The Sportster models of the famous Milwaukee manufacturer have always been an excellent base for transforming these motorcycles into Bobber style.
Lord Drake Kustoms has made various customizations from this model to create some of the best Harley Sportster Bobber.
Recently, we published an article where we explain exactly what the Bobber style is. Today we are going to see how the Harley Davidson Sportster range has evolved over the years.
The history of the Harley Sportster
The Sportster model is one of the most famous of the Harley Davidson brand. This motorcycle has been manufactured tirelessly for over 60 years with the code XL (eXperimental Light).
This code refers to its ease of handling and modification, which makes it a perfect candidate to be customized.
The previous features combined with its low price, made it become an instant success, being a perfect model to enter the brand.
The first Sportster was created in 1957, based on the K model, an earlier model that respected many of its original features.
Since then it has not stopped evolving to this day, creating mythical bikes such as the Sportster XR 750 in the 60s, which won countless races.
Over the decades, it has continued to gain popularity, while evolving at the pace of the improvements offered by new technologies.
Some of the best-known Sportster models are the Sportster Iron or the Harley Davidson Forty-Eight. The latter with a factory Bobber air.
