Almost a decade ago, Rough Crafts took the motorcycle world by storm with a blacked-out Harley-Davidson Sportster called ‘Iron Guerrilla.’ Now, after countless other magnificent custom builds (and more than a few imitators along the way), Winston Yeh decided it was time to revisit the bike that put him and his brand on the map with a special 2018 Harley-Davidson Fat Bob they’re calling ‘Mighty Guerrilla.’
Clearly, the bikes are kindred spirits, based on both the donor rides and the murdered-out matte colorways. But this new edition shows a level of refinement that speaks to just how much Rough Crafts has grown in the last decade. For starters, the donor had to be stripped down and cleaned up — including lowering the suspension and doing away with the unsightly body panels. Other alterations include a shorter Progressive Suspension rear shock, a front brake swap for Arlen Ness calipers and Performance Machine rotors, a new grille over the LED headlight, a swap-in of the brand’s own Fighter Bars, and a good deal more. We can’t help but imagine that when Harley-Davidson eventually sees this masterpiece they’re going to wish it was how they built the bike to begin with.
