That things awesome!

I may be a little biased, but it seems ta me that any bike can be made to look great but wouldn't it be that much better with the Raider as the canvas? :-\

I agree.  Considering the Vulcan doesn't have near the rake to start with, the Raider would just be partially there. I saw a Roadstar at a local bike event and basically everything the guy did to it were things the Raider started out with. I was thinking "Just think how much money you could've saved had you started with the Raider".

I'm not a fan of most stock HDs, but I've seen some absolutely gorgeous custom ones.

You can see what looks like a dog bone and shock in the photo probably has air ride.

You are right, if I look at the frame, I can see that.
But, I cannot understand where is the rear wheel travel.

I see what you mean, looks like the rear fender doesn't have any travel left.  He probably let all the air out and lowered it to the max for the photo shoot.

I used to own a Vulcan 800, which is what that bike is I'm pretty sure, might be a 900, can't tell, too many custom parts!  They actually have a lot of rake.  Not as much as a Raider, but not too far off.  The engine isn't nearly as powerful, but they're still pretty quick since they weight almost 200 lbs less.

Very nice looking bike.  The front end looks amazing.
260 Rear Tire, Freedom Curves exhaust, DIY BAK, DIY integrated turn signals, DIY sidemount plate.  More to come.

I actually know that guy (Andres) and hes made me a couple things for the bagger build Im doing.  He actually did that build a while back.  It turned out awesome!  We were talking the other day and hes going to be working on a Raider next.  Stay tuned cause it will make the magazines again!  His brother owns Tricky Air which is Arnie.  Pretty nice guy.

Who is that guy? i want to know who made his exhaust...really want to know who made/designed that exhaust...

Apparently they swap their pictures out with each new issue and use the same names for the pics. The ones showing on the first page are not the correct one and I can no longer find it on their site now that they're showing the December issue.

Sorry.

Think I finally found it after you gave me the  November issue clue (I shoulda been able to figure that out but ...duh).  I think this is the critter and if not it's a bad bike still.

That explains it. I was wondering how the photos got swapped out.

Well the bike exhaust was a one off design, from Andres and I think another guy.  Cant remember the exact details that he told me.

So it's somewhat similar to one other bike. That's not so bad.  It'll still look sharp.
