In recognition of the Martini brand celebrating its 150th anniversary in 2013, the English shop Shaw Speed & Custom has joined the celebrations by creating a pair of hot-rodded Harley Sportster XL883Rs.
The two custom motorbikes are based on the XL883R. Both have been stripped down, and the rear ends fabricated in house to lose the original fender rails. The wheels have been replaced with hand built additions both on profile rims.
Knobbly tires with a super 180mm on the rear and a kick-up rear fender over rear Ohlins shocks give this bike a strong stance.
Both Martini bikes have rebuilt motors with a tuned Screamin’ Eagle 1200 conversion, race-spec heads and pistons, and a custom-fabbed exhaust systems.
