Injustice Customs: Harley-Davidson Cafe Racer

One of the reasons for the Sportster’s incredible longevity is that it’s so interchangeable. Whether you’re swapping parts between Sportsters, or picking bolt-ons from any number of aftermarket companies, the possibilities are endless.

Swedish shop Injustice Customs have taken full advantage of that on this build. It started out as a Sportster Forty-Eight, but has an entirely different stance now, thanks to the 19F/18R wheels from a Sportster Roadster. They were acid dipped to shed their black coating, and then finished in a glorious matte gold.

Injustice kept the stock forks, but shortened them and coated them with a Ti-Nitrid coating. Adjustable Öhlins shocks were installed to pick up the rear, and the subframe was trimmed down. The original stubby fuel tank’s gone, replaced by a longer item from another Sporty. The tail section’s a RSD part, trimmed down heavily to suit the build.

Other bolt-ons include clip-ons, and a new top yoke and exhaust from RSD. The air filter is from Vance & Hines, and there’s a Screamin’ Eagle tuner to help it run right. Injustice also trimmed down the wiring loom, and fitted new cables and brake lines.

It’s a pretty tidy example of a Sporty Cafe, and Injustice Customs commissioned us to finish it off with a slick livery that includes checkerboards as a nod to the original cafe racer culture.
