A TREAT FOR THE STREETS
KLOCK WERKS’ PUMPKINSPICE-FLAVORED VICLA
Klock Werks’ Pumpkin Spice Flavored Vicla
“MMM...NOTHING SAYS FALL LIKE THE TASTE OF A
yummy pumpkin spice latte.” Things your ol’ lady might say on October 1, right? Yeah, it might be something along the lines of a “basic” thing to say, but damn it if the guys at Klock Werks didn’t nail that sentiment in the form of a ridiculously slick Heritage Softail. The bike does summon all the feels of the autumn season, but in a badass, gentlemanly street-thug-whoreally-loves-halloween kind of way.
All horseplay aside, the outcome of Klock Werks’ Vicla-styled Softail is definitely no joke. Nobody really planned for the bike to end up looking the way it does today. It really started out as a dilapidated bike that Brian Klock purchased from his longtime friend Gene Slater. The whole idea behind doing something with the Softail in the first place was to use it as a showcase for Klock Werks’ Benchmark stretched front and rear steel fenders. Since there was a steady demand for these particular fenders being used on Vicla builds in the States and abroad, the time to build an official Klock Werks bike around them had finally presented itself.
Brian and his talented crew had a loose plan of action in motion for their new project bike, and even had a deadline in place for its completion—the 2016 annual Drag Specialties dealer

And Jeremy Seanor’s paint job, from Lucky Strike Designs, adds the perfect amount of punch to the build.
