El Santo



customized Thunderbike Harley-Davidson Heritage


Once again a Heritage in Chicano style was born named Desperado. The most eye-catching is probably the painting of Chico´s Pinstriping. In general, it’s hard to imagine what the bike looked like before the reconstruction. We presented the Desperado, which is now our seventh Chicano bike, at the European Bike Week in Faak am See.

In order to perfectly fulfill the Chicano look, the front- and rear fenders were specially adapted and pulled into the deep. The fat 23″ front wheel and 18″ rear wheel in New Digger design from our production in combination with whitewall tires bring the style on the point.

Super flat for the show but still very comfortable for touring. This is the motto of our custom bikes with Air Ride. The handlebar El Toxico has a beautiful curved silhouette and was mounted with our Old Style risers. This interaction completes the project perfectly and makes the Desperado another completely harmonious and beautiful Chicano bike. Here you can get some impressions from our trip to the European Bike Week in Faak am See, Slovenia and Italy.

by the way don’t forget to help us become world champion at the Battle Of The KingsVote Now!
