After three months, 20,000 photos, and more than our share of hurdles (especially finding parts), we’ve completed another Redline Rebuild time-lapse video. This time around, Hagerty’s Davin Reckow tackles a two-wheel project.
A bit of a Frankenstein bike with the heart of a 1957 Harley-Davidson XL Sportster. No seriously, its engine is an ironhead V-twin from a first-year Sportster. So strap on your helmet because we’re about to speed things up a bit.
Follow along in the video down below that will allow you to ride along with this Harley rebuild that takes you inside of what it takes to do something like this.
While it might not exactly give you all of the down and dirty details that go into a job like this, it can certainly help you to get an idea of all of the time and effort that ends up getting invested in this lengthy process.
