Curaçao Twin Cam Bobber
Rick’s Bobber fenders are now offered for all Milwaukee-Eight Softail and Sportster models, and the advantages of these bolt-on parts are numerous. These wheel covers can be attached without much effort and have an excellent fit. Now these fenders are also available for Twin Cam Softails in a large selection.
Twin Cam Softails are no longer built by Harley-Davidson, but there are still many on the road, which is reason enough for the customizers from Baden-Baden to continue developing some parts for these models.
The swingarm mounted Bobber fenders for Twin Cam Softails are available in different versions, a long one with additional struts and a short one. Both versions are available in a slim style for the 150 tire and optionally in a wide version for 200 size tires.
If you want to convert your Softail into a Bobber, the problem is that the frame between oil tank and seat is exposed, but also for this Rick’s offers a solution. Rick’s frame covers for solo seats are made from steel and powder-coated and they are made so that most aftermarket seats will fit. On the Curaçao the leather seat is made for Rick’s by Spirit Leather, which matches the total Bobber look perfectly.
The front fender is also “Made by Rick’s” and offered for many Softails in different designs, lengths and widths. Rick’s grips and air filter “Spoke Black” complete the list of Rick’s parts that were used.
A last look should go to the indicators, and the decision to use Kellermann indicators was an easy one. The specialists from Aachen offer with the model “Atto” the smallest LED indicator with a European ABE certificate and the necessary E-test mark for road legal use. At the front these are simply attached with Rick’s indicator holder to the mirror screw. On the long fender the 3-in-1 indicator, rear light and brake light combination can be attached at the holes in the struts. On the short version it was decided to mount these in the frame directly above the swingarm sickle.
The here shown Curaçao stands on a 150 rear wheel, but we look forward to show you the first Twin Cam Softail also with a 200 tire.
