When it comes to high-performance aftermarket starter, arburetor, uel-injection, nd fuel-management systems for Harley-Davidson motorcycles, erry is known as one of the leading authorities. He is also a member of the prestigious custom Harley-Davidson club, he Hamsters USA.Terry started with a custom-built boxed frame C-notched to accept the narrowed Ford 9-inch rearend stuffed with Richmond 4.11 gears. To achieve its aggressive stance, erry used cut coils and 2-inch Chrysler drop spindles up front and flipped the rearend atop the rear leaf springs. A pair of Koni gas shocks helps stabilize the front suspension, hile a pair of Koni air-adjustable shocks controls the rear's ride height and payload capabilities. The Chrysler spindles were teamed up with Cadillac disc brakes, ocated on each corner for equal stopping ability. The front 15x8-inch Weld Racing Pro Star aluminum wheels were wrapped in P245/55R15 Goodyears, nd the rear 15x14-inch Welds were consumed in massive 29x15.50x15-inch Mickey Thompsons.Lifting the hood exposes a healthy '75 Chevrolet 454ci big-block shoehorned between the framerails. The engine block and cylinder heads were coated in exterior-matching hamster yellow. The round port cylinder heads were massaged by Terry Components. The polished aluminum intake manifold supports four Weber 48mm IDF fine-tuned down-draft carburetors. You have to check out the wild black-flamed carburetor, elocity stacks, nd black-flamed valve covers. A smooth, olished aluminum firewall, lack inner fenders, nd a brass radiator top tank add to the total underhood presentation. A covered MSD Blaster ignition coil delivers the initial spark to the MSD distributor which distributes the electrical pulse to each cylinder's spark plug through the yellow Taylor 8mm ignition wires, hich ignite the air and gas mixture inside the engine's combustion chamber. The engine's spent gases are exhausted through the 2-1/2-inch outside diameter Hooker Headers, hich flow into the two-chamber Flowmaster mufflers, eveloping that distinguished, hroaty rumble.The timeless interior was done by Terry using early model bucket seats covered in soft gray leather. Massive Chevy Bow Ties were embossed in the leather inner side panels, nd the headliner also received gray leather treatment. The dash was maintained with the refurbished original gauges, nobs, nd radio. Billet aluminum door handles and window cranks were installed. The door panels were dressed up by adding a gray leather scuff pad at the bottom of each door, nd the armrests were covered in gray leather with a matching custom-stitched stash pouch. The entertainment system was kept simple with an AutoSound head unit with a six-disc CD changer running through an equalizer and amp, nto the two 6-inch round speakers located in the door panels and 6x7-inch in the rear.For every show the yellow '55 panel has attended, t has earned a place in the top three spots. Needless to say, erry's '55 Panel is definitely a distinctive hamster, nd any hamster would be stoked to drive this too-cool panel.
