American Bagger Magazine, Money Pit

Mark Thompson of Glendale, AZ purchased his '08 FLHX brand new from Hacienda Harley. Having grown up riding a '69 Ironhead Sportster that he built with his dad, Mark loved the way his Bagger rode. It was comfortable, started every time with the push of a button, didn't leak oil, and he could ride long distances with a passenger. But from day one something was missing. Seeing all of those nice custom Baggers running around Phoenix inspired Mark to make a change. Mark contacted Nick Trask and signed up for the full custom package. Three months later Money Pit was finished. Mark was broke but he couldn't have been happier. Trask rebuilt the stock motor and bumped it up to 113" using primarily Screamin' Eagle components.

To guzzle more fuel, a 58mm Screamin' Eagle throttle body was installed along with a Performance Machine air cleaner so the big motor could breathe better. Rinehart True Dual exhaust was also installed. The Bagger now produces 120 horses and 120 ft.-lbs. of torque.

The neck rake is 38º and there are an additional nine degrees of rake in the triple trees. A 26" Performance Machine Gasser wheel rolls on the front with matching PM rotors. On the back is a matching 18" Gasser wheel and matching rotor. The 12" Bagger Nation Monkey Bars feature Performance Machine grips and hand controls with Ness mirrors. The distinctive fairing is from Sinister Industries, as are the front and rear fenders, taillight and license plate mount. The stock gas tank was stretched and Guy's Upholstery built the custom seat to match it.

The floorboards are from Carl Brouhard Designs. Arlen Ness supplied the pegs and foot controls. Sinthium Inc. handled the paint and graphics which feature some amazingly detailed skulls and spider webs.

Nick used to be known as the crazy turbo guy, but lately he has been receiving just as much acclaim for his groundbreaking customs. For more information, visit www.traskperformance.com.
