This one of a kind hand crafted Cafe Racer was inspired by the infamous Aussie Deus Ex Machina “Bald Terrier” (https://www.gessato.com/bald-terrier-deus-harley-sportster/) with it’s unique v-twin design not often seen anywhere. This 3 year build completed in 2015 was based on a stock 2012 Harley-Davidson Sportster XL Superlow 883 in the true “cafe racer” fashion of removing only what is not needed and adding only what is required to go faster and look great doing it!

I have a full photo catalog of the entire transformation for the new owner along with service history.This motorcycle has always been garaged and runs perfect.
When I received it back from my friends collection, I went through the bike and replaced all fluids and filters with Harley Davison products at mileage 6634. I also installed new Drag Specialties fuel pump and fuel filter.
I rode it 11 miles to fuel up and check for any issues and it ran and rode flawlessly.It’s setup for 5’9″ rider but will accommodate up to 6ft with rearset adjustments. Good Luck and Happy Bidding!
