    Sportster XLH883 Custom Build by Hide Motorcycle.

    Here is a smart looking XLH883 Custom build by Japanese Sportster specialists Hide Motorcycle.

    Many of the custom parts are Hide Motorcycles own products including the air filter, exhaust system, handlebars, tail light, turn signals, seat, paintwork and speedo relocation bracket.

    The bike has a retro 1970's look, it even has a 1970's style Avon front tyre and a Goodyear Eagle replica rear tyre.

    Yeah, I love the Hidemo sportsters. This is my favourite SP26. I tried to buy parts from them for my 883R, but their website's in Japanese!

    That's nice Alec, the Sportster I featured is the SP-40.

    Strange how the big four Japanese factories get custom styling so wrong, yet these independent bike builders get the styling so right.

    I agree, I think the Japanese like Hidemo and Tramp build the sweetest looking Sportster customs.
