Barnett’s Classified Galleries
Parking Lot Bike of the week
There’s been a call from the higher-up to feature more mildly-modified Harley-Davidsons which you all are apparently clamoring for. And, no, I’m not referring to the “higher-up” as straight from Jesus as you might be thinking, but from the often lovable, never not charming and always thinking Barnett Harley-Davidson General Manager, Mark Barnett. He says you want ‘em so here you go and it should fit the mildly-modified bill like it was a perfect template for this article. Just so you know, I quite like it.
Every now and then you run into a custom Harley that really hits the nail squarely on the head. Sort of a Goldilocks bike that’s not basically stock with a couple of bolt-ons or something too radical you can’t just hop on and ride it without having to think about it, but a build that brings out what most Harley dreamers would like to own if they had the cash or the talent. One that looks good, performs good and could even get serviced at a Harley dealer anywhere in the USA. In my opinion, that’s exactly the feel-good custom bike you’re looking at right here.
So it took me by surprise when I finally noticed that the cool café Sportster (or what I automatically assumed was a Sportster) was not a Sportster at all, but a big-boy, big-block rubber-mount Harley Dyna that had gone under the cosmetic surgery knife of Lord Drake Kustoms.
