Got a note from Jason Wonder about his just completed Revolution-1 custom based around a V-Rod engine. It’s looks lighter and is lighter than a standard V-Rod, coming in at 460 pounds wet. The custom hardtail frame mounts a suspended seat at 28 1/2 inches on a 67 inch wheelbase.
The engine is basically stock except he added velocity stacks and a big external fuel pump. The shorty pipes are temporary, he’s building a set of titanium pipes to take their place.
Most of the V-Rods I’ve seen have just been variations of the stock bike, this one takes the engine and builds on that. It looks pretty clean. I would prefer mid controls but the pipes, as is, might be an issue with that placement.
Jason is already at work on Revolution-2 for the AMD Championship in August and is planning a series of 10 Revolution customs.
I know quite a few readers of The Kneeslider like the V-Rod, the engine itself has a lot of potential and it’s nice to see someone using it in a custom build. The V-Rod engine in a 460 pound bike should make for an interesting ride. Nice work.
