Apex / a·pex /ˈāpeks/ noun: the highest point in a plane or solid figure, relative to a base line; verb: reach a high point or climax.
Now available for purchase, Apex, much like its namesake, is a one of a kind bike that was designed, fabricated, and assembled by Appalachian Harley-Davidson in collaboration with the students from Cumberland-Perry Vo-Tech School to be at the top of its class. This masterpiece was named Race Category winner in the 2019 Harley-Davidson Battle of the Kings Competition, a prestigious award sought by many entrants, but earned by few.
This bike began life with humble beginnings as a stock, factory built 2019 Harley-Davidson Road King Special. Once chosen, this bike was transformed from the ground up into the award-winning showpiece it now is. Handling and performance were top of the list of must haves for this bike and nothing was spared in ensuring that it fit the bill.
Custom fabricated mid-controls paired with uniquely engineered shift linkage optimize ergonomics and ensure seamless rider operation. Purpose-built, redesigned front steering geometry, paired with custom suspension similar to that found on a track bike, make it possible to enjoy “sport-bike” corner carving and the feeling that your ride is on rails. The performance was enhanced by upgrading the already stout Milwaukee Eight power plant to a ferocious 117 Cubic Inch Stage 3 Beast. Paired that with a hand tailored 2 into 1 exhaust and the roar is sure to bring a smile to anyone’s face.
Not only does this bike perform, it looks good doing it! One-off gold powder coat to envelope the frame, swing arm, and engine covers. Hand sculpted saddlebags and bobbed rear fenders accent the bike perfectly and are accented by meticulous hand painted fuel tank emblems and trim pieces. Top that off with the replacement of all factory hardware to 12-point ARP fasteners to complete and please even the most discerning eye. If you haven’t seen this bike in person, stop by Appalachian Harley-Davidson to appreciate it and treat yourself to a once in a lifetime experience. By the way, it’s also for sale!
