In Rick’s Motorcycles’ metal workshop many different chassis parts are manufactured for all Harley-Davidson models, including the fenders for the Dyna models. The rear fender not only perfectly fits the 200 tire used here, but is also very stable and can withstand burdens like a heavier passenger or luggage. The small front fender was also created in the workshop of Rick’s Motorcycles, and because this part is not exposed to any weight, it could be made from glass fiber reinforced material.
A further highlight on this Dyna are probably the wheels, which are also made by Rick’s in Baden-Baden and are called “Apollo 5”. They consist of three parts, are black anodized and screwed together, and it is no coincidence that the stainless steel brake discs match the Apollo 5 wheel design, which are also made by Rick’s, as well as the air filter. Like many other Rick’s parts, these are also supplied with TÜV.
The handlebar is also from Rick’s Motorcycles’ product range, as are the “Good Guys” grips, the side licence plate holder, the transparent clutch cover, the foot controls and many more parts. The indicators at the rear are from Rizoma and at the front from Kellermann.
A complete and adjustable Kesstech exhaust system ensures a great sound, and with a new air filter and a new exhaust, the mapping needed to be adjusted. In this case the Harley-Davidson Screamin’ Eagle Super Tuner is being used, which was perfectly optimized on the Dynojet test bench at Rick’s Motorcycles.
This only leaves us to clarify the unusual name of this bike. “Hommies” are friends, and this fine Dyna was made for a personal friend of the house, who enjoyed it for a long time, so at Rick’s Motorcycles they do not only miss the Dyna models in the Company’s model range…
