ONNIT Bike Free For Troops

June 10th, 2014

As a thank you to military servicemen,

We have teamed up with Onnit to create this amazing custom Harley Davidson Motorcycle. This 2000 Road King was donated to us as part of our Recycle For The Troops program. The catalyst for this program was Rebel Rock Racing owner Jim Jonsin, who got the bike donated from a lady who’s deceased brother served our Country. It was his bike. From there, we instilled the help of King’s Customs to transform what began as a worn-out bike. King’s is a master at “baggers” which is not our forte’ . We are grateful to Richard King for all his help. The H-D power train is solid. The bike received new paint, new bars, new stretched bags, Frenched rear lighting, polished wheels & brakes. It has a new LePera leather seat (Big Thanks to Christine LePera), dual fishtail exhaust and much more. It’s a timeless classic. And this beast can be yours if you’re a currently active or or veteran serviceman in any branch of the United States Armed Forces or reserves.

AND that’s not all! In addition to giving away this badass bike, Onnit is also going to donate $.50 for every like this page gets, and $.50 for every share this page gets on Facebook up to $10,000 toPros4Vets. So even if you’re not eligible to win the bike, you can still help spread a great message and help contribute to an amazing cause.

Leather Wrapped Aluminum Grips

May 30th, 2014

We designed & crafted these grips because we wanted something truly amazing and just couldn’t find it out there…

Most of the cool grips available are machined from solid billet aluminum or solid brass. However the throttle part of the grip is machined right into the grip from the same metal material. The throttle part of the grip twists in a metal throttle housing… This is bad. Metal on Metal is bad. It gauls up and does not twist smoothly.

There are some companys that have figured this out. They have created a throttle unit from plastic. However the entire grip is mostly a plastic base, then covered in rubber with screwed on aluminum end caps to make the grip look like an aluminum grip. Plus, with this type grip, you can not machine or drill holes into the end if you desire to use bar end mirrors. With ours you can.

Many of the really good performing grips are made at 7/8″ diameter for the sport bike crowd. But what about the American V-Twin crowd?

We have just developed the best performing, best looking grips on the market.

 

We start with solid 6061 billet aluminum and precision machine it to our grip shape. We recess the area where the leather is going to be and then knurl the surface for added security that the leather will not slip. We also recess the end of the grip the perfect size if someone wants to drill it out for use with bar end mirrors. If not, it is adorned with our logo which has been machined in the ends of the grips.

 

We use the best throttle sleeve in the business from G2 Ergonomics. This sleeve is machined, yes machined, from solid PVC. We use an adhesive bonding agent and set screws to perminently secure it to the alumium grip.The G2 Egronamics throttle housing has a ramp built into it allowing you to achieve full throttle without regripping.

 

Prior to anodizing, we scotchbrite “brush” the aluminum grips.

 

Avaialble in Polished, Black anodized & Clear anodized with our logo machined into the end.

 

We cut the veg tanned leather into squares and soak it with water. Then we case it, a process of sealing it in a plastic bag so that the water fully absorbs into the leather rather than evaporating. Once its ready, we join the leather together with the die and emboss it on a 20 ton press.

 

This is what the leather looks like out of the press.

 

Next is must be trimmed to size. Then all the edges are beveled front and back using and edge beveler.

 

The die is air brushed on both sides of the leather.

 

A special leather oil is used to top coat the leather after dieing.

 

Next the sides are burnished using wax and then a wood burnishing tool.

 

Holes are hand puched in preparation for sewing.

 

Perminant adhesive is applied to both the alumium grip and the back side of the leather. Then sewing begins…

 

After sewing is complete, a fresh buffing is given to the new leather wrapped grips.

Below are examples of finished grips to give you ideas what the different finishes look like.

 

There are a total of 36 different color and pattern combinations to choose from… Have fun deciding.

 

There you have it. A grip that performs at the highest level, has exquisite style & design, and feels great to the touch. After all, your hands are your primary connection to your motorcycle, shouldn’t your grips enhance the feel and ride? Treat yourself to the very best. You deserve it.

Made in Oklahoma City, USA.
