February Bike Of The Month
Once again RSD nails it. Our seat completed the build of a Sportster following the simplistic lines of the bike. This solo seat really achieved a look of "tight tolerances" from our fiberglass seat pan. We topped it off with our unique foam shaping so while this seat may look like little to nothing, there is still comfort. We featured a perforated leather insert with the horizontal pleating. The outer band has a unique accent of color with the gold stitching to match the gold pin striping on paint.
Our fully faired sportster project is something we have been wanting to do for a while. Of all the builds we’ve done we’ve never put a fairing on a Harley. This will be our first and we have grown to really like it. There are many difficulties to be faced when getting a Sportster “faired”. Mainly there’s the height of the stock sporty and the front fork. Most faired bikes are bit shorter in the front end so we’ve had our work cut out to make it look right. There’s also the fairing choice. Rather than go with an old dustbin fairing or a classic HD KRTT road race fairing we want to something a little more modern that still had a taste of vintage. Our Super Single Fairing kit seemed to fit the bill perfectly. We used the Upper and lower and modified it to fit. Made mounts, cut it up a bit and glued her back together. We're still contemplating a few of the lines so she doesn’t look like her nose is in the air, but we'll get to that. Stainless exhaust has been routed using the Vance and Hines XR pipe as a base and we are off to the races so they say.
