LINCOLN AND DON are brothers who each own a Harley-Davidson Twin Cam Deuce. Both bikes have similar parts and customising because, as brothers, they chose the parts for their bikes together.
“These are our first Harley-Davidsons,” said Don. “We bought them after some good advice from others who have had bikes before.”
The parts on Don’s Deuce are 90 percent Genuine Harley and include the hand controls, brake lines, big bore kit and cams, air intake, race tuner, brakes, lights seat, foot pegs/grips, wheels, belt guards, forward controls, fuel caps. Don told me that he wanted to show others that you can build a top looking custom bike using Genuine Harley parts, as Harley has many in their range to make your bike look awesome.
I asked him why he build a custom bike in the first place.
“I built a bike to get away from the misses,” he laughed, “and also to get some man-time with my mates.”
The great custom paint job on Lincoln’s Deuce was applied by PJS Custom Paint in Moorooka. The brandy black with coppered marble looks awesome in the sunlight. On the rear guard, it reads ‘Never Satisfied’.
“Lincoln is somewhat fussy,” said Don. “He likes everything in tip top condition.”
The purple, white and silver tribal theme paint on Don’s Deuce was also applied by PJS Custom Paint. It’s called Speechless meaning, Don reckons, speechless when you look at it.
Both bikes have Screamin’ Eagle motors and heavy duty clutches; Progressive front shocks, and have been lowered one inch.
Both wear a set of Vance & Hines, Big Radius, two-inch pipes.
Brakes are PM with full floating discs.
H-D supplied the braided brake lines, bullet headlights and LED lights all around. Wheels on both are H-D Typhoon, front and back.
Both Deuces wear an awesome set of chrome Burleigh Bars to make the bikes more relaxing when they ride long distances; Don’s are called Street Slammers.
Don’s bike wears a Wimmer air-filter; Lincoln’s is a Screamin’ Eagle unit.
Don’s bikes wears Kuryakyn Black Widow forward footpegs with black widow spider inserts.
“We enjoy these bikes thoroughly,” said Lincoln. “Not just for their shiny bits but it is a good social fun outing. We have meet some interesting people along the way, and we don’t think this will be our last attempt at building a bike.”
“I will keep my bike for a while,” said Don, “but I would like to build another one later on.”
