Tucker Adds Epic Cafe Racer Reversible Conversion Parts
Fort Worth, Texas based Tucker V-Twin has added another new (and unique) brand to its vendor portfolio with Chris Eder's Dallas, Texas based Epic Moto Co. 'Naked Series' range of custom parts and conversion kits.
Eder, with co-founders Kelly Hedgepeth and Earl Warrick, are known for "shaking up the industry and turning heads with killer bike designs," and Tucker V-Twin says that "Chris has done it again with a breakthrough concept that makes high-end customized looks accessible and affordable to all riders."
Epic officially launched in September 2017 at the Geico Motorcycle Hot Bike Tour in Johnson City, Tennessee, but heads were already turning months before when Epic began to entice Harley enthusiasts on social media with images of four concept bikes.
"The response was overwhelming, and Epic Moto Co. is proud to offer its first line of custom parts and cafe racer conversion kits for Harley-Davidson touring bikes called 'The Naked Series', a high-end, modular program of bolt-on parts for fully reversible, warranty-friendly conversions allowing any Harley touring bike to be transformed into a purpose-built, customized bagger.
"With the 'Naked Series', riders can go from bagger to racer and back to bagger-all in their garage". Eder said that "like most Harley riders, I share the insatiable need to feel the raw horsepower and rumble of the Harley, but the weight of a dressed-out touring bike is cumbersome and gets in the way.
"The 'Naked Series' is the solution for riders who want the best of both worlds: touring comfort combined with the performance of a cafe racer-all in one motorcycle." They feature Chris’ signature style that "brings back the thrill of a gritty, heart-thumping ride by stripping away weight and transforming touring bikes into light, fast, ridable machines."
Simple tools are all that is needed to install 'Naked Series' parts; no structural or frame modifications are required. That means the original H-D warranty won’t be voided and a touring bike’s ‘inner cafe racer bagger’ can be unleashed without breaking the bank. "Affordable, lightweight, alluring designs, optimized for performance and speed," says Eder.
