First off bug shout out to Hyevon Choppers for the awesome job and quick turn around time. We are so excited to have the vicla back at the shop for the next step. Here is a video and a few shots of it now. We decided to change the pulley and rotors also to match the rim and add more chrome. We also added a Road king headlight nacelle The next step is to add all the trim, headlight rings, and of course our engine guard.

Factory 47 has decided to use our good friends at Hyevon Choppers to start our build. We got our rims thanks to our very own good friend Bob. The rims represent a more traditional style spoke with a black lip for the contrast. As for the front front we decided to use Willy Shiny Chrome Exchange. They offer an awesome service all you have to do is take the legs off and exchange them for a great price. This is one of the most important steps and that is why we chose our close friends at Hyevon to make sure the job gets done correctly. Not to mention they offer a lot of great advise for comfort, safety and style. The bike will be ready soon from them and we will keep you updated. Click below to view there links.
We do not know which step should be first in designing our vicla project but we thought it would be best to start with the funnest step, air bags. Plus with the air bags complete we can get a better idea on the rims we want to go with. In the year 2015 Factory 47 went to Sturgis Black Hills Rally in South Dakota for the 75th anniversary. Along the way we met a great company who showed us the ropes and helped us out there, Shotgun Shocks. We felt a strong bond with them because they believe in the same values as us, great products manufactured in house. After the rally we stood close friends with JD and the crew not to mention they are only down the street from us. So it was a no brainier on deciding which system to use. Shotgun Shocks is famous for there awesome two switch system and has mastered airbags for Harley Davidson Softails. Thanks again to everyone at Shotgun Shocks for the awesome system and great customer service. Project vicla is one step closer. For more details on Shotgun click the link below. We also supplied a video on how the system works.
