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.

Take care!
Justin"

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."

Straight Bobber or Custom Bobber?

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