The Other Woman is a Harley-Davidson Sportster 11

MY BIKE, The Other Woman, was originally featured in Ozbike #399, and since the graveyard photos were taken by Top Gun Photography back in 2015, there have been a few upgrades to the bike.

I added the twin wave-lights with the blue tint glass. Why two? Well, they were cheaper to buy from Germany and just as bright as a H-D day-light; if not brighter. Also, it’s different having two. I had the lights installed and wired correctly at Harry’s Custom Bike Works who also made a custom bracket to hold them.

I replaced the skeleton-hand mirrors with skull looking ones to go with the Reaper theme.  

The blinker lenses were replaced with chrome lenses and I also changed the seat and had a Reaper embroidered into it.  

I added chrome lower-fork-tubes and stainless twisty spokes for easy cleaning as well as an aftermarket gear shift and brake pedal.

The tank has finally been finished. I had Damo change the face of the Reaper and add two Hell Hounds and a Harley-Davidson name to the sides and made my own petrol cap to finish it off.  

I fitted a spoiler and had a Hell Hound painted on that. I also got the rear fender painted with Reaper graphics and graveyard scenes with Fear the Reaper written above the new LED tail light.  

I have Damo from Zealous Airbrush Studio to thank for all the artwork on the bike over the years.

I have still left the motor stock but being dyno-tuned at ProCycle Dyno. It’s getting 85 hp and goes well. 

I take the bike to some shows and it still wins a prize now and then; the bike also appears in yearly calendars with beautiful models.  

I’d like to thank Skol for the opportunity to show off The Other Woman once again with her upgrades.
