Custom Harley-Davidson Dyna S&S T124 Black Edition

Icon Motosports is known for making some weird builds, and this custom Harley-Davidson nicknamed Homemade Sin is definitely a prime example of that. Check it out!

The best part of a custom build is often the confusion upon first look. Particularly odd builds with a mismatch of different parts from different manufacturers make the identification process more like a puzzle, and when every piece is put together, the end result is something remarkable.

While walking through Mama Tried, we ran into Davin Wirtanen, brand manager of Icon Motosports. Icon is one of the leading motorcycle protective apparel brands, making detailed and stylish helmets, jackets, gloves, pants, and footwear. The Portland, Oregon-based facility also builds a number of custom motorcycles with help from their many partners. Wirtanen gave us a closer look at “Homemade Sin,” a custom Harley-Davidson Dyna S&S T124 Black Edition.

“it’s a marketing tool,” Wirtanen says. “We build these things, and all the famous motorcycle websites want to feature them. Icon One Thousand is what we call the sort of boutique side of things we do out in our office with all the custom builds.”

This time, Icon went all out with its build, incorporating a number of interesting additions. The build started with a 124 in. V-twin black edition motor provided by S&S Motorsports that sits in a stock Harley-Davidson Dyna frame. The coolest addition has to be the aftermarket Ducati wide glide triple front end, which was an option for the Monster 900 back in the ’90s. Encasing the Monster forks are the shrouds and nacelle from a 1969 Honda Dream.

The mixing and matching of different components from different eras give the motorcycle a very unique look; Wirtanen admitted that Icon is known for specializing in “weird” builds.

“We have Nitron suspension shocks in the back because those guys have helped us a lot with our builds,” he says. “We told them what we’re doing, and they’re used to us coming up with weird ideas. But all in all, everything has to be ridden once we’re done building it.

“Roaring Toys built us this beautiful beast mode swing arm. Speed Merchant supplied some pegs. There’s a custom in-house exhaust with S7S mufflers and some more S&S stuff on the side, as well as a Honda CB900F tank with dual filters.”

Because of all the odd additions, the stock tail section from the aforementioned Honda wouldn’t fit on the bike. Wirtanen and the team fixed the issue in-house by 3-D-printing their own tail and fiber glassing the inside to protect it from shattering.

The bike also features a BDL belt drive, custom cover, EBC brake rotors and Vintage Abe wheels. The motorcycle is certainly an acquired taste, but everything put together makes quite an exciting package. To add to the weirdness factor even more, the team at Icon installed a cigarette lighter and an ashtray in the front bucket, which is Wirtanen’s favorite part.

“You never know when you’ll need that little Marby Red.”
