HARLEY DAVIDSON SPORTSTER FORTY-EIGHT: BATTLESHIP GREY
I wanted to recreate something that didn’t belong in a specific category but consisted of elements that came from certain styles. Usually when it comes to air cooled bikes I tend to take a “less is more” approach. So by getting rid of the excess parts I found unnecessary for this project, i was almost at a clean canvas minus with just forks, engine, and frame all attached still.
Stripping the motorcycle down to bare essentials: Every additional piece is now amplified by the voids around it.
