Nr. 15 is Complete!

Please click on the Nr. 15 page for more pictures. This bike started its life as a 1996 Heritage Softail but is now ready to do some exploring off the pavement! A very special thanks goes out to Michael Selman of Bella Corse for providing invaluable parts, without which, this bike would look quite a bit different!

Nr. 14

Nr. 14 is now complete!

Built around a 2001 Sportster (883), this Harley has ditched its leather jacket for a tuxedo. Civilized and ergonomic touring bike for city maneuvers and roadside repair-ability. This is a simple bike without bells and whistles. It's reliable with classic and elegant looks; a throwback to the age of classy European touring bikes.

Nr. X

As there are currently 3 projects in the works and we still don't know which will be finished first, we will refer to this project as Nr. X. This bike is due to be painted by the customer and then back to Motonisto for wiring, etc. This bike started out as a 1989 Sportster but is definitely looking a more interesting! Here are a few pictures of the bike and the dashboard which was designed specifically for this motorcycle.
