Gasoline Motor Co. Transformed A Harley Sportster Into This ‘Frisco Chopper’

Back in Spring of 2018, rum purveyor, Sailor Jerry tasked Aussie custom motorcycle builders, Gasoline Motor Co. with whipping up a one-off scrambler build based on a 2008 Triumph Bonneville. After it became clear that the Bonnie build heavily resonated with the rum brand’s audience, Sailor Jerry has once again commissioned a bespoke scoot from the Sydney shop, this time constructed around a Harley-Davidson Iron 883.

Dubbed the “SJ2,” this Sportster-turned-Frisco chopper rocks a new front-end complete with a contrast-cut machined front-wheel, a custom set of swept-back window bars, one-off “fat fork shrouds” from Lowbrow Customs, and a shallow-profile 4.5” LED headlight. Moving back, there’s a 1.45-gallon peanut tank emblazoned with the Sailor Jerry logo that houses a sunken Motogadget Motoscope Mini digital display (and an EFI fuel pump). Out in back, a custom saddle has been paired with a flared-up, shaved-down rear-fender off a 1970s Harley Shovelhead, plus the aft end sports Progressive shocks, a wheel disc insert, and vintage Firestone tractor-style rubber. Other noteworthy elements include a chain final-drive conversion, an S&S Cycles intake, RSD mid-controls, micro-LED Kellerman signals, a Sailor Jerry-branded primary cover, and a tracker-style exhaust capped off with a reverse cone muffler. Best of all: the rum brand is scheduled to give the SJ2 away to one very lucky customer.
