Sportster Goes Dirty, Scrambler Dirty

One of the things we love most about Shaw Speed & Custom is that fact that these guys are not afraid to deliver extremely bold builds and seem to enjoy adding massive amounts of radical tuning to pretty much any bike. Here's XLZ3, a Harley Sportster which went dirty, scrambler dirty.

From the initial, cool bobber attire to the happy yet menacing scrambler looks with heavy-duty knobbies, the road was long, but it seems like the end product is well worth it.

It's hard to pinpoint which part of this bike is the most "offensive": the off-road tires, the Ohlins fork and gas-charged rear shocks, the new, smaller tank or the amazing paint job? Speaking about paint, Shaw Speed & Custom has done a marvelous job adding the fiery red accents on the calipers, push rods, masters amd skid plate.

Add in the dual, 2-into-2 scrambler-approved horizontal exhausts, a new tuck and roll seat and the MX-style raised rear fender, grab bar, and a small, cozy headlight and you've got the new go-anywhere bike.

Shaw Speed & Custom also added a custom swingarm and switched the final drive from belt to chain, to make the already cool bike even cooler.
