The Drayton Porkchop 1972 Harley Davidson Sportster The Build: Benny Thomas of BoneShaker started with a 1972 ironhead Sportster frame and motor, the bike needed to be low and fat so he laced a sportster drum brake rear hub to a 16” rim and a later sportster front disc hub to another 16” rim and shod them both with Firestone ANS tyres. A race bike with chunky tyres - what’s all that about? Depends what you are racing on…if you are slamming a quarter mile on a dirt track this bike would be pretty handy. To keep with the race vibe we went for clip on bars and shortened the forks by 4” and strutted the rear end, Benny Comments… "I hate master cylinders on handlebars so I set up a master cylinder operated by a cable lever, I didn’t want this set up totally hidden, I like to see working parts, I like to see the cables - the parts that make the bike stop and go."
