Ever had one of those dreams where you feel like you really need to do something, but somehow you never manage to? Maybe it’s a place you have to be or a task you have to complete. Whatever the case, the harder you try in the dream the more unlikely you’ll be to make any progress. And in the end you’ll wake up with an incredible sense of frustration. Got the idea? Well, now you know how we feel about this scene. It’s one we first laid work on in 2008 and we’ve literally spent eight years trying to get our hands on it. And now we’re here for presenting our new latest build, it’s THE SOLDIER, built from scratch used a 2002 Harley Davidson Sportster XL883 engine.
For the first, we made a rolling chassis like WLA model as a designed, this frame made more lower and also give more space for wheelbase to accentuated the strong impression. We choose seamless Pipe 1.25” and 1” with 3 mm width for chassis material. In the front suspension, we used a handmade springer with WLA model matched with spoke wheel 16 x 3.00 inch for front and 16 x 3.5o inch for rear to emphasize the oldskool style. For the tires, we choose Avon Safety Mileage MK2 for front and rear. After we’ve done with chassis and suspension, and then we continued to make all body parts, with galvanize plate 1.2 mm for gas tank, oil tank and rear fender based on a concept. After the bodywork was done, Komet Studio made his move! We choose doff green from Dupont and decorated with a white star at the side of the tank. We put two caps at the top for fuel and engine oil. An engine we finished it a doff-black with powder-coating and polishing chrome worked for primary cover and ignition cover. Completed the project, Khrome Werkz handlebar was selected to provide ‘the enjoyment of riding’. Jute headlights was attached at triple tree and custom exhaust 2 in 2 was made to drag up the classic theme with a strong sound.
All up, it’s one hell of a Harley Davidson Sportster XL883 build and we’re more than a little excited to see what our next build produces. Welcome THE SOLDIER!
