Barnett’s Magazine Online has featured quite a few bikes, especially custom baggers, with tattoo-inspired paintjobs. Some have even honestly looked like the real thing while others, not so much. A paintjob not matter how good, though, is not the real thing. If you want to give your bike a tattoo or two, the only real motorcycle tattoo is metal engraving in my opinion. Needless to say, the Panhead engine and just about any other aluminum part found on this bike went under the engraver’s knife, so to speak.

   Everybody’s got bikes that catch their eye for reasons that are totally unknown especially since it’s not a style or type that’s on their favorite’s list. Sometimes it’s just a striking color or an engine we lust after, but there are a few that just grab you and make you check it out a lot longer than something else in the same category. This is one of those bikes for me and it’s not for the usual reasons. In this case I’m more interested in the owner/builder aspect. Don’t know exactly why, just am.

   You gotta love a guy like Rob Adams of RA Custom Motorcycles in Hamilton, New Jersey, who’s kind of a one-man-show building phantom Panhead choppers on his own late into the night. Rob does a serious bit of everything there from engine work to, well, whatever he’s got to do to turn out some very good looking rides with the best accessory of all ─ license plates. They’re all real world custom bikes with a million-dollar style to people who want to ride it as well as look at it.

Every bike’s got a story behind it and this striking white board track/bobber built by Jon Shipley of Hoosier Daddy Customs in Bloomfield, Indiana, is no exception. Apparently the wheels began to roll after winning the Modified Harley class at the Harley-Davidson Museum’s 110th Anniversary Show. There were two perks Jon got besides winning the class, the first was a Screamin’ Eagle Pro 120R engine and the other was having the legendary former head of Harley styling and all-around cool guy, Willie G. Davidson, present it to him. But that’s not the end of the story as you might have guessed.

  Some builders like the builder of this bike, Rodney Smith of Southeastern Customs in Supply, North Carolina, you just gotta love ‘em. Rodney builds what he wants regardless of any trends and never does the same thing twice. He’s a hot rodder at heart as well as a motorcycle freak and the crossover skills from restoring and modifying American iron have given him a different outlook on what he likes in a custom bike. Whether it’s his Shelby Cobra trike or his personal everyday Shovelhead custom, the man’s got his own vision and he’s not afraid. Two great attributes any builder should have and old Rodney’s got ‘em in spades.

Hey all you big wheel bagger haters, before you go all crazy and just write this off as one more custom big wheel bagger, take a closer look. There is a lot more going on here than meets the eye. As for you big wheel bagger lovers, there’s quite a different approach being taken leaving off possibly the most important element a radical big-wheel bagger offers, the paintjob.

Like so many custom bikes we feature from shows where our photo lad, Mr. Jack Cofano, cannot find out who built or owns the custom bike he’s photographing, this one is also Unknown. But, as you might have noticed, I spelt unknown with a capital U and theoretically that’s incorrect except that it isn’t. The radical Road King you’re staring at was built by Unknown Customs in Gainesville, Georgia, with Greg Wingo at the helm. So, what are the odds of one more unknown custom bike built by somebody we know? Apparently pretty good I guess.

Just like Queen’s famed chorus everybody knows, another Buell bites the dust. Surprising actually is that there are any left still basically stock as early steel-framed Buell were the donor bike of the early and mid 2000s. I mean, how could you beat dirt cheap, premium components and loads more power than a Harley-Davidson Sportster for a price less than just a Sporty motor by itself?

  What you see is not always what you get is an old saying that certainly holds true here. On a cursory glance of the .jpg of the right side of this bike I thought it was some cool old crock and decided to check it out. Then I noticed it and felt a bit surprised at myself for not having seen it like some kind of Harley expert would in a half-a-millisecond. The bulbous primary of a Sportster engine from the infamous AMF era was a “Hey!” moment. There was a lot more going on here than some nice old bike.

Sometimes it doesn’t take too much to lose interest in checking out a chopper. Could be a color you hate or a style you don’t care for or maybe just finding out what you thought was something is not that something at all. There’s also a good chance finding the deep, dark secret doesn’t mean a thing to you either. I think that’s exactly the case you’re looking at here.
