Building Custom Softail The Phoenix
The team pulled The Phoenix down to the frame and built it up into a custom sled. Powdercoat was used instead of paint. The powertrain gleams with a coating that resembles ceracoat, a ceramic polymer used in firearms.
The entire bike has a restrained color pallet that catches your attention because it is so unique compared to other custom sleds.
Last year when the Roy attended the J&P Cycles Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Show in Dallas, he met with the boys from Three Two Choppers, Jimmie Lee and Jonathan Coen. They are bike builders with a healthy springer business. So, to give the Softail the right look, Roy made a call to the Texans for a springer.
Roy incorporated their hoop kit to give the springer a little more visual style. The springer was built to hold the fat meat of a 130mm Dunlop donut. Back Bone Customs helped with the brackets to attach the front brakes.
