Hot Bike’s Speed and Style Fabrication Showdown goes to Harley-Davidson of Salt Lake City to meet up with Andy Carter of Pangea Speed

In the fifth of six transactions Jeff G. Holt, editor in chief of Hot Bike magazine met up with Pangea Speed’s Andy Carter at Utah’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 Andy’s powerplant of choice on his “Digger” style custom bike build. “I went with the 1200 Sporty motor because it’s light, fast, and looks good. Said Andy. The amount of off-the-wall and flat-out amazing Sportster-powered builds coming out of Pangea Speed, I am really fired up to see what kind of wild design Andy comes up with.” Stated Jeff G. Holt.

Since Hot Bike has seen five of the six builders, Jeff is now off to the final city and Harley-Davidson dealership before the build-off gets officially underway. We will be meeting up with the other Speed and Style builder; Pat Patterson next week and we will be bringing you each of these six builder’s two-wheeled creations as they happen!
