    Great video, beautiful photography.
    This seems to be a promotional video for a dealership, Roberto Rossi being the manager of Harley-Davidson Mantova.

    I had to do a little research...... cut and pasted from http://www.bikeexif.com/harley-david...er-1200-custom


    Apparently he made 5 of these and they sold for 22,000 Euro each.

    HARLEY SPORTSTER “STELLALPINA”

    Roberto Rossi is one of Italy’s best-known Harley-Davidson concessionarias. He’s also got petrol coursing through his veins. His dealership includes a museum: a showcase for a personal collection of classic motorcycles bolstered by an authentic Mille Miglia Alfa Romeo 1750 GS Zagato (once owned by Tazio Nuvolari) and vintage tractors.
    Rossi often turns his hand to custom motorcycles, and this is his latest. He describes it as “An unconventional Sportster modified for mountain joyrides,”—hence the name Stellalpina (Alpine star).








    The core of this bike is a 2004 Harley-Davidson XL1200 Sportster, but Rossi has modified the tank—now set lower and further back—and shortened the rear subframe. Large-diameter Fat Boy forks have been grafted on, and the tires are now Firestone scrambler-style rubber, 19” at the front and 16” at the back.

    The back fender is a modified Softail fitment. The front light is Bates, and the rear is Lucas. The bars, diamond-stitched leather seat and exhaust system of Stellalpina are all custom-fabricated.

    It’s a clean and purposeful look, as much about function as form. The bike carries its weight lower, and is better suited to the twists and turns of alpine roads.
    “The top of the mountain now is closer,” says Rossi.

    It is a well produced vid, but as for subject matter and entertainment value, I give it a less than hearty....meh!

    Nice XL. That's one I could use to do those wells on the weekends! Gravel roads are a bitch on the XR.

    I'd love to have your weekend job, Joe.


    And the XR is a GREAT gravel bike .......unless you still have that 17" wheel up front

    put a 21" wheel up front and some dual sport tires, dude!, it'd be awesome

    If I can get done before it gets baking hot outside, I'm loving it!

    It rained one day. That sucked. There was no where to go for hours.

    Winter will require the truck, though. I know. I'm in Texas, and it doesn't get as cold here as it does in places like Oklahoma. But, I'm a wussy in cold weather.
