One thing we can usually count on is how important the look of your bike is to you. If you didn't build your bike from the ground up, you more than likely picked up a stock bike. If so, it may look like every other bike out there made by the same company, from Harley-Davidson to Big Dog. If you're not interested in messing with the paint job, what else can you do to change up your bike's look? What about wheels? A new set of wheels is one thing that can change the look of a bike without too much work and downtime. These days, almost every wheel company has custom and OEM replacement equipment. Landmark is one of these companies. It has a full line of spoke wheels to handle any custom job and all factory replacements.
We wanted to take on a bike makeover, starting with a new set of spoke wheels to change its look. We'll then work our way to the sheetmetal, and eventually to the paint. The bike here was at one time a stock '98 Fat Boy, but now it's just a sort of mutant bike with style in every direction. To get started, we called Landmark Motorcycle Accessories in Oceanside, CA, to get a catalog of the company's wheels. What we got was a lot more. Landmark has a full line of accessories, from mirrors, grips, and pegs to shift linkages and gas caps. The company also has a line of rotors and pulleys to go along with its spoke wheels. We gave the people at Landmark a call and let them know what we were doing with this bike. They told us to head on down so we could take a few photos as the wheels were getting assembled.
