1977 Ironhead Lane Splitter Bobber
Thank God There's Harleys . . .
Jeff from North Highlands, California, United States made available these pictures of his cool Harley Davidson Bobber which he built on the basis of a 1977 Ironhead Engine in a rigid frame. Jeff's bike has an extremely narrow front profile. With her minimum width gas tank, saddle and handle bars this beauty is a true Lane Splitter!
This Harley Lane Splitter has a stock front frame section with a weld on hardtail that Jeff rotated down for ground clearance, shortened lengthwise 2 inches, and narrowed. The wheels are 18 and 19 inch cast aluminum, coated in grease. Jeff says they clean up pretty well. Note the infamous firestone tires. The gas tank is 70's aftermarket GME King Sportster, narrowed, ummm....... a lot? Bars are home made, rear fender is a narrowed and defunked FLH front fender with slight kickup at the back.
Custom "Window Blaster"(tm) exhaust pipes. The oil tank is from a flat track race bike. Note the skinny pegs
Front end is 35mm hydraulic, was shaved, shortened and lowered.
Disc brakes front and rear, JB caliper on custom mount, tiny front and rear master cylinders.
Custom seatpan covered with tuck'n'roll. Note the tiny filler cap.
The headlight is something, but that taillight is something else...
