Candy Red Harley-Davidson V-Rod

I WAS wondering if I could put my V-Rod Anniversary model on your Ozbike website?

Here is the information about the bike: It has an 1130 cc water-cooled engine, 103 horsepower with a custom-made exhaust; 200 mm back tyre; drag bars; v-shaped taillight; reliable bike to ride everyday; speedo is in the air-box.

It used to be blue with silver flames but I changed the paint job to candy red with candy red ghost flames.

I have owned it since new and it is a reliable bike to ride everyday.


Lucky Lucky Bastard wins Elvis Harley

HI—Remember Rick Hills who owned the anniversary Elvis Harley (Number 7 of 30), one of only two that ended up in Australia via a lottery draw to potential purchasers (featured in Ozbike #320).

Anyway Rick called me this morning and Harley-Davidson has done another anniversary model to celebrate Elvis’s return to Las Vegas in 1969. This time they only produced five of them worldwide. Well Rick, the lucky bastard, put his name in the draw again and won Number 1 of 5! It’ll arrive here in Perth in August.


Awesome Sprint Bike

GUYS—This has to be the most impressive thing I’ve seen in a long time. A fair dinkum, metho-burning, 700-hp sprint car engine in a bike running sweet as.

The guy riding it is like Hagrid out of Harry Potter; massive bloke who makes the bike look normal.

Excavated cubic metres of dirt every time he took off in a huge rooster-tail. Makes a pass, hits the brakes, spins it around at the other end, and blasts back again as if it was a dirt bike.

Never seen anything quite like it. Awesome!


Sweet Harley Rides in Northern Rivers

MY BEST mate Joel and I would love to see our bikes in your top class magazine. Joel and I are in our early 50’s and pretty much old-school type of guys. We are in the Northern Rivers area of NSW around Kyogle.

Info on Joel’s Bobber: 1700 cc; 50 mm Pegasus throttle-body; C11 cams; custom maroon pearl paint (painter unknown); American custom wheels; Vance & Hines pipes.

My Harley-Davidson Breakout has Screamin’ Eagle Stage 1 kit with Vance & Hines pipes. The paint work was done by the Paint Doctor from Maryborough, Qld.

The seats on both bikes were done by Matt and Ken from MS Muir Specialist Motor Trimming at South Lismore.

Paul O’Brien from Kyogle Cycles looks after our servicing and tuning requirements.

The photos were taken at The Gallery in Grevilia, NSW, where the Rallyman Rally is held on the Queen’s Birthday weekend; thanks to Fred and Colleen for their great friendship. I just live 5 km up the road from The Gallery.

Cheers! Phil Walker.

Bluey Harley-Davidson Heritage Softail

BLUEY is a Harley Heritage Softail bought as a full dresser seven years ago. Over the years l have made it my own. Most important feature is the stick-shift with hand and foot clutch made from a walking stick skull and engineering by John at HD Garage in Bayswater.

There’s also the Freedom exhaust, 16-inch apes, La Pera single seat which l got faux crocodile skin put on.

The back whip was made for me by Paddy Ryan, a bloke in the States.

I currently ride with Aussie Pride SMC; about 60 strong over the state of Victoria.

The stick-shift with hand and foot clutch.

Dirk aka Tiny. PS: At 6 foot 7 inches, and 130 kg, l have been ‘Tiny’ for the last 30 years.

Custom Harley Sportster for Under $10,000

HERE ARE are pictures of my 883 Harley-Davidson Sportster.

I bought the bike for $4000 then changed the tank, put on forward controls, new handlebars, two-inch lowered Progressive shocks, new Wide Glide six-inch raked front-end imported from the States, and a Hypercharger.

Well, about $4000 later, I have a great custom Sporty for under $10,000.

I read your mag every month and it’s the bikes that you display that inspired me to customise my bike. I would love to see my bike in your mag if you think she’s good enough?
