Maidstone Harley-Davidson Teams Up With Mutt Motorcycles
Black Dog – Custom Iron 883 Mutt
We love our lightweight small cc bikes here at Mutt but sometimes, just sometimes we like to add our stamp and build bigger cc bikes.
With a background in bespoke custom bikes and more specifically, Harley-Davidson motorcycles, it was inevitable that our Mutt team would reunite with the legendary American machines. This opportunity presented itself when Maidstone Harley-Davidson approached us to build a series of stripped down ‘Muttified’ bikes for riders who want to either ignite their Mutt journey or carry it on; and we couldn’t have been more excited about this partnership, after all, if anyone understands cool purpose-built Harley’s, it’s these guys!
Maidstone Harley delivered the Iron 883 here at our Mutt headquarters, completely stock with its big comfy seat, long sensible fenders and standard colour scheme, so it was time to go do it up Mutt style!
First things first with this build was stripping the bike to ensure it left us with a blank canvas, a canvas that allowed us to apply our key ethos of ‘less is more’, so off came the tank, body work, stock pipes and anything else that didn’t quite spell M-u-t-t.
The standard tank was swapped out for a narrower lower profile aluminium tank that still retains the look of the Sportster defining tank but gives the bike a much leaner look. The back end was slammed with short shocks, the rear fender struts were removed, and that super funky little tailpiece added to give the rear end a smoothed out look with a hint of ¼ mile madness.
Wide Firestone rubber carries the Mutt vibe through this bike along with the low Biltwell bars and Motogadget grips and concealed M-Blaze indicators. Lastly the factory pipes were switched up for free flowing blacked out custom pipes that makes this Mutt bark like a big dog should.
Fancy moving up from your 125cc but still want to stay with the Mutt family whilst riding something unique? Then look forward to plenty more of these custom builds with Maidstone HD as we keep your Mutt cravings in check whilst stepping up from a 125cc motorcycle.
This puppy is available now at Maidstone Harley-Davidson with a rocking price tag of £13,995 but remember, this build is one of one and completely unique. To find out more, click here
