The USA’s approach to motorcycle design has traditionally been different from European and Japanese approaches. Wide open spaces, long straight highways and restricted speeds do not require sharp handling motorcycles with warp speed potential. Low revving, big capacity V twin motors with big torque are fitted to large, comfortable motorcycles with average handling and stopping power. Most US manufacturers and especially Harley Davidson have used this recipe for their products with great success in the American market and more recently world wide. These American motorcycles were also modified into the original bobbers of the 1940s and the choppers of the 1960s. Harley did introduce the Sportster to counter British motorcycle sales in the US but even the Sportys are obviously American in their styling.
Mark, the owner of this Savage, has gone for a no frills bobber with awesome 23 inch wheels, a custom made hard-tail rear end and chain-drive. All work was executed by the gifted hands at V Custom Cycles
