>> ASSEMBLING THE BIKE >> COMPLETE BIKE KIT


Our Complete Bike Kit is basically a discount program aimed at those looking to purchase all the components for their project in one place.


Spend over $20,000 on parts, get 10% discount - it’s that simple. HOW IT WORKS:


The program is most suited to those that want to build a bike just the way we build it, but the discount can be applied to any large order. Most customers opt to have us perform all the additional fabrication necessary for their project. Think of it as if we were building your bike, but at the point we would send the project to the paint shop we box it up and send it all to you. You paint it, you bolt it together, you save a bunch of cash! You get it quicker and you get it your way. We have worked for very many years to refine our parts and develop our bike build formula. You will experience a far easier build than if you purchased a random selection of parts. Even if this is your first build, it will be so much more straight-forward than any other ground-up project, with no money wasted on incompatible parts! Please don’t think that we are simply


offering a limited range of bike-in-a- box models. This program allows us to prepare YOUR custom bike to your specifications – just as if we were


building you a finished motorcycle. The only difference is that you handle the paint and assembly instead of us. Choose the bike on our website that


most nearly represents your view of the bike you’d like to build (or have built for you by your local shop) and use that parts list as a starting point. Figure out what, if anything, you’d like to change. Feel free to call us for advice on parts or style changes. We should be able to give you a pretty accurate estimate of your Complete Bike Kit price right over the phone. Once you have made all your decisions and are ready to place your order we will work up a very detailed invoice listing exactly what parts will be supplied and what fabrication will be performed. Your parts list prices will be totaled and 10% discount applied if it exceeds $20,000. The labor costs will be added along with shipping cost, resulting in the final total price of your Complete Bike Kit. We take a 50% deposit when the order is placed, with the balance due once the Complete Bike Kit is ready to ship. This program works particularly well when the customer opts to have us supply every last part (right down to the


last nut and bolt) and perform all the fabrication work necessary to prepare the project to the point where it is ready to go to the paint shop. Of course, you can choose to supply any of the parts or perform any of the fabrication work yourself if you prefer. Our Complete Bike Kits are incredibly easy to assemble as we typically supply each and every part with all the appropriate hardware. It is rather obvious what bolts where and before you know it you have your dream bike sitting right there in your garage. On the following pages we have included a basic description of how we assemble a bike to help you understand the scope of the job. Please note that these ‘instructions’ will make much more sense once you have your parts in front of you. We have shown up on Saturday morning to a bike show with one of our Complete Bike Kits, and by Sunday afternoon we have the assembled bike up on stage running. Of course, your final assembly and wiring will take more than a couple of days – but not too much more!


>> ASSEMBLING THE BIKE


This section of the book will talk you through the assembly of one of our bikes. Please use this in conjunction with any instruction literature from the manufacturer of individual components. The following pages assume that we have supplied all your parts and performed all the required fabrication for you. This section simply explains the order and the way we tackle each step; it does not mean that it is the only, or even the best, way to do it.


We recommend using red loctite on almost all fasteners, with blue loctite in cases where a smaller bolt is threading in to aluminum.

Please remember that this will all sound very complicated until you have the appropriate part in your hand and can ‘see what we’re talking about’. Don’t be put off.


Slide your motor into the frame. It should be installed from the right side. We suggest wrapping your frame with rags or tape to protect freshly painted surfaces. Install the lower motor mounting hardware and start the nuts on the threads, but do not tighten. If you are building a Softail, then this would be the time to install the swing-arm in the frame. Mount the transmission plate to the


transmission. It will only fit in one location. PLEASE NOTE that we do not manufacture our components with oversize holes because that increases the chances of loose hardware and movement in the alignment of the drive train. Once you are sure that
