Hooked on Phoenix Ride

Posted by on Jan 29, 2014 in Bikes, Events, Product | Comments Off on Hooked on Phoenix Ride

Rocky Mountain ATV/MC ran a contest this year and chose some lucky contest winners to ride with the Rocky Mountain guys all the way to Phoenix to enjoy the Supercross races! The ride starts from Mesquite, NV and goes through the desert to Phoenix where they enjoyed Supercross, and then rode back to Mesquite, NV all over a period of five days. Looked like an epic ride with an awesome group! A few of the Rocky Mountain bikes were equipped with a 465 Series monoshock with RAP and were put to the test! Here are some of our favorite pictures from the ride.

MotoUSA Sportster 48 Street Tracker

Posted by on Jan 28, 2014 in Bikes, Product | Comments Off on MotoUSA Sportster 48 Street Tracker

Roland Sands Design built this 2010 Sportster 48 for MotoUSA President Don Becklin and used it as an experimental platform for their new Machine Ops Finish. The Street Tracker was outfitted with a slew of new RSD parts like rear-sets, clarity derby cover and vintage tank to name few. When it came time to sort the suspension RSD felt it was only natural that this beauty was equipped with our 970 Series Shocks and Progressive Rate Fork Springs. Great job Roland, the bike came out great!

The Mechadol by Crabmotors

Posted by on Jan 20, 2014 in Bikes | Comments Off on The Mechadol by Crabmotors

Crabmotors does some excellent work! Really loving their Sportster builds from last year. Especially the Mechadol a 1989 Sportster with Progressive Suspension 412 Series Shocks. This bike looks like a lot of fun on-road and off (mostly off).

This bike reminded me I have a real soft spot for Sportsters and Buells given an adventure bike make-over.
