Alex’s Harley-Davidson Forty-Eight
When Alex Fabian turned 30 years old, he had a mild existential crisis and bought this 2017 Harley-Davidson Forty-Eight with intentions of building a head-turning bobber. He says, “I’ve never been a Harley guy, and I’ve always owned sports bikes, but I wanted a change. I wanted something that looked cool, and I didn’t care about comfort.” His build is absolutely outrageous, with offset twin LED headlights, a sprung solo seat, swept-back drag bars, a mini air filter, barley-there exhaust pipes, and a big, Friscoe-style fuel tank that isn’t lacquered, which means it will rust if exposed to water. With any luck this dramatically styled Sportster will keep Fabian feeling young and spry for years to come.
