When Custom Chrome approached Kirk and James about building a bike they jumped at the opportunity. The only stipulation to the project was that the bike could only be built using products offered in the Custom Chrome catalog; all other parts had to be hand fabricated by Kirk and James. The result is an awesome bike with a 1940’s
“Hill Climber” vibe that also incorporates 1920’s “Board Tracker” and 1960’s “Drag Racer” influences. Kirk and James have created a perfect example of what can be done by anybody with a vision, creativity, and the Custom Chrome catalog proving that you too could create your own truly one of a kind motorcycle.
