The Hill Fighter by Rising Sun Workshop

48 Sportster Custom 450x330 - The Hill Fighter by Rising Sun Workshop

The Hill Fighter is the first in-house custom built by the team at the Rising Sun Workshop in Sydney, Australia. It’s based on a Harley-Davidson Sportster but as you can see from the video above, it’s an exceedingly thorough rebuild that’s seen almost every element of the design rebuilt, redesigned or replaced. We’ve previously featured Rising Sun on…

Harley-Davidson Ironhead Chopper

Harley Davidson Chopper 450x330 - Harley-Davidson Ironhead Chopper

I don’t tend to feature choppers on Silodrome very often, there are a few reasons for this but generally speaking I try to avoid motorcycles that are built with a focus on form before function and sadly, many modern choppers are little more than metal flake show ponies.

Fortunately though, the team at DP Customs love nothing more than a little in…

Whenever we feature a custom Harley I always end up in a feedback loop, extolling my opinion that the design department at Harley-Davidson needs a shakeup and that they really need to get back to innovating like they did when the company was young, rather than replicating their past. Then I remember that it probably…
