodge, has got a thing about mixing up a concoction of dirt bikes and V-twin customs that goes back to the first feature bike, Asbury Dirt, we did on him in the print edition of Barnett’s Magazine about oh, ten or twenty years ago (or maybe it just seems that way). Back then, it seemed quite shocking for a big V-twin custom to have knobby tires on it when everything else was just pushing the boundaries of how wide a rear tire could or should go.
