SPADE Blings Cycles

Bill Dodge built the frame and all sheet metal—gas tank and gas cap, rear fender, battery box and oil tank. The front end is Bling’s with modified Harley lower legs, and the triple trees, risers and handlebars are Bling’s, as well. The motor is an S&S 93? Shovelhead with an S&S Super E carb and S&S air cleaner. When asked about the transmission, Bill responds, “BAKER 6-speed—always!” S&S supplied the high-output ignition, Tech Cycles the belt drive and starting system, and Cycle Electric the alternator. The exhaust is a Bling’s-modified Rinehart system. At age 9 Bill moved to Long Beach. Having ridden and worked on motorcycles since he was a kid, he became shop foreman for Jesse James of West Coast Choppers. Bill stayed for eight years, eventually moving to Asbury Park, New Jersey, in 2005 where he opened Bling’s Cycles.
