Forking by Frank is Still a Thing!

by Edge with photos by WeedI decided my new fork tubes have to be American made This is my Bikernet report on getting an extended set of fork tubes for my current chopper project. For whatever reason I decided my new fork tubes have to be American made. Why? Maybe because I am still mad at the Chinese government over Covid 19. Maybe I’m upset because Fang Fang knows things she shouldn’t. Maybe I just love apple pie and the red, white and blue. I don’t know why. American stuff is just better. And, do I really need a reason? Jeesh. Click here to read this article on Bikernet.com

Vance & Hines Launches New Limited Production Handmade Stainless Steel Air Intake

Vance & Hines Launches New Limited Production Handmade 90-Degree Stainless Steel Air Intake, Inspired by Popularity of Custom, Performance Baggers Santa Fe Springs CA – January 19, 2023 – Vance & Hines today announced the VO2 Falcon Stainless, a limited production, hand-welded, 90-degree stainless steel air intake, inspired by the handmade exhaust systems that are common on the top professional and street race bikes. The intake fits all Milwaukee 8-powered Harley-Davidson motorcycles from 117ci motors down to 107ci, except those with fairing lowers. The VO2 Falcon Stainless is manufactured by Vance & Hines welders in Santa Fe Springs using high grade, 304 stainless steel tube and is hand TIG welded from pie-cut segments. The process yields a striking array of color and pairs perfectly with a stainless steel 2-1 exhaust system, like the Vance & Hines Hi-Output RR. The system includes a precision CNC-machined, billet aluminum winged mounting plate and an integrated breather assembly. It features the same slant-nosed, high volume oil-media air filter that is used across the VO2 Falcon Lineup. “High performance baggers, inspired by King of the Baggers and BRL, are the hottest Harley customizing trend around the world,” said Mike Kennedy, president of Vance & Hines. ” This new limited-production product not only delivers great air flow, but is the finishing touch to a great looking, go-fast bagger.” Refer: www.vanceandhines.com The VO2 Falcon Stainless retails for $749.99 and will be available in February 2023. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Gear up to ride to your favorite Motorcycling Events, in Style – Click Here to view the all-new 5-Ball Racing Shop.

Auction Item from Bandit and Howard Knight

The Master Leather Worker Supports KidsRide by Bandit with photos by Howard Knight The 6th annual Flying Piston Benefit Breakfast, is set to kick off the 80th Anniversary Sturgis Rally. This celebrity-strewn Meet & Greet held Sunday, August 9, brings together custom builders and industry influencers to support veterans and new rider initiatives through Motorcycle Missions and AllKidsBike. It also features the unveiling of the 2020 Tiny Strider Customs. I was in the process of moving to Deadwood and didn’t have time for a major metal sculpture, but I was inspired by my Howard Knight handmade belt with its intricate leather details. I could make a belt buckle and perhaps he could make a leather engraved belt to match. I could hope. I reached out to Howard and he agreed.
