TWO 2 BAD Arlen Ness

1977’s Two Bad is one of the wild iconic custom bikes that helped make a name for Arlen Ness on the car show circuit. The drive train on this radical digger is made up of 2 HD shovel head engines. But the engines are not the only feature of this bike. That front wheel steering and suspension certainly qualify as unusual even if they had been done before. Get a load of the primary drive, those intake manifolds, the purple and gold leaf paint job and all that gold chrome. If Ratfink were here, this would be his ride for sure.

Built In: U.S.A. Bike Style: Retro Diggers
