That’s not the case anymore, as Exile’s affordable Twin Cam Softail customs pictured here definitely don’t look like something somebody put together in a garage, although they actually can put it together in a garage. Forget the torch, welder, and milling machine, these all-out-looking Exile doppelgangers consist of strictly bolt-on items. “It’s hard to even recognize that it is in affect a stock Harley,” said Russell. “We wanted to clean up everything, but maintain the functionality. Other than cutting the fender horns on the ’05 to get a 200 tire on, all three bikes are entirely a bolt-on proposition.” 

The fat 150mm tire Exile Monster front wheel bikes were Night Trains in a former life while an ’07 Softail Standard cashed in its chips on the way to looking Exile cool. Each bike had a round of Exile’s Softail parts strewn about them in a totally cohesive way, but totally different way. “I’ve been as stoked about these as any other bikes we’ve ever done,” said Russell. “Certainly the ’05 with an Exile gray paintjob thrown at it has got every bit of a slap in the face as one of our ground-up customs. It’s the best of both worlds.”

The Grip Ace handlebar setup, four-button switches stealthily-mounted in either the grips or on the bar itself, provides all you’ll need for turn signals, horn, hi/lo beams and are also programmed to provide two more circuits by holding down a pair for little things like a starter motor or whatever. Combine that with an Exile internal clutch and throttle and you’ve got the cleanest look possible. “Out of everything on there, that’s probably getting the most interest,” said Russell.
