Stealth Reviews a Customized Harley-Davidson Deuce
By Stealth of TheCarolinaRider.com
Just Another Roll of the Dice!
"Well I’ve been a losin’ gambler,Just throwing snake eyes,
All my elevens and sevens been comin’ up sixes and nines,
I’ve stumbled and made my mistakes, But tonight I’m gonna be playin’ for all the stakes,
Well it’s never too late, so come on girl, The tables are waiting, You me and Lady Luck,
Well tonight we will be celebrating,Drinking champagne on ice,
It’s just another roll of the dice!" (Bruce Springsteen)
In some ways life is just another roll of the dice, nothing promised, just chance to take. You never know how those dice will fall, sometimes you are a winner and sometimes you lose. That is life! Ron Snipes, the owner of the '03 Deuce you see here, came up all sevens and elevens with this bike!
Ron is the Owner of Snipes machine shop, and this bike was a shop project. The Deuce never really caught fire for Harley. Some liked it, some hated it, some hated the rear fender, and on it goes. I always thought with a little customizing they could be transformed into a cool b$tchin' ride like you see here.
The engine is a 131' twin cam, so we are talking some serious black top scorching ability here. It will blast you down the black ribbon! One thing I really like about this bike is the D&D Borzilla exhaust, very clean and very mean looking.
This Deuce is a looker as well as a goer! The Rev-Tech Dominator wheels are bad a$$! That flame and dice paint job is from Harley-Davidson, #131 of 200 sets made. These flame and dice sets were one of my favorite paint schemes form HD! Flames and dice are just a biker thing...
This ride is a real looker and stands out in a parking lot full of bikes. I like bikes that are customized in this fashion - you can still ride them and they still say Harley loud and clear!
Ron takes a lot of pride in his Deuce; as he should, it is as clean as a whistle and sharp as a knife!
I came across Ron's bike at a local bike night. I go to bike nights 'cause just like those dice you never know what's waiting and like life that is what makes it fun! Go on now roll them bones! ...
