Custom Bike Show, Twin Club, Norrtälje

Custom Bike Show
Twin Club, Norrtälje, Sweden, June 1st 2019

Twin Club MC celebrated its 50th anniversary by staging the 45th annual Custom Bike Show at Norrtälje, Sweden, featuring 200 bikes entered in six classes.
This was the fifteenth year of affiliation for the longest established AMD World Championship of Custom Bike Building affiliate event, and over 7,000 visitors and 4,000 bikes from around Europe braved the rain and came to enjoy a weekend that is internationally renowned for the quality of bikes seen there. 

Competing builders travelled from across Scandinavia and Europe, with bikes coming from Switzerland, France, Latvia and the Netherlands as well as the regular attendees from Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland. Reflecting the increasing international flavor of the event, 30% of the exhibitors and half of all winners were from outside Sweden.
Three separate judging systems are used to determine the winners, with a jury of industry professionals deciding on three World Championship affiliate prizes, with the competitors deciding the class prizes, and a Public Choice winner, fittingly won this year by Twin Club President Micke Sandberg for his Harley chopper.

Charlie Swordson, Falun, Sweden

Following the success of the merged "Modified Standard" (including all OE stock models) and "Racer" classes introduced last year, these were retained and an additional "e-Custom" prize introduced for electric powered bikes. Three bikes were eligible for the prize, which was won by Anders Theo for Aliquis A1E, a street legal electric racer, also featuring hub-center steering.
This year's jury, which included Indian Motorcycle's Director of Product Design Ola Stenegard, renowned photographer Michael Lichter and AMD World Championship prize winner Peder Johansson of Hogtech, selected three AMD prize winners, who will all be making their World Championship debut next year.
Charlie Swordson, from Falun, Sweden, is better known for his work on cars, but won the jury's first place vote for his classic Swedish style long fork Harley-engined chopper. Second place went to Mikka Takala from Finland for his Harman girder front end Harley chopper "Personal Jesus", and third place to Daniel Andersson from Borlänge, Sweden, for his Norton 961 engined cafe racer "Darton". 

Mikka Takala, Finland – "Personal Jesus"

All three winning builders win expenses to compete at the 14th annual AMD World Championship of Custom Bike Building, which will take place at INTERMOT Customized in October 2020.

Daniel Andersson, Borlänge, Sweden – "Darton"

The entry which attracted most interest at the show, however, was Custom class winner "Aerium", built by Peter Forsberg of Brooklyn Choppers Garage, of Gävle, Sweden - a steampunk styled "art bike" which runs on compressed air. 

Wild Card: Peter Forsberg, Brooklyn Choppers Garage, Gävle, Sweden – "Aerium"

The jury was impressed enough with the innovation shown to offer Peter a "wild card" invitation to Cologne in addition to the three World Championship prize winners.
Our thanks, as always, to Twin Club MC for their meticulous organization, Custom Chrome Europe, Motorcycle Storehouse and Zodiac International for their support of the event, and the City of Norrtälje authorities for their biker-friendly attitude and use of the Central Park for the event.

Darkhorse Crankworks

Darkhorse Signature Series 'Man O'War' Crankshafts

Internationally recognized for innovations such as its Pro Plug System, Osman, Wisconsin based Darkhorse Crankworks has long been regarded as producing the strongest foundations for all Twin Cam, and now M-8, performance engines.

At the heart of the "Darkhorse Difference", dealers can "put even more HP to the road without the concerns commonly associated with relying on OEM crankshafts in performance motor builds," says co-owner and General Manager John Dahmer.

"built with a true bottom-up approach"

Built to order in five to eight business days lead time, John said that "Darkhorse Crankworks has always manufactured and sourced absolutely the best products available for building or remanufacturing Harley-Davidson crankshafts. Continuing in that tradition, our Signature Series 4", 4 3/8" and 4 5/8" stroke A or B model sets are a true "built to order" application-specific crankshaft.
"We build with a true bottom up approach, one that allows us to focus strictly on the foundation of all engine builds. We can utilize our nearly 40 years of experience to balance factors from our vast library of engine dynamics with being able to install a wide variety of components and connecting rods that dealers and engine builders simply cannot get 'off-the-shelf' from a distributor.
"This is the primary reason why so much of our business is repeat business. Our dealers know they can rely on our experience, craftsmanship and components for a rebuild and price that makes them look good with their customers.

"vibration analysis and runout measurements"

"It all started with authorized Harley dealers wanting a premium OEM crankshaft replacement, with a premium built crankshaft built specifically for them. They do not want a 'one size fits all' off-the-shelf crankshaft. Now all custom shops and engine re-builders have come to benefit from that premium approach - bottom ends that benefit the bottom line!
"New Darkhorse certified crankshaft assemblies meet our stringent tolerances and are balanced to our specifications. We have formed alliances with top flywheel manufacturers across the USA who supply us with components that we are able to mate with our own precision made parts. The end result is an affordable, top-of-the line crankshaft. 
"Each crankshaft we manufacture is truly unique. They are designed and built specifically for an intended application and customer. If an "off the shelf" crankshaft is all that your build or budget requires, we also stock Harley-Davidson OEM, S&S and other manufacturers' crankshafts, but we have been a pioneer in offering full service to pressed together Harley-Davidson and Buell crankshafts.

"the Darkhorse Difference"

"Our exclusive line of PRO parts includes H-Beam Chromoly connecting rods that are second to none. Options range from inexpensive competition rods for those with a restricted budget that are made from imported forgings, right through to our impressive "Made in the USA" forgings and Carrillo-made connecting rods. 
"Centerlines are machined to within .0003" of each other. They are the only rod that can provide the true .001" stack-up tolerance which is quickly becoming industry standard. All our proprietary bearings and races are available exclusively through us, and our precision balancing method has proven to our dealers, and their customers, the benefits of a properly balanced crankshaft - often said by customers to be the smoothest and most reliable in America.

"the Crankshaft Craftsmen"

"In no small part this is due to our crankshaft vibration analysis and runout measurements. Since 1980, we have performed extensive testing on crankshaft balancing and conducted vibration analysis. We have concluded that the most important unit of measure is the runout at each main bearing race. Runout measured at the end of each shaft is a by-product of those measurements. We are the Crankshaft Craftsmen"!


Tucker V-Twin

Tucker V-Twin Adds Aquatic AV Waterproof Audio Products

Tucker V-Twin has added distribution of the Aquatic AV waterproof Harley-Davidson aftermarket audio product range - stereo systems, speakers, amplifiers, and accessories.
Aquatic AV’s Harley Stereos are designed as an upgrade or replacement stereo for 1998-2013 models and play music wirelessly via a Bluetooth enabled smartphone or MP3 device, or via USB connection. 

Wired connections can also be made with stereo 3.5 mm jack or RCA inputs, and music can be controlled directly from the Harley stereo handlebar controls or from the Bluetooth enabled device. The stereo uses the existing Harley stereo factory mounting bracket and wiring connections, just plug and play.

Driven by their 2-channel amplifier, the waterproof replacement Harley speakers feature a unique tweeter design, allowing it to be rotated 360°, to direct high-frequencies exactly where they are wanted.

DC V-Twin

DC V-Twin - Up to +25% HP Gain for
.465 Lift M-8 cam

Known for enhancing the performance of Harley-Davidsons with its engine performance packages, Derek Churchwell's DC V-Twin Performance has released another "unrivalled" cam shaft. 
The .465 lift M-8 cam shaft is a direct bolt in performance upgrade for the 107", 114" and 117" M-8 engines.  The cam's original design was geared to add superior acceleration on the bottom end and still deliver a big number at the top end of the power curve.
"This cam still hits like the traditional Harley cams that deliver that unique sound," Derek told AMD Magazine, "but once you twist the throttle it is anything but stock.  As you well know, the camshaft is one of the most critical parts of an engine's performance, so look no further than this new cam grind to deliver excellent horsepower and torque curves you desire."
Derek says that Dyno results show almost a 25% gain in horsepower and nearly a 20% gain in torque when coupled with an aftermarket exhaust and air cleaner. DC V-Twin camshafts are made in the USA and are available exclusively through its dealer networks.

Drag Specialties

Drag Specialties Additions

Saddlebag Guards

Drag Specialties' FLHT and FLHR saddlebag guards are designed to protect the saddlebag's leading edges from dings and nicks. Constructed from 7/8" diameter tubing, they are available in chrome or black.  Designed to work with the OEM saddlebag supports, they are sold in pairs for '14-'19 FLHT/FLHR models with or without saddlebag guard rails. 

M-8 Clutch Master Cylinder Cover Kits

These quality chrome covers from Drag Specialties are a custom replacement for the plain black clutch master cylinder covers on M-8 Dressers. "The simple addition of these chrome covers creates an eye-catching contrasting look against the stock black hand control components."  Easy to install, they include gasket and mounting screws for '17-'19 FLHTCUTG/FLRT and '17-'19 FLHT, FLHR, FLHX, FLTRX and FLTRU models.

Inner Clutch Hub

This improved and durable inner clutch hub by Drag Specialties accepts all OEM components and replaces the worn stock part on '86-'90 Sportsters.

Fender Skins

This Drag Specialties fender skin for solo seat riders gives rear fender protection from boot or saddlebag paint scuffs.  Fender skins hug the fender perfectly and are designed to match Drag Specialties solo seats to maintain the clean, minimalist look.  Features include faux exotic centers with leather perimeters and a finished edge and felt liner underneath to protect paint. It also includes a black zinc washer and screw to complete the easy-to-do installation. The fender skin will work with most OEM and accessory seats.

Front Dual Ring Turn Signal Inserts

Available in bullet or flat styles, 2" diameter LED clusters feature an outer ring of 24 white LEDs for a bright cool-white driving light and an inner ring of 24 amber LEDs for an exceptionally bright amber turn signal. When a turn signal is activated, the white LEDs turn completely off for the entire turn signal cycle, providing greater visibility of the amber turn signal.  Sold in pairs, they must be used with a separately available clear or smoked lens; a load equalizer may be needed.



A Touch of Retro - Megaphone Roadster Muffler

Duisberg, Germany based Dock66 has these versatile "timeless reverse cone design Megaphone Roadster Mufflers," and says they make "the perfect silencer for all classic custom motorcycles. The sixties British bike style matches vintage bikes, cafe racers, scramblers and also choppers, bobbers and trackers. 

Available in chrome or black finish, the Megaphone Roadster Muffler is made of heavy duty steel and can be mounted on either side of the bike. Spacers allow universal use for pipes from approximately 36 to 45 mm. Length of the silencer is approx. 480 mm, the maximum diameter is 92 mm and the length of reverse cone is 100 mm.
The mufflers have no ECE-homologation, TÜV approval, or certificate - the only allowed use is for competition/racing or veteran/old-timer and collector bikes.


Rick's Motorcycles

'Fat Ass' Kit for up to 360 Tires in Stock M-8 Softail Frames

Rick's Motorcycles of Baden-Baden in Germany has this new 'Wide Tire Kit' for M-8 Softail models that eliminates the gearbox and primary relocation, right-side drive gearboxes, frame modifications, and welding work associated with 300 mm conversions - the swingarm fits into the original H-D stock frame, with even a 360 tire running centered.

The power distribution is via an intermediate shaft which sits at the pivot point of the swingarm, allowing the motor and gearbox to stay as one unit, with less strain being created and no suspension forces to adversely affect the belt.
Since the primary box remains in the original location, the footrests don't have to be repositioned and ground clearance and lean angle remain the same as stock. To make mounting easier, the black polished, plastic coated (matt black also available) swingarm is prepared for different options such as drive side brake, original brake caliper and side licence plate.

Rick's wheels are supplied with special hubs for this kit so that the wheel runs centered. With the different versions for the various Softail frames and engines, attention was paid to keep the original transmission.
In addition to the 18" swingarm kit, the system was also adapted for 10.5" x 20" to fit the Avon 280/40 R20 tire. Rick's claims that this is the first complete swingarm kit for a 20" wheel in the OE Softail frame.


Barnett Tool & Engineering

Barnett Clutch Spring Conversion Kit

Ventura, California, Barnett Tool & Engineering’s clutch spring conversion kit for 1998-17 H-D Big Twins (except 2013-18 Narrow primary models) includes a CNC precision machined billet aluminum pressure plate and two sets of six heavy duty coil springs. 

Designed to replace the stock diaphragm spring/pressure plate assembly, this spring conversion kit provides smoother shifting and a more progressive, linear clutch engagement. The two spring sets of different tension ratings allow for three different spring pressure options making it ideal for stock to high performance applications.
Installation is ‘bolt-on’ with no modifications required. A hydraulic version is also available.


Baker Drivetrain

Primary Chain Adjuster

The Baker Drivetrain primary chain adjuster bracket looks like the stock 39990-01 style bracket, but has 28% more adjuster teeth.  The finer pitch teeth make it easier to dial in the primary chain slack; also available is a fat adjuster shoe for special applications that require it. Available for 1987-2006 Harley models, except 2006 Dyna.

WolfPack Riding App to Add Motorcycle Dealer-Focused Features

Rockville, Maryland based WolfPack is introducing a new WolfPack Motorcycle app with features designed to support motorcycle dealer needs - WolfPack Central.
These additions include group ride registration, communication tools and insights into rider behavior.

"The additional features we are adding to WolfPack Central are designed to support the business needs of motorcycle dealers.

Kellermann Super Small Micro S Dark

Aachen, Germany based lights specialist and AMD World Championship 'Product Partner' Kellermann GmbH has managed to go even smaller than its popular micro 1000 Dark with a new micro S Dark - an extremely compact version.

Due to the drastic size reduction and the strongly tinted indicator glass, the "indicator" component disappears from view almost completely. In action, however, the high-performance LEDs provide a spectacularly bright light.
The micro 1000 family is one of the really traditional ranges of indicators from Kellermann. they have been installed on different kinds of motorcycle models for more than 15 years. The new version micro S Dark represents the trend to even more compact motorcycle lights.

"The new micro S Dark is really super small - it would even fit six times into the larger micro 1000. This allows an extremely compact and individual design of the tail of the bike. And since Kellermann is the absolute master in high quality compact lights for bikes, this ‘Kellermann’ also impresses with its amazing illuminating power."
Since the complete electronics of the micro S Dark are in the high quality, durable metal casing, this indicator can be plugged into the 12 volt net directly. Featuring Kellermann's EXtranz (Extreme Optical Transparency Technology) Longlife Protection Guard, it is IC operated at 330 kHz and suitable for 12 volt DC applications (comes with M5 x 0.5 x 6.5 mm fastening screw).
