Japan boasts the striking presence of the custom 1966 Harley-Davidson XLCH Ironsport’66.

Hide Motorcycles presents the formidable custom 1966 Harley-Davidson XLCH, dubbed the Ironsport’66. Despite initial perceptions, Japan's Hide Motorcycles proves itself a force to be reckoned with in the world of custom Harley-Davidsons.

The Ironsport’66, a product of Hide's craftsmanship in 2018, showcases meticulous attention to detail, from its unique tank and exhaust system to its custom rear fender. Embracing a minimalist ethos, this bespoke motorcycle features tracker-style handlebars and forgoes a front fender.

Powered by a 900cc Ironhead V-Twin engine, the classic allure of the old-school Sportster remains intact. Yet, it's the striking blue-and-bare metal finish that truly captivates attention.

Adorned with an HDM logo and a majestic spread-winged eagle, the custom tank exudes personality. Additionally, the heat-treated exhaust pipes, displaying mesmerizing hues of blues, purples, and golds, further enhance its allure, earning it Noise Cycles's Pick at the 2018 Yokohama Hot Rod Custom Show.

While Hide Motorcycles has made its mark primarily with Harley-Davidsons, the Kawasaki City-based builder's repertoire extends beyond 1966 XLCHs. From extravagant builds like "Galaxy" and "Innocent" to ventures with BMW R nineT's Boxer engine, the brand showcases a diverse portfolio encompassing rigid bobbers, flat track racers, and stylish Harley-Davidson V-Twin-powered café racers.

For enthusiasts eyeing Hide's acclaimed creations, including the Ironsport’66, a journey to Kanagawa is necessary to procure one of these exceptional machines.
