Steel Heavy Duty Harley-Davidson

Another top bike from Brisbane

MATHEW STEELE is out on the road most weekends and loves the ride, feel and looks his custom gets. The 106-cubic-inch engine delivers the perfect blend of horsepower and torque, while the Harley-Davidson Softail frame gives the smooth ride and handling characteristics that you want from a custom of this caliber.

People I would like to especially thank: Steve Smith, the head mechanic at Heavy Duty Motorcycles whose custom work and attention to detail is second to none; and the rest of the crew at Heavy Duty Motorcycles for making the dream come true; and Mark Walker at Queensland Motorcycle Panel and Paint for the excellent paint job.
