The fuel tank, the centrepiece of the Vulcan 900 Custom’s design, received equally meticulous attention. Its carefully sculpted contours create an intricate play of light and shadows that, like a beautiful woman, attracts both the eye and the hand. And it is as the hand flows along the tank’s delicate curvature that its subtle shape, specially crafted to be pleasing to both the eye and to the touch, can be fully appreciated. To achieve the front end’s lightweight image, a thin, 21” wheel was chosen. But for a true custom machine, a simple wirespoke wheel just wouldn’t do. Instead, a spoke-style cast wheel with spokes whose shape was handcrafted to form an elegant 3D double-flanged design was created. This unique 21” cast wheel would be an eye-catcher even on a one-off custom bike.Then, to complete the clean, simple front end, a minimalist headlamp and straight ’bar (both chromed of course) were added.
