A good name for a custom bike that a Lumberjack will not turn down. The actual work of a Lumberjack was difficult, dangerous, intermittent, low-paying, but the men built a traditional culture that celebrated strength, masculinity and confrontation with danger… Does it make you think of the life of a custom motorcycle builder? With this Harley Sportster project , Guillaume Drapier from French shop Comete Motorcycles follows the traditional business model of all custom builders who know that it will be difficult for them to make a living just by building one-off bikes. Build the custom bike that people want to sell the parts used to create it.
You guessed it. The Lumberjack promotes the bolt-on parts that the shop created. I list the most interesting ones and it doesn’t matter if you intend to ride or not the muddy roads. They can be used in many custom applications on many styles of bikes. 1- A coil and contact relocation kit with a left side mount speedometer. 2- A stock headlight bracket in a raised position to remove the Sportster’s infamous original “eyebrow” headlight. 3- A 3” gas tank lift. 4- A shock sidmount plate (with taillight (this one is French size) 4- A solo seat kit including the leather seat, the base plate cover and the hinge. 5- A machined aluminum time cover. 6- A front turn signal relocation bracket. In his catalog Drapier is referencing more than 100 custom parts, mostly for Harley Sportster & Dyna applications.To see them visit Comete Motorcycles. By the way, Lumberjack is for sale.
