1979 Ironhead Sportster Bobber
Wiebe from the Netherlands made available these pics of his Custom 1979 Sportster which he classifies as somewhere in between Harley oldschool, Harley bobber and Harley ratbike. Anyway, for this low budget "Harley Oldschool Bobber Ratbike" Wiebe rebuilt the 1000cc Harley Ironhead Engine and did the paintjob himself. And look at the result!

The exhaust was designed and made by Wiebe. The original 18 inch rear wheel was replaced by a 16 inch wheel.
The narrow profile really gives Wiebe's bike the Harley oldschool looks.
Wiebe did a whole lot of the restoration himself. This photo shows the rear fender during the painting process.
Wiebe made this picture of the new oversize pistons and honed cylinders prior to assembly of his restored 1979 Harley Oldschool Bobber IronHead Sportster.
