Hardcore Twin Cam Harley-Davidson

“Originally, I built this bike to be ridden and enjoyed on the street, not hidden away.”

I BUILT this bike a few years back. Ended up selling it to my mate, Mick. He used it as a display in his Man Cave to show off to his mates. I built this bike to be ridden and enjoyed on the street, not hidden away. The build involved getting a rigid frame, a Hardcore 2 Santee frame. Santee has been in the game since 1964 and know what they’re doing with their frames.

I had a 96-cube Twin Cam engine and added a S&S carb and BDL Twin-Cam-to-Evo style ignition which eliminated a shit load of wiring.

The S&S air filter and Kuryakyn skull air-cleaner cover with Santee drag pipes take care of the breathing side of things. I used a Power Commander module to control the engine. The gearbox is a Harley-Davidson five-speed.

I wanted a minimalistic look for the seat and the LePera Barebones did the job there. To go with the minimalistic theme, I threw on a neat little custom fuel tank and flush mount cap.

There was lots of custom fabrication throughout the bike including bars, rear guard and guard stays, Dakota digital gauge and mount set-up.

The wheels used were a Harley-Davidson Smoothie 21-inch front and a 200-wide spoked on the back.

A real blingy paint job with murals was out of the question so a pretty basic style was chosen with a little bit of detail here and there.

I’d like to thank Bird from Bird’s Bitz for his help with parts for the build and Holga from Zap Electrics for the wiring job. Also I would like to thank Rod and Jessie for the photoshoot.
