Harley Davidson… Scooters!

The “Topper”, powered by a 165cc two-stroke engine, was marketed as a recreational and utility vehicle, useful for fun excursions and package delivery. It even came with a sidecar option for people or cargo. The line never took off, though, and Harley-Davidson ended the experiment in 1965.

Can’t quite picture the Harley riders with their sleeveless leather vests and fingerless gloves riding through middle America on this one.

Deus Iron Harley

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.
