One of the cool things about Sporties is how flexible the format is. These reliable and fun bikes make fine choppers, blobbers, mobbers, boogers, whatever you wanna call 'em these days. This machine is a stunning example of what can be done when a talented builder gets ahold of one with the pure intent of putting the "Sport" back in "Sportster". This bike was a long term project for Brandon Holstein of Brawny Built / Speed Merchant. His buddy, Jimmy Monk was staying with him while it was in progress and called first dibs if it ever went up for sale. And the rest, as they say, is history.
