Shaw Speed Sportster Custom XLST3 13 April 15
Shaw Speed & Custom, based near Lewes, East Sussex in the UK, was created in 2009 and after many years of customising Harley-Davidsons, the company decided that the way forward was to take the customisation process and their experience to another level.
The XLST3 was the third motorcycle to be built in their iconic Strike True family. It follows the successful peerage of the STI and World Championship winning STII.
The bike was built on a 2011 XL1200N but with several key modifications. The modifications start with an in-house custom-built exhaust system. The drive system has been converted to a chain driven system. The stock front end has been fettled with titanium nitraded forks, progressive springs and XL883N lowers.
A braced swing arm and Ohlins rear shocks keep the rear wheel planted. Performance machine brake system has been hooked up to Roland Sands Design black Ops rotors.
The frame has had a make over with rear fender rails chopped and smoothed. The kick up rear fender has been crafted to accommodate the dirt inspired road legal knobblies. The low profile rims give the bike a racing feel.
The standard tank was replaced with an RSD vintage tank. The performance tuned engine has had its engine cases anodised to accentuate the clean paintwork from Image Design Custom.
