Those are not twin cam rocker boxes on the orange sportster. Nice engraving though
Its always interesting to see custom work from outside the USA. Pretty little sporty with a digger-esqe vide looks the most viable.
Beat me to it, Badams 🙂 First thing I thought of was let’s find a Ness or LRT digger tank for it and off we go. Nice bike.
The Sportster manages to be a full-retro Digger and modern at the same time,it’s a good effort.That Intruder would be very fast and scare most Harley riders to death,the 1400s are very fast.
I see the engraving on P&D’s Sportster was done by Don Blocksidge. If you haven’t seen any of his work before, it’s worth checking out. He’s been doing custom work for at least four decades now, having originally been apprenticed to UK gun makers Webley & Scott back in 1946!
I rode a ’76 650 Yamaha for 38,000 miles. I hated the seat, hated the vibration and it had a tough shifting tranny when hot (helped greatly by using Spectro blended oil) but loved the bike. It had that vertical twin classic profile. I sold it to a guy who chopped it. I wished I had kept it.
I rode Suzuki Intruders back in the day
For power to weight ratio there was not a bike short of a over 1000 cc sportbike
or a V-Max that could touch it . Nice to see someone do something nice with one.
the Triumph is pretty cool too
