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 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. What if you wanted one of them without all the luxurious features and amenities on it? Well, you used to not have an option. 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...

Harley-Davidson's electric motorcycle has a sleek new rival that has a 200-mile range and can track everything about your rides online

The race to bring electric motorcycles to the market is heating up. Harley-Davidson, the legendary American biker brand, already has plans to launch its first electric product this year (and has two other concepts in the pipeline). Other companies, like Wing, Alta and more also have models hitting the market.  Now, there's a new entrant to the race: Zero. The California-based company launched its first electric motorcycle in 2010, and followed up with the SR/F this month. Here's a first look at...

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...
