W&W Good Stuff: CRS Ceriani 180 Four Leading Shoe Brake

CRS Ceriani 180 Four Leading Shoe Brake


As we all know, the stopping power of stock Harley front drum brakes is not 
exactly what you really need in an emergency situation. 


A completely different animal, however, is the CRS reproduction of the Ceriani 180 four leading shoe drum brake. It was made for the race track and it doesn’t make a secret of it. Four cams and four leading brake shoes will stop any Milwaukee beast, however mighty. Two large air scoops with help with cooling everything. These mechanical masterpieces are made in small numbers using traditional workmanship, which gives them the classic appearance and power of the originals. Installation should be left to the professional mechanic as it requires fabrication of brake anchors and cable operation.



⚠︎ This racing brake is not intended for heavy Full Dressers, 
but for lighter bikes like Sportsters, Choppers, etc.

Kuryakyn Prism+ L.E.D. ‘Ecosystem’

Kuryakyn Introduces Prism+ L.E.D. ‘Ecosystem’ 

Advanced Bluetooth-controlled accent lighting combines style and safety.

SOMERSET, WIS, — Take custom accent lighting to another level and turn any ride into a rolling canvas of light with the new Kuryakyn Prism+ L.E.D. ecosystem. The expandable network of high-output smart L.E.D.’s amplifies style and safety with vibrant multi-colored illumination exactly where you want it, plus auxiliary run, brake and turn signal functionality to boost on-road awareness.


Prism+ Core, Impact and Pro L.E.D. Light Kits offer all-inclusive accent lighting experiences for any motorcycle or vehicle operating via 12V DC battery. The expandable Prism+ L.E.D. network also includes additional vehicle-mounted light accessories, as well as headlights and passing lamps that create a fully panoramic smart system all powered by the four-channel Prism+ Bluetooth Controller. 


The Prism+ Bluetooth Controller’s four independently controlled zones (two front, two rear) offer maximum coverage and control of the vehicle’s lighting. The four zones create one of the most robust and highly customizable accent lighting systems available, all controlled by the feature-packed Prism+ App.


Through the Prism+ app, users can program millions of one-touch color options and utilize any of the four preset displays including “Ride” mode, which designates the front zones as static amber and the rear zones as static red auxiliary running lights. Other functional on-road features like optional complementary brake and rear turn signal lighting help significantly enhance visibility toward other motorists (brake/turn integration available on select models). 


Additionally, the Prism+ app features an integrated battery voltage monitor with automatic shut-off to prevent over-consumption. The app also allows users to create and save custom display modes, bring sound to life with music-sync mode, easily match any color via camera-recognition and much more. 



The Prism+ system also includes all-new Orbit Prism+ 7” and 5-3/4” L.E.D. Headlights and 4-1/2” Passing Lamps. Overall rider vision is significantly enhanced from the high-output projection-styled L.E.D.’s, while integrated Bluetooth-controlled multi-colored halos sync with the rest of the Prism+ network for an additional burst of style.



Plug-&-play installation with convenient “daisy chain” connectors allows easy expansion with additional Prism+ Pods or 4” and 8” Flex-Strip Lights. Users can also add the Prism+ Roulette Wheel, a two-piece clamp with 16 ultra-bright L.E.D.’s designed to mount around the front axle spacer on most Harley-Davidson® models, or the Prism+ Flare Lights that feature a flexible steel mounting bracket for pinpoint illumination wherever you want it.



All Prism+ components feature durable IP67-rated sealed waterproof housings and connectors for safe operation in any riding environment. For more information and to view the full Prism+ product lineup, visit www.kuryakyn.com/c/prism.

New Suff at W&W: S&S SH74-Series Early Shovelhead Style Engines

S&S SH74-Series Early Shovelhead Style Engines

The legendary Early Shovelhead generator engine was made by the Motor Company for 4 years only, from 1966-1969, and today it’s a rare bird. This version by S&S with stock 74 cubic inches combines authentic retro style with today’s technology for thousands of trouble-free miles. 





Fully assembled with the best components S&S has to offer, so factory specs are at least met and in most parts exceeded. The latter include bullet-proof steel flywheels, reinforced connecting rods, billet oil pump, billet rocker boxes, and roller rockerarms. The installed S&S 513G cam provides higher lift and increased valve timing for better performance. 




SH74 Early Shovelhead engines come without intake manifold, carburetor and ignition, so you can choose whatever seems appropriate for your needs. Crankcases, cylinder heads and the gear cover have a cast finish, cylinders are black powder-coated and the rocker boxes are polished. Top end oiling is provided through the pushrods which makes external oil lines obsolete.

NITRO WORLD GAMES ANNOUNCES ADDITION OF RSD SUPER HOOLIGAN NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP

NITRO WORLD GAMES ANNOUNCES ADDITION OF RSD SUPER HOOLIGAN NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP TO UTAH OFFERINGS PLUS, NEW DETAILS ON ATHLETES, VENUE, AND MORE

Salt Lake City, UT – As if the 2019 Nitro World Games in Utah weren’t already action packed enough, Nitro World Games has expanded its race offerings by adding the high intensity RSD Super Hooligan National Championship (SHNC) to the schedule of events. Produced in partnership with the Utah Sports Commission, Nitro World Games returns August 17th at Utah Motorsports Campus.

Born from the days when racers rode their bikes to the track, competed, and then rode them back home, Hooligan racing features twin multi-cylinder motors only. Bikes are 750cc and above with 19” wheels and tires, and they must have a stock frame. High-powered motorcycles sliding sideways and banging bars is what flat track is all about and while the racing always gets close and personal, the bikes still reach speeds of close to 100MPH. 

The best SHNC riders including back to back champ Andy DiBrino, fan favorite Frankie Garcia, and current points leader Joe Kopp will be coming to Nitro World Games Utah to turn and burn in hopes of walking away with some cash but even more bragging rights from an extra special round of racing.

“The Super Hooligan Championship Series races are the perfect match for the Nitro World Games. SHNC riders are from every walk of life from Actions Sports athletes to welders, bike builders, artists and old pros. The one thing they all have in common is the ability to push heavy street bikes past their limits, exhibiting true heroics on two wheels.” said Roland Sands,

Corbin Rear Fender / Undertail
2019 Indian FTR 1200






The FTR is a great bike and we really appreciate the Flat Track inspired visuals. Unfortunately when it came to the stock license plate mounting arrangement we found ourselves a little less inspired.

As you can see, taking a few bits off the back end and converting to a small fender like this one really cleans things up visually! 
Constructed of durable ABS, the Corbin undertail kit provides a very clean appearance and tightens things up under the fender. It comes in a carbon-fiber look to keep the race bike theme. Works with your stock turn signals and license plate light. Mounts up without any
