KEN'S' HARD CALL

Wild Supercharged FXR Bagger

by the KEN'S Factory Team
6/2/2017

It got its name as a supercharged hot rod bagger. The bags were made slim to cut through traffic and the frame is reminiscent of an FXR, a sport touring bike. So its a Hard Call on what to label it.

A bit of a styling exercise and design concept, Hard Call was put together in about a year. Just for strict Japanese DMV legalities, the bike does have a 2008 FLHX VIN so it can stay registered as an H-D. Nothing on this bike was left stock though.
Ken is a master machinist, designer and fabricator. Study every element of this bike and check out Ken's abilities first hand. His attention to detail is amazing. Although styling has shifted in slow economic years, there are still guys out there like Cory Ness and Ken who love to created something completely out of the box.
