This is a 2012 Softail Deluxe, it has been upgraded to the MAX and totally modified from the engine up. Don from American V-Twin, local to us in Temecula California, Transformed this bike into what you see. Once Don and his crew completes the custom builds, he rides the bike over to us while sitting on a couple of folded up shop towels, then BSC takes over. The seat, tank filler panel and rear fender filler panel are all custom tailored specifically to the owners taste and needs. The seating is low and lean unlike the typical stock frumpy style seats that come on the Deluxe from the factory. The owner Jeff wanted to lose the chrome grab rail style that is on the stock seat and make this a solo rider bike by eliminating the pillion pad as well. The rear fender filler panel design is sleek and finishes off the bike but has a purpose as well, it covers the several holes in the fender that the luggage rack bolts to that doubles as a rear pillion seat mount. With all these changes we couldn’t leave the stock basket weave tank filler on it so we built a custom to match the rest of the project. Once the hand laid up molded fiberglass pans were made and the foam shaping was done, Rich sketched out some simple inlay designs on the panels and had Don and Jeff over for a morning chat about the design, leather, and styling of the covers. After looking over several exotic skins we decided to go with our smooth finish calf skin with limited grain for the outer edges and a beautiful Mako shark skin for the center inlays. This is one tough Deluxe!
