Heartland USA – new Dyna conversion kits
Recently acquired by industry veteran and former Sales & Marketing Director Lonny Spiva (see AMD November), Heartland USA has moved quickly to add new product options to its already wide ranging program of styling and conversion parts and kits with two new kits for Dyna models.
The 200 D (seen here) and 240 D allow for a 200mm and 240mm rear tire respectively, with both utilizing Heartland's patented billet aluminum struts with a steel fender and leather seat. Designed for Dyna models from 2006 and up, the 200 D kit includes a 9” wide, pre-drilled, unpainted raw steel rear fender, leather solo seat with vinyl side bands, and billet aluminum struts that are slotted and pinned for Heartland's patented second seat options. The struts are finished in either chrome, gloss black or ‘TuxCut’; there are two fender lengths to choose from – the Heartbreaker and the Heartlander.
Heartland say that the bike must be lowered to achieve their signature “Heartland Look” and that the rear steel fender horns must be cut off the frame.
The 240 D kit utilizes the Heartland patented struts to allow install of a 240mm rear tire and includes an 11" wide rear fender (unpainted raw steel), solo seat, a 1/4" primary offset kit with 20mm belt and steel swingarm system with axle. Three fender choices are available - Heartbreaker, Heartlander and a Heartlander with plate holder and cat-eye LED Light.
Options include internal strut lights, swingarm in raw or gloss black and struts in chrome or gloss black. The rear portion of the frame supports must be removed and a custom offset rear wheel is required with 20 mm pulley – additionally available from Heartland.
Both Dyna conversion kits have the option of a quick release second seat and the option of attaching travel sidebags to the second seat. The “Ride, Rack and Rest” is a quick-release package option for two-up riding with luggage that is compatible with all Heartland conversions.
