Default Travertson V Rex - The mother of all Bikes!



Pictured above is the TRAVERTSON V REX. This beast is manufacured in Florida and is a PRODUCTION MOTORCYLE (not a concept). It is the handiwork of an Australian designer Tim Cameron and Custom motorcyle builder Christian Travert (who has the Y2K JET bike to his credit).

The V REX are designed, created and assembled in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and are sold primarily to a network of Harley-Davidson® Dealerships as well as renown custom motorcycle shops throughout the United States. It utilizes genuine Harley-Davidson® parts including the VROD motor, the speedometer, the transmission, harnesses and wiring as well as the switches.
MSRP is 40,000 USD.
Am really trying very hard to get one of my clients to get one. Almost got him convinced. Keep your fingers crossed.

S600BENZ, you must also try HARDER to convince your clients to get such beau's out on roads too. Its a pity that most keep these indoors in their bedrooms and ooogle at them all day and night. Happens all the time here in Bangalore atleast.

@Irfanmon. Dude what you are seeing is the production version. There are no changes to this design. And Harley does not have anything to do with the design. The manufacturers are just using Harley components for this one off Bike.

Default Which bike is this?

Hey guys, I was watching the movie Fast & Furious (2009) for like the 10th or 12th time and this bike caught my eye!!

Name:  FF Chopper.jpg
Views: 16659
Size:  211.3 KB

Which brand is this? Or is it a custom built bike/chopper?

Anyway it looks super DEVILish!! Love the Headlamp assembly. Has any one got the specs for this bike?

I would just love to feel that engine rev beneath my c****h!!

Looks of these beasts are menacing, like it can transform anytime into an evil decepticon and destroy the earth! It has the heart and related mechanicals (electronics?) completely based on the Harley V-Rod.

I generally do not visit the bike threads, but the title arose curiosity

I also have to admit that I am a big fan of SBKs.

Coming to the point, this really looks deadly for a bike and I seem to have missed this during the movie (busy looking at the cars I guess). Let me watch it one more time to spot it
