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.

As always, we’ve got a series of FREE desktop wallpaper images for you to enjoy and strobist fans will find our lighting information and EXIF data on each image’s caption, too. Simply CLICK HERE or on the thumbnails below to visit our Flickr page where all the goodies lay in wait for your visit.

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.
