In the final sixth transactions Jeff G. Holt, editor in chief of Hot Bike magazine met up with Led Sled’s Pat Patterson at Ohio’s famed Harley-Davidson dealership to take delivery and hand over a brand-new 1200cc Sportster motor. This motor, which was donated by Harley-Davidson, is Pat’s powerplant of choice on his full-on custom bike build. “I went with the 1200 motor because Sportsers are what we are famous for building.” Stated Pat. “seeing the amount of killer bikes we have been seeing come out of Led Sled as of late, I simply cannot wait to see the bike that Pat comes up with.” Said Jeff G. Holt.
Since Hot Bike has seen all six builders, the build-off is officially underway. We will be meeting back up with all of the other Speed and Style builders weekly to see their progress. You can follow the hashtag #HotBikeSpeedAndStyle on your favorite social media channel for all of the action!
