Hazan Motorworks Custom Harley Ironhead


Some men take up model building for a hobby. Others, golf. Not Maxwell Hazan. 

The founder and soul craftsman of Hazan Motorworks spends the better part of his free time looking at motorbike engines - which isn't as weird as it might sound. From an ugly lump of motoring machinery, Hazan envisions creations of unparalleled beauty. They aren't chopper's or head-turning 'café' bikes, but functional works of art. At least, functional to a point.

Take his latest work: the Supercharged Ironhead. Hazan had wanted to build a bike based around a much smaller 1949 BSA 500 - but the Indy tires he had purchased for the project were far too big. Having got his hands on the huge block of a 1965 Harley Ironhead, he sketched out an impression of the lines and curves of the bike he believed should be built around such an engine. He then shaped each of the pieces of aluminium bodywork by hand.

After 6 months of banging and polishing, the 8.5-foot one-of-a-kind beauty was complete. With no lights, no indicators and a far from simple handlebar set up, it's anything but practical - Hazan even assures that the wooden seat is "very uncomfortable". But, considering that it's a piece of art, we don't really mind.
