Klock Werks To Premiere “Spirit of Sturgis” Bike At Minneapolis IMS Show

ATT00001

Klock Werks has built a custom Indian that’s based on an original painting, titled “Pappy”, created by renowned artist David Uhl using a well-known photograph of Hoel and his #56 Scout in front of Hoel’s Indian dealership in Sturgis, S.D. Hoel opened the retail location and formed the Jackpine Gypsies in 1936. Two years later, the Jackpine Gypsies held the first rally known as the Black Hills Classic. The rest, as they say, is history.

Making a bit of history again the “Spirit of Sturgis” is owned by Mark Marshall, a friend of Indian Motorcycle Sturgis proprietor Bruce Eide, who owns the “Pappy” painting. The bike will be introduced Feb. 5 at the Progressive International Motorcycle Shows tour stop in Minneapolis and will go on to be displayed together with the “Pappy” painting at Indian Motorcycle Sturgis.

Stay tuned for photos of the custom bike soon.

Bikernet Spotlight — ShockStrap Ratchet Safety Strap

By | Uncategorized

gil-409

ShockStrap has a ingenious Ratchet Safety Strap so you can secure your bike or other cargo during transport. The strap incorporates an additional safety strap on one side of the ShockStrap. If a catastrophic accident happened and the ShockStrap would break, the Safety Strap is designed to keep the tie down tight and in place. The Safety Strap also acts as a limiter so you won’t over-tighten and stress everything you are trying to secure.  The commercial-grade ratchet has an outside release for ease of use. It is bolted on so you can replace it in the future and keep your investment working.

ShockStrap is not affected by most chemicals, sunlight, oil, salt water, fungus and moisture. The ShockStrap maintains constant pressure on the strap when hitting bumps or having side pressure applied to it. You won’t be pulling over every 50 miles or at a gas station break to retighten ShockStraps.

Polyester webbing is used for its superior attributes: it stretches less, is more resistant to rot and mildew, and has a higher strength rating and a softer feel in your hands. The 2″ Polyester webbing has a heavy duty ratchet, a 5000lb breaking strength and the overall Ratchet Safety Strap has a 1533 lb. working load limit. We doubled the hooks and added yellow zinc chromate finish, which offers better weather resistance and durability compared to standard chrome plating. Next to each hook there is an integrated soft loop. This lets you use the soft loop when the hook won’t fit so that you can wrap it around an axle or handlebar and pull it tight against the hook.

 

Available in black only in 9’, 18’ and 32’ lengths for your BIG Toys! –To order call: 888-334-3456 or shop online at www.shockstrap.com
