We like every bike came from us and featured in this website. From bobbers, brats, café racers, scramblers and flattracks of questionable practicality there’s always something of merit in our design and execution that warrants a closer look. But there’s a special place in our heart for medium engine-based bikes built with a singular purpose in mind. So today, here’s a real treat – a gorgeous, beautifully thought-out and immaculately crafted 2015 Harley Davidson XG500 Cafe Bobber designed, built by us for one of our customer and he need something special for his bike.
Starting with the frame, we removed the original sub frame and make way for flat and line with a handmade custom gas tank, custom version we designed and built, scaled with only a single rider in mind. Then converted the original rear shock to a 340 mm Ohlins Progressive rear shock. Up front we have mounted a set of Ohlins Upside Down forks to really improve handling and the outdated original wheels have been replaced with Spoke Wheels 16X3.50 and 16X4.00 Inch and wrapped in Coker Beck 5.00-16 for front and rear. To update the bikes braking performance we then mounted Brembo twin calipers at the front and a single Nissin caliper at the rear. Here comes the bodywork, a gastank, side cover and tiny rear fender with a minimalist style made from 1.2 mm galvanized material. After the bodywork was done, Komet Studio made his move! We choose solid broken white from Sikkens and decorated with a candy red and gold brown simply line. Completing the last project, Rizoma handlebar was selected to provide ‘the enjoyment of riding’. The Aftermarket headlight was attached at the front. HP Corse dual end muffler and custom 2 in 2 exhaust was selected to drag up the classic theme with a strong sound.
You can see this bike now. Drop in, say hi and try not to get any drool on the bikes. We proud it that this Harley Davidson XG500 got THE RUNNER UP tittle on American Stock Kustom Class at 5th Annual Kustomfest – October 2016. Bravo!! and welcome THE STREET JUNKIE.
