As the bike was getting reassembled other details were put into place like the frontend. Devin replaced the lower legs with a set of Arlen Ness smooth black single sided brake legs and added a 4-piston Brembo brake caliper. Now I know you are thinking “why is it red”? Well Todd wanted it to look like a Porsche wheel, all black and then a red caliper to offset the flow. Then to really mess with Devin after the wheels were back at the shop and just about to go back on the bike Todd called and asked to have a red pinstripe added to the wheel’s lip.
The motor, transmission, and primary were rebuilt and put back into the frame and from there the bike started to move fast putting the sheetmetal and fairing back on the bike. However, the inner fairing had to get painted so the audio was upgraded at that time. The H-D head unit stayed in place but the speakers were swapped out for a set of Hawg Wired ZX Series 6.5-inch speakers along with a PSC1502 150 watt amp for an in your face sound. The final touches were things like an Exotic SX velocity stack, Arlen Ness saddlebag latches, and a new seat from Saddlemen.
Devin said this was a lot more work then he had ever thought it would have been but once he got started on the challenge to do this he was thinking how easy it would be to get carried away with black paint but really loved the look of the bike once it was done. It also gave a lot of ideas to many of his customers that saw the bike, so it was good for business. Then the day Todd saw the bike, all he kept saying was, “Redrum, Redrum” and that is what he named the murdered out bagger, Redrum.
After getting the bike home and showing his wife what he had done to his bike, she started to want a bike for herself but hers would have to get everything chromed out. We can’t wait to see that bike. B
