Last weekend I rode by Conte Kustoms to see what they're up to. It turns out that Raf got a killer deal on this bone stock 883 and had to get it. Work is well under way to make this into a much better looking bike than the factory ever envisaged. Raf even ended up selling all the take off parts for enough to cover a big chunk of the cost of the new stuff.
For you metric guys don't worry, Raf hasn't abandoned you. He will still more than happily work on and customize your metric cruiser. If you're looking to get your bike squared away at a more than reasonable price swing by and check these guys out!
