Fighting Talk: Harley design boss Brad Richards

Harley-Davidson is under a microscope right now: its every move is dissected, examined and critiqued. And there have been plenty of moves lately. They’ve killed the Dyna while relaunching the Softail. They’ve announced a barrage of new models, including the Livewire. But although revenue is holding up at the moment, sales figures have been declining for several years—and were down 10% in 2018. It’s a challenging time for the Motor Company. So I sat down in Milwaukee with Harley’s VP of Styl...

DOPE DIRIGIBLE. Kacerwagen’s ‘Zeppelina V72’ Board Tracker

Written by Martin Hodgson They were the original kings of the race track, but you won’t ever find a replica of one hanging out at your local cafe bike meet. However over recent years with TV shows like Harley and the Davidsons and Sons of Speed, along with the input of America’s best builders like Billy Lane and Rick Petko, the board tracker is back with a vengeance. But what do you do when you live in a country where finding a ’20s Indian in a barn is as likely as finding the fabled pot of g...

Spirit of the XLCR: A Fat Bob custom from Blacktrack

Blacktrack Motors have got cafe racer design down to a fine art. Their first build was one of the sharpest Honda CX500 cafes we’ve ever featured, and they followed it up with a pixel perfect custom Thruxton. Now they’ve tackled their most ambitious project yet, the BT-03—a cafe racer based on the Harley-Davidson Fat Bob 114 FXFBS. The Fat Bob 114 is one of the most fun bikes in Harley’s range. Its 114 ci power plant generates 155 Nm of torque, and handling from the new generation Softail ...

Harley-Davidson Buys StaCyc, the Electric Push Bike Company

From Old to Young What do you do when your customer base gets too old to continue using your products? You target their grandchildren, of course. At least that’s what Harley-Davidson is doing. In the company’s quest to do a Benjamin Button-type turnaround with its customer base, it has purchased the electric stability-bike company StaCyc.  Honestly, this could turn out the be a genius long-term strategy. If you grow up zooming around on a little push bike Harley-Davidson, you’re bound to want o...

Harley-Davidson Updates the LiveWire

Now Slightly More Enticing When the Harley-Davidson LiveWire debuted, the bike was hit hard by consumers and media for not being good enough and for being way too expensive. We joined in on this dog pile. The bike simply didn’t appear to offer enough to be a competitive bike. Well, Harley has made some updates to the model and they’ve made the bike a little more interesting. Here are the big updates that you should probably know. First off, the bike’s range was increased from the 110 miles that...

The 2019 Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Standard Is the Dressed Down Dresser

For a More Visceral Touring Experience Harley-Davidson’s big dresser motorcycles are what many people think of when they think of the brand and for good reason. Harley sells a lot of these big bikes.

Enter the 2019 Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Standard.  The Electra Glide Standard reduces the Electra Glide Ultra Classic down to its essentials. This eliminates all the ext...

Spike Lee Directed Stylish Coach Ad Features a Harley XG750R and Michael B. Jordan

Words Matter, But Does Reality? First off, the headline of this article is nothing more than a big name drop. With that said, there are some good names in there. Coach, the high-end retailer of men and women’s fashion items, employed superstar actor Michael B. Jordan and famous director Spike Lee to put together a killer video for #WordsMatter in an attempt to promote its men’s fashion line.  While I wouldn’t trust a Coach jacket to save me in a crash, there’s no denying that Michael B. Jordan ...

The Best of the 2019 Mama Tried Motorcycle Show

There are only four or five months of good riding weather in the American Midwest. The rest of the time, motorcyclists keep sane by wrenching. And nothing offers more inspiration than the annual Mama Tried motorcycle show in Milwaukee. The sixth edition of the show happened just last weekend, shortly after the polar vortex was done ravaging the region. Visitors huddled away from the snow inside the Eagles Club—a ballroom and live music venue with a pseudo-psychedelic interior. Inside, cust...

Building a Street Bob custom using Harley’s rulebook

More Harley-Davidsons go under the grinder than any other make of bike. But surprisingly, The Motor Co. seldom commissions customs from big-name builders. Instead, it has developed the annual Battle of the Kings contest—where dealers customize a bike within a very strict rule set. To get a taste of how hard that is, we flew to Milwaukee for the second Harley-sponsored ‘Brewtown Throwdown’ event. The Brewtown Throwdown is a build-off between teams, made up of people from different walks of ...

COOL CHANGE. Benjie’s Classic Harley Softail Bobber

Written by Andrew Jones When the new wave of Japanese customs rocked up in the late noughties, it was like the 70-odd years of custom bike history before that point didn’t exist. We barged into the room  with our new-fangled cafe racers, brats and trackers and turned up our noses at pretty much anything that wasn’t ordained as that month’s hot new trend. But as many shops now ponder their 142nd cafe racer build, the trends that prevailed in the 70s, 80s and 90s are now being seen with new, mo...

Harley-Davidson Says Goodbye to Profits Thanks to Trump Tariffs

Hard Knock Life for Harley-Davidson Harley-Davidson’s earnings per share dried up due to the tariffs imposed by President Donald Trump. According to Bloomberg, the earnings per share were zero. Before factoring in tariff and restructuring costs, the company managed 17 cents per share in profits, which came in below analyst estimates of 29 cents. In Harley’s regulatory filing, it said the following: “Operating margin as a percent of revenue decreased in the quarter due to restructuring charges, ...

Harley-Davidson Shows Off Its Electric Concepts In Action

Harley Looking Ahead Harley-Davidson made a big effort towards the future with its new LiveWire. However, that bike hasn’t been very well received. Most people aren’t impressed with the range or price. Basically, $30k is a lot to ask for a motorcycle that only goes about 100 miles per charge. Harley showed off two other bikes when it debuted the LiveWire. Two smaller concepts and now there’s video.  At the X Games in Aspen, Colorado, the company brought its two small concepts along and let some...

DIRTY MIND. Fabtech’s Obsessive Harley Sportster Hooligan

Written by Martin Hodgson Hooligan racing is – as the name suggests – a hell of a lot of fun and when an Aussie caught a glimpse of the action he wanted in, bad. The machines are road-based; a mix of street tracker and dirt bike that rip it up on the flat track. For Australian metal fabricator extraordinaire Jamie Portelli of Fabtech Creations, a trip to the USA had him hooked and he started planning the build before he’d even boarded the QANTAS flight home. The end result is this rampaging 1...
