Okay, okay, back to a bit of Harley reality with this fetching rendition of Jim Bortles’ take on a Sportster that willingly trespasses on Harley-Davidson’s recent highly successful Dark Custom series, but with a twist of brass. Actually, that’s a misnomer as Harley is the one who’s trespassing on a look that pro and amateur builders have been doing for years. Yes, Harley did capitalize on murdering out their various models to bring them in line with the hipsters, but builders like Jim Bortles, owner of The Chopper Farm in Waxhaw, North Carolina, are always way ahead of the production bike curve and this Sporty is just one more example. Dark and brassy always has its own appeal and you have to admit this 2002 Sporty wears it well.

            Lordy, Lordy, y’all are in for a treat this week. There were so many Class A custom bikes at the Charlotte Easyriders Show this year that we decided to run them on three separate days. I photographed over seventy bikes during the show and we wanted to space them out so that you don’t suffer from overkill all in one day.

   Yes, my three-wheeled friends, it’s time Barnett’s Magazine Online showed you some love and this nicely customized Tri Glide is our form of smoking an online peace pipe with you. It’s not that we don’t love you, it’s just that we don’t see a lot of custom trikes at the shows. Maybe it’s just because all you trike freaks are so busy riding the hell out of them that you can’t find the time to modify your trikes. Well here’s one owned by North Carolinian, Sharon Vinson, that got the touch by Kenny Williams of KW Customs in Benson, North Carolina, before not only heading back on the road, but with a show stop at the recent Ray Price Motorsports Expo in lovely downtown Raleigh, North Carolina.

   Why am I the guy that always gets the mystery bike? When I came into work today, lo and behold, there was a stack of folders all saying “owner unknown” piled on my desk. “Here we go again” was my first thought, but thumbing through Jack Cofano’s photos revealed a lot of really nice bikes. Matter of fact, every one was well built, imaginative and down right cool in their own way to top it off. Might as well start right off with a metric bike and get the hardcore Harley lovers ire.

   Lane splitting is something that can get you into some big trouble with the law unless you happen to live in sunny old California. Filtering through stopped, slow, or fairly rapidly moving traffic is perfectly acceptable as long as you’ve got the right bike to do it on and you’re a decent rider. I don’t think I’ve got to explain what kind of bike other than the narrower the better. Slicing between cars on a big Harley bagger can have its moments to say the least and an often even-wider custom bagger probably leaves you out of the lane-splitting loop altogether. But, not for Chris Richardson of LA Speed Shop fame. His Panhead bagger can slice and dice with the best of them.

   Not everyone needs a big block blaster all the time. Humming down a long highway on a big Harley touring bike is just about as good as it gets, but scooting around town just might be another story. That’s where this little charming bottle rocket of a Royal Enfield scrambler built by Erik Vauth of House of Thunder USA in Miami Beach, Florida, comes into play. It’s cute, it’s small and it’s affordable and all in one lovely to look at single-cylinder package.

  No one’s owned up as to how the photos of Sasse van Essen’s Skull Racer custom ended up on Barnett’s Magazine Online’s Picasa photo site. No one. So we’re presenting it to you anyway as a custom Harley-Davidson Softail is always interesting as far as we’re concerned. Especially one that’s still totally rideable while still earning a third place in the modified Harley-Davidson class at the 2010 AMD European Championship Show.

  I just got off the phone with Barnett’s Magazine Online photographer and man-about-town, Jack Cofano, where we were having a lively discussion about how popular Harley’s Shovelhead bikes have become. We talked about the good and bad of Shovels, but the end result was just how popular they have become no matter what practical aspects they might lack for the average rider. Does it seem to you too that the Shovelhead bikes are about the hippest, hottest thing at the moment? Yeah, us too.
