Issue 18 of Australia’s Hottest Bobbers & Customs (aka Wild Aussie Choppers) is in our hot little hands and includes two feature shoots by Hosking Industries, including this one, of Adam Pietras’ custom 2005 rigid Harley Davidson chopper. Be sure to grab a copy when it goes on sale this September.
Heavily raked, stretched and covered in candy paint and evil clown murals, Adam’s chopper is powered by a modified Evolution vee-twin engine that sounds like Hell is coming to breakfast through its ‘Ground Pounder’ exhaust pipes. Adam says he built the bike largely himself and it features numerous tributes to his late patriarchs, like special engraved DOB and RIP dates, an old Zippo lighter and other meaningful trinkets to keep him company on long cruises. It’s a rigid framed machine with next to no seat padding that must be a kidney killer on anything but baby-ass smooth roads.
As always, we’ve got a stack of FREE desktop wallpaper images for you to view and download on our Flickr page, as well as the usual lighting and EXIF data for the camera fans. Just CLICK HERE or on this thumbnails below to head over.
