Mission Control

Our thanks to co-founder Bill Bryant at California based Biltwell for this great picture of the company's M-8 hard parts line-up.
Sometimes it can seem that its range of hard parts is a tad random, but far from it - there is system in their ergonomics, and if ever a picture told of a thousand custom combinations, then this is the one - "Hard Parts Made Easy."
"We've made hard parts for Harley-Davidsons since day one," says Bill. "Everything from pegs and seats to bars, risers and grips. When The Motor Company introduced its M-8-powered Softail, we dropped a full range of bolt-ons to help riders customize their machine's control center.

"Engineered to improve ergonomics and handling, Biltwell Tracker bars and Murdock risers are a smart Big Twin upgrade. Accessories like our billet dash panel, utility mirrors and AlumiCore grips harmonize with Harley hand controls and digital speedos to complete the cockpit upgrade. The construction and appearance of these parts and accessories is rugged, performance oriented and super clean."

Punisher and Punisher XL Footpegs
"Our rugged billet aluminum footpegs are styled and manufactured to complement the technology and aesthetic of high-performance Harley-Davidsons. Available in two sizes with a variety of different interchangeable clevises to fit everything from AMF-era Hogs to modern Softails. 

"They are precision CNC-machined from billet 6061 T-6 aluminum. Investment cast chromoly clevises are adjustable, so you can fine-tune peg angle for maximum traction. Replaceable stainless steel pins provide gobs of grip."

Murdock Risers and Tracker Bars
"Murdock risers are engineered tough to endure years of aggressive, high-speed riding. Tracker handlebars are precision-crafted and CNC-bent from seamless, thick walled 4130 Chromoly for unrivaled strength. Assembled together, they're the last cockpit upgrade you'll ever need for your custom Harley.

"Murdock risers are available in both 1-inch standard and oversized models, with the latter featuring beefy investment-cast bar clamps to fit our 1-1/8-inch tapered Tracker OS handlebars."

M-8 Softail Dash Panel


"Our Softail dash panel lets you relocate the digital speedo on the '18-up Street Bob or Breakout after you've upgraded it with Biltwell bars or risers. This stylish, compact accessory fits Tyson and Tyson XL handlebars as well as every Murdock riser in our line."

Utility Mirrors
Utility mirrors mount to a wide range of stock and select aftermarket Harley hand controls with a single stainless steel button head Allen bolt - clean and simple. They are available in two CE-certified shapes - round and teardrop - or a small rectangular model for riders who prefer more compact cockpit accessories. 

Utility mirrors are available in long- and short-arm styles and matte black powder-coat or chrome-plated finishes, and feature injection die-cast aluminum mirror bezel and perch construction with stainless steel ball joint mounting hardware.

Alumicore Grips
While all stock and most aftermarket Harley grips feature some molded plastic construction, Biltwell AlumiCore grips are machined from forged billet 6061 T-6 aluminum. "After precision surface detailing and finishing, we install Thermoplastic Vulcanizate rubber sleeves on each grip for traction and comfort. TPV rubber is soft and compliant, but extremely durable and UV resistant." 

AlumiCore grips are available in dual-cable and throttle-by-wire (TBW) styles to fit a wide range of Harley-Davidson models. Replacement sleeves are also available in a variety of colors.
