Ridiculous Custom Harley-Davidson Bel Air is 50s Themed

Lupo Racing's '57 Bel Air Custom Harley won the Most Beautiful Motorcycle award at the recent Grand National Roadster Show in Pomona, CA.

Lupo racing chose a '57 Chevrolet Bel Air as the muse for this creation. The shape of the Bel Air's rear wing has been adapted and integrated into the bike's shape. Due to the odd contruction of this build,additional suspension hydraulics had to be installed.

Cool looking bike, but not exactly something that I can see myself rding around on everyday. LOL

Pretty cool looking! Only thing I would have done differently is, I would have set the rear fender so the top was level with the ground. Looks like it is sagging in the middle the way it is.

The attention to detail and level of paint quality is surreal

But will it turn? :P

Its kinda cool looking but it just seems totally impractical. The ground clearance barely exists and it just doesn't seem easy to ride at all. I could see it cruising slowly in a parade or something.

No thanks, i'll pass. I appreciate the work that went into it but I would never ride it nor spend the money to build it.

Wow, that's fugly.
I can appreciate the work and fabrication, along with the attention to detail, but it's still ugly.

It would be a hand full in a cross wind. But then it is a show bike and isn't made to be ridden.
