Your view of the Forty-Eight in standard trim?

I think it’s a great set up. I especially like the laid-back riding style.


Is there a name for your finished Forty-Eight?


What’s the concept for the bike’s style?

Its design is inspired by the old utilitarian H-D hill climbing style, coupled with a simple metal flake painted tank and hand-painted title on the side covers.

The most challenging element of the build?

Incorporating the big Fat Boy fuel tank without ruining the rideability of the motorcycle and the Forty-Eight’s classic lines.

Nominate a design element of the bike that makes you proud?

We added a row of spotlights to the crossbar of the Hollywood handlebars, similar to those mounted over the cab on a 4x4 American pick-up truck.

Is the finished bike how you envisaged it from the start?

Yes, it’s exactly how we envisaged the bike to be and we’re very proud.
