Danny Zernicke (Team Lead)- Danny works in the P&A department. Danny is the sporty guru here at the shop and really brought a lot of ideas to the table on this build. His own personal Sportster is truly a work of art.
The Motor Company had control of what bike we could build for the competition. The first Custom Kings build was done using the XG Street models. This time around we got to choose from a few XL models so we went with Iron 883.
Danny- As long as there are big bad bikers, I don't think it will ever live down that moniker, unfortunately. But as far as being a custom of choice, they're affordable, there's a huge amount of aftermarket parts, easily customizable and they're light, fast little shits, which are all winning aspects of building a custom bike, in my opinion.
Nate- My dream build would be a hopped up Road King. I like simple and stripped down, sleeper! Black instead of chrome. Turbo. All go with a little show.
Nate- Jack Daniels and Miller Lite. I drink them both equally and frequently. I have always been a whiskey drinker, due to my grandfather telling me it puts hair on my chest. He was right.
Nate- Medium Rare. I'll eat any steak you place in front of me though!
Danny- I like my steaks like my woman, juicy and pink in the middle..
Last time you were on the ground not by choice?
Nate- After all the dumb shit I have done, I still have all my fingers and toes.
We believe in the term “You get what you pay for”. RSD products are built to last and when it came to our bike, we wanted nothing but the best. We went with the RSD rear-sets for the aggressive riding position. The RSD Slant 2-1 not only compliments the rear-sets, it sounds tough as hell, so we were really happy with that decision. The RSD Velocity Stack gives us the performance we need and compliments the motor covers beautifully. The clip-ons and adjustable levers also gave us the riding position we were after. And finally, the cafe tail section. The tail section and seat gave us a cafe/tracker look that we all were on the fence about. We extended our swingarm six inches, so we modified the tail section to accommodate that. The drag slick flows very nicely with the tail section. The Tail Boss seat and Biltwell grips are a perfect match, RSD products are simply bad ass.
