The Bavarian taste on American motorcycle

It is very rare if the builder used Buell motorcycles as a base for their modifications. Most often they remodel its elder brother, Harley-Davidson. But Buchholz Custom, the motorcycle builder from Germany instead used the Buell X1 and chose to adopt a capacity of 1,200 cc engine from Harley-Davidson Sportster as their media creation this time.

The Harley-Davidson classic technology ie air-cooled pushrod V-twin replaced by Thuderstorm cylinder heads with large valve and combustion chamber are painted over. The result is an increase in power of about 95 bhp or increase of 60 percent compared with Sportster conventional engine.

Not only that, Michi Heyer as the builder of this motorcycle also improve the performance through the replacement of standard carburetor with Mikuni, then Crane HI-4 Single Fire ignition system and ForceWinder/K&N for its air intake and also Akrapovic products for motorcycle exhaust.

Although the Sportster frame is still maintained, but Buchholz Custom prefer the Honda VTR 1000 RC51 SP2's front end so that a more steady control like a sport bike. By handling more perfect after the Honda CB1100SF X11 swing arm paired with Ohlins shock absorbers. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | BUCHHOLZ CUSTOM]
