In their small shop of DP Custom Cycles in New River, Arizona, the Del Prado bothers (Jarred and Justin) build bikes for for the working’ man. What they love to build usually doesn’t start from the ground up but as stock motorcycles that they love to turn into practical old school hot rods. Forget about chrome, billet wheels and anything bling. Their customs are titled donors, mostly Harley Ironheads & Evo’s, so all are easy to register and ride. Customization process is always a mix of restoring some original parts while adding their own one-off pieces and original designs.
The “Naked Cafe” featured here is based on a classic ’80 Harley Ironhead, 1000cc and take some inspiration from the 2011 Le Mans winning Audi R18 TDI. Result is a very light racer looking bike, with very good proportions, lines and symmetry and the raw appeal that 70’s English Cafe Racers had. You would be surprised how affordable their bikes are. This one is sold, but you can drool on others at their DP Custom Cycles Website
