Coming from: Von Dutch

"Von Dutch, aka Kenneth Howard, was a California legend in the heart of custom bikes and hot rod cars during the 40's and 50's. He helped re-define the custom culture movement that is experiencing a strong resurgence today. Von Dutch is the original innovator of free hand pinstriping. Von Dutch Kustom Cycles is a licensed motorcycle manufacturer of American V-twin Choppers, Diggers, Cruisers and Accessories. The motorcycle designs are the result of creative expression, extensive product development and solid state components. The bound suppliers utilized for the makeup of every unit are the most reputable of names in the industry. The results are a measured outcome of disciplined manufacturing processes focused upon the expertise of hand craftsmanship with one thing in mind, quality."
Killer B (read more) and Flying Dutchman (read more)are still my personal favorites coming from Von Dutch:

"The Killer ‘B’ Softail Bobber series features hand-crafted and carved, kangaroo-laced leather accents on the seat, mirror, grips, lower controls, floorboards, triple lighting, electrical satchel, and removable gear bag. However, the 20 Killer ‘B’ Softail Bobbers available are also ready to take to the road, with a proprietary diamond chassis, Patrick Racing Billett Motor, Primo Rivera Complete Driveline and Brembo braking system. This series uniquely defines the essence of simplicity and originality in a prolific sense. This bobjob is distinct from the coloration and pinstriping throughout the entire machine, right down to the ruthless hand crafted and carved, kangaroo laced leather accents from triple lighting / mirror / grips / lower controls / floorboards / seat / electrical satchel and removable gear bag. Never less, this model is made for the road, with its Patrick Racing Billet Motor, Primo Rivera Complete Driveline Brembp Braking system all integrated in this proprietary diamond chassis."

"The Flying Dutchman sports a Patrick Racing Billet Show Polished Motor that has 113 c.i, compression relief’s, and round barrels. It is dynamically balanced and emissions approved.The exhaust is Kicked Trumpets ceramic coated and heat wrapped. Primo Rivera parts are used on the Flying Dutchman for the primary drive (open 3" belt drive), clutch, and transmission (6-speed chrome). The Flying Dutman’s rake is 38 degrees, and the trail is 3.625. Suggested retail price is $36,900 and there is a limited quantity available, so contact your local dealer to test drive one today."
