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.
