"My passion for bikes comes from an early recollection of my dad picking me and my brothers up from school with a few of his friends on custom bikes and everyone saying to me is that your dad? My love of customising come from my uncle’s custom chopper in which he made in the 80’s. I fell in love with the bike and how my uncle was able to use a stock bike and customise and personalise something to fit his frame and stature."
"I now own and am currently restoring this bike. I can always recall the day that I saw my first Harley-Davidson and I turned to my parents and said that one day I would love to work for Harley. I didn’t have much experience in the way of customising apart from the previous Battle of the Kings entry which was our first ever custom bike to come out of Reading Harley-Davidson and end up 4th in the competition."
The bike design was a collective decision by the whole team as we all have a passion for custom bikes at the Dealership, and we decided to go for an Exile influence using a ‘48 as a donor. We liked the idea of the short frame and fatter front end so we could show the world that no matter what size the rider may be, you can take a stock bike and customise it to fit, hence the 16 inch ape hanger bars.
We also decided to go for a hugger rear fender that’s fixed to the rear swing arm so it gives you that stripped down, tail dragging and aggressive look.
The one piece of the bike that is special to us all of us here at Reading Harley-Davidson is the ‘RG6’ timer cover. It may be one of the smallest items on the bike but it make us all proud of the dealership and how far we have come in the last 2 years.
