customized Harley-Davidson Softail Breakout

No. One of Two

One thing we can reveal at this point – there are two of this kind. You could call them fraternal twins. Here we show you the first of them, a really sharp machine based on a current Softail Breakout.

The concept is quite simple: Blacken what works, a nice line and high quality parts were desired. However, the implementation is not as simple as it may sound and involves much more than bolt-on parts. Not everything can simply be washed in black. It is only through the combination of measures that such high-quality custombikes are created.

For the coating of the frame, the entire motorcycle had to be disassembled into its thousand individual parts and put back together again. In the process, we replaced some parts and chose the black version in each case.

The handmade aluminum gastank, the mighty CNC-machined Spoke wheels in 21 and 23 inches, a single-sided swingarm and our adjustable suspension give the Breakout its new squat line.

From the headlamp cap to the many lids and covers to the side license plate holder, it’s the details that complete the modern look.

The devil is in these details: For example, you don’t just cover the fork on the Breakout – here we chose the particularly robust DLC coating.

“All in black” sounds simple, but involves a lot of thought and detail work. Next week we continue here, when we take on a Fat Boy with the same concept. Unlike the modern Breakout, this Softail model is more classic and yet – after our rebuild – they could be twins.

Stay tuned for next week’s video featuring the two twins, including Thundertalk, in which we explain the conversion of both models in detail.
