Rusty Rose



The role model for this bike was our Forester, which we also built based on the Sportster Forty-Eight. Their design of this bobber is sporty, noble and vintage at the same time: dark green paint with golden and red pinstripes in vintage look, plus some nice brass elements. With shorter shock absorbers, solo saddle and wide handlebars have made this Sporty suitable for our customer.

Not only optically, the Sporty has gained a lot in some more places: The power air cleaner provides better ventilation and the exhaust system by Dr. Jekill & Mr. Hyde blows decently out of the short black mufflers. Both are subtly chic in silky matt black and the air filter has a custom-made brass finish. The precious metal reappears on grips and pegs and can also be found as a golden pinstripe on the paint parts.

Rear and front were slimmed down with short fenders made of GFK and small, inconspicuous turn signals. With shorter shock absorbers, the Thunderbike leather swinging saddle with embossed Thunderbike Cross logo and the 90 centimeter wide Hollywood handlebars, we fitted the bike to our customer. The front turn signals are hidden under the grips from our Brass series.

An optical focus is on the (orig.) wheels: The eye-catching white wall tires make the nice look of this Forty-Eight round.
