Custom Harley-Davidson Cross Bones. Petrali Style.

Last weekend in London, The Ace Cafe Motorcycle & Custom Show (affiliated with the AMD European Championship Of Bike Building) had quite a few very cool bikes on display. In the “Modified Harley-Davidson Class” and although it was not the winner, I like this bike called the “24” because it’s the best custom “Harley Cross Bones” I have ever seen. It was (re)built by Charlie Stockwell the head of the Performance & Custom Shop of Warr’s London, Europe’s oldest official Harley-davidson dealership. Stripped from its “ornaments” and rebuilt with 23″ spoke wheels, a nickel plated twin cam motor, a new “naked” body work and down swept bars, it has a strong Joe Petrali style and would look even better shot on the Salts of Utah. A custom job that many could approach without spending a fortune… Warr’s Harley-Davidson

    And why the MoCo doesn’t build its bikes right out of the factory?

    And now explain me why a photographer should not make money with his photography. It’s the way all photographers make a living. No?

    New technology. Old style. Best of both worlds. Great “Harley”.

    The MoCo can’t build bikes like that out of the factory because they are illegal in every state. Looks at the lights, turn signals, fenders, etc. Not to mention certain liability issues when building bikes with minimal equipment. I like the looks however.
