Harley-Davidson Sportster 1200 Hooligan Flat Tracker

We saw this beautiful Harley-Davidson Sportster 1200 at Flat Out Friday, it was a killer in the Hooligan class. Check it out!

What could be more fun than flat track racing?  The dirtier, less precise form of motorcycle racing provides a ton of thrills and entertainment, mainly due to the distinct nature of the racing format. Flat track bikes have front and rear suspension, but only rear brakes. The lack of front braking allows for a much different cornering technique, with riders drifting in a sense.

When we attended Flat Out Friday, we saw a ton of cool custom bikes, especially in the Hooligan class. The quickly growing Hooligan class is unique in that racers rider motorcycles that aren’t designed for racing, making for some interesting matchups.

Today’s Ride of the Week is a Harley-Davidson Sportster 1200, a weapon of choice among many of the Hooligan classes across the U.S. This one in particular comes from Uke’s Harley-Davidson in Kenosha, WI.

While this beautiful, bright orange Hooligan flat tracker isn’t fully custom, it has had a few upgrades to the motor, a new carburetor, a rebuilt bottom end, some suspension work, and a new exhaust.

This District electric motorcycle from Cleveland-based LAND Moto caught our attention at the 2023 AIMExpo.

Electric motorcycles haven’t truly gained mass appeal yet from the public in the same way that electric cars and trucks have, and that’s due to two major flaws with current offerings. Battery tech just isn’t where it needs to be yet to assure a decent range – most e-motos simply can’t compete with a gas bike in that regard. And for the few that do have reasonable ranges, the price is above what most are willing to spend.
