Swift Motorcycle Company is the maker of this beautiful red Bar Chopper “SF” and sweet refers to our February cover model, Angie Inglima. Both the bike and Angie can be found only at Hawg Wyld Cycles in Lee’s Summit, Missouri. Angie works in the showroom at Hawg Wyld and will help you find that perfect part, accessory or motorclothes item.

I got my first look at the Swift Bar Chopper and Punisher models at this year’s Cycles N More Bike show. While at the show, I had the pleasure of meeting Tom Talley, owner of Hawg Wyld Cycles. Tom gave me the lowdown on these beautiful eye-catching factory customs and told me he is the only authorized Swift dealer in the area. Tom also went on to tell me how each bike is assembled and how each one carries a three year unlimited mileage warranty, which is practically unheard of in the factory custom industry.

Both the Bar Chopper and the Punisher come standard with an S&S 113 cubic inch motor that is assembled in-house in Swift’s state of the art facility in Phoenix, Arizona. The rigid frame models (RF) come standard with a Baker 5-speed transmission, while the suspension frame models (SF) come with a Baker 6-speed.

Where the rubber meets the road, you can choose between the Avon 250 mm rear tire with an Avon 21 inch front tire or one of Metzeler’s 240 mm V-Rated high performance rear tire with a matching 21 inch front.

Do you prefer a bold solid metallic color paint job or do you like something a little wilder? Spray Kats (Swift’s sister company) has some of the best graphic artists and painters in the business, who offer an endless variety of paint schemes and options.

Of all the Swift models available, my personal favorite is the Bar Chopper, which is why we selected this red beauty to grace the pages of our February cover. Tom currently has this red Bar Chopper “SF” in stock, a black Bar Chopper “SF” and a Punisher “SF” with a unique bare metal-style paint job. While we were nosing around Tom's shop, we noticed two Bar Choppers sitting in the back room with sold tags on them. One was yellow with multi-colored flames and the other had a very unique platinum color with flames. Both bikes were just sitting there, waiting for their proud owners to come by and take them home. According to Hawg Wyld manager, Eric Meyers, Swift bikes start out as low as $23,000 and go up from there, depending on the model and options you choose.

Hawg Wyld Cycles also has a large selection of Harley-Davidson motorcycles in stock, and can handle all of your parts, accessories and apparel needs. And when it’s time for your next custom paint job, Tom’s son, Chris, is a very talented and respected painter, who is ready to help you design that next masterpiece.

These new Swift bikes won’t last long, so if you want one of your very own, you’d better hightail it down to Hawg Wyld Cycles at 406 S. Douglas in Lee’s Summit, Missouri before it’s too late!
