This fabulous machine was just completed July 2015 by the renowned RODS & RIDES MOTORCYCLE COMPANY. The company is known for award winning top of the line motorcycles though out the world. As a U.S. Manufacture, ODS & RIDES has won at every show ever entered and has been showcased in the largest motorcycle magazines around the globe, ot to mention televised on several networks through out the years. Rods & Rides is not a customizer of other motorcycles but instead a ground up inventor and designer.

This year, he bike being offered known as “The Big Red Devil” was built for one reason, o show the bagger enthusiast at Sturgis that to win a show or steel the peoples eyes, t can be completed with steel not fiberglass, ngenuity not duplication, nd by going outside the norm of the bagger world known for there long and low unrideable machines built for looks only. This machine was built like no other bagger ever and is a true one off machine in every aspect. Also not to forget, he machine rides as good as it looks and will power past anything on the road.

The beginning of the project began at Shapiro Metals, t. Louis MO. This is where all the materials where purchased to start the project. As with most custom baggers, hey start with a factory touring Harley either new or even wrecked, ot this one though. The machine began with straight mild steel stock and was bent and TIG welded piece by piece until the chassis was formed to support the rest of the project. The front end was purchased new and was build to simulate the early 40’s Harley Style. The sheet metal tank and front fender has been hand formed for this particular machine by FATKATZ. The tank was something built for this project and not something that can or will be duplicated in the future, true one off masterpiece. The rear section was a combination of metal that RODS & RIDES created in house from the taillight housings to the side covers in front of the bags; no small detail was left untouched.

The chassis was a large item to start because every machine RODS & RIDES builds is not rubber mounted nor do they need to hold an intercooled Turbo Evolution engine of this magnitude. The chassis took several months to complete but once completed, he rest went together very smooth. The machine was fitted with rear air ride with its own VIAR pump to lift and lower the machine. It also received several lighting enhancements from the golden ages of the great ones. The rear lights where donors from a 1959 Cadillac and the front headlight from a 1932 Ford Roadster. The machine does not have any ugly wiring or switches; everything is neatly tucked away and looks as though it may not even run.

The engine of course is a major focal point to this bike. It all started out at Midwest / Ultima Products, t. Louis, O. The competition Evolution style engine has been upgraded with several in house tricks. It also was fitted with a Precision T3 Turbo, hich includes an intercooler and scavenge pump. The Mikuni flat side blow proof carburetor, uel pump, acuum regulator, nd the rest of the tuning equipment was individually built by C&S Specialties Fuel Systems St. Charles MO. The engine produces over 300HP with the less than 12lbs of boost. Mating the engine and fully polished Delkron 6 speed transmission is a 2” custom primary also built by Midwest.

The stainless exhaust and aluminum intake where all built in house specifically for this build and then sent to “Arkansas Jim” for a full polish job. He also took care of all the chrome plating required for all the mounts and hardware. The wheels are chrome plated standard spoke style, assive 26” front and 200mm rear. To stop the rolling bullet, erformance Machine was chosen for the front and GMA for the rear. The bike is also chain driven in lieu of a week belt because of the massive amount of power this cruiser makes. Don’t be fooled by the power though…. The bike still runs as smooth and comfortable as any other stock touring bagger.

After the machine was completed with its Candy Apple Red House Of Kolor paint job, t was fully assembled by the founder of Rods & Rides, .D. Ward. The machine was then sent off to Sturgis SD for the 75th Anniversary Rally & Races.

At the event, he machine was entered into several Shows; Easy Riders, ats Hole, nd the famous “Sturgis Baddest Bagger”. The Baddest Bagger show took place and this awesome machine was picked by Michael & Angie Ballard, wners of the world famous Full Throttle Saloon “FTS” as the Baddest Bagger Sturgis 2015. This was truly a once in a lifetime experience to be awarded at every show and at the largest gathering ever in Sturgis.

With all this being said, his is a chance of a lifetime to own not only a piece of history but a one off machine that no one can ever duplicate. The Big Red Devil has been photographed by Don Kates of Shooters Images and will be featured in Baggers Magazine and televised later this year. If you have been looking for something special, his is just that…
