 Bigtwin Bikeshow & Expo 2014 - NIET 1, NIET 2 

Must-see: de Bigtwin Bikeshow & Expo 2014!

De Bigtwin Bikeshow & Expo (van 7 t/m 9 november in het Autotron, Rosmalen) is drie dagen lang de absolute hotspot voor de fans van choppers, customs, cruisers, caféracers en de boeiende lifestyle daaromheen. 

Natuurlijk zijn er heel veel bijzondere motorfietsen te bewonderen: De Bikeshow brengt de mooiste, de wildste, de bruutste en meest exclusieve custombikes van de Benelux, maar ook een aantal uit de omliggende landen, naar Rosmalen! 

Vaste waarde is ook het supergezellige bikercafé – dit jaar gevestigd in het Eventron! met live bands op alle!!! dagen en opwindende Go-Go danseressen. 

Daarnaast veel echt nieuwe onderdelen op de Bigtwin Bikeshow & Expo van 2014: Vakmensen uit de wereld van de custombouw tonen live hun kunsten in bouwen, pinstriping en airbrushen. Vakmensen uit de wereld van de body-art zijn er ook, met sublieme tatoeage en bizarre staaltjes bodypainting. In desperate need of a hair cut? Dat kan! De mannen van de Barbershop uit Arnhem/Nijmegen knippen en scheren je waar je bij staat!

Nieuw is ook de speciale aandacht voor de opkomende generatie jonge custombouwers. Een hele nieuwe garde, met originele ideeën en een geheel eigen aanpak dient zich aan en de Bigtwin Bikeshow & EXpo biedt hen het podium om zich, samen met hun opmerkelijke creaties, voor het eerst aan een groot publiek te presenteren. 

Nog meer show en spektakel gegarandeerd bij de stuntshows in de speciale Demohal, dus… 
Drie dagen topentertainment voor jong en oud en alles daar tussenin. Kom het zelf zien en beleven! 

'Tiger Bike' by Daniel Maag from Switzerland

'Tiger Bike' by Daniel Maag from Switzerland

Daniel explains: "As you can see from my website my speciality is building motorcycles with a personal motto. Some artists use brushes and canvases, some like the famous Tinguely just use scrap metal. For my way of self expression I prefer motorcycles. 
In order to be judged at large events the motorcycles have, of course the bike needs to be road worthy. Later the motorcycles can be exhibited in museums, hotels or in a company lobby.

The motto of my latest creation is 'The Endangered Tiger'

My aim is to build a motorcycle, together with artists from various nations, illustrating a tiger in all his strength and magnificence. This idea of mine is, however, so elaborate and complex that I am involving artists from the USA, Thailand and Myanmar (Burma). I believe that by involving the Asian countries in this concept an awareness of the problem of the endangered tiger could be generated. My motorcycles with personal motto receive more and more

S&S rebuilds stock engines

S&S rebuilds stock engines

Following Harley-Davidson's decision to discontinue its factory engine remanufacturing program, S&S Cycle have issued a timely reminder that their rebuild program is available to authorized Harley-Davidson as well as S&S dealers, and that the program is for remanufacturing of H-D (stock or modified) as well as S&S engines.

The company says that they offer a fast ten working day turn-around from receipt and that you get the same engine back, meaning that you get to keep the original VIN. 

Engines are rebuilt with Premium Viola V-Twin service parts and can be rebuilt to stock specifications or have an S&S performance kit installed, with existing performance upgrades retained if they are still serviceable. 
S&S say that their rebuild program features a 30 day labor and one year parts warranty, and that their beneficial freight rates mean that they offer no cost shipping to their dealers on engines for rebuilding.

Traditionally only available to S&S dealers, if you do not currently have an S&S Cycle account, no problem, because the company says that an engine rebuild package meets or exceeds their annual account spend criteria. 

Corbin Gunfighter Saddle for 2014 Honda Gold Wing Valkyrie

Corbin Introduces Gunfighter Saddle 
for 2014 Honda Gold Wing Valkyrie

Hollister, CA - Corbin’s new Gunfighter saddle is comfortable on a long trip while it looks great cruising the boulevard. They started with their exclusive high density Comfort Cell foam that allows a sleek profile while providing a firm, supportive ride. Then sculpt the rider seating ergonomically to fit the curve of your body and provide better weight distribution. This also helps to eliminate the centralized pressure felt from the stock seat. In the nose area, Corbin sculpted the saddle narrow to allow for ground reach.

For a solo look, the Gunfighter tail section is shaped to emulate the lines of the bodywork with a fastback tail section. On the inside, the tail is padded and upholstered to provide for short trip passenger capability. Although the shaping of the tail is designed primarily for looks, the Comfort Cell foam still provides a good perch for your copilot on short to medium length trips.
Notice how close the Corbin saddle fits to the tank, tail section and chassis... this kind of fit comes only from a Corbin saddle and their unique Fibertech basepan. Corbin’s rigid base material not only fits perfect to the bike, but provides a firm foundation to support the carefully designed foam shape. Corbin's ergonomic shaping creates a visually pleasing look on
