Of all the Asian countries, Japan has the highest profile in the custom scene, and has even exported the whole genre of SR400 modifications. But other countries are getting more press now, with Australian shop Deus moving into Bali and the whole Indonesian scene gaining momentum. Now it looks like the turn of Taiwan, helped by classy new magazines such as Free Biker. This hunkered-down Sportster custom is called Guerrilla: it’s just graced the pages of Free Biker, and comes from an upstart new Taipei shop called Rough Crafts. According to builder Winston Yeh, “The initial idea for this bike was to get it to look custom, without being too ‘far out’—because Taiwan has a crazy regulation that all bikes bigger than 250cc have to pass an annual exam after they are older than five years. The bike is compared to the stock picture and if it looks too different, it will be hard to pass. With that in mind, I tried to create a bike that has similar profile to stock. So you probably think it’s ‘normal’ from far away, but you can see the customization when up close.” The bike takes Harley’s Nightster theme a step further, with a chopped front end, new bars, bodywork and lighting—and a terrific exhaust system that adds to the compact, muscular vibe. Excellent work from a builder worth keeping an eye on, so check out Rough Crafts’ blog for regular updates.

    Hello Winston,

    Don’t want to bother with the same questions, but I really like what you have done to this bike. Is there any way you can email me a price list for all the custom parts added and can you provide any info on how to add the larger wheels. Really interested in the exhaust, seat, and rear fender setup. Thanks for your time and keep up the hard work.

    This bike is essence of BADASS!!!! I’m in the process of modifying my Iron and want this look (16 inch front wheel).I just completed the stage 1 (1200 CC) upgrade and forward controls.
    Every Harley dealer and local shop in the US says I’ll have to change out the entire front end. I don’t mind however, am interested in your pricing to gauge an estimate. Thanks for your help and great work.
