According to its creator, the idea here was to make an underappreciated insect – the spider – likable by infusing it with the globally popular Harley-Davidson Sportster. Based on this, the first notable aspect of the Harley Spider is its livery. The boutique opted for a sinister dark gray base coat in a matte finish paired with custom candy green wheels for a standout contrast. In the lead there are several graphs – cobwebs, skulls and the text Harley in a Halloween font – which adds a bit of dread to the package.

More serious upgrades, however, came elsewhere. The bike maker cut out the rear subframe and replaced the stock tail with a flat, track-like unit. Likewise, you sit on a custom leather saddle while resting your hands and feet on taller aftermarket handlebars and knurled footpegs, respectively.

The Sportster’s 1,202cc twin-cylinder engine remains as is on the inside, but sports a gray finish on the outside. You also get a custom rope-wrapped exhaust system and an air filter swap to enhance the aural experience. Meanwhile, the suspension and brakes appear identical to the OEM units, as does the analog instrument cluster.
