Inspired by the old story of finding a pristine car or bike in a barn and riding it off into the sunset, Zylstra H-D made their version of that mythic motorcycle in this Sportster for Harley-Davidson's Custom Kings competition. So far, the custom XL has done pretty well for the dealership; the bike's made the cut during all the rounds of voting to date. Will it continue into the semi-finals? Cast your vote and then check back on Tuesday when the survivors are announced. Of this bike itself, Zylstra H-D says, "Riders dreamed about keeping a Harley-Davidson forever... Regardless of the rust, dirt, and lack of chrome. They hid them away while they went off to fight wars for the freedom we enjoy. It's the kind of bike style people dream about finding in a barn.... Cranking it up and riding off."
