Harley Davidson Nightster Custom

OTOMOTIF.ORG - Renegade Customs is my little Custom-Company based in Uster, in the State of Zurich in Switzerland. Next to my regular job, I make rough and raw "every-day-bikes" with the concept of "reducing to the max". I build no showbikes, just renegades!

This time I took a 1200cc HD Sportster and made a WW2-Style Cafe-Racer. Big engine with the feeling of a warplane, makes the driver a smile all the time. A little pull and the brap goes on. The unnecessary parts are of course removed, no passenger and no plastic, just engine, leather and steel!

Thanks to the Ohlins-Rear-Shocks you can sit higher and can take the curves till touchdown. K&N-Filter and the 2-1 Zard-Exhaust (Italy) increase the power and the sound. One thing is for sure, this makes this bike look more cool than design produced by the manufacturer.

The Fehling Dragbar, the Rizoma (Italy) Grips, and the new leather-seat makes you feel like on your fav chair. The small motogadget speedometer is still in a good view and shows all you need. And with the withwall-tires you are the eyecatcher on the streets!
