Harley Oldschool Bobber


Life’s a bitch. Thank God there’s Harleys.

A Harley Oldschool Bobber is not built in a factory. She’s built in a shed or in a garage, next to the house. By ordinary people, like us.

This is the story of two guys who share a love for Harley Davidson motorcycles. They both own Harley Davidson Evolution motorcycles, which look great, run great, and sound great. But I guess great was just not enough.

After lots of get togethers, lots of talking shop, lots of checking out greasy V2 magazines, and after all the options to improve and personalize their Evo’s had been taken out (and after just as many boxes of beer. ) the decision was taken: They wanted something really awesome!

So the idea was born. They were going to create their own mean street machine. It had to be an Oldschool or a Bobber, or something in between. Like an Oldschool Bobber .

And the V-twin engine had to be the one with the roughest toughest jawbreakin’ loudest and meanest sound of all:

So after some looking around, and with just a little help from their friends, in April 2008 LT found right what they needed: an unrestored 1973 Harley XLH Ironhead Sportster . with the right frame, the right engine, in a reasonable state, at the right price, and ready for restoration and rebuilding.

Not Much Going On?

To the contrary, a lot’s been going on during the months of June thru August 2009! It’s just that we’ve come into a phase where the type of work we’ve been doing on the bike takes a bit longer to finish or is not really suitable for showing on a webpage. Like the design development of the oil tank, for example.

In our minds, the choice of Harley tank logo plays an important role in the overall impression that we aim to create.
