Justin's Daily Ride: 1978 Ironhead
Thank God There's Harleys . . .
Once again we received a bunch of photographs from Justin at DP Customs in Phoenix, Arizona, United States. This time he's showing us his daily ride, a 1978 Harley Ironhead Bobber which he prepared in the DPC tradition:
Justin: "Hope all's well! Got a distressed 1978 Ironhead for you to check out... it's my 'company' bike!
I ride this hog every day. She's fast and sounds awesome. She's not perfect but has a ton of personality and gets me around with no hassles.
Justin: "I rebuilt the S&S Super B Carb. Thermal wrapped pipes and newer tires 130/16 and 100/19. 32" black Powder-coated drag bars with 1" risers. Forward controls, mini 4" bobber headlight and old Bar Enterprises seat from the 70's."
Justin: "I slammed the suspension and custom made the rear fender out of a chopped front fender. Check out how close it rides to the rubber."

Straight Bobber or Custom Bobber?
To us, any Bobber is either a Straight Bobber or a Custom Bobber.

Justin: "I did a fresh patina paint job: sea-foam green with red oxide coming through, covered in satin clear."
