Hot Rod Ride

I have a custom 1992 FXR that I built from the ground-up and finished last year. It has a lot of unique characteristics, such as an extended swingarm, chain conversion, completely custom stroker engine, etc. It’s a daily rider that also runs 10-second times in the quarter mile. At 23 years old, it is my pride and joy. I think of my little hot rod FXR as a great accomplishment.

Booze Bad Bike

The bike was built from a basket case in 2008 and has only 420 miles. Everything is either new or rebuilt and it rides and runs like a dream. The bike is a 1992 Heritage Softail with 38-degree rake, 2-inch out, chrome Ultra Glide frontend, custom-made swingarm, one-off mag wheels (21-inch front and a 180 rear with Avon Venoms), Baker six-speed, polished Delkron bottom end, Andrews cam, Super “G” carb, street sweepers, custom flaked flamed paint by my friend, Dakota Digital tachometer and speedometer, Arlen Ness oil gauge, pegs and mirrors, stretched forward controls, Performance Machine four-piston brakes front and rear, and Progressive suspension shocks.

Raco’s Old New School

My bike is a 2012 Sportster 48 1200. I installed a D&D Bobcat exhaust and Küryakyn air cleaner. I spent several weeks tuning the bike with a Powervision tuner. I recently swapped the peanut tank with a 2008 Sportster tank that I custom pained myself using House of Kolor paints. I also installed bars from a Nightster to give a few more inches of pullback over stock.
