This Custom Honda Valkyrie Is a Savage Luxury Thrill Ride
It’s the perfect date night muscle bike.
If there was ever a custom tricked-out ride perfect for a night on the town, it’d be H Garage’s Honda Valkyrie.
Shop owner Scott Halbleib told Pipe Burn that he set out to transform a 2014 Valkyrie into a “massive streetfrighter that you can ride to the opera with your fancy clothes on.”
Only the bike’s stock frame, wheels, suspension, gas tank and gargantuan 1800cc engine were largely left alone. Following the streetfighter design philosophy, Halbleib fashioned a brand-new angular shell with a two-tone grey and black coat of paint. That’s just just one his many creative tweaks.
Ride Apart has further details:
[Halbleib] cropped and chopped the tail as he does with all H Garage builds, adding a rear cowl and integrated LED lighting along the way.
A pair of fog lights found new life as the front turn signals, and two vertically-mounted LED headlights give the bike an aggressive, unconventional appearance. More subtle is the shortened subframe, radiator covers, and custom leather seat.
The rider also gets low-rise Biltwell handlebars and new grips, mirrors, and footpegs. Halbleib replaced the mufflers with Borla tips and found that the catalytic converter did a great job of quieting the beast all by itself.
The shortened exhaust shows off the custom single-sided swingarm, as well as the back wheel boasting a large 180-width tire.
The result is a head-turning motorcycle that’s truly like no other. Check out H Garage’s website for more details.
