“This SoCal style Harley Davidson is one of sweetest custom motorcycles I’ve ever seen. The day I laid eyes on it I knew it was going to be part of the MS CLASSIC CARS collection. This is a must have piece for any car or motorcycle collector. Long live HD!” – Marc Schiliro
Known as “Chido”, this dazzling 2004 Harley Davidson Road King Custom is the ultimate street cruiser with its breathtaking appearance and performance upgrades. This motorcycle was purchased from the original owner with 6,558 miles in 2017 by Robert Kochanowski who lives in Blairstown, NJ. Rob had a vision to build one of the best custom Harley Davidson Road Kings on planet earth so he collaborated with Evan Favaro of Speak Easy Motors located in Fishkill, NY. Evan is well-known for his metal craftsmanship and time spent on the hit T.V. show “Orange County Choppers” from 2013-2017. Evan spent eight months on the build and brought Rob’s vision to life in the summer of 2017. Rob enjoyed riding and showing the motorcycle. It won “Best Bagger” at the Javits Center indoor show. It was featured in the January 2019 issue of “American Iron” magazine which is included. The original owner’s manual and Harley Davidson tool kit is also included. Rob added 1,024 miles after the build was completed. MS CLASSIC CARS purchased the motorcycle from Rob in May of 2023. This is the first time it’s been listed for sale.
This SoCal style motorcycle is absolutely stunning with its beautiful design and color combination. It’s total eye candy! Sheet metal was welded to the original tank and the seams were ground smooth so it was stretched to meet the custom Bad Dad side stretched covers. A set of flush mounted Harley Davidson filler caps were added to the tank. The custom Roland Sands Design stretched front fender was fabricated to fit with the custom Trask Performance chin spoiler. Custom Bad Dad stretched side bags and rear fender is not only longer but lower than the stock pieces. The rear fender was outfitted with a Bad Dad curved license plate with LED plate lights. The body pieces were taken to paint artist Bert Quimby of Flying Graphix located in Riverdale, NJ. Using a combination of Candy Pagan gold flake, Root Beer Candy, Gold Pearl, Yellow Pearl and gold leaf finished with a Frankenstein burnish, Bert laid down his masterpiece. The paint work is truly dazzlingly and was recently detailed to a show quality shine by the team at MS CLASSIC CARS. The paint is so nice it doesn’t look real! It’s equipped with 18” Ape Handlebars from Todd’s Cycle and custom handspun marbleized acrylic grips made by Ryan Gore of Paper Street Customs. Some of the accessories include Performance Machine mirrors, levers and hand controls, Primo Rivera LED headlight, Misfit Industries foot controls, Battistinis foot pegs, Plasma Rod LED taillights and MRI electrical center stand.
The original frame was powered coated by Prodigy Performance Coatings located in Fishkill, NY. It was outfitted with Dirty Air front and rear suspension. The custom compartment in the bottom of the left side bag was made to conceal the air tank so when the cover is open it’s not seen. The air ride operates very smoothly and is user friendly. The inside of the side bags were upholstered with custom fabric. This dream machine rides on custom Ride Wright “Fat Daddy” wheels that are 3.5”-21” on the front and 5.5”-16” on the rear. The wheels are wrapped with Metzler ME888 white wall tires that are 120-70-21 on the front and 180-90-16 on the rear. The GMA 4-piston front brake help slow this beast down.
The original 1450cc, 45 degree V-Twin OHV engine was sent to Frank Diehel of Blairstown Power-Sports located in Blairstown, NJ. The engine was rebuilt was a TC big bore which increased the size to 1550cc. The horsepower was increased from the factory rated 67HP to 95HP. Some of the engine specifications include 95” displacement, HD 1550 cylinder kit 3-7/8”, HD 1550 flattop 10.0:1 pistons, Screamin Eagle .204 camshaft, Screamin Eagle oil pump, BDL clutch and BDL primary drive. The ignition is from TTS Master Tune located in Compton, CA. The engine breathes through custom Samson long fish tail pipes. The engine runs and sounds excellent!
