„Machst mit ‘nem Doppelpass jeden Gegner nass…“

“You can make any opponent wet with a double pass…”

Our Slim’s performance is just as raucous. No shish-kebab, no heckling. The naked truth, as it usually is, in the miners’ and steelworkers’ town.

Master Kruse applied the raw look of the Flying Fury with skillful sweep from his spray gun and refined it with a few layers of clear coat. Have you seen the tank emblem? Ingo Kruse added wings to the stylized Bar&Shield logo, as if it couldn’t hold a candle to it.

But the Slim is a real piece of work. Especially after we gave it the power air filter and the Jekill with short header system in the matching vintage design, which gives the already nippy 107 Milwaukee Eight engine even more legs and also leaves no questions unanswered belonging the acoustic…

You drink some Fiege Beer, eat a Dönninghaus sausage and after the game you go downtown to the famous Bermuda Triangle. On foot, of course. In the past, you also met the odd player here.

Meanwhile, our soccer player pro has retreated to the northern edge of the Ruhr region and will spend his time in the future in the saddle of our Flying Fury.

Our model wears a part of our current collection. All the Harley stuff, Thunderbike clothes and of course the bike parts you can get around the clock in our Onlineshop
