91 Harley Davidson 883 Sportster by Blitz

91 HD Sportster customUnlike new Harley Davidson Sportster Iron 883, which was already covered in this blog, this custom 91 HD Sportster combined a lot of features of retro classic motorcycles, such as “cafe racers” and old “boardtrackers” bikes from 20th. Personally for me, it looks very similar to Moto Guzzi V7. Probably because of the red colored frame, gray fuel tank and exhaust pipes.

And it’s not surprising, because Fred Jourden and Hugo Jezegabel, owners of Blitz Motorcycle, inspired by “boardtrackers” bikes and well known lovers of famous retro motorcycles, couldn’t have created anything different.

Fuel tank Harlay Davidson customThe fuel tank was successfully replaced by an old Motoconfort tank with a nice signature. This made possible to manage a little tiny speedometer in the free space.

Custom cylinders paintingThe shiny black powder coated paint was used to give the engine covers and footpegs another look. It definitely wouldn’t be the same with the original shiny aluminium cover.

    love the design and the details – i have a 91 with a slighter fatter tank which looks great but maybe doesnt fit the tracker style – your engine colours are amazing and really lift the dull aluminium / silver cylinders and covers beautifully – the cream detailing and bars, pipe and seat are superb – well done you guys
