Custom motorycle is a new thing for Verdika Griya Purnama, but when he tried to enjoy it directly settled on a stock-engine that isn’t usually done by a people who are new to this field. “I think, it doesn’t show its best if we use a small engine, we’d selected the best direct cylinder engine that has a big, so we can enjoy it any longer…”, so he said during a discussion to choose a machine that will be used in his first project. Thorough discussion on the concept of Bro Verdi desire, finally, we choose to build based from 2005 Harley Davidson Sportster XL1200R engine. Deliberately chosen because its easy-to-use material has become an absolute requirement for Bro Verdi.
Beginning of the process is focused on building the total framework to suit the desired concept by Bro Verdi, made by relying on 1 Inch seamless pipe material the framework design made by reference of Softail chassis style.

Round rubber selected 4.00-19 Firestone Deluxe Champion to pursue a classic look at this bike later. For the rear suspension we used HD Softail shock for reduce the suspension maximally. Just like the front, a set of original HD Sportster rim with 16X3.00 Inch dimensions combined with paired 5.00-16 Firestone Deluxe Champion as a requested from Bro Verdi.
