When my Uncle Greg passed away, my dad inherited his much loved Harley-Davidson Road King. He decided to customize it in his honor. This took about 15 months, from a stripped down and modified frame to the final project in the pics. The bike looks runs and rides like a dream. This is the first custom either of us had done, it took time, money and a few cuss words along the way, but we believe my Uncle Greg would have approved. My dad, Jeff Dold, has since gifted me with the bike.
The bike is a 2012 Harley-Davidson Road King. The frame was cut and raked; we added the stretched gas tank, fender and saddle bags with molded side covers. The bike has front and rear air suspension and a 26” front wheel. Drew at Hot Rods & Handlebars in Springfield, MI did the paint, which is a custom mix. The project took Jake and his dad, Jeff, about a year and a half to complete, which Jake stated was “way too long”, but both father and son were working full-time jobs and were not able to always work on it. Jake stated that the, “Design choices were made in order to keep the style timeless”.
