The Preacher

Sinner or Saint? A little bit of both are at the heart of this build. Like a gun-toting, cigarette-smoking, bourbon-swilling Man of the Lord. Don’t piss him off – he’ll knock out your teeth before praying for your soul.

Our first hardtail Street 500 “Copperhead” proved incredibly popular, and it wasn’t long before we were approached to build another, this time with more modern styling and appeal.

As I Walk Through the Valley…

“Everything I own is Black or White” states the client. Black & White it is then. We couldn’t just opt for a flat white either. This bike had to pop.

Big. Wheels. These monsters were sourced by the good lads at Rollies Speed Shop, and although they cost a pretty penny were definitely a worthwhile investment. 21″ on the front, 18″ on the rear, and wrapped in Avon Cobra rubber.
