BAD HOMBRE BY WEST COAST HARLEY-DAVIDSON®

THIS IS ONE 'BAD HOMBRE'

There’s a whole world of motorcycling out there, rallies and events open your mind to what other people are riding and what’s possible. At West Coast we’ve always believed in producing rideable customs and in this latest offering from West Coast Glasgow Customs, we’ve been true to that theme. ‘Bad Hombre’ is a true riders custom in which we’ve created a stunning bike yet one you can ride and have fun – not just a show-piece.

BAD TO THE BONE

The inspiration for Bad Hombre comes directly from Fiona Rutherford, our Sales Director, whose immersion in the biking world from a very young age and H-D experience has inspired her to create this year’s Battle of The Kings entry. Using a 2014 Softail Deluxe as a base, this bike now features unique ‘GS Customs’ Gold Fortune paint with rich and intricate layers of gold candy, butterscotch and gold leaf. ‘Big Spoke’ wheels, ‘Lenker’ 18” Apehangers and unique branded leather seat all add to this truly exceptional machine. These statement pieces are accompanied by lashings of chrome to the engine, swing arm, front end and so much more. It contains many subtle hand-crafted items – take a look at the side rails as an example which may look standard, yet are far from it; blended into the ‘Klockwerks’ fender and designed to match the sweeping lines and accentuate the elegance and presence of the Deluxe. To help in our quest Fiona worked closely with Fraser Hine, our Custom Specialist, on every detail to achieve our #29. One of our favourite parts has to be the custom engraved derby and timer covers. Aside from the paint, these are the only items not completed in house by our technician, Darren Heggie.

THE CUSTOM INSPIRATION - FIONA RUTHERFORD

You could say that biking is in her DNA although I"m sure she did not expect to find herself running a busy sales dept in 2010 when she had a Saturday job at Scotbike in Glasgow in the 90"s - but here she is, and having now passed her bike test early in 2008 she"s loving the job and of course the fun of jumping on a bike whenever she can. Being very customer focused and easy to talk to makes it real easy for our customers to enjoy walking in to West Coast. "We want everyone who comes in the store to experience a professional and friendly environment - we"re having fun and we aim to make sure you do too!" She"s already made quite an impact amongst us hardened bikers - just goes to show, you can"t hold back enthusiasm and hard work. The Fat Boy Special is the bike that"s the hardest to grab off her - she absolutely loves it!
