Custom manufactured Harley Davidson
Completely designed and manufactured by American Custom Cycle, this motorcycle was built for an individual who had suffered a broken back and paralysis in a previous motorcycle accident. The front section of the frame is from a 1972 Harley Davidson "swing arm". The rear section is from a 1940's era Indian using the "plunger" suspension. The engine is a 100 cubic inch 4x4 from S&S and the transmission is a 5 speed from Rev Tech. A Rivera pro clutch has been installed to replace the stock Harley clutch .The stock FLH wide glide front end was extended 6” over. PM caliper brakes have been installed front and rear. The rear fender struts were originally from a Harley "Soft tail" frame and adapted to this frame. Both the front and rear breaks are operated from the front break control. The clutch handle is in the normal position and shifting is performed by use of a modified tank shift on the left side. The side car and side car frame were designed and manufactured from scratch by American Custom Cycle.
1949 Custom panhead

This is a 1949 Harley Davidson FLH that was built from scratch and designed to replicate the 1940 – 1950 style. The frame is an original Harley Davidson “wishbone” that has had the original mounts restored. It comes complete with an original “pogo” seat, tool kit, spark plug kit, bull horn and oil filter. The tanks and fenders are replicas. The front end is a stock wide glide. There were several modifications and customizations made to this motorcycle to improve its power, performance, safety and durability. These changes include PM caliper disc brakes front and rear, Rivera Pro clutch; Andrews “J” grind cam, Mallory billet electronic distributor, new 12 volt generator and rectifier, an oil cooler and an S&S carburetor


Fully customized sportster

This 1996 Sportster was brought to us completely stock. The owner wanted a retro look back to the 1960s style chopper. We cut and raked the frame, extended the front end to 12 over, replaced the stock wheel with a 21 inch, lowered the rear section and moved the foot controls back to the center of the bike replicating the early sportster style. In addition, we replaced the stock rear fender with a short “bobtail” and raised the gas tank to sit above the frame. Finally, to increase the capacity of the gas tank, we cut the center section out and re-welded it.
