Custom Cycle Controls & SAS Testimonial
From: Ben Bare Age: 49
A little Motorcycle History: I started riding motorcycles at the age of ten.
Started on dirt and went from there to street bikes even did some dirt bike racing in Japan when I was much younger. I have owned and road everything from quads, crotch rockets, cruisers, Harleys & customs.
Present Day Throttle Therapy, I have a custom ten-foot long chopper that rides and looks like a dream. My wife requires me to see my Therapist on a regular Basis, I LOVE THERAPY!
Made by American Performance Cycles (APC) it is a High Roller 300. This bike has some very unique and special features which are a Single Sided Swing Arm, right side drive (RSD) with an 300mm rear tire an S&S 125ci motor and a Baker 6 speed overdrive transmission with Climax Hand Controls handlebars and Simplified Air System (SAS) made by Custom Cycle Control Systems to list a few.
With all the special features it’s what you DON’T see that makes the Bike Neck Breaking Gorgeous; No Wires, No Cables, No Hoses, No Brakes Lines, No Brake or Clutch reservoirs, all contained inside the handlebars. Clean very easily maintained and Serviced with all the bells and whistles intact the self-canceling turn signals, Cruise control (throttle lock), Hi-Lo beam, and a Wire plus Gauge.
Climax Hand Controls handlebars are the only hand controls that get rid of all the Handlebar Clutter, all the hoses, hardware, wires and cables ALL disappear into the handlebars. The front of your Bike is clean and sleek nothing showing or fluid lines to be pinched.
Bettering the list is the SAS Unit, which is by far the best air suspension I have had the pleasure of using or installing. The Simplified Air System (SAS) also a clean unit with no wires or lines is an air ride rear suspension with the air pump encased between the shocks mounted where your stock system used to be, the suspension improvement alone will amaze and astonish you then you will wonder what took you so long.
I can tell you from experience that trying to mount the air pump is a HUGE pain & running airlines and wires really is not worth it. However, with the SAS unit you pull the stock shocks out and bolt in the SAS unit it is simple. Three #18-gauge wires mount air in and out buttons on the frame by your seat and the best part of any project YOU ARE DONE.
The suspension is a 100% better than stock shocks, and the ride is SO smooth it will blow your mind and since it’s adjustable, you can stiffen it up when want to ride two up. Custom Cycle Control Systems have excellent tech support and will always answer any question about installing or using their product. There are a few pictures of my “Throttle Therapy” at the top of my testimonial to show how sleek and clean it looks.
Thank You Custom Cycle Control Systems!
