customized Harley-Davidson Sportster XL 1200 X Forty-Eight

 

Full of nice details

 

Three bold highlights set the scene for our customer’s Forty-Eight: the custom tank, the swinging rear fender and the exclusive paint job. With a few brass components that fit the concept, we have turned the Sportster into a very coherent oldschool bobber. Nothing disturbs this look. The chrome parts of the Sportster were eleminated by powder coating and other needed parts were selected in the respective black version.

Grandmaster Kruse achieved the vintage look with a rich dark brown and gold accents with an intricate used effect. We enhanced the look with the handles and detents from our Brass series and the patina air filter cover from the matching H-D Collection.

The individual tank comes from the XL 1200 C (Sportster Custom). It is the largest Sportster tank and has given us enough clearance to let this mirror  in the sides.

For the slim rear we shortened the frame, built a swinging fender and the struts ourselves, moved the license plate incl. lighting to the side and put tiny turn signals on the struts. The leather saddle with Thunderbike logo fits as well as the whitewall tires from Metzeler in original size ( 130 v., 150 h.) on the original 16 inch rims. The lowering we achieve here with the short shock absorbers (290 mm) from Progressive Suspension.

At the front we installed our short GRP fender and gave the fork black covers for the beefier look. Harley’s Hollywood handlebars, at 90 centimeters, are the appropriate size to steer the Sporty, because it’s not just a visual treat: We treated the air-cooled V2 to the DON performance mapping to go with the all-black exhaust and Screamin’ Eagle air filter.
So nothing stands in the way of a stylish appearance with an appropriate sound.

Normally, both your asses would be dead as fucking fried chicken, but you happen to pull this shit while I’m in a transitional period so I don’t wanna kill you, I wanna help you. But I can’t give you this case, it don’t belong to me. Besides, I’ve already been through too much shit this morning over this case to hand it over to your dumb ass.
