This bike is reminiscent of the nostalgic bikes we built twenty years ago when Exile Cycles was first launched. We named it "Fat Bloke" after one of our very good friends back in sunny London. Enormous 6-gallon tanks really define this beast, and this particular one has a Softail frame as well as a sprung seat.

  • These days all bikes are built exclusively by Russell, and they start at around $60,000.
    Call him on 818 706 1230 if you are interested in discussing a project.
  • Most of our bikes can be supplied in Complete Bike Kit form, ready to paint and bolt together, for somewhere around $35,000.

These 'ground-up' bikes are built from scratch using an Exile frame and Exile parts throughout. Other than engines, transmissions and some electrical components we make almost every component for a bike. Almost any of our 'models' can also be created as a Trike. It is possible to mix-and-match style components from different bikes so we can build your Exile your way. You might like a particular bike we have built, but you might want a Softail frame, or different bars, or turn-signals, or a foot-clutch, or whatever, on your machine. These are NOT the only bikes we can offer. We are always available to discuss a new project in great detail.

Your Special will come with an Exile VIN number and a "Certificate of Origin for a Vehicle" that your DMV (or equivalent) will use to issue title (unless you are a California customer). Alternatively, we can supply a separate 'Manufacturer's Statement of Origin' for the frame, the engine and the transmission.
