Johnny Cash tribute motorcycle by Roland Sands

Johnny Cash tribute motorcycle
We stumbled across this one on Roland Sands’ blog, and had to show it straight away—even if it means running two Harley bikes in a row. (Let us know in the comments if that’s too much.)

Get Rhythm‘ is based on a lowered 2004 Harley-Davidson FXSTB Night Train, which was an 88-ci Softail derivative aimed at the European market. The bike was built by UK dealer Shaw Harley-Davidson and includes a whole raft of Performance Machine parts, including wheels, mid-mount controls, master cylinders and switchgear.

Get Rhythm is also rockin’ a PM ‘Phatail’—a bolt-on kit that allows an 18×8.5 wheel to rest comfortably in a stock H-D Softail frame. It probably doesn’t do much for the handling, but it looks good. The vintage-style seat and gas tank are from RSD, and the paint is from Image Design.

I’m not sure about you, but I think the overall effect is terrific—and yet another direction that Harley management could look at to broaden the appeal of their range. [Incidentally, if you’re a fan of the Man In Black, head over to the sublime Selvedge Yard for a photo essay on Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison.]
