Harley-Davidson Crossbones Becomes Strike True II [Photo Gallery]
Enter the Strike True II, originally a 2010 Harley-Davidson Crossbones FLSTSB, now a prized classic example of how cool a cool bike can actually become. The 1940's influences were left untouched, so the bike retains all the retro character. No engine mods have been reported, so we're looking at stock machinery.
The looks however, received a massive upgrade. The first part which was tossed was the OEM tank, replaced by another H-D one: cut, reshaped and welded anew, the new one looks even more vintage and shows the rocker covers even more.
Shaw fabricated a custom rear fender and oval oil tank and redesigned the front end with a large racey number plate and relocated headlight. 1940 Speedster bars came in place of the original ones, and Roland Sands Design seat and engine covers were installed.
Add in the Performance Machine master cylinder, forward controls and switching gear, plus brass accents on the grips and pegs, and an awesome glass breather for a bike which rightfully won the heap of awards it brags on.
The Strike True II is up for grabs, and you can drop Shaw Speed & Custom a line if you feel like going for it.
