Aaron Colton is one of the most recognised Street Freestyle riders in the world, but he’s also a dab hand in the garage too.
Which is why he’s been customising a Victory Octane ahead of the Sturgis Rally in South Dakota next month, where he plans to let rip in front of the thousands of bikers attending the week-long rally.
He’s built the #93Octane in his home garage and says it’s shaping up to be a stallion: “Why am I building this? I’m building it because I want a bike that puts the power to the ground and I can shred on, “ he enthuses. “The build on the #93Octane is going to be pretty cut and dry, it’s not going to have a lot of thrills, but the components are going to be second-to-none and we’re changing the ergonomics more to the sport side of things. Once this bike is done there’s going to be quite a few playgrounds it’s going to be ready for.”
Full details will be available next week.
