Feature Bike: Robyn Hines’ Custom Harley Davidson Sportster


29 Jan

Bought as an already-modified 2005 XLC Sportster, Robyn Hines took what was effectively an ugly duckling and transformed it into a bespoke, truly original glamour. Featured in issue 21 of Wild Aussie Choppers (aka Custom Choppers), Robyn’s Harley Davidson sports a 240-wide rear conversion with Renegade billet, rims and more chrome than most.

Perhaps the most unique thing about the bike is the custom paintwork that mixes faux gold tribal graphics and air-brushed steam and moisture up the flanks (hence the number plates, STEMN). Be sure to read all about the bike in issue 21 when it goes on sale shortly.

Built by Evolution Custom Industries – check out their supercharged WL that we shot in 2012 HERE – the bike features a custom rigid rear end and that striking none-blacker appearance that’s highlighted by all the brass fittings and discoloured stainless exhaust (done that way on purpose, naturally).
