Thanks to a recent surge in two-wheel popularity, there are many extremely talented motorcycle builders who use small shops and back yard shade trees to build some of the nicest custom bikes on the road. Unlike some of the bigger names in the market, these creations aren't just assembly line, sell to the highest bidder business boosters either; they're highly detailed, highly thought out machines which culminate through the blood, sweat and tears of a passionate enthusiasts who strive for perfection. Built by a fanatical owner who spared no expense to create the ultimate hobby piece to show off and enjoy, this 2005 CMX custom softail takes the 'best of everything' approach to a whole new level.
If you were into 1932 Fords, and had the means to build your own version of the ultimate Deuce, utilizing all modern amenities, chances are you would use virtually no original 1932 parts. Rather, you would select the best aftermarket components available to build your ultimate car. The "custom Harley" world offers the same advantages; virtually every component needed to build the ultimate custom bike is available from the American aftermarket. This softails custom build began with a 2005 Chassis Made Xtreme (CMX) frame that was fitted with a custom Paul Yafee fuel tank and awesome, contoured fenders. Once those parts were properly aligned and all the bikes clearances were met, both the frame and sheet metal were sprayed in incredible tri-tone House of Kolors custom metallic paint and covered with a thick clearcoat shell. The end result is a spectacular glossy finish that doesn't appear as overdone as most of the professional builds, yet still manages to convey a uniquely custom appeal.
With the dramatic paint curing to perfection, the build was completed by a number of purposeful and professional tweaks which add an aggressive and timeless visual sizzle. Up front, a polished telescopic fork holds a modern chrome headlight above a 21 inch Pro One 'Storm' polished aluminum wheel, a 90/90 Metzeler tire and a Hawg Halters four piston chrome brake caliper which clamps a large drilled brake rotor. On top of the polished fork, custom metallic brown handle bars hold aggressive looking polished rearview mirrors above chrome hand controls and a slick Dakota Digital speedometer. Behind those handle bars, the bikes CMX frame holds a polished and completely chrome detailed S&S V-twin engine above a wicked looking polished BDL 3 inch belt drive. Above that belt drive, a custom tan leather seat sits in front of a ridged rear fender that caps a second Pro One 'Storm' aluminum wheel that's wrapped in a wide 280/35 Metzeler tire. At the side of that tire, a Hawg Halters sprocket secures a second Hawg Halters chrome four piston caliper and second drilled rotor across from a vertically oriented tag bracket and chrome LED tail light. Fully sorted, 100% road ready and turning heads all day, this custom softail bike would be right at home cruising the strip on a hot summer night or carving up curves on a bright fall afternoon.
Despite being considered low tech by some, the softail frame is a blast to ride, and is a blatant nod to the heritage of American motorcycles. On this CMX custom softail, Legend Air Ride Shock absorbers are positioned along the axis of the motorcycle to both add to the vintage hardtail look and provide a modern feeling that doesn't fatigue the rider. Power comes from a proven 113 cubic inch S&S Super Sidewinder V-twin engine that utilizes 93 octane pump gas, roller rockers and a traditional 'square motor' configuration with two valves per cylinder to create a stout 10 to 1 compression ratio and a broad, flat torque band. Founded in 1958, S&S Cycles is one of the biggest and most trusted motorcycle engine builders in the world, and this choppers V-twin is one of the smoothest and most powerful engines they produce. At the top of the highly detailed motor, chrome rocker box covers sit above “S&S Super Stock” scripts that are stamped on the polished, air cooled cylinders. On the right side of the bike, an S&S Cycles 'Super G' one barrel carburetor sits behind a chrome “S&S Super” branded air cleaner that's positioned just above custom stainless steel exhaust pipes. Below the carburetor, chrome rod covers lead your eye down the motor to a polished S&S cam cover that hides an S&S 600 cam behind great looking Accutronic forward controls. On the left side of the bike, a gloss black Dyna Coil sits in front of matching black plug wires that snake to the engines spark plugs on either side of a chrome ignition switch. Under the seat, a custom designed oil bag blends perfectly into the bikes metallic brown frame, and a polished Roland Sands Design 6-speed manual transmission sits just inside a nice looking Arlen Ness kickstand.

What Customers Are Saying
After hearing good things about the people at RK Motors, I contacted them regarding consignment of my street rod. I found Tony Klein to be a pleasure to work with. He was very professional and forthcoming in our communications. He evaluated my vehicle and made suggestions of enhancements which would help ensure the desired result would be achieved in the marketing of the vehicle. We agreed on an acceptable sale price. Following the completion of the recommended items, I brought the vehicle to RK for consignment. After a thorough inspection and correction of some minor issues at what I considered a fair price, the vehicle was offered for sale. It sold quickly with me receiving the agreed value. I would have to repeat the recommendation that I received. RK Motors does what they say they will do, and obtains for the seller a fair and agreed value. What more could you ask for?Doug C.
