Check out this Porsche 918-inspired custom Harley-Davidson

The folks down at Shaw Speed & Custom workshop in the UK took a bare bones Blackline Softail and turned it into this incredible custom masterpiece. The Harley received a displacement boost from 1584cc to 1690cc, a Performance Machine/ Screamin' Eagle intake, and a Competition Vance and Hines exhaust.

The aesthetic make-over was done using RSD Clarity line parts, Bossline PM wheels and other parts. The green accents and silver color were chosen to represent the customer's passion for the Porsche 918.

The custom fuel tank was made in house by Shaw's Dave Rollinson and it also uses cues from sportscar air intake design.

Pretty cool, huh?

Porsche inspired harley isn't too bad at all, i actually like what they did here, a bit of euro flavor in the mix. Still not something I would go for, it's not for everyone.

Its a bit of a strange mix. Harley is absolutely American and Porsche is definitely European. This is a mix of the two. I think it turned out well though. Most Harley riders want something that looks like a Harley and not like a Porsche though I would think.

Yea was going to say the same thing Yusef, its a strange mashup of cultures. Porsche with their road racing heritage and cutting edge performance, and Harley who is virtually unchanged since the days of the war. Big burly cruisers that blow your ear drums

I guess some may say it's about time this happened. Europeans have harleys and choppers and alter them to their liking, good chance some already have harleys/choppers like the above.

Not something im in to and would buy, but i think it's cool.

Harley and Porsche have a past. Porsche helped design the vrod motor that helped father the street motor. So it makes sense.
