Local Motors Racer motorcycle is balanced blend of simplicity, individualism and modern performance. A classic Harley Davidson Sportster at its core, the Racer — while respecting its iconic lineage – incorporates custom elements reminiscent of the great 1970s BT44 Formula One racers to define a new class of cruiser. The attention to detail can be seen most in the construction process. The Racer starts as an authentic, pristine condition, hand-selected Harley Davidson Sportster. After the motorcycle is completely stripped, the necessary modifications are made to the frame while retaining the bike’s original VIN plate, allowing for easy registration and insurability.
