HIS YEARS ULTIMATE CUSTOM CONTEST IS HERE.
Every last nut and bolt counts as we apply our skills to our choice of custom ride – the Harley-Davidson® 1200 Roadster™. With a set budget, 10,000 parts and accessories to choose from, and endless possibilities, it’s a ride we won’t forget. Every custom creation has now been revealed, and here’s our metal master piece.
We were inspired by ‘Shamal’, and decided to customize the Harley-Davidson® Roadster™.
‘Shamal’ is a strong north-westerly wind blowing over the Arabian Gulf. This strong wind creates large sandstorms and does not let anything get in its way. To us the Roadster™ represents these strong and powerful qualities.
In lowering and extending the rear swing arm by six inches, the Roadster™ was transformed into a sand dragster. The belt drive was replaced by a chain and sprocket, whilst we changed the dual suspension to a mono suspension. The latest Harley-Davidson Genuine Parts and Accessories range was selected from; in particular the air filter, hand grips, derby and timer cover that is from the Rail collection.
The signature sand dune shadow paint work showcases ‘Shamal’ and alludes the magnitude of the Dubai desert in the United Arab Emirates.
