I haven’t posted a photo of a sportster in awhile after buying my Bonneville, but I still haven’t lost my love for the Harley Iron 883. Here is a stylish and rugged example I found on my trawling through the internet. I originally didn’t like the new typeface on the 2013 model as it was a little too “Son’s of Anarchy”. I preferred the minimal san serif font that Harley originally used but I think this bike has changed my mind. This one reminds me of a medieval armoured steed with the reintroduction of spoked wheels, hard tail and slimmed down seat beautifully complimenting the more gothic lettering. I really do want to ride one of these one day.
If someone knows who the builder is or who took the photograph, please let me know.
I’ve been checking out the Harley Iron 883 since it finally arrived on Australian shores a year after it was released everywhere else. A stunning and surprisingly well priced (for a Harley) bike that resonates with the rebel in us all. I believe Harley has succeeded in kindling interest from non-Harley riders with this tough bobbed out sportster. It is a far cry from some of the mobile couches that you see around. To further enhance the desirability of the sporty sportster Deus has created this mechanical vision, a fully customised 1200 Nightster, including clip-on bars and a Yamaha SR400 tank! Check out the full details from Pipeburn.
Update: Hellforleather has posted extra pics of the bike. With the rider on it, the bike actually looks better, sporting a cafe racer type position. Mixed responses from readers on the website but I like the way this Harley is being redefined.
