Cop Cruiser

The handiwork of Bob Maynard and his adorns the tank and rear of Bailey#1

It’s got cop tires, cop a cop motor, a cop transmission. It’s a made before the trendies on, so what d’ya say, is it the new or what?

If Jake and Elwood had a it would no doubt be a duplicate of Bailey’s ’85 FXRP. For of you who don’t know what the P for, it means Police as in cop bike! Bailey bought his law machine when he was living in Pennsylvania, and drove the wheels off of it, up over 15,000 miles year.

But coming home from one night, some brain-donor out in front of him in traffic. Needless to the nose of the bike was wasted, roughly $4000 worth of But before you could blurt out the to Sweet Home Chicago, had adapted a Wide Glide end to the bike and put it back into the service it saw before the wreck.

Over the next few years, the went through various stages of modifications, with parts being either updated or chrome plated. The no doubt fed the urge to tinker so Bailey moved to New Paris, and set up shop in his grandparents’ barn. The Cycle Service shingle was out front, and the bike came yet again.

By the time it emerged the barn, the former cop bike was the same Wide Glide end, but with a dual-disc-brake from Bill’s Custom in Pennsylvania, and a Chrome Specialties tree.

Of course, Bailey didn’t a stock mill powering his Harley, so he tweaked the Evo with a overbore, a Dyna single-fire with two Dyna S coils, a 42mm carb, a Barnett Custom Chrome pipes and of detailing. The finishing touch was the spit and polish of a paint If the graphics look familiar, because Dayton, Ohio’s Bob (Bob’z Pro-Stylin’ Graphics) was the airbrush.

Maynard designed and painted the tank and fender graphics laying on the white basecoat.

help from Darvin Bailey has transformed his cop bike a cruiser that’s unlike others in that it actually ridden. The hog had a mere 7000 on it when he bought it, and that was 59,000 miles ago. see how many boulevard posers can that!
