Gentleman Jim Harley Sportster by Deus Ex Machina

Why name your custom 2008 Harley-Davidson 1200 EFI Sportster after a boxer from the late 1800s? Because James J. Corbett (“Gentleman Jim”) won the heavyweight title in 1892 by knocking out John L. Sullivan in the 21st round. Mind you, this was after going 61 rounds with Peter Jackson (probably not the Hobbit director) the year before. Well damn.

The fine gents at Deus Ex Machina say their Gentleman Jim punches just as hard, and it features a subframe from a Kawasaki W650 grafted onto the bike’s rear end for a pretty sharp look. Other highlights include Sato Racing rear sets, cafe-style Tingate swan neck clip-on bars, revised fork internals and alloy bodied Icon rear damping units, 18 and 19 inch wheels, custom fenders, and a custom RSD 2-into-1 exhaust system.
