Based in France, Milwaukee Belle have created what we think is one of the most stunningly good looking Harley customs ever – the 883 XWL Warboy. The Warboy, which started its life as a 1994 Harley 883 Sportster XL, is a custom-built replica of the military-spec 1942 Harley WL Liberator and comes with 18-inch wheels (shod with Avon tyres), an ammunition box, machine gun scabbard, full windshield, saddlebags, air-pump and clamps and WW2-style black-out equipment. The attention to detail is simply brilliant – the bike looks stunning.

Apart from the bits already mentioned above, Milwaukee Belle also offer a range of accessories for the Warboy. These include a canteen set, luggage rack ties, black-out mirror wrap and military-style fire extinguisher and bracket. And while it may look period, the bike has a full complement of modern bits – electric start, front and rear disc brakes, 12-volt electrical system, Fournales rear shock-absorbers (no springs, fully air operated!) and a contemporary five-speed gearbox instead of the original WL’s three-speed hand-shift gearbox.

Milwaukee Belle plan to offer this bike in various versions, including WLA, WLC and South-African Desert-spec models. Civilian and Racer versions will also be available. For more information, you can send them an email on milwaukee.belle@free.fr
