XR5000

Mountaniview

Model :FATBOB Category :DIRT

What is the “Name” of the BOTK bike?

XR5000

 

Which stock H-D model have you chosen for this year’s BOTK and from which platform?

2018    FatBob   114

 

Which bike build category did you choose and why?

We went with the dirt category and felt the FatBob was the only choice. We started off by visualizing the bike lifted and aggressive. But yet needed the functionality of when you take it to the dirt. By doing this we knew it would be unique like no other.   

 

Did anything or anyone provide inspiration for the design? 

We started looking at it and hashed out ideas which led to this design.

 

What significant changes have you made e.g. frame chassis modification, wheel change, and different tank?

1. Chopped rear fender, raised front fender.

2. Utilized Dominion collection

3. Modified exhaust to give more clearance and style.

4. T bars for an upright riding position.

5. Number plate with an integrated LED light to light up the night.

6. Custom seat with color-matched stitching.

7. Mid-mount controls for better dirt control and very unique to this build.

8. Hand cut knobby tires for better dirt control and aggressive look.

9. Custom HD air cleaner modified for dirt application.

10. Screamin Eagle plug wires.

 

What is your view is the most special part/change about/to the bike?

The exhaust is a hit, we also felt going with the different air filter really brought the look together.

 

Are there any build details/changes that need to be mentioned to appreciate?

The tech has hand cut more grooves in the tire giving it the more aggressive look.  The fender was cut underneath to give it a more lifted look. As well we put a rear shock extension in to give it a lift as well.
