customized Thunderbike Harley-Davidson Low Rider S

Even a motorbike can experience something

Not every bike has that to offer: A story before the customer has it under their bum. The Low Rider S is enough of a story on its own, as it propels its rider forward with its 117cc engine. So we’re allowed to add a bit of verve to its exterior.

We have given it our new TB-S covers. They set the first accents on the clutch, ignition and airbox. Plus the step-up seat, which is not only in vogue for club style, but is also recommended for a bike that unleashes elemental forces when accelerating. Slipping off is impossible in this saddle, and it can even be comfortable on long distances. The Torque handlebars and the Clubstyle riser kit harmonise with this. Small additions, such as the Inside licence plate holder and multifunctional Stripe LED turn signals, round off the overall impression.

The step-up seat ensures a secure hold, even with 117 cubic inches and 105 hp.

Torque handlebars and Clubstyle riser kit: everything is under control with these!

Now this Low Rider S was white when delivered. This can be a stylistic device when the most evil of all animals wears the most innocent colour – like Moby Dick or Jaws. But it can also be boring. We therefore asked Chiko to add extra accents so that the eye of the beholder can rest on the bike for longer.

Chiko once again did a perfect job with his legendary pinstriping, and that too during a live performance at our “Rumble & Thunder” last August. The name says it all, at the Rumble & Thunder it can rumble. Not only American Big Twins drive up, but also American Cars. Good vibrations for some … But Chiko’s hands remained calm, he drew his lines cleanly.

Maiden trip in Faak

We took the “Hot Flames”, christened in this roaring bath of fire, out on the roads in an exclusive maiden voyage. Not on just any roads, but on the winding lines of the serpentines of Carinthia like a pinstriping. Around the European Bike Week in Faak am See, the Hot Flames experienced its baptism. She passed it.

We won’t tell you who had to clean the mosquitoes off the paint after the ride outs in the most glorious late summer weather. We don’t sell dirty bikes. But the customer buys a story with the bike even before his first ride out.
