Night Star. A New Harley Sportster Japanese Style.

During the last 10 years the worldwide custom motorcycle industry has observed, learned how to respect, admired and even has began to imitate the Japanese style of custom building. Japanese builders living and working in the US, others traveling to the US and Europe to show their creations and magazine reports on Japanese shops and bike shows have all contributed together to make the Japanese style one of the most popular trends of our industry.

Although at its best when applied on classic and vintage motorcycles, the Jap style of designing a motorcycle works also very well on new bikes when the objective is to give them an old school appearance. For this purpose, Japanese builders have created new parts now distributed by companies like CCI & West Eagle in the US, CCE & W&W in Europe and a few other companies. In East Asia, the Easyriders Store has a very large catalog of new “old school” parts to give many Harley models the  Japanese touch.

As example, this “Night Star” Sportster featuring some of their most interesting custom parts. A 39 mm 5-Degree Rake drilled black anodized triple tree, a Low Down Rear Suspension, Narrow Bobber High Bar, Ape Hangers, Custom Narrow Risers, a Vortex EFI Air Cleaner Kit, an Eluxe Single Gunfighter Seat, Drilled Polished Headlight, Short Front Fender And Bobber Style Rear Fender, etc… Complete catalog in English at Easyriders Japan Products. Distributors in your country at Easyriders Japan Dealers.

    Not bad I was just expecting something from Chica Cycles so I disappointed myself

    To say HD looks down at the metric market, it funny how revenue loss is making them respect japan. Really? This is once again a BS campaign from the falling motoring company.

    BSM, apart from building the bike this custom is based on, exactly how was HD involved in this? Your comment about a “BS campaign from the falling (sic) motoring company” seem quite erroneous.

    Duncan McDonald (formerly of Lucky Charm Choppers) did that to a set of narrow glide trees about 5 years ago and then I copied his lead and did a set for a Shovel of mine that was feautured in numerous publications as was Duncan’s 66 slabside..not taking anything away from this bike but as with most custom pieces it’s been done before.

    Rake looks good and the bars comfy.

    The bike would look much better with broomstick handle bars and the exhaust pipes running higher…like just above the swing arm pivot and the length almost to the rear shock.

    Just my $.02
