Barnett’s Classified Galleries
Parking Lot Bike of the week
Well it’s finally become the season to be jolly and I’m not referring to Christmas. Yes, mi amigos, it’s football season and we’re right in the middle of it. The most important aspect of it is that my team is winning like hell and, like I said, that’s all that matters. Yeah, my boy Tom had to miss the first four games, but he’s on a roll hopefully straight to the Super Bowl LI in Houston February fifth. There are some other kinda good quarterbacks strewn around the league and I’m told by others who care that Cam Newton of the Carolina Panthers is one of them. Even though I’m not familiar with his accomplishments, the name rings a bell.
Usually taking a walk on the wild side as far as custom baggers go involves some new crazy bodywork twist or an audio system that would drown out an F-22 Raptor on takeoff or it could be a completely mind blowing paintjob. All honorable things that a lot of honorable big wheel bagger fans can’t get enough. For Zach Johnson and Travis Hathcock of Kendall Johnson Customs in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, that’s not the way they roll. Matter of fact, they love to roll so much they can’t seem to stop making incredibly high horsepower, yet reliable hyper baggers for their walk on the wild side. And, yes, the article title is correct ─ 321 horsepower at the rear wheel.
If you want to get the undivided attention of Barnett Harley-Davidson’s GM, Mark Barnett, all you have to do is say two words ─ Kendall Johnson. Mark Barnett is a busy, busy guy with too much on his mind, but say those two words and he’s eagerly waiting to hear anything and everything that follows. Mark, like the rest of the Barnett family, is a horsepower junkie and nothing says 45-degree air-cooled V-twin horsepower better than Kendall Johnson Customs in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. No matter what they build, it’s got more dyno-proven power than anything else like it. If you don’t believe me, just ask Mark. He’ll drop everything and straighten you out.
That questionable title question may seem silly or even a bit stupid to you as it looks like a Harley, so it must be a Harley, right? But is it a Harley? What was it before it got a makeover of makeovers? Is it a customized Road Glide? Oh that’s a lot of questions and the best part is that I don’t really even have the answers, but I do have questions. And, like you, probably only guesses. Educated (so to speak) guesses, but guesses nonetheless.
