Michael started Guildford Custom within Guildford H-D around nine years ago and has been part of the Lind H-D Family for just over ten. Having a passion for motorcycles, the culture around them and Harley-Davidson in particular for many years prior, it’s allowed him to turn that passion and flare for customisation into a 24/7 obsession.
Along with owning a long list of Custom and Stock bikes over the years, he currently rides a 1977 Shovelhead Chopper. This machine has ridden far and wide to shows and rallies around Europe and the UK. “For me it’s all about good times and experiences, the bike is the link to the experiences. Seems a little cliché but yeah, it is the great American freedom machine”.
Taking inspiration from Japanese Custom Culture we wanted to build a super tight, lane splitter that you can ride and fast through the city. H-D Rail Collection cam cover and filter give the motor a stripped down look, mixed with a 2-into-1 Stainless Exhaust.
If it wasn’t important we cut it off and the skinny H-Bars and smaller Peanut Tank mean you can attack all the small gaps in the traffic. Both Mike and lead tech on the project, Neil, love how versatile the Sporty can be, lending itself to almost any “genre” or “style”. It's cool, affordable and repeatable, what more could you want?
