Klock Werks Loud Bagger to Debut at SEMA 2014
The team at Klock Werks is at it again, this time creating a “loud” bagger, just in time to be revealed during SEMA in Las Vegas the first week in November.
The 1999 FLHT standard is “loud” on many levels. Between the “loud” paint scheme laid down by Brad Smith of theFactoryMatch.com, to the seven pairs of KICKER power sports and marine style speakers, to the 12” sub stacked in the tour pack – this bagger is “loud” enough to surely get your attention. The Kicker PXiBT50.2 controller directs the Bluetooth audio. The FLHT sports a “loud” stance with wide 180 tires on both front and rear wheels. Modified Klock Werks front and rear fenders, Klock Werks curvaceous upper fillers, flush mount axle, and KlipHanger “Splitter” handle bars were all used to kustomize this bike. Other partners on the project include Performance Machine, Progressive Suspension, Bagger Nation, Speed by Design, Fairing Factory, Barnett Performance, and Kinetik/UPG Battery.
Klock Werks’ Joe Mielke lead this “loud” project, and was hands-on from fender modifications, to fiberglass, to upholstering the seat himself. Joe’s love of FXR style motorcycles shows in his choice to mold an FXRT fairing to fit the project. “This motorcycle is fairly ridiculous. Loud paint, loud stereo, flashy wheels, big tires. Nobody in their right mind would do this to their motorcycle so it's perfect for SEMA. The goal is to bring attention to the fact that Klock Werks and Kicker Audio have brought some great DIY audio upgrade kits to the motorcycle market”, stated Joe.
KICKER® Performance Audio and Klock Werks Kustom Cycles joined forces to bring motorcycle riders the clearest and loudest audio equipment available, specifically designed and tuned for power sports applications. The Klock Werks Powered by KICKER® Audio Fit Kits include speakers that fit into factory openings, small footprint amp that mounts inconspicuously using the provided custom stainless steel bracket, and the included custom wiring harness offers 100% plug-n-play installation. Also included in the FIT KIT is all necessary hardware and instructions for easy installation for Harley, Victory, Kawasaki and Indian motorcycle fitments.
“This opportunity to team up with a reputable company in the bagger world gives us instant validation in a segment where we think we can make an impact and bring the legendary KICKER sound to motorcycle enthusiasts everywhere,” said Roger Demaree, KICKER Brand Evangelist. “The Klock Werks family is a team of outstanding people with a ton of talent and we’re looking for good things to come from the partnership.”
“Having a brand like KICKER to join forces with really concretes us into the marketplace,” said Brian Klock, founder and president of Klock Werks. “We hope to raise the bar for quality bagger audio into the foreseeable future.”
