Chillicothe, Ohio's Ryan Coyer bought this '87 FXSTC from an old hillbilly and yanked most of the bolt-on parts off of it before his first ride. Knowing he wanted something other than a stock bike he took it to his buddy Tommy Collier at 4130 Customs. Together they built a two-wheeled hot rod with seaweed flames and wide whitewalls that conjures up images of '40 Ford sedans and '57 Chevys.
Gary Ruskamp from Dodge, Nebraska, used to ride a '49 Panhead back in the day, so when he got his hands on a Softail Standard in 2000 he immediately pepped up the motor with a 95ci Screamin' Eagle kit, 211 cams, and Samson pipes. He then gave it some retro chopper style with the aid of a set of 10-inch apes and 16-inch over forks.
Gary Bartlett from Mansfield, Ohio, slid us some pics of his '05 Dyna Wide Glide. He has spent countless hours and dollars to thoroughly pimp it out to suit his liking. Being that this is his first Harley, he took into careful consideration the Vance & Hines pipes, Headwinds headlight, LePera seat, and H-D Thunder Star wheels. After all the goodies were on the bike, Gary took it one step further with the inclusion of black ghost flames on the tank and fenders.
