I wanted to create a bobber Iron 883. I did research on Sportster bobbers before purchasing the bike. When I purchased the bike and started modifying it and didnt reference other bike builds so I could try and make it as much of my own style as possible.
I own a tattoo shop called Articulit Tattoo. I wanted to build a “shop bike” to ride to work and advertise the business with. I always thought it would be cool to have a side gig rebuilding motorcycles I get for cheap, adding custom paint jobs to them as well, then showing/selling. This is the first go at this…minus the selling part.
I wanted to modify a sportster and I always loved the general look of the Iron 883s.
I did a custom painted tank and derby cover. Both were the original tank and derby cover but I sanded them down to the bare metal then painted them.
I am proud of how cohesive the build turned out and how many looks it gets while riding around.
It is unique and eye catching.
