Founded in 1995 in Phoenix, Arizona, Titan Motorcycle Company was the first custom motorcycle company to produce in volume. As v-twincity.com writes, the Titan Motorcycle Company was founded on the back of the cult of the big, boisterous, all-American V-Twin motorcycles immortalized in the likes of “Easyrider,” “The Wild Ones”, and “Electra Glide In Blue.”
Designed to capture the free-riding spirit of the American West, their muscular machines were loud, proud, and shiny. With names like Gecko, Roadrunner, Sidewinder, and Phoenix, Titan bikes were hand-built, unique and custom-designed. But unlike most hand-built, unique and custom-designed bikes, they were readily available and, most importantly of all, marketed at an affordable price point.
By 2001, the firm was in financial trouble, selling to one of the major shareholders of the company, before getting in to further and final financial and legislation issues in 2007 and the doors closed. They are well-made (look closely at the fit and finish), stylish and built in limited numbers, the Titan brand and its storied past is bound to be a future collectible classic marque.
The 1998 Titan Roadrunner offered here comes from a Florida collection of varied machines. Purchased as a future collectible, the bike was ridden a couple of times before being parked in an appropriate storage environment to maintain the as-new condition of the bike. Now, with only 226 miles on the odometer, the bike is ready for the next collection.
The specifications are as follows:
Engine no. YC1237
