Very nice looking bike!!! But I wouldn't say they are the first. Rowe Machine has been building Sporty Customs since the 70's. Back then they almost built them on a full production level. At one point people use to think that was all they did.

The Sporty in you rpic is one nice looking bike. Nasty does a very nice job.

Here is a pic of a Rowe Sporty

ok , I can deal with that, Nasty bikes and Rowe Machine have been building cool sporty bikes even when concidered bitch bikes by some. Now everybody is trying to get on the bandwagon. I just wanted to give some props to the guys that have been doing it for a while now , that don't have the bankroll or noterioty that some other builders do now, with the tv craze that is going on and alot of new people into bikes are all about BRANDS NAMES !!! Not the people that have been doing it for years.

And who might that be that you're refering to? I don't remember any televised build-off were a XL motor was used. Not looking to throw stones, I'm just confused as to who these XL builders are that you're talking about with these huge bankrolls and household "brand names"?

I agree with you Pure. I think Nasty does an awesome job on the Sporty. They should get all the attention to their product and their talent. The bike in the pic is a very slick looking little ride. I also agree with the giving the guy that has been around longer then asphalt some PRIME TIME exposure. It was the only reason I mentioned Marc Rowe, it was in no way to take away from Nasty.

Both places make a sporty look good.

Mutant:

I think Pure was talking in general about the TV craze and brand name bike builers with the big bankrolls. I am not positive and don't want to talk for Pure but that was my take on what he said. I didn't think he just meant Sporty stuff.

I admire the fact that Rowe, Atlas, Nasty, Redneck, etc came up with their own platforms for the Sportster. A lot of guys/shops will jump on the bandwagon of different things which is fine but the innovators are the guys that truly drive the industry.

Nice Looking Bikes

I think the Sporty/Buell platform suffers a little with big and home builders because itís a cheap start into building a custom bike. If one chooses to use the XL power plant itís a good chance the builder is not usually going to spend another $15k in billet, chrome and paint to bring the bike up to say an average BBC level of fit and finish.

I will not rabbit on about how good a choice (Power to Price ratio) the XL motor is, but will point out that a majority of XL customs I have seen so far have been built for under $12K or less. The pictures you guys have above are fine examples of what can be done. I am hoping that my higher budget ($20k+) Buell build ends up the same caliber as the bikes above (when itís finally done!) I would love to encourage broader thinking in the choice of power, and some higher end XL/Buell builds. I truly believe itís a great motor choice for a custom build, not just because itís a 100 HP at the rear wheel, perfectly balanced in the frame and an easy motor to tweak and work on, but because it can be made to look good as any big twin.

The bike I posted. No cost was spared on anything. Custom in house pipes, custom in fender LED lights, $2,000.00 handbar set up all built in house. Custom one-off tranny case, built in house, custom one-off primary, primary cover, built in house. Custom brake set up, in house. 240mm rear wheel application, frame was completely built in house and designed to hold the 240, not a kit application.
It has a $6,000.00 paint job.

That bike has won 1st place at many shows, going up against big V-Twin customs.

I agree the platform can be a great starting place, people just need to take it to the next level and make a sweet ride.

im with the next guy when i see o.c.c garb and west coast stuff at walmart and some crossed eyed, 6 toothed, mulett flogging patron picking out their size i shed a single tear for the industry Your right nasty bikes, Rowe and other companies like themselves have been in the game for a while but if i walk up to the same tnn watching clem and ask what nasty bikes builds they might answer mentioning the magazine pa had in the bathroom growning up. i say to any company getting into the game good luck and may u be so lucky as the be considered on the band wagon cause theres a good chance you'll be making more money then the people bashing it.
p.s. marketing is a bitch
