Harley Davidson Police Bike

How far back do you think police motorcycles have been used? Would it surprise you to learn that Harley Davidson credits Detroit Michigan as the first purchaser of a police bike back in 1908? That's right, over 100 years ago! Of course those were significantly different than this Electra Glide brilliantly recreated by builder brickthebrick. Just look at all that custom chrome, shiny!

Custom Harley Bagger

Custom parts (modified, chromed, printed, painted) tend to divide a lot of builders. Purists consider them "cheating" or somehow offensive. I'm actually pretty OK with them (at least the chromed and printed ones) mostly because I use them in animation a lot. It's hard to deny the results of a nicely assembled bit of quality chromed parts. You can't tell me the impact of this outrageous custom Harley by builder brickthebrick would be just the same with gray parts and limited official chrome, just look at that engine!

Harley "Bagger" Rat Bike

Have you ever heard of a custom style known as rat bikes? It's where you customize your bike, but go for a practical or unfinished look. Usually it's primer, sometimes there's rust, but they're all meant to ride and they all have personality. These aren't show bikes, they're cobbled together from spare parts, made functional (and presumed legal), gassed up and on the road. They're the product of love, and so is this 1/10th scale rat bike from bricksonwheels, gritty magnificence.
