Hot Production Bikes

**Rucker Performance Motorcycle


Rucker Performance Motorcycle Company was founded in 2003 by Bill Rucker with the mission to be the leader in high-performance custom vehicles, by focusing on quality, technological innovation, and customer service. Rucker Performance offers a comprehensive line of four production motorcycles. One of them-the Predator-has almost twice the horsepower of a stock Harley-Davidson motorcycle.

The Predator has a custom fabricated tank and a handmade sheetmetal integrated body, Accutronix tribal triple-trees, custom zoomie headers, and a unique drop-seat design. This adrenaline machine has a 4.5-inch ground clearance, 49 degrees of rake, a 19-inch seat height, custom handlebars, and Ness controls. This motorcycle comes with the monster torque, fit, and finish of a one-off custom bike with exceptional drag race-inspired performance.

The Predator featured here has a dragon, samurai, and Kabuki warrior paint scheme surrounded by tattoo-style Japanese waves with toxic liquid silver, candy apple red, and black cherry candy paint. Additional design features include soft-style suspension, a high-performance V-Twin 124 cubic-inch show-polished engine, clean, sharp lines, six-speed transmission, stretched tank, and fat tires.
