Take one iconic brand—Harley-Davidson—and pair it with another iconic Harley—General Motors designer Harley Earl—and what do you get?
The brainchild of a French customizer known as “Lupo,” this Harley-Davidson first started out as a project for a customer in 1996. While the customer soon lost interest, Lupo continued to develop the idea. Lupo Racing built the frame, swing arm, and hydraulics, all complemented by air shocks from the French firm Pan Cruise-Fournales. The motor is a 96cid twin-cammer with fuel injection; fumes are guided to the atmosphere by an exhaust system courtesy of Vance & Hines Tecinox (also of France). Artistic Silver Platin handled the chroming chores.
But it’s the tail that gets most of the attention. Danchuk Manufacturing, a company that specializes in Tri-Five Chevy restoration parts, supplied the tail with Bel Air trim.
Lupo claims he has put 3,000 hours into the construction of this Harley hybrid. Like it? Currently residing in California, this very special bike will soon be up for sale—visit Lupo Racing‘s website for more information.
