2000 Harley-Davidson Sportster

McGoo’s personal stable has seen its share of hand-built motorcycles, everything from quasi show bikes to inconspicuous stockers like this mildly tweaked XL. What makes this bike special in the eyes of its builder is the things it lacks. “Beauty by subtraction,” Biltwell brand manager Bill Bryant calls it. The donor bike for Harold’s first Sportster since 2007 had good bones—polished 9-spoke mags, shaved fork legs, a flat bottom Sporty tank—so the fussy BMX nerd focused on cleaning up the chassis, gutting the stock wiring and trimming the cam cover. Bolt-on goodies from the Biltwell parts bin came next. McGoo’s goal with this bike was to show what a builder with some gumption and a grinder could do in his own garage. No welders, English wheels or MMI tuition payments required. Mission accomplished.
