This is the transcript of the January Count’s Kustoms video that is featured on quickthrottle.com

Shannon: What’s going on gang?  This is Shop Talk with Shannon & Ryan.

Ryan: How’s everybody doing?

Shannon: I’m doing great, how about you?

Ryan: I’m doing uhm, you know other than a little head cold as usual.  I’m doing pretty good.

Shannon: Alright, well, so, you want to buy this bike?

Ryan: I wish I could.

Shannon: (Pointing at Margarita Bike giveaway flyer) Hey right here, here you go.  Just buy a Tattoo Tequila Margarita and you get [entered to win] a free bike.

Ryan: The Margarita Bike, that’s right!

Shannon: Yes, the Margarita Bike. So are you guys interested in a cool, brand new 2019?  Here it is– Tattoo Tequila.

Ryan: It’s mildly massaged, a little bit by Count’s Kustoms. A little custom paint, some custom parts here and there.

Shannon: What do you mean, “mildly-massaged?”  What do you mean “mildly?”

Ryan: Alright, it’s a cool bike. (chuckling)  It really is.

Shannon: A brand-new 2019 Harley-Davidson Road Glide.  114 cubic inch motor.  This is just one of the things you can do with the bike. There are many other things.  You like those handlebars?

Ryan: (sitting on the bike and turning the front wheel back and forth) I like everything about this bike.  I’ve never been a big bagger rider.  Like I appreciate them.  But as far as me being on a bagger, it’s not really me. But the seat we put on this thing!

Shannon: Why is it just the seat? What about the paint job you put on this thing?

Ryan: Look at this seat!

Shannon: I know.

Ryan: That cushions your tushy, and your back and everything.  And it doesn’t look like a bagger seat.  It doesn’t look like you got a Davenport.

Shannon: That’s a bolt-on seat.  Off the shelf, put on the bike, seat from Drag Specialties.

Ryan: Dude, we need to have a whole shelf of those seats.

Shannon: But Rockford Fosgate, did you see the stereo on this thing?

Ryan: I did.  Ghetto Bob did a Rockford Fosgate stereo on this thing.

Shannon: Bobby hooked it up!

Ryan: Man, talk about “hold your ears.”

Shannon: I mean from the bars to the seat to the paint to the stereo.

Ryan: Exhaust…

Shannon: Exhaust, not full exhaust, just slip-ons.

Ryan: Intake, stereo…

Shannon: Oh yeah.

Ryan: Seat…

Shannon: The intake’s cool.  You gotta see this intake.  That’s Ryan dabbling in his uhm, is that sand-blasting? Is that what you did? Sand-blasted our cross in there? Count’s logo.

Ryan: We did that on Twinkle-Toes and we’ve done it on our stainless steel oil tanks, so why not?

Shannon: Alright, well this is Shop Talk with Ryan & Shannon.  Happy Holidays guys.

Ryan: I can’t believe this is a stock Harley-Davidson.

Shannon: That was the ending of the story.  Have a good day.  Aloha.

Ryan: See you guys!
