Welcome to the Darkside

Custom Harley-Davidson V-Rod built by Darkside Customs.

THIS V-Rod was built to ride every weekend. I purchased the bike in 2017. It was a pretty standard grey with aqua stripes; it wasn’t my type of colour combo.

It was hard deciding whether to go big wheel, either 26-inch or 23, but with the influence from Nathan from Darkside Custom Harleys who convinced me to go with the 23 as I ride the bike a lot and do long distances, plus the V-Rod looked in proportion.

The colour combo was hard also as I didn’t want anything anyone had out there, and with help from Benjamin we decided those colours.

I went from drag bars to 18-inch Burleigh Bars High Balls which made a big difference in comfort and looks.
