Shreveport Slammer

Perhaps our penultimate XV920R, this all-business little muscle bike will call Shreveport, Louisiana home. Built for custom 4×4 guru Wes Malmay, the 1982 chain drive XV features a first for us — a stock swing arm fitted with a 1990s CB750 Nighthawk rear wheel. In my opinion the stock XV rear wheel is not fit for human eyes, but Wes didn’t want to go full-on Level 4, so we found a nice compromise. The Nighthawk wheel matches the R6 wheel up front and, as mods go, wasn’t overly difficult. Dani fabled up a nice clean exhaust which we nickel plated and mated to a stainless muffler. I had the pleasure of delivering it to Mr. Malmay on the way home from The Handbuilt Motorcycle Show in Austin, Texas. Nice way to wrap up the trip.
