British-based custom-bikes maker Shaw Speed & Custom is now presenting the Shaw F1-XLR custom bike, based on the Nightster. The bike constructed on the idea of mixing old super-bike racers style, like the Harley-Davidson board racers from the 1920s, with state of the art contemporary technology and partly looks.
The prototype bike was dyed in a beautiful smoky grey tone resembling the color of the McLaren Formula 1 Team. It is still part of a project that Shaw started in collaboration with an Australian businessman. The Shaw F1-XLR Nightster sports the Nightster 1200 V-twin engine with a set of unique custom pipes and a ram-air intake. In addition, it features modified Covington rocker covers, larger pushrod tubes and a shortened cam cover.
