The bike isn’t flashy or colorful but it looks clean and simple. Dynamoto has a supermoto style to it; this one would appeal to the Harley riders that want more. So thinking along the lines of minimalism and styling to the point, we stripped a stock 2000 FXDX down to the frame and motor. We threw out all the tins, the stock front end, bars and controls, wheels, brakes… all the crap that sucked. Basically everything except the frame motor and trany. We even scrapped the heavy closed wet primary. The only mods to the frame: cut off the battery box mounts, the electrics box on the left side and trim the rear fender horns down to less than half their stock length. Everything else we built custom, the way it’s supposed to be.
Nicks Dyna is all about function with good looks, a Harley the way we build them.
The raw metal bronze finish of the frame will change, darken and naturally patina with life. The raw aluminum sheet metal will take on different shades as it oxidizes and the owner re-cleans and re-polishes it. The weld joints in the stainless parts will change color with time. Dirt and oil will find its way in and live in those hard to clean places. Achuma was built with the intention that age would set in. That the battle scars of real road use would take their place and give spirit to the machine. Achuma will never be the same, always slightly changing. The key is that with these changes the owner holds an experience and memory. It is why someone has Kraus Motor Co. build them a machine like Achuma. Just for the experience.
A classic feeling, but aggressive and full of performance. Vintage styling but with modern engineering and high performance products. Light but solid and strong Achuma is ultra maneuverable, with a lot of suspension.
Everything starts with the chassis. From forward and rear weight distribution to suspension and braking behavior. The ridability of the motorcycle depends on the combination of the rigid members and the moving parts. The chassis takes the work of the drivetrain, suspension, and brakes and translates it to controllable forward movement. If this system is not adequately engineered then it will not perform the way it should or worse it will brake down. In contrast, when engineered properly, the chassis will supply the proper framework for a machine that can perform and be trusted by its pilot. The rear suspension on Bolide uses an uncommon design for an American v-twin drivetrain based bike. The mono shock swingarm is a well proven system but is not often used because of the configuration of the transmission, oil bag and swingarm pivot position
Designed in the spirit of Tourist Trophy. Engineered and built as a complete road ready and high performance machine. Bolide has a classic look, top of the line performance components, and a raw metal finish. It has everything you need and nothing you don’t.
