Southside Customs is very pleased to present "Le Femme Fatale". Our answer to the many women who have told us they would love to have a custom motorcycle, but were not sure if the could handle it. Well ladies.. "We got ya covered!". This particular bike, "Tinkerbell" is the first of the series, and we are proud to say was the recipient of the "Best Of Show" award at "The Rat Hole" custom bike show that was held at Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
"Tink" was a very special construction for a very "special" customer. Dawn has been riding for a few years now and attended several rallies and bike shows. She had her heart set that she wanted to step up from her "883" to a custom, but because of her height, she was worried that she may not be able to ride one.
When it was all said and done, not only could she ride it, she had the room to spare! The bike came in at 435 pounds ready to go with a seat height of a mere 18 inches, and that's on a soft-tail frame. After 250 miles of riding, Dawn's only complaint was that she wanted to know if we could take some of the padding "out" of the seat because when she got on the throttle hard it wanted to slide her off the bike.
We aren't going to try to list off all of the specs on this particular bike because with any "custom" bike all things vary. We build each one with specs to suit the individual's needs and size. So ladies, here's your chance to have the custom you have dreamed about. One built especially for you. Designed for you not only for your particular body size and style, but also fit to your budget. Give us a call so we can set you up with the bike you've always wanted.
We would like to thank a few people that are "behind the scenes" who deserve a lot of credit. Thad Cooke, for his fantastic paint work, Matt Hutchinson, from the weld shop for his help in fabrication, Buff, for the real neat exhaust set he came up with, and the entire shop staff.
We invite you to stop by our shop and check us out. Talk to us about your thoughts and let us design your dream-ride. Our goal is clear: "Excellence is not an option, It's a requirement". No Hype, No Drama, No T.V Cameras, just cool rides for everyone to enjoy.View Gallery
