When the Portland based team at Icon set to work on a new motorcycle the results are always fascinating, unusual and sure to upset purists everywhere. Which I think is commendable.

The Roach, as this bike is now called, started life as a stock 1986 Harley-Davidson Sportster. The Icon guys set about creating a v-twin dual-sport with a side of nuclear fallout, that 2 into 2 exhaust was custom made, the front forks were replaced, the rear suspension was swapped out to giver her a little more ride height.

From a styling perspective, The Roach has been given the full Four Horsemen treatment and is now just about the perfect motorcycle for the impending societal collapse that people with wild eyes and large stocks of tinned fruit talk about.
