Inspired by the street tracker look, Mark Noyes of AXR Cycle decided to build himself a Sportster with street tracker styling cues that was still comfortable for 200 miles days in the saddle. Impressively, it’s claimed to be over 100 pounds lighter than Harley’s period XR1200.
This build actually started with a Sportster 883 but Mark built the motor up with Zipper Super Hammer heads, Andrews cams, and JIMS roller rockers. Other important additions were a Mikuni carb, 5 speed transmission, Dyna ignition, Supertrapp exhaust, Showa adjustable forks, Works rear shocks, Sun rims, and plenty more.
The immense weight savings is mostly due to extensive use of aluminum, which comprises the subframe, custom gas tank, belt guard, air cleaner, cam cover, seat, and rear fender. The light subframe also raises the seat up to 32 inches. The seller reached out to me to note that this Sportster is different from the rest specifically thanks to the 18″ rear wheel, 14.5″ shocks, and custom rear sub frame, all of which contribute to the regular riding position with a slight forward lean. The seat and rear cowl are modified Triumph Thruxton units and the hidden rear fender is a slick addition. For more on the AXR Sportster, check out this article on The Kneeslider.
