From Wild to Mild
When you think of LED’s, you don’t think of beltdrives, but that is just what happens when you call Hitech in Canoga Park, California. Not only do these guys have some of the coolest LED products out for both cars and bikes, they also carry a full line of beltdrives to fit all tastes and sizes, from 3- to 7-inch-wide belts. They have all the extras you may need, as well as any size offset kits to align the motor and trans, and keep the rear wheel straight. To add to the different styles of every bike out there, the company also has a full line of changeable outer covers. We showed up with our ’99 Softail to show how different the bike could look by changing out the old enclosed primary to a wide-open beltdrive with a flashy cover plate or a tame cover plate. Hitech was inundated by telephone calls and emails from existing customers all over the world, as well as a new base of customers who were not only interested in its own outer bearing supported 4-, 5-, 6- and 7-inch Monster units, but also in upgrading their BDL, Karata, and Billet-4-U units with Hitech covers.
Arman Akserelian was glad to show us the how-to’s with the Hitech products. He wasted no time to get this job done and get us back on the road.
