Custom Harley Sportster Seventy Two


7COMETENothing wrong with custom bikes using only bolt-on parts. When these parts are the right ones… Except a small modification of the factory 2.1 gallon fuel tank, it follows the look that nods to chopper custom motorcycles of the 70’s with a touch of Japanese influence (ape hangers from Easyriders Japan, solid chrome wheels, trumpet mufflers, Firestone ribbed tires) Built by Comete Motorcycles it is a promo motorcycle to feature their most recents proprietary parts.

8COMETE6COMETEThey include:

• Velocity Stack with K&N Filter for all CV and Injection HD’s
• Grips in aluminium billet for all cable throttle HD’s
• Foot pegs in billet aluminum
• Headlight grille for HD new generation 5″ 3/4 headlights.
• Gaz cap in billet aluminum for late model Hd’s
• Full leather solo seat kit for Sportsters 2004 and up.
• Time cover – all Sportster

    Never felt bad for a motorcycle before.

    “Nothing wrong with custom bikes using only bolt-on parts -”

    IMHO -YES- there absolutely is.

    What purpose is served by a shop doing at home level bolt on bs and then passing it on as “custom” ??

    I call these things “Weekenders” (my take off from NT Times advertising). Wait for the UPS truck and spend a week bolting on do-dads while all the time being in mortal fear that a do-dad doesn’t fit. Yuck.
    Are we down that far in our expectations of meaningful work ?

    IMHO there is nothing wrong with this motorcycle. It looks better than stock and most anyone could do it at home with basic hand tools. There is a market for it. Then again I never met a motorcycle I didn’t like.

    DR. Harms. I disagree with you 100%. Any motorcycle modified in any way from its stock appearance is customized. Not everybody wants (for different reasons including resale value) or can (financially) refabricate a motorcycle. Bolt-on parts have their own purpose and limited objective. Even top custom builders bolt-on some custom parts on their most radical creations. Let people decide how much they want their bikes personalized. It’s called freedom. And all these bolt-on parts support bike builders, shops and the overall industry.

    “it is a promo motorcycle to feature their most recents proprietary parts”. – This was stated in the intro so the comments about it not being a true ‘custom’ have totally missed this statement and the whole point of the exercise.

    How can anyone not say that its not a nice looking Sportie? Nice is nice! A Custom Show Winner and a Buid from many a Talented Builder, fabricater it is not. But you know that Bolt on Stick on Guys like me can do this Bike, I like that, so does my Credit Card Company, so does my Local Accessorie Stores and so does the Sponsors of the Local Showa and Bars. Bikes like this make their Owners Proud. Bikes like this get Trophies at the Little Shows. These are the things that make Cucle Owners want to take their knowledge and Experience to the next level. That make all of these Spotie Dudes possible Custom Owners one day. Great to see Cyril display these kind of Bikes and Accessories. To All you Bolt On Bashers go take your Ideas form this Bike and integrate into your CUSTOM BUILDS!

    I like it with the exception of the tires. I think there is a John Deere tractor somewhere missing it’s front tires.

    ,,,and why do people continue to put those types of seats on Sportsters? It kills the flow with that air gap under it. Those belong on rigid frames only. Not to mention you fly off the back when you get on it.

    Big tires make a Sporty plow in the turns, so if you must why not have tractor tires in the front.

    Regardless of how it came to be, its
    very reminiscent of what used to be called a “tote-goat” or “doodle-bug”……….

    But the term “Motorcycle” doesn’t exactly spring to mind when ya first see it.


  15. 15 Big Mike Jul 5th, 2014 at 11:20 pm

    Nicker, I’m with you although I was thinking “Yerf Dog”

    Always wanted one of those. I think the Tote-goat was all wheel drive if I remember correctly.

  16. 16 Sheridan Jul 6th, 2014 at 8:49 am

    I agree with you Asphalt Squadron, sprung seats have no place on swing arm bikes, way too try hard

  17. 17 pokergolf420 Jul 7th, 2014 at 11:18 am

    Well, I kind of like the gas cap.

  18. 18 Clark Kirkendall Jul 7th, 2014 at 12:13 pm

    On the picture of the air filter/velocity stack?, there is no hose connected to the breather crossover. That will make a big oily mess, but I guess it doesn’t look cool having a functional hose running down under the frame or into the intake.

    I’d hate to feel those tires on rain grooves.

    Sprocket cover is kinda cool.

    not bad.. but the overall rake/trail with a fat front tire kill it for me.
    maybe if the rake was reduced… in my opinion would work better.
    just my .02 cents.
