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.
Shannon: Exhaust, not full exhaust, just slip-ons.
Ryan: Intake, stereo…
Shannon: Oh yeah.
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!
