Headcase Customs Cafe Sportster

Posted by on Mar 1, 2013 in Bikes | Comments Off on Headcase Customs Cafe Sportster

Casey “Headcase” Johnson from Headcase Kustoms has been in the paint game for a while and always does some amazing things. Known primarily for his artistic paint skills, he’s collaborated with experienced builders and has also built some pretty awesome bikes as well (BSA Chopper via StreetChopperMag).

This time he had an opportunity to customize a Sportster and was excited to get his hands on a “newer” (1995) Harley. He started by shortening and shrinking the tank, hand fabricated a great tail section, clip ons and many other detailed parts along the way. When it came time to dial in the suspension he reached out to us for some Shocks and Fork Springs. We suggested our Lowering Fork Spring Kit and to run our 412 Series shocks. We also suggested him to remove the outer spring caps to give it more of a “Vintage” look and feel. Casey then hooked up with the guys over at Speed Merchant for some 39mm Fork Pre-Load Adjusters and now has dialed in the front and rear suspension for his Cafe build.

Casey plans on unveiling the bike in time to ride it to the El Diablo Run in May. We’ve included a gallery of photos of the bike and it’s current state. We are really excited to be apart of the build and can’t wait to see the final product. Stay tuned for more as it evolves.
