On the Harley-Davidson stand at Motorcycle Live 2021, we were able to check out a stunning Sportster S that Sykes HD painted in a classic retro orange paint scheme.

The history of the Sportster family dates back to the mid-1950s with the first XL-badged machines. Paying homage to a rich history, while also taking design cues from the new 2021 Sportster S, we took a closer look at the Sykes custom at Motorcycle Live 2021.

Taking inspiration from the factory flat track racing team that underscores the Sportster family heritage, this particular model adds extra flair with the gold honeycomb detailing, custom stitched seat and wheels. two-tone.

Continuing the flat track theme on the Sportster S is the high mount exhaust with ceramic coated exhaust shields, and Sykes HD added the classic Harley #1 badging for that touch of flair.

At the heart of this machine is the Revolution Max 1250T engine, a liquid-cooled V-twin with DOHC and variable valve timing housed in fully blacked-out engine cases.
