Other changes were more in line with what's hot in custom baggerdom. Trick wheels never go out of style, and the Ultra got a healthy dose of sexy from its new 21-inch skinny Pickard front roller and the matched 18-incher aft along with PM calipers. Out went the old floorboards, in came a new set of Pro-One Zombie footrests. The tail and turn lights were exchanged for an evil-looking tombstone setup of the LED persuasion.
But did Al get a better stereo? Yeah, you could say that. Not just a new Kenwood sound system but also a few little things like, say, tweeters in the fairing and speaker lowers. Nowadays, Al's biggest problem is hearing compliments on his bitchin' Ultra over his music. "Needless to say I am very pleased with the bike," he told us. "The work is flawless. JT has a genuine concern for the customer and pays great attention to detail. Now, we get lots of attention while riding. If you had told me while I was purchasing the Ultra Classic that I would be riding out of K-otic Kustoms on this bike, I would have thought you were crazy."
Al didn't know JT or his wife, Buffy, prior to wandering in for a 20k service. The shop has now become his second home. Al concluded, "The relaxed environment, and great attitude of the staff and customers, makes for a great place to hang out. Everyone that walks through the door is greeted with the same enthusiasm and interest that I received on my first visit. I have now had the pleasure of watching several bikes from start to finish and can see the hard work and passion that JT puts into every project, no matter how big or small."
