My 1/1 Harley Davidson 96 1200  Bespoke Bobber
Here my Harley Davidson original 1200cc new bespoke build is up for sale. Which is my 22nd Harley Davidson build at Weston Town Customs.
I have built many hardtail Harley’s, and this has to be the most characterful. I built this hd with many reclaimed old parts, to complete the perfect patina . Old Knucks or Pan’s are where much of my inspiration comes from. A motorcycle that rides like new, but looks like it’s just been uncovered from a U.S barn is where my style lies.
The donor Harley used above was an original 1200cc Sportster Sport with a low 12,000 miles. The engine internals were immaculate during the strip, aqua blasting the barrels and heads, painting the barrels in VHT, then lapping and seating the original valves and seats. The barrels were coated in Redline’s engine lube to keep the bores fresh while the months pasted on while I completed the final pieces.
I have made this into a lightweight nimble Harley  stripping well  over 65KG, so if you want to ride it like a cafe racer you can do so with ease.  When I have a vision for a motorcycle build, expense is not considered. Every bike, has to be built to exceed what I’ve imagined.
The wiring loom has been to some extent been rebuilt (Working with the original loom colours) , to give it a clean look and maximize reliability.. Soldered brass connectors used ONLY not the generic “crimp” connectors. And then heat shrink over the top of every connector. 1200 engine rebuilt by me using the best Cometic multi layer gaskets – Aqua blasted barrels and heads – VHT black barrelValve lap and seats re-cut, pistons taken out and fully cleaned, new piston rings. Bores were in perfect condition (I have pictures of the internals).British made FULL hardtail frame. These are the best you can buy, believe me I know… Fully tig welded to perfection. Hand made horseshoe oil tank, old paintttGenuine treasure which is the front headlightHarley forks shortened on the lathe, with a FULL fork rebuild and new Harley E rated oilFront wheel is running a 72 Bonne Twin leading drum, which has been lightened.

I’m selling the bike due to being over run with other Harley builds. As expected, both keys kept safe for the new owner. The bike is HPI clear and had a FULL service history before I built it. I only buy in low mileage Harley donors.
This Harley Davidson can be reserved with a deposit, full 12 months MOT due late 2021. Trialed and tested for many weekend events, v reliable, with sufficient power throughout. Most direct and smooth gearbox I’ve also had on a Sporty.
Item location – Bristol. No swaps or part exchanges.
Thank you for looking, and ride safe.
