    Default race-inspired Sportster

    Recently finished mock-up on this race-inspired Sportster for a customer.

    I am a huge MotoGP fan, and wanted to incorporate some of that styling into the tail and pipes. Yes, I am aware that one pipe is high/long, the other pipe is low/short. Seems to bother some folks...but I think it's killer.

    Really anxious to ride this one.

    Pretty cool. You need to get rid of those shitty HD tires tho.

    and id lift eh front of the tank a little too, to get rid of the wierd sharp spot on the back, and change the tires, but that looks sweet and fun though!! i plan in doing a similar solo setup when i get another one for the wife to ride with me on. great job!

    Looks good but not 100% crazy about the front of the tank either. What are your paint plans?

    Guess I dont like putting all that heat from the one pipe at the shock chamber. Other than that I like it.

    I agree about the tank. The front needs to be lifted until the back pivots down to the frame. It doesn flow as is anyway. And i dont get the pipes. At first i thought the were uneven to keep them equal length, but then i realized that it is the longer front you extended farther then the rear pipe. If it is just to be different, i dont think it is working, i like when some pipes are pointed different, but these being on opposite sides i think would look better even

    The tail is great, not a fan of the pipes, I think an XR style set up would be cool or if they exited equally out the back it might flow better. Tank is almost there, I echo the comments of the others. You have great skills though my man. Enjoy seeing the bikes you've put up thus far.

    Nice fab work man the bike looks like a blast to ride. Now for the broken record comments, I say the tank needs some adjusting in the front to get a better body line flow. Although depending on seat choice it might look good and the pipes you're right they're not everyones cup o tea. Either way our opinions shouldn't matter to much just so long as the customer is satisfied.

    I like it! Looks like a fun bike to throw arond
    Ground clearance on a sportster, yay
    As for the "flow", whatever, once the seat is upholstered, i think what others are seeing will change.
    The Sharp tail of the tank matches the sharp tail section itself.
    Pipes look good too, I would want to lower the left/front pipe for leg burn clearance

    Haha, the rear exhaust isn't going to cook the shock. It just appears that way in pics. This ain't my first rodeo.

    I like it.
    Left side pipe is going to put a lot of heat on the paint?

    I dig the asym pipes. Might be neat to build a small heat shield for that right shock anyway. Whatever seat you do might eliminate that gap on the back of the tank too. I like that the cowl is all welded in. I've seen some of your other work, so I've got no doubt how this will turn out. Chemical Candy paint in the future?

    Personally i love it...and it will only get better with time...i guess mock up is a forgone conclusion for some folks that the bike is complete...definatley not the case with this bike more to come...appreicate the contructive criticism though....Cory has done a excellent job as usual taking some of my ideas and his combined to create the bike

    CC will not be paint this bike...not looking for the bike to sparkle...going to bring the bike to Dusold Designs with some ideas
