Built in 2008 by the renowned SPS (Special Parts Supply) company in the Netherlands, this unique Harley-Davidson-style custom took 2nd place in the world-famous S&S factory's 50th Anniversary competition. S&S Cycle is a motorcycle engine and parts manufacturer that was founded in 1958 by George J Smith and Stanley Stankos in Blue Island, Illinois, USA. The company started by selling replacement pushrods for Harley-Davidsons and went on to develop its own high-performance v-twin engines for the custom bike-building industry. S&S was the first motorcycle engine manufacturer to produce pre-certified United States Environmental Protection Agency compliant engines, thereby lifting the burden and cost of EPA testing from its customers. The company also produces TüV certified and California-specification engines. Based at Geertruidenberg, Netherlands, SPS builds beautiful, unique and exclusive Harley-Davidsons - both new builds and renovations - and also special, often handmade, custom parts for Harleys. This particular custom uses a 93ci (1,525cc) S&S 'Anniversary Edition' Shovelhead-type engine and Baker Torquebox six-speed transmission, which are mounted in a frame by Rolling Thunder/Special Parts Supply, the latter also being responsible for the special front end, wheels, brakes and the many hand-made parts. The motorcycle is completed with quality specialist paintwork to the highest standard and chromium plating to match. Already a legend in the custom bike-building world, this very special machine is not only a show-stopping display piece but comes fully working and ready for preparation for road registration if required. Accompanying paperwork includes an S&S Cycle Inc Certificate of Origin dated 2007.
