Crabmotors' HD Sportster is stout, dirty & all purpose. It's a hybrid of many things. It's a 1200cc cruiser that wants to be a dual sport and has the soul of a bobber. On paper these things might seem disparate but as you can see here the sum is more than its parts and the result is quite appealing.
They set out to build a Sportster that had some off road capabilities for journeying and camping in and around their home of Lucerne, Switzerland and from the looks of it they achieved their goal and then some. The bike looks ridden hard & put to the test and instead of prettying the bike up for the photo shoot with soap and wax they left it wearing the mud like a badge of honor. The bike was then handed over to the talented photographer Lorenz Richard for documentation of the Mechadoll's exploits and capabilities. The resulting motorcycle & photo-set are, for lack of a better word... Gnarly.
