"For the majority of the labor, Mike spent many nights and weekends with his dad pulling things apart and putting them back together. I remember getting excited as more things came off the bike and then eventually piece by piece, new parts started rolling in as the build made some progress. Mike Sr. got Mike into motorcycles growing up, so it was really fun to watch them work together on this project."
"A few of my favorite pieces on the bike are the RSD Slant 2-into-1 Exhaust, the Legend Suspension Shocks, the RSD Clip-on handlebars, Dakota Digital Speedometer/Tachometer, Drag Specialties Legacy Gas Tank, and the Roland Sands Cafe Tail Section. There are a few custom pieces as well - my favorite being the cam cover we cut by hand and then had powder coated locally at Bonehead Performance."
"As great as the build was, I wanted the right paint to really give the bike a distinguishing character. We were lucky enough to have a friend recommend Rich from Ryzart for the paint design. The details are incredible. We had seen some of his work in person and knew that we liked his style and his attention to detail was top notch. He recommended using the gold leaf as part of the design and I am definitely glad we did. We kind of gave him an idea of the color scheme and look we were going for and then he took it from there. In my opinion, the paint job turned out flawless and I’m so grateful for all the hours and effort he put into it."
