Roberto prosegue il filone neo-minimalista che gli ha riservato tante soddisfazioni. Senza strafare rivisita in chiave retrò Cross Bones, ultimo modello prodotto con forcella springer. Ci mette un pizzico di nostalgia, buone idee, alluminio e olio di gomito, serbatoio Forty-Eight, pinne tonanti e uno scampolo di cuoio Connolly…
Time after time we have been stunned by the craftsmanship of Roberto, his custom motorcycles are guaranteed to spark a sensation on the custom scene. His latest creation is a custom HD Cross Bones aka Giancarlo – Redhot Bones.
The base for the build was a stock 2009 HD Cross Bones. At the rear the original wheel rim has been replaced with a 16-inch and both wheels are wrapped in beautiful ANS Firestone tires. The stock fender has been replaced with a hand fabricated ‘70s Laverda Formula 500’ style fender whilst the front of this custom HD Cross Bones features a drag bar.
The seat cover is made of leather tanned in the ’70s by Connolly Luxury Leathergoods Limited. The same leather was also part of the Rolls Royce Phantom 1 1930. The detail of the seat cover on this bike is astonishing and has been applied by fastener snaps.
The stock HD Cross Bones fuel tank was replaced with a Forty-Eight tank and features 1972 racing H-D XRTT decal. I personally adore every bit of this bike, but my favorite has to be the hand crafted mufflers with fish tales terminal. The Softail custom risers are modified using a special plate steering wheel, which is fixed.
The finished HD Cross Bones is a tasteful transformation in Rossi style, all the details on this custom bike balance perfectly!
