Harley Davidson


Bling’s Cycles

Posted on October 24, 2009 by Scott in Bobber, Classic. No Comments

Bling’s Cycles in New Jersey recently built this 1941 Harley Davidson. It was built by and for the owner of Bling’s, Bill Dodge. Bill is no newcomer to the scene, building bikes since he was sixteen and working for a reputable shop in Long Beach for 8 years. Bill builds bikes that are clean, fast, functional and simple like this bike aptly named the Nickle Knuckle after its 74 Cubic inch KnuckleHead engine. The bike is like a cross between a bobber and a dirt tracker, looking at the specs we can see why. The front end is Harley Davidson Narrow Glide, the gas tank is from an old Indian dirt bike, oil tank from a 1949 Ford Aftermarket, the rear knobby tire is a Metzler 150/70/18 and the front is a Bridgestone 23/3.00 and the beautiful paint job was done by the guys at French Kiss Kustoms. The ultra clean looking chassis is custom made by Bill and he calls it the Bling’s Cycles Choppa Killa. To see more pics of this killer bike check out the Nickle Knuckle gallery.

MC Collection

Posted on October 10, 2009 by Scott in Café Racer, Racer. No Comments

MC Collection is a museum in Stockholm Sweden showing an impressive collection of motorcycles from the 19th century until today. The exhibition represents the personal collections of Christer R Christensson and Ove Johansson. The theme for this year will be Harley-Davidson, possibly the best-known brand in the world of motorcycles. In the exhibition, they will present 20 amazing bikes from the most popular eras in HD’s history from the oldest example made in 1912 all the way to the latest model, a “V-rod” from 2008. One of our favourite bikes in the collection is this HD XR 1000 Racer by the guys at V-Twin Cycle Shop in NY (their website is still yet to launch). What a spectacular looking racer, would give my right hand to ride a few laps on that beast (might be hard with one hand though). If you do find yourself in downtown Stockholm then definitely check out this museum. To see more of the motorcycles in the MC Collection visit the gallery.

XRTT Cafe Racer

Posted on October 5, 2009 by Scott in Café Racer. No Comments
This 1750cc XRTT Harley Davidson Cafe Racer was built by Bill Nigro from American Motorcycle Parts. Bill Nigro, owner of AMCP has a long history of building some very unique custom motorcycles. Specializing in American built choppers it’s refreshing to see him build a XRTT Cafe Racer. Judging by this powerful American cross British styled beast we hope he decides to build more. Check out the AMCP gallery to see more from this legend.

Mean and Green

Posted on October 2, 2009 by Scott in Bobber, Classic. 2 comments
Hank Young came onto the scene in 2002 by turning up to Daytona Beach Biketoberfest on a bike he built called ‘The Flying Pan‘, a bike which was widely praised in the worldwide motorcycling press. In 2002, he made his “hobby” official and started Young Choppers & Hot Rods. Now Hank specializes in bringing together the vital spirits of motorcycling and hot rodding heritage with technical innovations to create timeless expressions of automotive vision to inspire and thrill us. We love this mean, low and green Harley Davidson. For more pics of this tribute to the past check out this gallery.

Wrenchmonkee HD

Posted on September 6, 2009 by Scott in Bobber, Classic. 1 Comment

The Wrenchmonkees have done it again. Creating a truly unique HD XLCH Hardtail. We love the combination of the old Husqvarna CR tank, Pirelli trials knobby tires on a HD sportster with a Monkee hardtail rear frame. Add the WM megatron pipes and custom fender and you have one friggin cool looking bike. Their motorcycles are almost worth moving to Copenhagen for (also Carlsberg beer and lego). For all the specs and more pics visit the WM site.

Found this XR1200 on Speedjunkies. It’s a AdrenlinMoto project bike that features nearly every aftermarket part they sell, and also reducing the weight of the bike by around 38kg! Adrenlin Moto now specialize in Harley XR1200 parts and accessories. If you want a list of all the parts on the bike check out this very impressive list. Also hit this sweet video showing MCNews test riding one of these pimped out XR1200’s.

Hidemo Mod Cafe

Posted on August 9, 2009 by Scott in Café Racer. 1 Comment

You don’t find many Japanese custom shops creating HD cafe racers. But Hidemo (stands for Hide Motorcycles) are doing it in exceptional style. We friggin love this Harley. The bike is named the Mod Cafe 3 which is obviously a tribute to the cafe racer and Mod scene in Britian. It even has a Quadrophenia logo. For those that weren’t mods in the 60’s, Quadrophenia is the name of British rock band The Who sixth studio album. Overall it’s a beautiful cafe racer and a great tribute to one of the greatest rock bands the world will ever see.

Led Sled Hardtail

Posted on August 8, 2009 by Scott in Bobber, Classic. No Comments
Something a little bit different. We don’t post a lot of Harley’s on Pipeburn. But we thought this HD hardtail was too good to sit idle on the desktop. It’s named the Mercury Pusher and was made by a shop in Ohio, USA called Led Sleds. They specialize in custom HD sportsters and have some amazing projects on their site. This was our pick of the bunch though. Look out for this bike on the cover of Cyclesource Magazine.

Michael Jackson’s HD

Posted on June 27, 2009 by Scott in Other. No Comments

Had enough of Wacko Jacko everywhere you look? Thought I’d jump on the bandwagon. Only a few months ago Michael Jacksons 2001 Harley-Davidson Touring Motorcycle (came with a free childs helmet) was auctioned off with 2000 other Neverland items. You could safely say that it would have been a good investment. There was talk that this bike appeared in his video ‘Speed Freak’ (one of the weirdest video clips) but after watching it I can say it wasn’t. Can you imagine MJ riding this bike? No i can’t either… especially now.

Lost Knuckles

Posted on June 15, 2009 by Scott in Bobber, Classic. No Comments

We have been looking at all the winners from the European Championship of Custom Bike building. Most of them are choppers but one classic caught our eye. It is a 1934 Harley Davidson Knucklehead that has been totally rebuilt by a German shop called Classic Bikes (doesn’t sound very German). We love how they have kept the heart and soul of this classic. For more pics and details click here.
