Legal Kustom Sportster

Lightning Rod MotorcyclesThe “Trackster” featured here is still 100% Harley-Davidson regarding the frame, engine and transmission, all kept stock for reliability and serviceable by official H-D dealers. A lot of money saved and a lot of troubles associated with some radical custom bikes are avoided. At the same time, with a few modifications and the choice of the right quality custom parts, the result looks and feels like an expensive radical custom when in fact the final price is quite reasonable. Stretching the swingarm by 4″, shop owner Steve Carr already “moved” the Sportster from the stock to the radical custom status. It’s now 8 feet long from tip of tire to tip of tire. The high quality custom parts list include: a Paughco Springer front end 2″ under, Paughco Speedster bars on which Harley hand controls and mirrors were re-installed with the addition of a pair of vintage grips, a pair of 23″ wheels (26″ is also possible), a Led Sled rear fender, a Biltwell bobber solo kit and seat, a new wrapped exhaust (model Nightmarez) from Pipe Dreamz, a High Flow breather kit (Big Sucker) from Alen Ness, Toxico calipers with brake mounts from Fab Kevin, a speedo relocation kit from Joker Machine. The Trackster keeps all D.O.T. required Lights, signals and Speedo. And of course a custom paint job by David in Panama City (gas tank is original factory).
