"Tattooed for LIFE" Victory Custom Bike by Klock Werks. You could WIN this Bike!

 "Tattooed for LIFE" Victory Custom Bike by Klock Werks. You could WIN this Bike!

 Bike Name: "Tattooed for LIFE"
 Builder: Team Klock Werks, Mitchell, SD
 Paint: Gasoline Art-Darren Wenzel
 Bike: 2010 Victory Kingpin

Raffle tickets will be sold here, by the team at Klock Werks, and at participating retailers beginning March 1st with the winner to be drawn at the end of the week "Biketoberfest" in Daytona 2012 (one of Vic's favorite trips with the Klock Werks Krew).

The project is based on a stock framed Victory Kingpin and the return to popularity of cafe' style bikes. The needs for young riders to obtain a high value bike with a 100 inch V-Twin motor, inverted front suspension, monoshock rear, and phenomonal style have never been more obtainable than the Victory Kingpin.

The design team at Klock Werks customized it by starting with Vortex clip-on style handlebars and modified rearsets to change the rider position. The reliable stock gauge was frenched into the factory headlight housing. The pipe was kustom built utilizing a Kerker canister and cermachrome heat coating.

The motor was treated to a Lloydz Motor Werks cam and torque tube upgrade and ignition is controlled by a DynoJet PowerCommander. For aesthetics all the engine and transmission covers were coated in gloss black powdercoat with chrome hardware.

The handbuilt steel rear tail section utilizes a factory Victory Hammer tailight and is cloaked in satin white PPG paint. Little details like the brushed levers, fork caps and controls, a lengthened rear shock link to give a more aggressive swingarm angle, a kustom cut stock belt guard, Klock Werks front fender and control mounts all show what can be done on a budget.

A stock left Victory fork leg was upgraded to add a second front brake. The stock wheels were painted and shod in world class Pirelli rubber to aid performance.

The race inspired, tattoo tribute graphics of Vic and Austin were artistically done by Darren Wenzel of Gasoline Art in Austin, TX. Vic was a tattoo artist as well as a valuable Klock Werks employee, and the graphics are actually representations of some of Vic's tattoos.
