To have won so many trophies and plaques that you can't remember the number, or where they all are, says a lot about the bike you've been showing for the last number of years. This machine has been adorned with chrome covers and caps and trinkets on almost every conceivable surface. Eye candy is what some would call it, others still would say it's rolling artwork. No matter what the opinion, there is no getting away from the fact that this is one of the most unique and recognizable motorcycles in the Greater Vancouver area. In the interest of brevity, let it simply be understood that this bike is the definition of "Bling - Bling".

It is apparent that the owner has opted to visually personalize his machine rather than compromise the mechanical integrity of the bike by introducing a host of different performance components. The drive line has remained virtually stock internally at the advice of the installer who equipped the bike with a complete Nitrous Oxide fogger system. As per the manufacturers advice, only the breathing components have been changed to make the system efficient. A mikuni 42 mm carburetor with a Kuryakyn "Hypercharger" intake has been used to feed the fuel mixture, and a set of 2 into 2 megaphone style pipes handle the exhaust. This bike is all show, and a frequent crowd pleaser at that, but has also got plenty of "Go" if the N.O.S. gets turned on.

As the bike is nearly thirteen years old at the time of this writing, some of the components used here are no longer available from the various manufacturers. For example the Performance Machine spun aluminum wheels, modeled after drag bike technology. These have been discontinued in favour of easier to produce forged wheels. That does not take anything away from the quality of these parts, because they were top of the line when they were installed, but if they do need to be replaced, unless they can be sourced out from independent suppliers, they will not be found. Time marches on and so does the after market parts industry. This bike remains a gleaming example of a very tricked out 1990's Softail Springer and is a testimony to the vast array of after market parts that are available.
