DP Customs is one of our favourite American custom motorcycle builders, their no-bullshit approach to engineering and design is uniquely appealing and thankfully they’ve chosen to stay away from the blinged-out-chrome-show-ponies that seem to be produced by almost everyone with a wrench and a goatee.
This is one of their newer bikes, it started life as a classic ’81 Harley Ironhead although almost all that remains from the original bike is the reconditioned 1000cc V-Twin. The beautiful cobalt blue paint work and matte white exhausts give the bike an almost aeronautical feel and I get the impression that this bike would be the perfect summertime coastal highway cruiser.
