Hot Bike

September 1984

Here is living proof that what goes around comes around. Minus the man-fro and rose-tinted glasses, this XL/M dragbike and 1985 FXRT would not look out of place on a cover of Hot Bike today despite it being 33 years later. We could even throw in a custom by Switzerland’s Hard Nine Choppers and complete all the cover lines.
