Not only is the owner of this bizarre machine responsible for its design, he's also responsible for its creation. Kenny Rollins built the Bad Moon chopper around a hardtail chassis from Killer Choppers, setting a springer fork from the Paughco catalog at a 49-degree rake. The 40-spoke front wheel has a single disc brake, and the Rader mag-style rear wheel is equipped with a combination brake disc/sprocket from Exile.
In between sits an 88-cubic-inch Rev Tech V-twin that combines the look of a vintage Harley-Davidson Panhead engine with the advantages of modern technology. The snakey exhaust system was custom-made by Rollins. A 5-speed Rev Tech transmission gets both hand- and foot-operated shifters.
Perhaps the most obvious design feature is the oversized Moon fuel tank. Coated in chrome, it is mounted directly to the upper frame tube. Other custom touches include a chromed, oval oil tank below the sprung saddle, and a tall, warped sissy bar. It all combines to create a very unusual machine, which is exactly what the owner wanted -- and built.
