2004 Amen Savior Motorcycle Upon returning from World War II, soldiers seemed dissatisfied with the motorcycles that were being built by Harley-Davidson and Indian. The bikes they had rode in Europe were lighter, sleeker, and were much more fun to ride. These vets started to hang out with other ex-soldiers to relive some of the camaraderie they had felt in the service. These groups of buddies realized that their motorcycles needed changes that Harley was not providing. These new bikers (another new term at the time) started their chopping by removing or shortening (bobbing) the fenders on their bikes. This made the bikes look cool and uncluttered. They originally called the new chopped bikes Bobbers. The bikes kept evolving through the 60s and in the 70s and they started to call them Choppers. In 1969 the movie Easy Rider was released which brought the Chopper into the public eye. That movie set into motion the wave of cool Choppers and Chopper builders that we see today. People wanted a Chopper, and nobody was building them so they had to go build them themselves. For consignment, named Outer Limits, titled as a manufactured bike but 100% custom from the ground up. Starting with an Amen Savior frame, this year long build has had many talented hands involved in the completion and now before you and gracing our Hallowed Halls is this one of a kind California style radical long bike. With parts sourced from Mike Brown, Arlen Ness, Paul Yoffe, Matt Hotch, and Fat Cats to name a few, this multiple award winning, magazine featured bike with numerous upgrades runs and sounds like nothing else. Like a custom guitar putting out its own sound and look. For the motorcyclist that likes quality while being just a bit of a showoff, this has your name on it. Circle W Restorations in East Berlin, PA handled the Silver metallic paint, licked with touches of H.R. Gigers famous alien covers the fenders and tank of this long low machine, with over 155 hours put into the airbrushing alone. A color matching powder coated tube frame holds it all together and has been made so that the bike can even be lower. The swing arm suspension keeps things smooth in the back and the Harley Davidson front forks with just the right rake, 53 degrees with 11 over to be exact, add to the feminine curvature of the overall bike. A fairly unnoticed styling cue is the reversed and reworked front fender which requires a trained eye to note. Ample use of chrome and polished billet cover this bike and even encompass the Accutronix foot and PM hand controls which are mounted on Arlen Ness bars. A Barry Junkins black and silver leather seat provides a contoured place to park ones posterior and still look uber cool doing so. P&M, the builders, added 14 to the rear fender to and frenched in a RWD plate frame and brake light for high visibility. Holding this rolling steel piece of art to the road are Weld Recluse wheels with Avon Venom rubber, 90/90x21 in the front and 250/18 in the rear. A stage II 100ci Indian Power Plus V Twin just dripping with chrome fits perfectly within the custom frame and produces 101hp. This mighty mill is fed by a S&S Super E carburetor which resides under a Forcewinder air cleaner. Actuating the valves is a Crane Hi-Roller 314-2 camshaft and ignition is handled by AMM. A 5-speed Baker transmission provides enough different gear ratio to bruise or cruise. Providing the braking are PM disc brakes fore and aft. At 9 feet 8 inches long, this bike was designed to have no flop while turning and the bike tracks straight and true even when counter leaning. This one owner wild thang is just getting broken in. A flight of fancy, an ode to badass, a way to shake things up in the old neighborhood, how about a totally custom designed bike that reads like an encyclopedia of whos who in the motorcycle world. Just throw the chromed kickstand down and walk away and watch a crowd gather!
