Vintage bikes are unrefined, simple, and rough around the edges, making them the perfect bases for custom bike building. Thunderbike has been busy working on a custom vintage bike itself, as it rebuilt, restored, and customized a 1951 Harley-Davidson EL Pan Head.

Thunderbike began by completely stripping the frame and body, and draping it in a matte black undercoat. Over this base coat are highlights of orange and white, also in a matte finish. The paint and striping was completed by Kruse Design. This gives the bike a modern look while retaining its vintage feel. The vintage, single-rider, custom seat was built by Maas Sitz Leder.

On the front and rear, this custom Harley EL features TB Vegas wheels wrapped in Firestone rubber. Next to each rim, you get a K-tech brake disc to help bring this vintage bike to a halt much faster than its factory drum brakes could.

Mounted to the frame is a 74-cubic-inch, twin cylinder Pan Head motor. This motor has been fully gutted and rebuilt to the original factory specifications and all of the brightwork has been recoated in nickel. This twin-cylinder powerplant features an S&S Super E fuel system, S&S manifold, TB Classic air filter, and a TB flying pan Spezial exhaust system that is coated in matte black.

Driving the power to the rear wheel is a belt-to-chain-drive system, mixing a little bit of the old and new. Thunderbike has yet to release a price on this custom bike, but we’re pretty confident that it’ll range somewhere between expensive and completely outrageous. What we do know is that this bike looks completely awesome and is currently available in Germany.

The Harley-Davidson Sportster XL1200 Custom is as all-American as any bike can get. Built for the long and winding roads of the country, this custom cruiser was designed with the idea of being an all-around companion for the most ardent of riders.

A wide front end and chunky 16" tire gives the new Harley-Davidson Sportster 1200 Custom a strong and contemporary stance. It features plenty of all the trademark Harley amenities, including new wheels, a pull-back handlebar, and a reshaped LED tail lamp. All these elements give the Sportster 1200 Custom an exciting new look that should be an eye candy to a lot of riders. The headlamp offers a reshaped classic Sporter "eyebrow" look while the taillight comes with a new shape that features a bright, low-maintenance LED element. The pull-back handlebar, a critical piece of Harley’s design engineering, is mounted on a curved riser that likewise incorporates an LED warning light display. The bike is then finished off with a pair of chrome, 5-Spoke cast aluminum wheels on the front and rear and wrapped in Michelin Scorcher “31” tires.

In terms of powertrain, the Sportster 1200 Custom is far from a push-over, thanks to a mighty and rubber mounted 1200cc Evolution V-Twin powertrain with Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI) and mated to a five-speed transmission and a dual staggered exhaust system.

On top of all of its features, the Sportster 1200 Custom also comes with an H-D1 factory customization, a new opportunity that allows the customer to choose from seven option categories to optimize fit, function and style. By selecting from available factory-installed wheels, handlebars, seats, paint, foot control position, security system, and engine finish, the customer can create a 1200 Custom that is a truly personalized motorcycle that oozes of power and attitude.

Some bikes are made to thrill while others are made to shrill. The Harley-Davidson Sportster XL1200N Nightster is both - and a whole lot more.

Ever since its introduction in 2007, the Nightster model has prowled the streets with a deep, menacing growl. Its low, dark, and aggressive, and its styling has brought back some serious attitude to Harley’s Sportster family. With chopped front and rear fenders, a side-mounted license plate, a low 25.3" seat height, old-school front fork gaiters, and raw-boned graphics, the Sportster Nightster has become the ideal no-nonsense cruiser bike Harley-Davidson fans have come to love.

Other design details of the Sportster Nightster include a chopped front fender with black brackets and lightening holes, a chopped rear fender with black supports, black fork sliders and fork gaiters, a Sportster Classic solo seat, a black headlamp body with a black visor and satin trim ring, a low-rise handlebar and black riser, and a new pair of laced steel wheels with chrome spokes and black hubs.

What makes the Sportster Nightster all the more impressive, apart from its design, is its performance capabilities. To ensure that the Nightster upholds its bad-ass reputation, Harley fitted the bike with a rubber-mounted 1200cc Evolution V-Twin powertrain with an Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI) system and mated to a five-speed transmission.

Unlike the rest of Harley’s family of models, the Nightster has been around for a little over four years. But in that time, it has become one of the most sought-after cruisers on the market, mainly because it’s stealthy look matches well with the customer’s need for a powerful and versatile cruiser.

The engine is capable of delivering 92 lb/ft of torque, providing enough meat and grinds power to make other bikes of its class envious. Making it more impressive for the Dyna Fat Boy is that its engine has been mated to a six-speed Cruise Drive transmission, making that ride that much more impressive.

When Harley-Davidson designed the 2012 Dyna FXDF Fat Bob, they had one clear-cut mission in mind: to make the bike as fat and meaty as possible. Thanks to an aggressive neo-retro style and a spectacularly powerful engine, the American bike maker managed to exceed even their own lofty expectations.
