Hog Killers Sweet 1976 Shovelhead


Aki Sakamoto is the owner and operator of Hog Killers, which is located in Hawaiian Gardens, Ca. Aki has been building one of a kind motorcycles since 2009 and is creating quite a name for himself. "After I graduated from MMI Phoenix, AZ, in 99', I moved back to Japan. I came back to the US in 2002 because I wanted to work for Jesse James. I worked for him for six years as a mechanic. Even though I was a mechanic, Jesse allowed me to work with the sheet metal department and R/ D department. That's where I learned a lot of stuff. I have to say that Jesse opened the door for me, and I wouldn't be where I am today without him. Nothing but big thanks to Jesse," stated Aki.

I really don't want to like that tail section, but I do. This bike is awesome about 100 different ways. Well done.

really into the engine details like the oiling system, the purple & pink with hearts not so much my flavor, but to each his own...other than my opinion it is completely top notch.

And that tail reminds my of the old HS boat rear end only this being a speed-boat rear end. Very sezzy...

Loving the split heads.

Different and cool. Exhaust is wild; would have been cool to see a close up of that muffler. Tail section looks odd with the shape of the tank to me but def something new and fresh.

Commented on 2-6-2013 At 11:47 am

The tail section rules, mighty fine work!

Commented on 2-6-2013 At 12:15 pm

Commented on 2-8-2013 At 03:07 pm

Commented on 2-8-2013 At 03:39 pm
