The Cyclery
If you lost your heart and soul to the Milwaukee iron steeds from the first decades of the last century, you'll probably appreciate every little bit of help you can get to make your wrenching life a tiny bit easier. Here's The Cyclery.

Way back when motorcycles were little more than motorized bicycles, a Cyclery usually was a shop or workshop. From our own sweat stained, cussword-lined experience we know what black holes of non-existent availability of long obsolete parts exist in the world of historic machines. Not to mention the prices that rare OEM parts can command. So a while ago we started to have a selection of hard-to-find tools and spares reproduced by master craftsmen using period methods.

Among them are not only exact reproductions but also a couple of period-respecting newly developed parts. In the 100 years between then and now a few points of improvement may have popped up. Originality has been respected where it counts, and improvements may have been introduced where it seemed desirable.

Needless to say that we stick to our principles with old iron, too: we ride it – we sell it. And that doesn’t mean just around the block. We rode a 1915 model F across the USA, 3400 miles from Atlantic City to Carlsbad, CA, during the 2016 Cannonball Race of the Century. This turned out to be the ultimate test for many a part offered under the brand THE CYCLERY.

And even if your next ride doesn’t aim that far, having some extra built-in stamina means less worries on the road. The Cyclery is stoked by the idea of making life working on a historic motorcycle that little bit easier.

Full Throttle to the Past
Let’s rewind time a little, say, 80, 90, or 100 years and switch into black and white mode. Let’s imagine thundering, brakeless machines, barreling around board tracks, flat tracks and dirt tracks, kicking up the dust and the oil fumes, their riders hunched way down, their throttles wide open all the time. Screaming metal, burning steel, reduced to the absolute essentials, sleek, lightweight and loud as hell …

It’s kinda easy for true Harley aficionados to get inspired by the awesome racers that intrepid riders such as Red Parkhurst, Jim Davis or Joe Petrali thrashed around America’s race tracks. Why not transplant some of that spirit on to one’s own bike and get a step closer to those heroes of yore.
Racing vintage Harleys of the 1910s to 30s has been one of our favorite pastimes over the years. More than once we hit a wall though, when parts, needed to replace the crumbling vintage innards of our machines, were hard to find. Those narrow tanks and low slung handlebars, period correct seats, magneto ignitions, hubs, rims, throttle cables, switches, all that stuff essential to keep those classics rolling just wasn’t there.
At some point we began to have non-existent parts reproduced by craftsmen using traditional methods. True to our motto “We race it, we sell it.”, we built up a range of parts that not only can help to revive the old clunkers, but carries a load of inspiration for late model sleds too. An Evo engined board tracker? It can be done. If it’s vintage or late model, our team of Harley riding phone operators is there when you need them. Ask them all those questions about your Harley of today, yesterday or – as just described – the beginning of all time.

Cannonball MAG-12 Wheels
If you’re serious about wrenching your Harley, you’ll always be looking for that special part that makes all the difference. Introducing the legendary Mag Wheel.
When in the 60s car drag racing started to move from being a pastime of a few aficionados to serious motor sport, equipment got ever more important. Among other things lightweight and truly round wheels capable of taking hard loads got popular. And there it was, the magical wheel, the dragster front wheel, cast from magnesium alloy. It was called mag wheel. Not long, and the first chopper jocks tried to bolt these wheels to their rides. A favorite ever since: the 12 spoke variety.
The mag wheels of yore with their respective sizes of 15” and 18” are extremely rare by now and about as easy to find as an Ironhead Sportster that starts on the first kick. Even if one of those beauties can be unearthed, it should be clear that time has never stopped nibbling away at the metal — and the task of making them compatible with Harley brakes and axles is another story.
That’s why W&W had the Cannonball MAG-12 wheels cast using the latest technology and state-of-the-art aluminum alloys which guarantee long-term trouble-free service. The hub design was changed, too, in that it accepts special adapters which allow for the installation of common H-D drum and disc brake systems.
The Cannonball MAG-12 takes its styling cues from the originals, but is certified to take loads of 350 kg per wheel, and engineered to be compatible with a variety of Harley brake and sprocket setups. The available sizes of 16” and 19” give a wide scope of application for that next custom project.
Choose from wheels with a barrel polished or MAG finish. For the latter the barrel polished wheels are finely bead-blasted to achieve a dull magnesium-like appearance.
