We read a variation of something like this somewhere amongst our travels and felt like it would apply for the Lowrider Lifestyle many live, ride and breathe. We recently updated our Softail with a slew of parts that is now available to help get you that Lowrider look you have been chasing.
We started out with a set of our tall California Chrome 18″ 1.25″ diameter (swedged back down to 1″ for clamp and hand control area) Gorilla Apes Hangers. Coupled with a set of our Extended Cable Kit in our new Stainless finish. The only thing left to do was to throw one of our Slammer Kit on and see how she sits. Next was to get a set of Fishtails, a killer spoked wheel set from the folks at Ride Wright Wheels. The final touches were put on by Casey at Headkase Kustom Art. We’d like to think he nailed the look we were after on the button. What do you think?
Available in late March of 2016! Based off the aesthetic of our original MX-Style pegs, we now offer MX-Style Floor Boards for HD Touring models! They are made of steel with just the right amount of serration to keep your feet planted. TIG welded for strength and powder coated Satin Black to blend nicely with your bike.
The rider boards bolt right on 1984-2016 FL Touring models, 1984-2015 FLST/FLS and 2012-2016 FLD models. The matching passenger floorboards fit 1993-2016 FLH/T models with stock passenger floorboard mounts.
MSRP is $179.95 for Passenger and $199.95 for Rider
We’ve had our Cafe Tail Section in the market for a while and primarily only see them on Cafe inspired bikes. We were messing around with some parts at the shop and discovered that the Slammer Shocks work with the Cafe Tail Section without any rubbing or issues. Immediately we started to throw other parts at it and came up with a half Cafe half we don’t know what. We hope you enjoy!
We met up with Mark (the founder of Rusty Butcher) out on his secret proving grounds for a fun day in the dirt. We didn’t know what to expect but guessed we’d probably see him huck his Sportster in the sky a few dozen times. Well we were not disappointed, he threw that thing into the air more times than we could count. He uses our Stiletto Shocks, MX Pegs, Fork Preload Adjusters, Seat and Bars.
We were back out at the Costa Mesa Speedway last month for Harley Night again. All of us “cool guys” ran our Harleys in our own Hooligan class and like always had a ton of fun! Roland Sands, Troy Hoff, Jason Klements, Ed Subias and myself! Here are some photos from the event.
If you haven’t made it out to your local track to see Flat Track racing in person you are missing out. If you have the opportunity to check out a Harley night or a run what you brung night at a Flat Track we suggest you do so at least once in your life!
The Born Free Show is on its 7th consecutive year and it was bigger and badder than ever! That being said we stepped our game up with 10 plus bikes and a bigger booth/footprint. We invited an Elvis impersonator to hang in the booth to help out with promo items, like our “Take One Or Make One Baby” (in Elvis’ voice) button machine offering as well as our “Shirt for a Shirt” giveaway we do every year. Elvis also serenaded the booth with his Top Hit hits so you know we were having a good time! We brought and displayed a few Sportsters, the Burly Brand Bagger, our Lowrider Softail, a couple Dyna’s and even had a couple FXR’s from our buddies at Straight Up. We also debuted our Stiletto Shocks for Dyna applications on our newest BB build coined the name “Snowman Dyna” taken from the Smokey and the Bandit movie. All in all the crowd seemed to love all the bikes and had a great time hanging with Elvis. We are already brain storming ideas to top this years event, stay tuned!
Of course we (Thomas and I) had to rip our Sportster on the track. With this being Thomas’ second time on the track with his Sportster he did very well! We were neck and neck throughout the whole race. Go jail-stripes!!
All in all it was a very eventful evening. The Oxley Fam sure knows how to put on a show! For more info on Harley Night and Costa Mesa Speedway check the link here.

Biltwell’s semi-annual Mexican motorcycle adventure from Temecula, CA, to San Felipe and Ensenada, Baja Mexico. May 28-31, 2015. This year the El Diablo Run was blast. We rode, we drank we raced! Not as much as some but just enough to enjoy the time away with friends. A few hundred of us motorcycles geeks rode down to make the trek to San Felipe, MX. We spent a couple nights at the palapas in San Felipe along with the other 400-500 riders. There were awesome events planned from the Biltwell crew such as the Circle Of Death, Slow Races and other shenanigans we won’t mention. From San Felipe we rode to Ensenada for another two nights. With plenty of great taco spots and the lobsters in Puerto Nuevo there was no shortage of good grub!

Giddy Up Vintage Chopper Show is a custom motorcycle show with held in the Austin, Texas area. Nestled in the hills of New Braunfels, TX at a local Ice House the event definitely takes cues from the surrounding environment that doesn’t have you feelin’ like you are at a bike show. Lots of cool places to layout/chill and have a cold beer. Most of the locals camped out at the nearby campground and cruised back and forth throughout the day. Made the event not feel so crowded and also gave people a place to escape from the hot son if needed.
This year they raffled off a 1969 Harley Chopper and a panhead motor! It was the 2nd year of the event and our first to attend. Glad we made it out to see what the fuss was all about. We’ll be there next year for more shenanigans and good times.
We were out in Texas for the Giddy Up Show (more on the next post) and attended the pre-party at the Austin Speed Shop in Austin. It was our first time at the shop and was stoked to see the detail that went into the setup. The shop features as a custom car and fab facility with a gift shop. It’s a cool place to bring the family, as they can see vehicles being turned into works of art. There are plenty of huge plate windows to look through while you shop for goodies like shirts and hats etc.
The Hell On Wheels Stadium Steeplechase was last Saturday March 21st at the Glen Helen Raceway or Gelen Helen as they typo-ed in the flyer and screamed about the pits by our buddy Mark from Rusty Butcher. Gelen Helen, Gelen Helen dog… Where’s my Starbucks soy frappuccino?! Anyway they held the event on the Trophy Truck Track. Boasting sweeping turns, tabletops and wide open action. Or more like dust bowl and sandy washes whatever you want to call it. The event was still lots of fun as we always make the best out of it and like to give Hayden and Mr. Ball a hard time.
We even managed to drag out the “new guy” Paul. It was his first time on a dirt bike in over 15 years. Took a while to get the ol’ 2 stroker running but once we did we couldn’t get him off that thing. Good times for sure!

We made it back up to Portland for The 1 Moto Show 2015. Portland is a great city with lots of awesome places to eat and hang with friends. This year the event was held in a old naval manufacturing plant from back in the day. Complete with a Steam Hammer this place screamed industrial and made for a great addition to all the high quality bike builds.
We were invited to bring the Jackrabbit Scrambler to the show and of course had to get her dirty with some local Portland mud. Found an open field behind the hotel and ripped her up proper! Rode across the Burnside bridge and thru the town straight to the show.
