2004 Redneck Mutant Custom Motorcycle
Up for sale is a specialty constructed 2004 Redneck Mutant motorcycle. The frame comes from Redneck Engineering (Redneck Eng Home Page) in Liberty, South Carolina. Fueling this bad boy is a motor from a 1999 Buell Cyclone (1200cc). This is a very unique motorcycle. If you want something that has a lot of muscle with a café racer style to it, here it is.
I purchased this bike in Hampstead, New Hampshire from a guy who runs his own garage/auto sales. He used the bike for his recreational use for a couple of years. This is the first time this bike has ever been titled. The previous owner used a dealer plate to get it around. The original owner was also the builder and used a dealer plate as well. When I brought it back to Philadelphia, it was as bare bones as a motorcycle gets and I knew the first thing I had to do was get it registered and titled. It had no turn signals, horn, speedometer/odometer, chain guard, or even keys (it powered up with the simple flip of a toggle switch and a push of the ignition button). In order to legally get it on the road, I had to take it to a certified garage and have it undergo a “makeover.” More specifically it had to get the work done in order to complete Form 426. This is a form that permits a specialty constructed vehicle to become registered and titled. After many hours of manpower (all done at Hot Rodz Total Biker in Bechtelsville, PA), the bike is now street legal, titled, registered, and inspected for the state of PA. All the proper paperwork has been submitted, and I am simply waiting for PENNDOT to send back the title with a new VIN #. I submitted this paperwork on October 7th and was told it takes approximately 2-3 weeks. This is a pretty significant accomplishment as many of the Redneck engineered bikes are not properly registered and titled.
Along the way to give it a clear path to pass inspection to become street legal, the mechanics went over every nut and bolt on the bike identifying and correcting any haphazard problem. This amounted to little more than a couple of minor oil leaks, some welding jobs, and replacing a few bolts and screws.
In short, the bike went through a lot of additional work to make it as safe and legal as it is today. Here is a list of just a few of the jobs since I have gotten it:
· Replacement of all fluids
· New tires front and back
· Turn signals added front and back
· Turn signal/high beam indicator installed
· Brake lights installed
· New license plate bracket
· Horn installed
· Speedometer/odometer installed
· Signal/horn/light controller installed
· Welding of motor mount reinforced
· New Battery
· Battery mount reinforced
· Heat wrapped exhaust pipes (black)
· Bolts for front controllers replaced
· Custom made chain guard
· Key power switch installed (comes with two keys)
· Oil leaks sealed
Here is a list of some characteristics of the bike:
· Mikuni HSR 42 Carb w/ velocity stack
· Crane Hi4 Ignition & Wires
· Bassani Sweeper Slash cut pipes
· Drag Specialties Oil Pressure gauge
· Custom AVS CLutch control bar setup
· PM forward Controls

· 200rr rear tire
· Wide 530 chain/ Sprocket kit
· New charging system
· Fresh fluids, recent Axle and chain adjustment
· Receipts Manuals & photos of build
I have had the bike out a few times since the completion of the work and it is an awesome ride. Since it is a hard tail, the ride is a rigid as one could expect. To combat the rigidness, it has a custom foam/gel seat that does a pretty terrific job of absorbing the shock. At full rotation, the handle bars kiss the gas tank causing a small but noticeable wear on the tank. Please see the picture for this. In no way does the placement of the handlebars impair drivability. It sits very low and is surprisingly compact for its size. The previous owner loaded it in the back of his Cadillac Escalade whenever he traveled to bike weeks. I could barely believe it until I saw pictures for myself. The pictures speak for themselves but I can’t emphasize enough the huge attraction this bike brought from people.
I am not in desperate need to sell this bike. I will have no qualms keeping it stored in my garage for the winter and pulling it out on the nicer days to ride before next spring when it will be out daily. In the short amount of time I have it, is has been fun watching it transform into what is has. Many of these Redneck frames bikes are going for much more than what I am asking. Many of these are not even street legal. With the amount of work that has been put into this bike, the insanely sick look it has, and an asking price of $9900, this bike is going to be a steal for someone.
I will do my very best to answer any questions you may have. The bike is being sold as-is. As fantastic condition as this bike is in, it is still a used bike so don’t expect a new one off the show room floor. Like many road bikes, it has its usual wear and tear I will do my best to identify in the pictures. If you would like any more detailed pictures, I can accommodate that as well. Please call or email directly with any questions.
Here is a link to a youtube.com video so you can see and hear it run.
As I mentioned above, I am waiting for the new specialty constructed title to come in the mail. Based off the information I was given, I’d expect to receive this between 10/21 and 10/28. I am simply getting the bike exposure beforehand. If a buyer should commit to the buy beforehand, the transaction won’t be able to occur until I actually receive the title.
I drastically reduced the price to this bike to $6750. If anyone is interested in seeing it, wants more pictures, or has any other questions, let me know!
