Once I had past the legal requirements to upsize, I quickly visited the Richardson’s Harley-Davidson® team to fantasise and day dream over what could be next... and to my absolute delight and complete surprise, the stars aligned and I ended up with a Low Rider S!
The Low Rider S Dyna model I have was only out for two years and was incredible popular.. For good reason! In saying that, I knew I wanted to make mine unique, standout and mine! That’s the beauty of Harley, customisation and individualism.
We then spent the next few months building and customising this beast!
Which included bringing in a big bore 117 stage 5 kit from America, upgrading to the Elite Intake, Wrapping the 2 in 1 pipes, side mount oil cooler, digital temperature gauge and finishing it off with 266 CAMS and a NOS kit!
I’ve always like the blacked out, streamline but chunky look so for looks, we have changed just about everything we can – or at least what I wanted to.
Everything that was wrinkle black is now gloss black including blacking out the motor and pushrods, dropped it like it’s hot on super low Burley Slammers suspension, extended fork covers and fork brace, LED head light and grille cover, tough tail tidy with slimline indicators front and back, all grips and foot pegs, fatter back tyre, slimline mirrors, orange sparkplug leads and even the gear chain link to gold.
One of the most unique style modifications we have made is taking the separated 2 tacos - revs and speedo into a single multifunction digital taco. This also meant changing the tank console trim.
Whilst there might be a few Low Rider S’s out there.. I like to think mine is still able to turn a few heads.
