Headbanger Motorcycles Hollister Bobber

If you doubted that the new Old School Bobber interpretation was also built everywhere beyond our US borders, just look at this example built by the Italian team of Giorgio Sandi and Luciano Andreoli from Headbanger Motorcycles.

And if I feature it it’s because it shows you what can be done anywhere in the world, without too many difficulties, using a Softail frame and keeping the stock engine (or in this case a Rev Tech 88″). Just install front & rear fat 130/16″ tires, a Sportster peanut gas tank, replace the horseshoe shaped oil tank, add a solo seat, run a chain via a 3″ open belt system and add a few retro looking parts like low bars and a top fender mounted taillight. Like here in the US, the Italian team built it for marketing purpose of selling it as a street legal Bobber canvas to which you can add many more customized options. And like here, the base price of this one is very close to the one ofย  a brand new 2010 stock Softail in Europe. Headbanger Motorcycles

    Very interesting to see a European builder offering a set up like this, with all the options.
    I went to the HD site to check the price of a Stock 2010 Softail, and was really surprised to see HD dont do one – cheapest softail is a Cross Bones at โ‚ฌ16,000 (only others are Rocker C, Fat Boy (& Special) and Heritage.
    I am obviously out of touch with the brand ๐Ÿ™‚

    Nice to see one with a real suspension for a change! With a bad back, no hardtails allowed!

    Softail standards are only available in the Australian & Japanese markets, but in our market, they make for a great blank canvas to base an enhanced HD build on.
    Our custom arm (Evil-Twins & Kustoms)does just that, Enhanced (don’t like using the word customizing cause it creates attention from the authority’s) Brand New Harley Davidsons which are completely rideable and reliable.
    Why re-invent the wheel, No One, But No One will ever spend the dollars that HD does on R&D, so why not build up from a proven platform……

    Peter…great thought. The over-priced custom motorcycle industry has had a rude awaking and is now forced into correcting itself with its over-priced bikes that will not sell. However, Headbanger did build a nice bike here.
