Custom bike builder Billy Lane was sentenced to six years in prison and three years probation for his part in a Sept. 4, 2006 accident that killed Gerald Morelock.  Lane, 39, will also have his driver’s license suspended for life for the crash on State Road A1A south of Melbourne Beach, Fla. A toxicology test showed that Lane’s blood-alcohol content was 0.192 percent, more than twice the state’s legal limit of 0.08 percent when he crossed over a double-yellow line to pass several cars and crashed head-on into Morelock.

Klock Werks rides with Kiwi Indian in joint venture

Kiwi Indian and Klock Werks Kustom Cycles have formed a joint venture to help move both companies forward. Mike Tomas of Kiwi Indian has already moved his parts distribution from California to Mitchell, SD. Said Mike, "Brian and I are close friends who share the same work ethic and long-term vision about the future of our respective businesses." Kiwi’s service/repair work, restorations, manufacturing, and new bike building will remain in California for now.

“This is a project Mike, my wife Laura and I have talked about for three years, so in light of the economy, yes it’s a good move. But more so there’s an interest in working more efficiently for both entities and a desire to be gentlemen of the industry,” said Brian. “I have long held Mike and (his wife) Carolyn in high regard for their upstanding moral outlook on business; thus Laura, I and our team are proud to be associated with them.”

Both Klock and Kiwi have participated in TV build-offs and continue to garner their share of magazine coverage. There is a mutual respect between these builders and a desire to share designs and concepts in an effort to keep innovating.

Klock stated that financially both companies are fortunately strong. The venture makes Kiwi’s parts line more centrally located to more easily reach many industry events and provide access to parts distribution routes. “One warehouse, better shipping contracts, and improved customer service are all goals we hope for,” Brian said. “Yes, growth and change are difficult in any setting, let alone a down economy. Our families and teams have prayed for guidance and thought the time was right. We all are smiling about this new venture and look forward to the challenges ahead. The camaraderie that is motorcycling lives on!”

If you are in Riverside, California, stop by and visit Kiwi Indian at 4183 Fairgrounds Street, or if you happen to be headed east toward I-90 for Sturgis, stop off in the Corn Palace city and see the new setup, just off exit 332 in Mitchell, SD.

S&S Cycle reduces prices to help bikers in tough economic climate

S&S Cycle announces a reduction in price for two of their premium products, the S&S high performance clutch, and the S&S single bore tuned induction kits.

“We know these are both excellent products, and that they are superior to just about anything on the market. We believe this price reduction will allow more customers to see just how good they really are.” Said Director of Business Development and Sales, Michael Scaletta. “S&S Cycle has always been known for big, powerful engines, but people just don’t think of us for clutches . . .Yet.”

The S&S high performance clutch features 10 steel plates and 11 friction plates to increase the number of friction surfaces available. The S&S clutch comes with a spring set that allows the clutch to handle up to 140 horsepower, with clutch lever pull that is equivalent to stock. Stronger springs are available for applications up to 200 horsepower. The S&S clutch is available for 1991-’06 big twins, except 2006 Dyna® models. The suggested retail price for these clutches has been reduced by a whopping $200.00. MSRP for the mechanically actuated versions was $899.95, but they are now priced at $699.95. The hydraulically actuated versions were $949.95 MSRP, and are now $749.95.

S&S single bore tuned induction kits have also been reduced in price so that MSRP on a complete system is under $500.00. Some applications are as low as $385.00. In addition, ordering has been simplified with a single part number. Customers simply specify model and year of the motorcycle, the preferred finish of the intake runners, and the desired color of the filters. Not only does the aggressive styling of the tuned induction kits look great, the tuned induction improves performance across the rpm range, with a real boost in the midrange.

Director of Product management Charlie Hadayia Jr. had this to say “The classic teardrop air cleaner has been and image associated with S&S Cycle since 1975, but the S&S tuned induction kits look so good and perform so well, that they may become another classic S&S image in time. We’re sure that the new lower price for the S&S tuned runner and the S&S clutch will encourage customers to give them a try!”

Is it still a motorcycle when one bike fits 10 riders?
