Lyle Hogan’s Evel SXR

hogan-evel-sxr-2hogan-evel-sxr-1Here we have a nice 1980 Iron Head Sportster--before and after Lyle Hogan Eveled it. This is Lyle's second SXR conversion--the second of what he anticipates to be a group of about 5 eventually.

He said "Evel Kneivel was my boyhood hero, so I wanted to do a bike like his for a while. I'm 57 and still act like a kid. The donor bike was in very good original condition. The standard SXR tail section had to be widened ¾" to fit the pre-Evo frame. Phil did this at no additional charge and I will promise you can't see where it was cut and re-shaped. He is truly the guru of glass".

"The bike was drawing a crowd while still perched on the lift. I spent too much money on the custom-fabbed exhaust but, once started, no turning back. Meanwhile, I was especially pleased with Phil's red/white/blue seat stitching. And a sign shop made the Evel graphics package. I love it, but am gonna let someone else do the jumping. Enjoy!"

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.
