No Chrome on this Cruiser

Cliff Randall's Chromeless Cruiser
    The chopper and custom craze is in full swing, and it's nice to see an over-the-top metric cruiser for a change. Cliff Randall from Candada spared no expense when he took this 2002 Honda VTX1800C from stock to "astonishing." A year in the making, the Chromeless Cruuiser, as Randall has named it, has a long list of goodies, not to mention over 2000 hours of labor and $131,665 thrown at the beast!
    Honda Canada provided the bike and an extra motor, in addition to a pile of extra parts. The bike was painted by Ron Gaston at Concepts on wheels, while Vic Lefebvre did all of the bodywork and body modifications.
    Cameron McGillot at Plastic Surgeon did all of the plastic fabrication to areas such as the fairings. Colourific Coatings Ltd. powder-coated all of the parts, but first the Plating House had to strip all of the chrome off. SRK Results did much of the anodizing, including all of the brackets, nuts, bolts, clamps and axles.
    Works Performance built custom, 11-inch, nitrogen-charged shocks, and Wolfe Works built the front fork and modified numerous other parts, in addition to Chimaera Inc. anodizing the front fork tubes black.
    MotoSpeed, a Swedish company, built the 2000cc cylinders and pistons, and John Parker Racing assembled and flowed the motor. Dynojet provided the PC3 fuel-management system. The exhaust was custom-made by Brant Design, and Fireball Coatings added a ceramic coating to the exhaust.
