Santiago Choppers have established themselves for far more than just raked-out chrome show bikes, this Norley Café Racer is a great example of their detail-oriented and forward thinking design style.
That beautiful 1200cc Sportster engine is sitting inside a handmade Norton Featherbed-style frame, the fuel tank is custom made from hand beaten aluminium, the oil tank is custom as is the seat, seat cowling and rear-set. The huge vented front discs are Wilwood, the rear shocks are Hagon and the 2 into 1 exhaust is Kerker.
The metallic orange and chrome colour scheme may not be to everyone’s taste but I like it, you could certainly never accuse this bike of being subtle. The graceful arcs of the Featherbed frame are always great to look at and that oversized Harley V-Twin seems to fit as though the engine and frame were created for each other.
The Norley is currently listed on eBay and bidding is sitting at US $13,099.99. Head over here to check out the auction.
