Hollister Riot

Our build – Hollister Riot 

Using a Softail Slim as the base model, we tried to create a masterpiece that pays respect to the old Panheads and Knuckleheads of past years. The springer front-end stands out as a main feature of the build, with custom bars, an original style muffler from a 1930’s Harley-Davidson and a custom-made 2—1 exhaust setup with old school ribbing and a chain and sprocket.

The Milwaukee-Eight engine has the most identifiable heads since the Shovelhead and were a key feature in the build alongside an original-style solo saddle seat slimmed down and a paint scheme that pays respects to Harley race bikes of the 1940’s completing the vintage look.

The name of our bike, the Hollister Riot, is a reference to the Hollister Riot of 1947 at the AMA Sanctioned Gypsy Tour Motorcycle Rally in the town of Hollister, California, where Harley-Davidson enthusiasts gathered to party hard, while the number 16 is a reference to Jimmy Chan who made history with his three consecutive wins of the Springfield Mile and was inducted into the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame in 1998.
