  • Featured Image Shop Logo Derby Engraving!

    Finally found a little time to do something for myself! I was surrounded last weekend by others who had a lot of work done by me on their bikes and got a bit jealous! I had to come finish my own Derby cover and have some more work on my own scoot. I hand engraved this derby cover of what I call the Juggerhead logo and got it installed. Check it out and as always, send inquiries on your own custom hand made art or engravings or whatever custom application you want to juggernautsgarage@gmail.com! Or, you can always stop by and see what we have going on.

    What’s more truly custom than one of a kind and hand made? What do  you have on your ride?

    Peace, Grease and a Life of Ease,

  • Featured Image How Custom is Your Bike Without Custom Engraving?

    Check out the latest. I will have these designs for the Bike Nights and the Wingmen MC swap meet at the end of the month. Then, I will put them up for sale on the website. These are all designs that I thought customers may like and decided to have some on hand for people to see in person. These are all done by hand, in shop and I can do just about whatever you would like on all kinds of different engravable parts for many different motorcycles. If you have something you want engraved, hit me up and we will see if we can make it happen!

  • Featured Image Greasy Dozen Build Update

    I’ve been working long and hard getting a few items finished for the shop so customers can see all that we have to offer. In the meantime, I have done a few things for the Greasy Dozen Build and I’m working on some bigger items to share. When I have the items complete, I will post them as a start to finish.

    I started work on the OEM transmission. Before I started tearing this thing apart, I noticed a hitch in the kicker. Every few kicks the kicker arm would slip. I will be tearing into it to fix whatever issue that is and to install some heavier duty kicker elements so my fat ass doesn’t break it in the future.

    I started with hand polishing the original cast cases to see what I could do. I think it came out awesome! I started with wet to dry sandpaper. Went from 350 and didn’t miss a step from there to 5,000 grit. Next comes polish and a sealant. Painstaking work that isn’t quick. But, the end result is satisfying and beautiful!

    The next step was getting some other OEM parts cleaned and powder coated. Check out the battery box before and after. Also, in the last photo you will see a few other parts like my custom fender struts and clutch arm and a few other pieces. All done with help from one of my best friends Allen from VSM. He did a fantastic job.

    More work to come. Heads and rocker boxes are being worked on, battery box being engraved and more than I care to think about…

  • Featured Image H-D St. Bob Ignition Relocation; What Should Have Been, Part 2

    Yes, there are ways to do this. There are pluses and minuses to every method. The method shown keeps the original ignition/fork lock on the neck in place and maintains the fork lock function the way it always was. The downside is this will require a separate key that turns on your new ignition.  Some, get the new ignition made keyed to match the original so both the neck, fork lock and ignition use only one key. This lets you avoid having to carry two small, different keys in your pocket.  There are also full kits to order and you get all the components together at one time and ready for installation.

    Some variances of installation will still require you have to have the specifically made tool to remove the actual ignition and, a new key position indicator washer thing because most get messed up during removal. And, like I said in Part 1, some folks just order new dash panels for Wide Glide models with the ignition point already installed. The list could go on and on.  Go whichever route you would like. The option I’m describing requires little, if any, extra effort compared to all those other options. The best part is the cost is significantly less. Period. Do the research and figure which option suits your wallet. I’ll be just fine and comfortable carrying one tiny key for ignition and one for the fork locks.

    If you are going the same route as me, there are other ways to mount the ignition to the dash as well. Some show they drilled the bolt holes right through the top of the dash and mount it directly onto the dash itself. A lot of others have been seen doing it similar to what I’m doing here, creating a mounting plate to use as a stand for the ignition. To be honest, bolting the ignition right onto the dash would have been easier but, also will create 4 more holes to seal against water and would have the top of the bolts visible right on the dash. If you’re cool with looking at four bolts around your ignition and want an easy assembly, by all means, go that route.

    Pickin’ up right where we left off;

    9 template10 pattern trace

    The next step is to take a sheet of paper and your dirty hands. Set the paper on top of the mounting area and press down, making an exact outline of your mounting surface. Make sure to press down where all the bolt holes are. Take your template and cut it out, set it on your aluminum, mark it and cut it all out. I used a drill for the bolt holes and put a bit of electrical tape around the outer edge to protect against sharp edges.

    11 mock up

    Once it’s all cut out, set it all up for mock-up.

    12 prep for placement13 Mock up stand

    Place some two sided or rolled up masking tape on the aluminum ignition plate you made. Put the dash back on in the correct position while holding the ignition unit in the cut out ignition hole. Once everything is in place, set the ignition unit down on top of the masking tape. It’s now in position for you to mark the holes for the ignition unit. Drill the holes out and mock up the new ignition stand using the bolts and screws etc. as shown in the pic.

    14 Lengthen Wires

    Mock up everything again to ensure proper placement of the new ignition set up and start making measurements of how much wire you will need to add to the ignition wires. Don’t add too much extra wire because it will get crowded and messy under the dash real quick.

    15 Fitment

    Make sure to get the wires lined up correctly to the correct posts of course. Then solder the wires back together.  Do the heat shrink and wrap thing and you may need some extra electrical tape and/or tiny zip ties to hold the wires together neatly. Or, be a slob if your into that sorta thing, I don’t care…

    8 Grommet16 Dielectric

    Place in the grommet, add some dielectric grease to the end of the ignition and stick it all back together.

    18 Finished

    Check to make sure it works!

    If you have any questions on anything just let me know or leave a comment and someone may chime in to help offer you a solution. This is a must-do mod for St. Bob owners. This is how things should have been from the start!

  • Your Harley never looked better!

    Been doing a bunch of Harley-Davidson primary derby covers lately. The guys from the Watchmen LEMC are currently my biggest customers! Can’t thank them enough for their continued support from the beginning of the shop. I’ve done wallets, derby covers and leather face-masks for them. These guys know and love custom and appreciate hand made craftsmanship. Here are some highlights of what I have been doing.

    You can order a custom, one of a kind derby cover from me and we can design it and get it just the way  you want it. Just hit me up at juggernautsgarage@gmail.com or on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/JuggernautCycles. Prices start at $220, which is less than even most machine made custom derby covers. Your will be a hand made work of art to display on your ride. All the covers currently show fit all Harley Twin Cam 99-2014 only. These do not fit Evo or any Sportster models! But, have no fear, those covers can be ordered as well as older models like for Shovelheads as well. You can also choose if you would like polished aluminum, flat black, gloss black or wrinkle finish derby. All covers will come with a protective clear coat finish to protect the exposed metal though.

    As for custom leather face masks, these will start at around $110. They come adjustable and are fully customizable as well, pick your image, finish etc. Enjoy!
