Within the Kustom scene a vehicle’s overall appeal can often depend on the smallest details.
From the use of rare or hard to find parts…
On cool and uncommon engines.
Wrapped exhaust’s tied in with a custom painted tank and brass fittings.
Sometimes its a case of using the old items no matter how worn. A custom gear knob and muscle inspired steering wheel are always nice touches.
Sometimes the details are quite obvious and very large. Drag tyres and hand made exhaust system are seriously cool.
The aforementioned tyres look very tough wrapped around VW wheels.
Hand etched covers on this bike engine are the definition of time and effort..
Over engineering is never a bad look as evidenced by this twin Brembo brake setup mounted on the springer front end of a Harley. Brass bracketry is a favourite of mine.
It doesn’t seem that I am alone in my love of brass accessories, utilised in the spring, light bracket, risers and friction suspension on this highly detailed bike.
Could not have said it better myself. Adding a supercharger to the Harley engine is inspired.
Finned rocker covers along with hand formed fuel lines to a polished fuel block, simple and classy.
To finish up Lincoln Rocker covers painted gold to accentuate the painted block, touched up alternator and trumpets. Along with finned and chromed everything.
Details!!! The mark of any quality build.
