Meet the Harley Davidson Roadster Snow Drag.

Meet the Harley Davidson Roadster Snow Drag.

A 1200 CX Roadster gets equipped with skis and snow belt to conquer the snow.

The Harley Davidson Roadster is the most sport-oriented version of the Sportster series offering an alternative to more conventional cruiser variants. This newcomer to Harley’s Sportster range may not be everyone’s cup of tea. But it is a better fit for the current market.

Now though, this roadster fell into the hands of some custom cracks and had been prepped up to become the finalist in the annual ‘Battle of the Kings’ contest. And what did they come up with to get there? A (insert a slang here) snow bike with skis belts and a mad looking electric paint job.

2014 Icon Iron Lung

2014 Icon Iron Lung

“She was an accident waiting to happen. 600 pounds of American coke fired iron, riding on weather-checked English rubber. Cracking femurs or rupturing internal organs were her specialties, and she had done so on more than one occasion. The Iron Lung, a 1991 Harley Sportster roadracer, was a vision of what never was, in response to a question that was never asked.” – This is how Icon presents its new creation, the epic Iron Lung.

This new mechanical beast was born from Icon’s desire to create a truly special motorcycle that has the look of the legendary Harley-Davidson endurance and circuit racers from the 1970s, but is mixed with modern technologies and contemporary lines.

Like you’ve probably guessed, the Iron lung is based on a standard 1991 Harley Davidson Sportster. Luckily, Icon doesn’t play when it comes to modifying motorcycles, so they’ve started their work by boosting the engine’s power. Therefore, the Sportster’s 883cc unit was upgraded using a big bore kit up to no less than 1200cc. The increased capacity was combined with a Supertrapp exhaust system so the end result should be fairly impressive.

For enhanced performances, the Iron Lung’s front end had to receive some attention to. So, apart from the custom front fairing built in house, the guys from Icon have also decided to make the entire front lower and wider. They’ve also added a new sub frame, progressive 970 shocks, fresh forks (borrowed from a Harley Davidson Wide Glide) and custom triple clamps.

If you like those tasty wheels you should know that they come from a V-Rrod, while the custom seat was created by New Church Moto and the paint job is signed by the Garage 31 team.

All in one, the bike’s design and specs are fairly catchy and if you want to see it in action hit the jump for the official video released by Icon.

Local Motors Racer

Local Motors Racer

Local Motors is a relatively new company specialized on automotive design and technology and its purpose is to create unique and innovative vehicles. A while ago, the company amazed the automotive media with its capableRally Fighter, a sporty off road vehicle powered by a 6.2-liter V-8 that goes head to head with models like the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor.

Luckily the company didn’t stop there and its newest project is a custom motorcycle named the Racer.

The new custom bike has a pretty interesting story. To start this project Local Motors organized the Custom Motorcycle Design Challenge with Justin and Jarrod Del Prado of Arizona-based DP Custom Cycles.

The challenge was to invite a wide range of designers to come up with their version of a customized 2000-2003 Harley Davidson Sportster.

More than 2,400 files were submitted for evaluation and the winner was the DP Racer designed by Andre Costa of Portugal.
