SOA bike! Spy photo! Over at Illusion Cycle.


  1. I sure hope that Rusty is charging extra for the gayness factor of the SOA bike or is he building them for FX? Not a fan of the show, generalization of the concept is good but the effect its having on the dew rag bro's is the greatest! When I heard word that Sonny Barger was working on a show with HBO I had hope, then saw this miss guided broathon & just shook my head! Sorry I'll get off my soapbox!

  2. Yes, it's for the show. Actually I like the show and it's mediocre acting (so do a lot of my friends).

    Like in a way how I appreciate watching Dusk Til Dawn over and over.

    But I don't think the show has any effect on us whatsoever hahahahaha. Its just interesting since we know a lot about what goes on behind the scenes I guess.

  3. Sorry Nelson didn't mean to come across as a dick, I ment the effect the show is having on the bike night crowds ya know the ones wearing the wolf shirt & dew rag! And everyone jumping on the fxr bandwaggon, which has jacked the price up! At least up here in the NW!

  4. No need for apologies, I didn't think you were pointing in my general direction either.

    And I totally agree, yes. There's been a huge influence from that show on the mainstream market. My sales rep at Arlen Ness says they're selling a ton of those fairings for Dyna and FXR. I'm sure a lot more of the H-D dealers are selling the OEM accessory fairings too.

    Also more young people are into FXR's now, yes, but I've personally been seeing more Dyna guys lately here. I think for the most part, Dyna's are #1. Most guys are too chicken to buy an "old Evo". It's been interesting to watch. I personally get a LOT of FXR questions via email in the last few months from all over, which I don't mind so much.

    SOA: funny thing is the only person on that entire show with an FXR is DL aka "Happy". And he's hardly EEEEEVER shown riding it.

    Kurt Sutter is currently having a custom FXR built by Illusion. Oh, did I just say that?

  5. I like this bike,
    but my taste is iffy. I like the show too.
    and when it is all over.
    There will be a shitload of S+S, Thunderheader, tweaked up harleys going for cheap.
    And wolf shirts and doo-rags.
