Feature Bike: Nathan Moses’ 1950 Harley Davidson


27 Feb

Our photo shoot and feature story on Nathan Moses’ cool retro 1950 Harley Davidson appeared in issue 20 of Wild Aussie Choppers (aka Ultimate Choppers). Nathan bought the bike from the USA and shipped it over for less than he could have built it for here. He tells us that, luckily, the bike came as good as, or better than advertised. Nice one!

Boasting a ’49 Springer front end, 84ci stroker twin and enough retro style to win anyone over, the bike enjoys an eight-page spread in the magazine. Be sure to check it out, on-sale now!

Feature Bike: Adam Pietras’ 2005 Custom Chopper


28 Aug

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.

10 Aug

Issue 17 of Wild Aussie Choppers (AKA World’s Wildest Custom Choppers) is due out real soon and contains two feature bikes shot and written by Hosking Industries, including this awesome Big Bear, owned by Sydneysider Joe Di Palma. We shot it in an incredible abandoned factory in inner Sydney; but that’s a whole other story!

Powered by a 100ci S&S twin, the candy red chopper also features a Baker 6-speed ‘box, Devil’s Candy chrome rims and a 300-wide rear tyre. After a long history of building classic Australian muscle cars, this is Joe’s first bike and the results are excellent. Be sure to read all about it when the magazine comes out.

Feature Car… er, bike: Greg’s Custom Harley Chopper


17 Aug

Here’s a selection of six images Hosking Industries took of a custom Harley Davidson chopper motorcycle during a recent shoot for Wild Aussie Choppers magazine in Australia. Greg works for Hills & Co in Taree, NSW; but built this wicked machine before his tenure with the metal craftsman Justin Hills.

We didn’t use much in the way of flashes in this shoot thanks to the nice open shade of the workshop. We did use some compositing though, particularly to reflect some white up into the chrome work on some shots. The portrait uses strobes and you’ll find info on that on the relevant caption when visiting our Flickr page by CLICKING HERE.
