This bike started life as a 2008 HD Night Train, ran into a car, and totaled the front end only, no other damage. That is why it has a Harley VIN #, and can be insured as such! It was bought by EXILE Cycles after close examination, and sold to me, then given to the Mohawked Master himself, Russel Mitchel, to do his bad-ass magic on! I wanted the XL Sporty tank to ride the back-bone of the frame "Frisco" style, I also had fallen in love with the XL Sporty tank on "Brown Pearl" where the name "EXILE" is chiseled into the tank & had to have one - lucky for me there was ONE left! I needed a high quality saddlebag on one side w/ a spare liter gas can attached, and suicide shifter. None of these were problems for Russel, so papers were signed, money exchanged hands.
So, we had a motor and trany from Harley, and the EXILE parts catalog! I liked the wide front tire & even wider rear tire industrial look of other EXILE bikes so we went with a 200 Avon at front and a 250 Avon rear, laced to custom THICK spoke rims. I am a big dude and needed some road comfort, so we went with a soft-tail frame with Ape hangers to steer. There is all kinda magic in those triple trees and bars; no levers, no master cylinders, no throttle, lines, wires, switches, nothing! Rear brake is also the rear drive sprocket! Brakes are 60% front - 40% rear valve controlled by right foot pedal. Clutch is left foot pedal and is centrifugal! Which means it does NOT engage until the right RPM's are reached. Shifting is done by left hand. Turn switches, headlight Hi/Low beam, horn, starter - are all micro switches under left grip. I will teach new owner how to turn on/off and calibrate computer when bought! It is all from NASA/ aerospace tech tho! Custom exhaust - sounds fantastic! Never wrecked after becoming an EXILE, no dings, no scrapes, garage kept, everything works great!
I just don't ride it much any more, to many other toys, and life has gotten busy! I know what I have, I know how much I paid for it, no time limit to sell, this bike has been in several magazines, is in the EXILE catalog - named "Tough Train," and I do NOT have to sell it in the first place. So lets NOT waste each others time with BS offers! Looking for cash for my NEW project truck, but willing to look at clean El Camino's, GTO's and other hot rods, money & car or bike combo's as well!
Please let me know if you have any other questions? I am trying to get a guy to do a video of it for the sound and better views of it as well!
