Troy Dugas from Breaux Bridge, Louisiana, is the owner of this sweet pearl-white ’96 H-D Sportster 1200. Like most everyone else, Troy just had to personalize his bike by adding a bit of chrome, and he got carried away. His bike features a new tank, an extra 9-degrees of rake, a fairing with radio and Bose speakers, cut fenders, drag bars, Hyper- charger, lowering kit, drag pipes, forward controls, and ghost flames. Every modification to this bike was done by Troy in less than six months at a cost of $2,800. Not bad for an A/C tech huh?
Sherman Johnson of Blair, Nebraska, sent us a few snaps of his bike that started out as a ’91 H-D Heritage Softail that was pretty much a plain-Jane motorcycle with not too much going on. Getting bored with the baseline of style and performance, Sherm customized the bike with a 100ci Ultima motor and an Ultima six-speed tranny. He upped the rolling stock with a set of 21- and 16-inch 80-twisted-spoke wheels and added a single-fire ignition, six-gallon Fat Bob tanks, 16-inch apes, a hydraulic clutch, a Mustang seat, and a set of hard bags. The custom paint was squirted by Rick Robinson, and the whole thing was assembled by Boones House of Strokers.
Chris Martin who resides in Salina, Kansas, emailed us some images of his ’10 H-D Fat Boy Low. The engine, frame, and paint are all factory, but Chris added Street Slammer handlebars, Arlen Ness mirrors, Kryakyn flush mount gas caps with LED fuel gauge, a Screamin’ Eagle heavy breather, a Vance & Hines Big Radius 2-into-2 exhaust, an H-D custom seat, a fender bib, black diamond grips and pegs, smoked lenses and LED taillight, a front signal relocation kit, wrinkle black primary and clutch covers, soft bags, a knife, and some brass knuckles. Give ’em hell, kid!
