This custom Harley-Davidson® Ultra Classic® custom motorcycle honors the men and women of the United States Army 11th Armored Cavalry. Known as the “Blackhorse Regiment,” the 11th Cavalry has served in every major conflict since its inception on February 2, 1901. The bike’s owner is a Vietnam combat veteran of the regiment who served as a scout from 1965-1967.
The bike’s left bag lid holds the names of his friends killed in action, along with the regiment’s insignia on the tank. The frame was stretched and raked and added a stretched rear fender and bags. Blackhorse employs an air ride system and center stand. The front 21″ contrast cut front wheel uses a single rotor dual-caliber brakes, and the bugle-style horn pays tribute to the Cavalry.
The 124 cubic inch boost engine of this Harley-Davidson® Ultra Classic® is highly modified and puts out over 255 horsepower. The engine will run on race fuel or pump gas, and it features a Trask Big Power Turbo Kit. One of the unique aspects of this build is that it was done after hours by veterans for a veteran.
