Go on ridin’ like a boss!
That’s exactly what our two customers from Belgium wanted. There’s just one catch: Since the beginning of 2021, our small neighbor to the west of Germany has also had a kind of TÜV. Gone are the days when you could build and ride whatever you wanted in Belgium. Our Chicanos based on a current Softail Heritage 114 are completely roadlegal and nothing stands in the way of a registration (of course also in Germany). This is important because you can not only win shows with our Chicanos, but also ride mega good.
Similar, but not the same!
The show is of course part of the Chicano Style. That’s why, in addition to a lot of black coatings, the spray guns from Chiko’ Pinstriping (flame design) and Kruse Design (classic design) were used here. Through their gifted hands, the two bikes have given a character of their own.
This also applies to the two saddles, which were painstakingly handcrafted at Jimi Spirit Leather to match the paint. In our Thunder Talk (see video above), Jimi tells us something about the creation of his custom-made saddles for these two Chicanos.

Just a Showbike?
Sometimes we are asked what riding a Chicano is like. Yes, it’s true, the exhaust and running boards are closer to the asphalt than on many other custom bikes. That’s part of the lowrider style. Still, our Chicanos are not just show bikes. Check out the pictures and especially the video of these two bikes. The 114cc Milwaukee-Eight engine from the current Softail series propels powerfully and the chassis is as safe as dignified thanks to our components.
