Guildford Harley-Davidson's customs
Custom & modified bikes
29 March 2010 16:53
Guildford Harley Davidson might not be the first place you think of when it comes to one-off custom built Harleys but sales manager Mike Noble and team at the Surrey based dealer are hoping these two newly built modified fat boys could change that.
The blue and silver modded Fat Boy special belongs to David Ranson whose passion for Harleys was fuelled when his wife organised a Fat Boy rental for him.
Noble explains: "David enjoyed the bike so much it spurred him into buying one. Originally he just wanted a standard bike with a louder pipe but when we sat down and started talking it just spiralled, we both threw in a ton of ideas."

The second machine was built for Engineer and Harley nut Mark Knight. The inspiration came from the style of bikes that US based Exile cycles are building.
Noble explained, "Being an engineer Mark was keen to be completely involved in every process of the build. The pipes, seat and rear fender are all hand built items.
"All our custom painting is done by Altamura Concepts of Camberley. Altamura make a computer image of the bike before painting to ensure the customer knows exactly what the finished bike will look like."
