'The Beauty and The Beast' - Custom Harley Cafe Racer
Not all bikes are the same, and each has its own DNA that has to be considered before work can begin. The Sportster is true American bobber material. But that hasn't stopped many builders turning the Harley into a café racer. In 1200 form, the Harley Sportster has muscle: With a big V-twin engine to work with, you can really play to its visual strength and emphasize, through design, that power. This goes hand-in-hand with the Sportster's low-slung posture between the wheels.
This custom XL1200 made by Bull Cycles. Originally it was a 1995 Harley-Davidson Sportster XL1200! Bull Cycles describes Zephyr as 'The Beauty and The Beast'. The Zephyr is equipped with a S&S Sidewinder big bore stoker kit, with internals that are heavily upgraded to wring as much juice off the 1450cc power plant as possible. Check the video...
