An Unhugged Sportster

shirriffs sxr sportster 1 thTreavor Shirriffs from Hartford, Wisconsin planned the conversion of his 2002 Hugger smartly. He knew I have been habitually slow delivering body parts--the problem of a single mold chugging out parts as fast as it can go. Trev started his build well in advance of receiving his body kit.

He was superb at planning color application. The central mass of his hugger is in contemporary flat black. Happily he didn’t continue black into his wheels. Instead his used gold and answered it with a unique pipe treatment in the same color. [Trev those pipes look loud-both ways.] Fork boots and scrambles bars are a nifty connection to bikes from the 70s.

When my body kit came he had some issues moving the coil for tank clearance but finished the bike in two weeks. A really nice job Treavor.

The best flat-track t-shirt ever!

XR750TshirtPerfect shirt for flat trackers to wear at motorcycle gatherings. It’s all about the first 1970 XR750--a proper right side view with all the basic specs in text box. The orange sleeves are so right for the two-color XR imprint design and set the shirt apart from all the other white ones in the world (or badassed black ones with skulls!).

xr750-shirt-photoThe design is orange and black on an Augusta 50% cotton/50% polyester shirt with orange raglan sleeves and orange collar. I'm stocking these in only Large and XL because, well, we're gettin' older aren't we? I'm making other sizes in small batches.
