In 2021, Rawhide Cycles was chosen as an invited builder to one of the best custom motorcycle shows in the world, Born Free. We started from scratch on this build. Lots of stainless steel fabrication all over the bike. Specifically, we customized the entire straight-leg Panhead frame, front end, wheels, Sportster tank, solo seat and we built a very unique set of exhaust and a sissy bar from stainless.
We rebuilt the engine, the transmission and a vintage two-throat S&S carburetor and gave the bike a tough look that is extended, with shiny chrome and show paint by Max Schaaf of 4Q Conditioning. Our goal was to be period correct for the era the bike is from.
Our donor bike was a complete, custom 1966 H-D FLH Shovelhead.
