Todd Jubert, owner of the Interior Shop in Phoenix, customizes cars and trucks for a living. Todd's dad (and coworker) is a lifelong rider so Todd grew up around Harleys but until recently never rode his own. Sitting around the shop one day Todd got an urge to visit Hacienda H-D to look at bikes; basically just to see what they cost, styles, and do a little tire kicking. When Todd was looking around he didn't like the touring bikes with hard bags and front fairing, so he was leaning towards a Road King Classic with windshield and leather saddlebags. One thing led to another and Todd filled out a credit app. At 10 a.m. the next morning Hacienda called Todd and told him to pick up his bike.
Todd was stoked but thought, "how the heck am I going to get it home since I have never ridden a bike?" His father came to the rescue and got to ride the bike before Todd. It sat at his folks' house until Todd took the Motorcycle safety class. He wanted to get the basics before taking it on the road.
After getting his license Todd had Hacienda add the usual chrome doodads but also a respectable 103 ci H-D kit for more oomph. After six months of riding, the strong Arizona sun was warping the saddlebag lids, so Todd decided to go with hard bags. Todd had trouble matching the stock Dark and Light Green Envy paint scheme, but got it close. Todd also upholstered the inside of the bags to cut down on the rattles when things were in the bags, installed his iPod into the side of the bag, and added a gun holder. For the next couple of months Todd rode the bike, only making a couple of exhaust and air cleaner changes in the process. He finally settled on Thundeheaders for the grunt and bark he was looking for.
Todd is 6 feet 6 inches tall and the ergonomics needed a little help. He had C&C Seats make up a seat that put him two inches farther back. He used Ness extended floorboard mounts and Softbrake extended pedal and shifter to give him even more legroom behind the bars. After a 400-mile ride to Vegas, Todd hooked up with Dragonfly at LV Bikefest. He wanted more comfort and a radio, so Kevin hooked Todd up with a fairing fit with a loud receiver and speakers to handle the power. Todd rode the bike back home with the unpainted fairing.
Todd tried to match the paint again but decided he didn't need five different shades of green on the bike. He called AJ's Customs in Tempe, AZ, brought his parts down and was just going to have them match all the parts together. After finding out the best way to go was to repaint the whole bike, Todd decided to just go custom, with gunmetal grey and heavy metallic pagan gold flames pinstriped in red.
To this day Todd can't seem to leave the bike alone. He took it down to Paul Yaffe Originals where they installed a stabilizing system, Holy Link shift lever, grips with bullet ends, chrome holy levers, cut off the rear fender support crossover, and installed bullet end caps to finish it off. Todd also installed the Arnott rear Air ride system with hand lever controls to get the bike to where he really likes it and rides it everyday. If you were wondering, the license plate PKRFC stands for Poker Face, not Pecker Face as some of his friends tease. We're just glad he put so much work into turning his RK Classic into an Electra Glide. Nice work!
