The composite body looks very much like the original, he made custom stainless pipes in the original style, the forks are from a Honda Valkyrie, the headlight from a Yamaha Fazer 600, Yamaha MT01 handlebars and custom aluminum housings for the stock gauges top it off. The whole project is really well done.
Jean has moved to a new website and now works designing a wide range of projects for his clients. He sent me a note a few weeks ago to let me know he has a lot more more photos of his work online and while looking through them this one really jumped out. I noticed, too, that Luca Bar pointed to his Sportster Scrambler in a comment on a recent post, it’s another nice bit of work.
Jean’s site is definitely worth checking out, his Sportster cafe in the Egli Vincent style is another beauty and breaks away from the more common Sportster customs. I could link to many more of his bikes, but it’s probably easier if you look over the site on your own. I think you’ll like what you see.
