Stile Italiano won the Hot Bike Magazine Award at the 2016 Motor Bike Expo in Verona, Italy.
Amongst a sea of customs that emulated various American styles, the Stile Italiano machine stood out do to it’s inherent Italian style. A style that is rarely seen in a custom V-Twin. Stile Italiano customized a 1200 Harley-Davidson Sportster with some fine Italian flair, i.e. fast and sexy. It’s apparent by the details that plenty of passion, experience, artistic vision and general background deep in motorcycle culture went into building this amazing machine.
One of the more interesting aspects of the bike is the rear end. The left side shock suspends the rider while the bike is sans supsension and still a hardtail. Very different and creative.The rest of the bike pulls a lot of inspiration from vintage racing, both 2 and 4 wheeled. We plain dig on it. Look for more in a future issue of Hot Bike Magazine.
