Battle of the Kings 3: H-D® Durban's Entry!
For this build, we intentionally didn’t want to restrict ourselves to one style, as we wished for it to appeal to a broader audience. We derived inspiration from various styles: café racer, scrambler & bobber.
In “BEEFING” the Sportster® up, we opted for a bigger fuel tank that was specifically designed for this build. The side covers and rear fender are custom made and were flared out to give the bike a more menacing stance. The pipes were custom made and gives a real nice industrial feel. They will turn colour as the bike gets ridden, pay close attention to this detail and the welding.
Our designer incorporated Harley®'s rich racing heritage with the subtle chequered flag in the detail of the paintwork and also highlighted some of the
copper accents with the drag style handlebar and headlamp trim ring.
This bike was fitted with fully adjustable shocks for the rider to experience the ultimate in handling and ride quality. Ultimately we wanted this bike to ride/handle as amazing as

CVO™ Pro Street Breakout® Motorcycle!
One look at the CVO™ Pro Street Breakout® and you’ll see a combination of race-inspired style and custom detailing unlike anything that’s ever rolled out of a factory and onto the street. The 110 cubic inch engine, the fat rear tyre, speed screen, chin spoiler and aggressive stance scream pure American muscle. The finishes scream pure custom. From the premium paint to the controls to the finishes on the metal, we sweat every detail.
2016 Low Rider® S Motorcycle
In 1977, when the first Harley-Davidson® Low Rider® rolled off the line, it pushed the limits of factory custom design to a place they’d never been. Now, the Low Rider® S is taking the genre to a raw and powerful new edge. We mounted our Screamin’ Eagle Twin Cam 110™engine in a nimble Dyna chassis and installed a heavy breather intake. We added tall bars, mid-mount controls and a new seat that position arms up and out and feet square, along with premium front and rear suspension, giving the rider everything required to put the massive power to good use. We stripped down and blacked-out the rest with gold accents like the tank badge and pinstripe and matching split five-spoke cast aluminum wheels. Get behind the fixed speed screen and hang on.

On 28th November 2015, we hosted a fundraiser for CHOC (an organisation that helps children with cancer).

We had a bikini bike wash, rocking live tunes by Gavin Ferguson and FREE mini bunny chows from the H.O.G. Diner upstairs! The always-generous folks from Electric Eye Tattoo Studio donated a R1000 tattoo voucher to be raffled off as well. A big thank-you to the CHOC Cows Durban Herd for being "udderly" amazing while sweating their butts off in their cow onesies & to Serenity Hair, Nails & Beauty Salon for shaving heads and donating ALL proceeds to CHOC! Last but not least - thank you to everyone that came through to join us for a great cause.
