Our 2019 Battle of the Kings entry, built in collaboration with the EMERGE school, was built in tribute to the parent-child bond that comes from reviving an old motorcycle. Built and painted to resemble an old flat track racer, this is one of the most involved and unique builds we've ever created. A custom welded fuel tank, chopped sportster fender, sprotor braking system, and modified Dominion collection grips and pegs give this ride a jaw-dropping look, whereas the 107" Milwaukee-8 motor and upgraded intake and exhaust system give it all the modern power you could ever need. Street legal and track tested, this bike was named the dirt category champion and a top-3 finalist for the United States in the 2019 competition.
Built to match the aesthetic and grit of our favorite local distillery, Bozeman Spirits, this custom sporty is decked out with brass and wood grain accents, a shot glass intake, internal clutch, jaw-dropping custom paint from Brett McGinley, and much more... See it in person in their tasting room in Downtown Bozeman!
The YHD team is proud to present the Turbo Boss. For those of you that remember the Boss 302 of the 70’s, the color of this bike should strike a chord. For 2018, H-D released a limited edition paint set based on “Grabber Blue”, the most iconic Mustang color of all time, and YHD was lucky enough to receive one. The color is "Boss" and it is wicked. The vivid black strobe stripes and HD racing orange accents make for one sexy beast. We took a stock FLTRXS, already blacked out, and blacked it out even more. Look close and you will see that even the little details weren't missed. Little hints of glossy orange peek out from the bottom of the rocker cover and the collars on the push rod tubes. Her orange spark plug wires and orange stitched seat accentuate her lines. But most impressive is the Trask turbo, black and outfitted with blue accents. We invite you to come down and see the Turbo Boss in person.
The Barn Find
The Barn Find was YHD's 2015 entry to the national Harley-Davidson sponsored Custom Kings competition. What started out as a Street 750, ended up becoming the little bike that could. The Barn Find was the National Champion of the first ever Custom Kings contest in the United States. Of all the awards YHD has received, this meant the most. The champion bike was chosen by a jury of our peers, fellow Harley-Davidson dealers. Inspired by the bikes used for board track racing in the teens and early twenties, this is YHD's take on a modern board track racer.
The Maestro was YHD's 2016 entry to the national Harley-Davidson sponsored Custom Kings competition and we are proud of our "Final Four" finish. The voting for the 2016 Custom Kings was not by a jury of peers, instead it was opened up to the entire nation. Voting took place on the Harley-Davidson website by motorcycle and custom build enthusiasts. Social media was the driving force. The inspiration for The Maestro was the root consumer of Harley-Davidson motorcycles. The person that takes the time to visualize and craft a bike as unique as him or her. Maestro is defined in the dictionary as: 1. As an honorific title of respect. 2. A master usually in an art. The Maestro began as a 2016 XL1200X and ended up a masterpiece. We think this bike serves it's name well.
Springzilla started out as a pewter denim 2009 FLSTSB. Once she was stripped to her frame, the fun began. She was drenched in Roland Sands components, featuring a vintage tail section and solo seat. The Vance and Hines 2 into 1 high pipe gave her a voice that couldn't be ignored. The cherry on top? She turns heads with an amazing paint job by McGinley Motorsports. To really appreciate her transformation, check out the stock photo in the gallery. To this day, we receive feedback on how amazing she looked after we got our hands on her. We say - "Take that! Bitches!".
