The unique motorcycle offered here is the work of Arlen Ness, a craftsman whose name has for years been synonymous with the very best of American custom bike building. Based in California, Ness first gained recognition for his unique painting style and went on to build a succession of sensational motorcycle customs that were displayed at shows and featured in magazines. Many of Ness’s amazing creations are displayed in the museum at his company’s headquarters in Dublin, California where it manufactures custom parts for Harley-Davidson and Victory motorcycles.
Sold new from the Arlen Ness stand at the 2004 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.The motorcycle was first registered in the UK on 1st April 2014. Noteworthy features include an Arlen Ness Y2K frame; special paintwork by Ness’s friend, the late Jeff McCann; custom seat by Danny Gray;
According to the previous owner this was one of the last bikes Arlen Ness built personally. Now apparently his son has a show on Discovery channel. These guys were building bikes long before the TV show craze that is OCC etc. and this bike would be an amazing investment for any collector.
Progressive Suspension shock absorbers; an 18″x9.5″ rear wheel; disc brakes; belt final drive; and numerous other special Arlen Ness components. Manufactured in Connecticut, USA, the engine is a TP Pro-Series displacing 2,036cc and featuring TP’s distinctive ‘polished diamond’ finish to the cooling fins.
When the build was completed, Arlen Ness signed the rear fender beneath the seat.
Only some 3958 miles have been covered since the machine’s construction and it remains in generally excellent condition. A guaranteed head-turner and potential award winner at custom motorcycle shows, this unique Arlen Ness Low Liner is offered with 1 years M.O.T & V5C registration document.
Everything works as it should. It sounds amazing and rides amazing.
This is a sparkling beauty. It is 14 years old and does have the odd mark here & there(pipes need re-chroming. A few bits of chrome may need redoing but to be honest it can be left as is and does nothing to detract from the amazing lines & look of this bike.
Any questions please ask
This is obviously a one-off custom built very special bike with many features – some I’ve probably missed!
