Harley-Davidson Ironhead by Hazan Motorworks [Photo Gallery]
The only things which are not made by Max are the engine (Amal carbs included) and the wheels. The rest of the Ironhead is made in-house, believe it or not, and that's why Hazan's creation blurs the boundaries between bike customization and art.
Far more than tinkering around the old engine, Max wanted to avoid compromises, and that's why he went on to manufacture all the parts he needed.
With everything falling into place as he wanted, Max Haza also decided it was the right time for an original front suspension. Using intricate linkage, the girder-like fork is mated to dual undertank springs and a damper under the headlight. Smooth and elegant!
Simplicity dominated this raw machine, and all the handmade parts exhibit the same clean and tidy attire. No wires can be seen dangling and no clutter impact this awesome build.
The wooden seat with minimal spring travel might not be the best and most comfortable one in the world, bit from an aesthetic point of view, it is as glorious as anything else.
With 30" and 31" wheels shod with 1920's car tires, the Ironhead might looks like a heavy bastard, but Max says the beast weighs about 300 lbs (136 kg), which is another surprise from this sweet metal beauty.
