This Custom Harley-Davidson Sportster Bobber Is The Perfect Partner For The Ford GT40

This Custom Harley-Davidson Sportster Bobber Is The Perfect Partner For The Ford GT40

It won’t win you the LeMans like the Ford GT40, but it will surely turn heads in your next HOG meet

Right from the stunning LeMans-winning Ford GT40 to McLaren’s F1 racer in 2021, many cars have rocked the iconic Gulf livery and made headlines with it. However, one place where this livery is yet to make a mark is in the motorcycle world which leaves us (enthusiasts) with nothing but our imagination. Luckily, though, Lord Drake Kustoms has come to the rescue and prepared a bamboozling custom Harley-Davidson Sportster donning the Gulf Oil colors. Here’s a look at it.

2020 - 2022 Indian Scout Bobber Twenty

2020 - 2022 Indian Scout Bobber Twenty

It’s got an old-school bobber look with a modern ride

With its recent success on the Flat Track circuit and burgeoning footprint in the worldwide market, it’s easy to forget that Indian Motorcycle is actually America’s oldest bike manufacturer, and the marque reminds us of its deep roots with the new Scout Bobber Twenty model. This bike takes us right back to the custom bikes of the early 1900s with bobbed sheet metal, blackout treatment, and laced wheels on a modern chassis that mimics the geometry of the old-school hardtail bikes. A modern V-twin delivers 100 ponies for your riding pleasure, and ABS protection is available on all the colorways to deliver some modern safety as well.

2022 Indian Chief Bobber

2022 Indian Chief Bobber

Indian brings us a Chief Bobber in its 100-years-of-Chief celebration

Indian Motorcycle is celebrating the 100th anniversary of its iconic Chief family line, and part of that party belongs to the new Chief Bobber that’ll bring to mind the gassers of yesteryear. Old school lines join with early performance tinkering to give the Bobber a charm all its own even while it makes connections to models from Indian’s own rich history. The Thunder Stroke engine ties it all together with its faux-flathead construction that turns in a thoroughly modern performance that will serve you well in the urban jungle of your choice.

2016 - 2022 Yamaha Bolt R-Spec / Bolt C-Spec

2016 - 2022 Yamaha Bolt R-Spec / Bolt C-Spec

The performance bobber with an attitude

The Bolt from Yamaha’s Star cruiser line is a cool little bobber-style bike with its high tank, short wheelbase, and solo seat. It’s a nice around town bike — lightweight and agile — and naked with real-steel sheet metal, so it just begs you to customize it. What could be better? Enter the Bolt’s siblings, the dressier Bolt R-Spec and the café racer Bolt C-Spec. The Spec duo are every bit as snappy and fun to ride as the Bolt, but with some upgrades, both hardware and cosmetic. Powered by the air-cooled 942 cc V-twin engine, the Specs are in the same size slot as the Bolt: not too small that you’ll outgrow it right away and not so big to be overwhelming for new riders. At just a few bills more than the Bolt, they’re worth a look.

2021 - 2022 Triumph Bonneville Bobber

2021 - 2022 Triumph Bonneville Bobber

With comprehensive updates to the engine, suspension, and brakes

Triumph updated its Bonneville Bobber platform ahead of MY2021 with a number of improvements. Brake and suspension components were spruced up, along with a larger fuel tank and the extra range it brings. The engine itself is cleaner than ever and it spools up faster than ever for a double whammy in the drivetrain, plus the suspension and brake components come off a higher shelf to finish the practical changes. New paint packages and expanded blackout treatment gives this year-model a unique look, in spite of Triumph’s efforts to channel the soul of a decades-old design.

2022 Indian Chief Bobber Dark Horse

2022 Indian Chief Bobber Dark Horse

Channeling the spirit of the post-war motorcycle scene

Indian subjects its new Chief platform to the homegrown-custom treatment to turn out the new Chief Bobber Dark Horse. Liberal blackout treatment adds another spice to the already custom-flavored Bobber as it seeks to connect to the homejob bikes of old. In spite of its attempt to channel the antique, the factory packs in lots of the modern with its Thunder Stroke 116 engine and under-the-hood electronic wizardry that promise to help you keep the thing dirty-side down.

2017 - 2020 Triumph Bonneville Bobber

2017 - 2020 Triumph Bonneville Bobber

It has a retro-appeal all its own

A 1,200 cc plant pushes the classic-looking frame on the new-from-2017 Triumph Bonneville Bobber. Much like Harley-Davidson’s Softail, it comes built to look like an old hard-tail. The result is a modern ride with very deep roots traceable back to the Speed Twin 5T of the late ’30s. There are plenty of other little historical touches here and there, and though this is no replica piece, it can serve as a sort of rolling museum.

2018 - 2022 Indian Scout Bobber - Performance, Price, and Photos

2018 - 2022 Indian Scout Bobber - Performance, Price, and Photos

It’s a bare-bones bike. When you ride, it’s just you and the machine.

Indian Motorcycle has certainly called some attention to its mid-size bikes through its success on the flat track, and the Scout Bobber looks to capitalize on that by garnering some of the factory-custom business. The “Bobber” brings modern performance to the table along with the overall look of the iconic bobber style, yet fits in well with the rest of the made-for-the-US market, foreign and domestic built.

Indian expands the Scout lineup into the under-$10k category

Indian Motorcycle treats us to a mid-year release with its new, stripped-down Scout Bobber Sixty. Crisp and clean, the Scout Bobber Sixty rolls with the essentials plus some minimally-intrusive safety electronics, all powered by the proven, 78-horsepower “Sixty” plant. Blackout is the word of the day for the Scout Bobber Sixty as it expands the Scout lineup into the less-than-$10k territory.

2018 - 2020 Harley-Davidson Street Bob

2018 - 2020 Harley-Davidson Street Bob

Risen from the ashes of the Dynas, the Street Bob was rebuilt and reintroduced as a Softail

The Harley-Davidson lineup underwent some serious changes in MY2018, and the chopped-down, Dyna-based Street Bob was rebuilt and reintroduced as a Softail model. Not only did it switch to Harley’s faux-rigid style frame, but the frame itself was completely reinvented to the point where it bears little resemblance to the original that saw the light of day for the first time back in ’84. Sure, it still has that classic Softail visage, but the factory achieved it in a totally different way this time, and any perceived similarities are only skin deep. To add to the revamp, the Street Bob was on the receiving end of a beating-heart transplant with the addition of the then-new-to-cruisers, Milwaukee-Eight 107 powerplant that brings over 100 pounds of grunt to the table. The Street Bob has more power, new frame, and a new family/model combination as it rolls through to 2020.

2018 - 2021 Harley-Davidson Softail Slim

2018 - 2021 Harley-Davidson Softail Slim

It’s post WWII-Era bobber styling on a modern power-cruiser

Harley-Davidson and the custom-bike culture have always gone hand-in-hand, and the updated-in-2018 Softail Slim makes for a rolling tribute to both. The Slim rides on the same, newly-revamped frame as the rest of the fake-hardtail family for the unmistakable geometry and dated look that you just can’t get from a traditional swingarm. Bobbed fenders and blackout paint tie right into the custom trends of yesteryear quite nicely, but it’s the 107 cubic-inch Milwaukee-Eight V-Twin and its 100-plus pounds of torque that drives the Slim past “historical-tribute” turf right into viable power-cruiser territory. Since the whole point of the original bobbers was to provide a more thrilling ride, I find this pairing of power and panache to be entirely fitting.
