Was checking out the latest on Hide Motorcycles aka Hidemo and found a rake of Sportsters – all built in a similar style, but all superbly engineered and totally my thing. Well that’s what I’m aiming for with mine: that slammed, simple look. Love the tiny air filters that accentuate the gorgeous lines of the v-twin motor so well. Why do so many people want to hide them with big chunks of chrome?
Hidemo’s Harleys have won Best Of Show Motorcycle in Yokohama Hot Rod Custom Show 2006 and 2007, and placed second in the 2007 Jammer Cycle Award, were the top ten in AMD European World Championship in 2007, and runners-up in the Sinners Award at the 2008 Kobe Hot Rod Custom Show.
