The Big Dog K-9 is a custom chopper-style motorcycle that exudes power, style and a commanding presence on the road. It falls into the heavyweight chopper category and showcases a design that captures the essence of the American-made custom motorcycle culture.
Key Features and Specifications:
Engine: The Big Dog K-9 is equipped with a powerful V-twin engine, known for its performance and rumbling exhaust note. The engine displacement is typically around 1,916 cc (117 cubic inches), delivering substantial torque and power.
Design: The K-9 features a long, low-slung design with sleek lines, emphasizing its custom chopper aesthetic. It boasts a stretched-out frame, extended front end, and a rigid, hardtail-style rear suspension, contributing to its iconic chopper appearance.
Frame and Suspension: The frame of the Big Dog K-9 is typically crafted using rigid steel, ensuring stability and durability on the road. It employs a beefy front fork with a significant rake angle, giving the motorcycle an aggressive stance. The rear suspension is rigid, meaning it lacks any form of rear suspension system.
Wheels and Tires: The K-9 usually has large, eye-catching custom wheels. The front wheel is larger than the rear, contributing to the classic chopper proportions. Both wheels are typically fitted with wide, low-profile tires, providing ample grip and enhancing the motorcycle’s overall look.
Fuel Tank and Body: The K-9 often features a distinctive, sculpted fuel tank that complements the bike’s overall design. It may have a stretched tank with custom paint and graphics options, allowing owners to personalize their motorcycles. The minimal bodywork exposes the engine and other key components, further emphasizing the chopper style.
Controls and Accessories: The K-9 comprises standard motorcycle controls, including handlebars, handgrips, footpegs, and controls for operating the clutch, brakes, and throttle. Additional accessories, such as aftermarket exhaust systems, custom seats, and chrome accents, can be added to enhance the motorcycle’s aesthetics and performance.
Performance: Thanks to its powerful engine, the Big Dog K-9 delivers impressive performance on the road. It offers substantial torque and acceleration, allowing riders to enjoy a thrilling riding experience. However, it’s important to note that specific performance figures may vary depending on the engine configuration and modifications made by individual owners.
It’s worth mentioning that while the Big Dog Motorcycles company manufactured custom motorcycles for several years, they faced financial difficulties and ultimately ceased production in 2011. Therefore, the availability of the Big Dog K-9 and its specific features may vary depending on the used market and individual customizations.
The deceased original owner of this 2007 Big Dog K-9 #98 purchased the bike new in 2007 and only put just over three thousand miles on it before falling ill. That averages out to approximately two hundred miles annually. The family of the original owner is hoping to find a great home for this rare and nicely equipped chopper.
