uu degrees of rake at the neck and adding 3 inches to the framerails behind the transmission, giving more room for the air compressor and battery.

Using the same steel tube materials, a custom frontend that is only 18 inches in length was also fabricated. J.R. wanted to have the look of a Springer-style frontend, and he also wanted an air-ride feel. So he came up with the idea to create a dual air-shock setup with a mono shock in the center for rebound. J.R. called on Platinum Air Suspension for a set of its Road King air rams, and then he created a bracket to house the two shocks on the frontend. Next, J.R. routed the air line back to the compressor. To ensure that the shock wouldn't float as he was riding, he added a small mono shock to control the rebound J.R.
