Classic Harley-Davidson motorcycle completely rebuilt in 4 minutes | Redline Rebuild - S1E8

  • Published on Jan 10, 2018
  • Last summer we rebuilt the Ironhead V-twin engine from our Frankenstein 1957 Harley-Davidson XL Sportster as part of our Redline Rebuild time-lapse video series. Now, after a bunch more photos, a few more busted knuckles, and some late nights, we present you with our completed custom ’57 Sportster time-lapse build. She spit some fire and gave Davin’s right leg quite the workout from all of the kick starts, but she’s finally good to go and eagerly awaiting the spring thaw to stretch her legs on the open road.

    Exellent what a beautiful bike very rewarding its artwork i have rebuilt 2 bikes a 73 FLF Shovelhead and a 55 FL with a 96 single cam evo in it, although it took me a tiny bit longer... Tip with an old bike the first thing you should do is put a new wiring loom through it saves much stress...Stay upright everyone be safe...

    This is hands down, the WORST how-to video I've ever seen. Tried to follow along with it for my own bobber rebuild. By the time I got on the bike lift, they were already done!!!! How are normal people supposed to work at that speed?!?! 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️
