Ballistic Cycles: 30″ Wheel Custom Bike

Custom Motorcycles

Last year some said it couldn’t be done. Others said the idea was too extreme to make it a reality. Ballistic Cycles said, "We’ll just see about that," and built the first ever motorcycle with a 30" front wheel.

Just to stop the naysayers who said it couldn’t be ridden, they even fired the bike up in sub-zero temperatures for a ride in February 2010, which is shown in this YouTube video.

The motorcycle, named "Paradigm," was debuted in the Wizards Products booth at the 2010 V-Twin Show in Cincinnati. To prove it wasn’t just a fluke, they’re doing it again.

Wizards Products will once again team up with Ballistic Cycles to introduce, a new 30" wheeled creation from Ballistic Cycles.

This one of a kind bagger promises to be over the top and set the custom motorcycle world on its ear . . . again. It will be unveiled at the Wizards booth at the 11th Annual V-Twin Expo in Cincinnati, Feb. 5-7, 2011. It is guaranteed to stir up controversy — just like last year!

Stop by the Wizards booth #363 to see this amazing custom from Ballistic Cycles, the latest mind-blowing work, "Apocalypse" from acclaimed International artist, author and instructor Blake McCully of Cross-Eyed Airbrushing, and the full Wizards line of finishing products.

RJ Star Inc. / WIZARDS, manufacturer and exclusive distributor for WIZARDS Products, offers a complete, professional line of appearance care items designed to clean, shine and protect all surfaces of the vehicle.
