2008 SPS 'Harley-Davidson' 93ci Speed Demon Custom
Built in 2008 by the renowned SPS (Special Parts Supply) company in the Netherlands, this unique Harley-Davidson-style custom took 2nd place in the world-famous S&S factory's 50th Anniversary competition. S&S Cycle is a motorcycle engine and parts manufacturer that was founded in 1958 by George J Smith and Stanley Stankos in Blue Island, Illinois, USA. The company started by selling replacement pushrods for Harley-Davidsons and went on to develop its own high-performance v-twin engines for the custom bike-building industry. S&S was the first motorcycle engine manufacturer to produce pre-certified United States Environmental Protection Agency compliant engines, thereby lifting the burden and cost of EPA testing from its customers. The company also produces TüV certified and California-specification engines. Based at Geertruidenberg, Netherlands, SPS builds beautiful, unique and exclusive Harley-Davidsons - both new builds and renovations - and also special, often handmade, custom parts for Harleys. This particular custom uses a 93ci (1,525cc) S&S 'Anniversary Edition' Shovelhead-type engine and Baker Torquebox six-speed transmission, which are mounted in a frame by Rolling Thunder/Special Parts Supply, the latter also being responsible for the special front end, wheels, brakes and the many hand-made parts. The motorcycle is completed with quality specialist paintwork to the highest standard and chromium plating to match. Already a legend in the custom bike-building world, this very special machine is not only a show-stopping display piece but comes fully working and ready for preparation for road registration if required. Accompanying paperwork includes an S&S Cycle Inc Certificate of Origin dated 2007.

    Speed Demon Custom 2008

    Construite en 2008 par la réputée firme SOS (Special Parts Supply) aux Pays-Bas, cette unique Harley-Davidson customisée a pris la deuxième place au concours du 50e anniversaire de l'usine S&S. S&S Cycle est un constructeur de moteurs et de pièces de motos fondé en 1958 par George J. Smith et Stanley Stankos à Blue Island (Illinois, USA). La société a commencé par commercialiser des tiges de culbuteurs pour les Harley-Davidson avant de développer ses propres moteurs V-twin à hautes performances pour l'industrie du custom motocycliste. S&S fut le premier constructeur de moteurs de moto à produire des groupes pré-certifiés conformes aux normes antipollution de l'Agence américaine pour la Protection de l'Environnement (EPA), enlevant ainsi à ses clients le charge et le coût des tests EPA. La société produit aussi des moteurs certifiés TüV et aux normes californiennes. Basée à Geertruidenberg aux Pays-Bas, SPS construit de superbes, uniques et exclusives Harley-Davidson – neuves ou reconstruites - ainsi que des pièces custom spéciales pour Harley réalisées souvent manuellement. Cette moto customisée utilise un moteur type Shovelhead de 1 525 cm3 S&S « Anniversary Edition » et une boîte de vitesses Baker Torquebox à six rapports, installés dans une partie cycle de RollingThinder/Special Parts Supply, cette dernière firme étant responsable de la partie avant spéciale, des roues, des freins et de nombreuses pièces réalisées artisanalement. La moto est complétée d'une peinture de haute qualité réalisée par un spécialiste et ornée de pièces chromées assorties. Déjà légendaire dans l'univers de la moto customisée, cette machine très spéciale est non seulement une pièce d'exposition très attirante, mais elle fonctionne parfaitement, prête à être préparée si nécessaire pour l'immatriculation. Les documents qui l'accompagnent comprennent un Certificat d'origine de S&S Cycle Inc. daté de 2007.
