Custom Harley-Davidson: Unorthodox of Warr

Custom Harley-Davidson

London based custom Harley-Davidson designer Charlie Stockwell of Warr’s Harley-Davidson, Europe’s oldest Harley dealership, introduces his latest creation: “Unorthodox.”

It’s a striking distance from the designs we are used to from Stockwell and Warr’s Harley-Davidson. Best known for his award winning and trend setting vintage designs, no-one was expecting such a bike to be wheeled out of the Warr’s workshop on the King’s Road in the heart of Chelsea.

He dared to break tradition and did exactly that. A breath taking cocktail of chrome and carbon fibre. Neo-vintage styling. No leather or tassels on this Harley.

Nearly everything on “Unorthodox” is hand made by Stockwell himself. The original Harley-Davidson Fatboy was stripped down leaving just the engine and chassis. The oil tank was removed from beneath the seat and the chassis re-shaped to drop the solid one-of-a-kind carbon fibre solo saddle to an extreme slammed ride height.

A new oil tank was fabricated to fit inside the original, tear-drop shaped, Fatboy fuel tank. Stockwell crafted the high-low dual exhaust system which rather cleverly houses the rear lights in the carbon mufflers.

To enhance the bikes fierce stance only a pair of MotoGP-spec Ohlins front forks will do. It doesn’t stop there, custom made CNC triple trees mount the forks to the frame. Brembo monobloc calipers are fitted to deal with the brute force of the new tuned 113ci Screamin’Eagle H-D Engine which has been treated with glossy black powder coat and the cooling fins Diamond Cut for a show sparkle.

Carbon fiber, race style clip-on handlebars are fitted with Performance Machine controls to match the huge wheels wrapped in Metzeler rubber, 3″ open primary drive and foot controls.

“Unorthodox” will be on display in the Warr’s showroom on the King’s Road in London until the summer when its lucky owner will take delivery. There is more to come form Warr’s and Stockwell in the coming weeks when we will see his next entry into the Custom Bike World Championship at the end of May.
