Custom Sportster XL1200 6

Another great piece of work from Donny Ariyanto of Studio Motor, the rockstar builder from Indonesia. From a design perspective, you just like it or not. But from an objective perspective, this custom Harley XL1200 is something special. Unlike most custom bikes we see these days, this is not based on a factory-model. Most builders pick a certain base bike and customize it their way. But not this machine. This bike was build from scratch. The only turn key element of this machine is the Harley XL1200 engine (2006). From front to rear: almost every part of this bike was build from scratch. The bike literally started off as empty sheets, straight pipes and bare metal plates. Donny’s goal was to deliver a bike exactly as his customer wanted it. A true unique, one-off bike. The challenge with true uniqueness is that you just have to create everything yourself.

Some words of Donny:

For the first, we made a rolling chassis with hardtail model as a designed with boardtrack style, this frame made more lower and also give more space for wheelbase to accentuated the strong impression. We choose seamless pipe 1.25” and 1” with 3.2 mm width for chassis material. In the front suspension, we made a classic strong girder front end and matched with TK Japan Rims 19 x 2.50 inch for front and 19 x 2.5o inch for rear to emphasize the slim boardtrack style. For the tires, we choose Metzeler Marathon 100/90-19 for front and rear. After we’ve done with chassis and suspension, and then we continued to make all body parts, with galvanize plate 1.2 mm for gas tank, oil tank and rear fender based on a concept. After the bodywork was done, Komet Studio made his move! We choose classic white from Sikkens. After painted was done decorated all body with a patina technique red and silver lines and put classic Harley Davidson font at the side tank by our nice partner, 69 Nerakatau. An engine we painted it a doff-black with powder-coating painting techniques. Completed the project, handmade handlebar was selected to provide ‘the enjoyment of riding’. Jute Classic headlights was attached at triple tree and custom exhaust 2 in 2 was made to drag up the classic theme with a strong sound.

This is not Donny’s first “Harley from scratch”, check out this bike I’ve featured earlier.
