How enormous? Well, consider it like this: generally speaking a large rear wheel measures 300 mm wide. It’s a size so immense, in fact, that these wheels are extremely rare, and in certain extreme cases they necessitate special certification.
The Demon (that is the post-conversion name of the motorcycle we are discussing) dons something even larger than that. To be more precise, it measures 360 mm wide, creating a spectacle that surpasses nearly everything else.
I am mentioning the Demon because some of the photos of the ride displayed it accompanied by another motorcycle, equipped with a slightly more conventional (in terms of size) rear wheel. The two bikes were captured side by side just to provide us with some perspective on how size impacts the visual impression of a customized project.
This article focuses on the accompanying ride, featuring the smaller wheel. It took some time, but we managed to locate it, so here it is.
The motorcycle is named Xilla, and it is also based on a V-Rod – specifically one manufactured by Harley-Davidson in 2009, during the peak of this family’s dominance. It is supported by Night Rod wheels, with undisclosed diameter. However, we do know that the rear wheel measures 280 mm wide – significant compared to the stock size, but still minuscule compared to the one on the Demon.
Above each wheel, DD installed customized fenders (with the rear one adorned with Kellerman tail lights), but they are not the only body parts that were added in altered form. The front section of the motorcycle appears particularly massive thanks to the installation of an impressive fuel tank shroud, and an air box cover that truly emphasizes the ride’s muscular characteristics.
The motorcycle moves forward with the power provided by the original Revolution engine, only enhanced with a Vance & Hines 2-in-1 exhaust system to improve its breathing. It is unclear if the installation of this hardware affects the V-Rod’s performance in any way. An air ride suspension system ensures proper handling on the road and striking aesthetics when stationary.
The glossy black machine was assembled some time ago, and we have no way of knowing its current whereabouts in the world. The other significant unknown is the final cost, something that is rarely disclosed when it comes to such projects.
