2011 POLICE ROAD KING 103
The “Crow Bagger” is our Special project to show that we can build really extreme bikes. We had very positive and good emotions in all the shows we brought the bike with us to. 30” front wheel was a real challenge for us as we wanted to make this bike “not show only”, but drivable too. So special extended frame and special triple trees were very important part of the project. This time we were not able to work without air ride as we did on few 26” front wheel baggers. So we had to put front and rear air rides, mounted rear drop seat frame, took really long and extended 8” bags, special made rear fender with old-school Cadillac tail lights. The look we wanted to get for this bike was retro “old-school”, so paintwork was really important. It took long hours to get the bagger look a little bit dirty and burned from fire, but the final result was very original and the bike felt harmonic.
So later we made several tests with the seat and came to final decision with this one on the bike.
It is not the first bike that we were designing with our custom seats, but this one was the most important. There were a few attempts to use different materials and fabrics and different shapes of the seat. All the seat parts were handmade and it took us a lot of time to get that look, but now it flows as one body with all other parts.
Such a big bike, but small things are the ones that matter. Everything was planned and almost all hand constructed, from retro colors wiring to the rocker bolts. Special biker faces bolts where made from silver - we wanted to have unique little things.
Most important was to test this bike to be guaranteed that we can make it ride. I can say you honestly - it feels crazy driving this bike. I don’t know what it is, but it feels special. I thought that it will be more difficult and you will need to adapt it to yourself, but I was wrong. The only thing you must care when driving this monster is the radius of your turn over. After all - it's a 30" wheel!!!
Why "The Crow"? We had two wild crows in our workshop at that moment we were building bikes. The birds grew up, the bike is finished and everybody is happy and free.
