Kundratic Kustom's Mach 5 Knucklehead

 So, I'm at the 22nd Annual East Coast Indoor Nationals at the Cow Palace in Timonium, MD and I see this unbelievable bike on display.

 Now I'm sure your  asking yourself  "what the hell is he doing talkin about a bike when he was at one of the premier car shows on the East Coast" ?  Well, just take a look at this thing will ya !

It was put together by a local shop out of Baltimore, Kundatic Kustoms and it is a prime example of the quality of motorcycles
 that are now being invited to compete at this invitation only show.

 This board track inspired modern kustom features a 93 inch knucklehead engine build by Flathead Power. The frame is a Kraft Tech that was reworked by Kundratic and it has a springer front end.
 The two monsterous S &S Super B carbs really stand out and give the bike a  hot rod look that was a real crowd pleaser, as was the aluminum body work. I hung around looking at the bike for a while and these two features were big conversation starters.

Personally one of my favorite features of the bike were the perimeter brakes. They really allowed the wheels to be shown and kept the board tracker look that would have in my opinion been lost had they used a tradition brake set-up.

 I love knowing that Maryland is home to some world class custom motorcycle shops and once again a build like this shows that Baltimore truly is the hub of Kulture in our state. You can be sure the next time I am in the area I will stop by the shop, and of course , share the experience with the readers. In the meanwhile if you can't get enough of this award winning bike you can check out more pics and specs at their website

Oh, and as for the cars at this Car Show, don't worry it's covered. You can see pics from the show in the Events Coverage section of the blogazine
 There will be plenty more coming up,as I caught up with a few of the owners of some amazing local cars and shops, including a feature on the 1923 Ford C-Cab Delivery Wagon that I blogged about back in October.
So keep checking back, or better yet subscribe to GarageBoyz Magazine's Kulture Blogazine for FREE and don't miss a thing.
