    In the fall of 2009 George Smith Jr. (then interim President of S&S Cycle) wanted a new custom motorcycle to showcase the company's X-Wedge engine and XW-R Transmission. He called me (Doug) requesting a meeting. The bike featured here is the result of that meeting.

    The consensus between S&S team Scott Sjovall, Jeff Bailey and I was to start with a Genuine FXR chassis, stretch it for the required 2" to accommodate the X-Wedge powerplant and to use as many Genuine Harley components possible during the customization process. The objective was to create a motorcycle looking custom at 1st glance, requiring a reasonable budget by our economic times standard, and of course a motorcycle that can be titled and insured.

    I started with a 1992 chassis, sent it to Rolling Thunder Frames for the modifications.  The custom frame masters cut the FXR frame, modified the front section for the X-Wedge motor and S&S rubber mounted XWR transmission and built a 2 ” stretched swingarm. Works Performance adjustable shocks are used for a comfortable ride. I used lightweight Genuine Harley cast aluminum wheels, stock sheetmetal and brakes, modifying and massaging those and many other stock components to save a chunk of money. Exhaust is made of a Bassani muffler with primary pipes built by me.


    One of the most unique features about this build is that the VIN number of the engine ends in 0001, indicating it is the very FIRST Production 132 cubic inch X-Wedge and has the added distinction of having the ONLY twin carburetor induction system in existence for the X-Wedge platform. The XWR transmission has the VIN ending in 0002. 


    S&S Cycle traveled the country in 2010 to all of the major rallies and Aftermarket trade shows with the FXRX-Wedge in tow. If you search hard enough, you'll find it doing a burnout at the World Famous Broken Spoke Saloon.  

    The FXRX-Wedge was featured in the September 2010 issue of American Iron Magazine, as well as the January/February issue of IronWorks Magazine. Check out the images of the feature articles in the thumbnails.
