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.

    Hi, Can you send information on purchasing Rough Crafts parts , I would like to install that seat on my ‘48′. Thanks

  2. Marlo says:

    How much for the exhaust

  3. Marlo says:

    How much for the exhaust will it work with sportster 48

  4. Jason says:

    I love this bike Winston. Is that just a stock 16″ rear mag wheel placed on the front end? Could you work me up a price for that tripletree conversion, and will it work with stock Iron forks? Is your suspension lowered? I’d also like any pricing on that seat, rear fender setup.

  5. Chris says:

    Hi Winston,

    I must agree with all the comments on this blog, amazing bike. Just a quick question how was the ride with the larger front tire and do you have a spec list of what you added and took away, and a price list for the custom parts you added.

    Thanks for your time and please keep up the amazing work…


  6. mike says:

    Cool bike! I’ve been looking at pictures of your bike for a couple of days now, and i need to apply some of your style to my ‘98 sporty. I have a wide glide conversion on the front, so I think I can add the larger tire with little trouble. I could use a little info on how you were able to fit the large tire on the rear and still keep the belt drive. Could you also clairify the tire size and manufacture? Thank you.

  7. Silvio says:

    Hi Winston…

    Heya Winston. Man what a beautiful design. I came across your blog ages ago and somehow landed on it again and am once again stunned by the quality in this build.

    Am wanting to know what the cost and process is of ordering that front grill for the headlight. The pipes & heat shields. And finally the air cleaner.

    Once again mate. Brilliant design. It brings a real rough tough edge to the Iron 883

  13. Alex says:

    I’m very interested in purchasing the shield for the front headlight, tanks, rear fender/light combo and seat! also details on how I can get those tires on my iron

    Congratulations for your work. i would like to know how may i buy your crafts from Spain, but also i got a doubt about my iron because is from 2009 and i would like to replace the seat, the problem as you should know is the switchboard under the seat, does your seat cover totally this switchboard??
