The Bikes of Heavy Rebel


Category: Event


Let the comment hate begin. No kick stand, air ride suspension drops the frame to the ground. It's a mostly hand-built machine and love it or hate it, it was built by a talented guy. This is a prime example of taking the rat rod idea and investing more time and money into than the genre ever intended. Complete with Corona bottles as fuel gauges and a turbo housing as an air cleaner, it was entertainment.  It was also fun to stand and see how many people said, "oh wow, it's turbo charged."


Back Yard Bagger, of Winston-Salem, built these two bikes for the new TV show, Biker Live. The white bike actually does have a turbo charger. The front wheel is massive and the white-wall is not the tire, but a part of the wheel. They both also have air-ride suspension that drops the frame to the ground. We liked the fake patina paint job better than the metal flake #25 bike. The gas tank on the green, white bagger featured a unique leather and aluminum insert. The crew was thinking outside the box on some of these pieces.
