If you are curious, the Immortale was built upon a Harley-Davidson 883 Iron motorcycle and underwent some serious makeover to before entering the competition. The body receives several custom made body panels that are painted in neon green paint. The body panels have been carved out from FRP fibre which helps in reduced weight.

Another noticeable feature is the girder suspension upfront and a mono-shock at the rear. A futuristic looking three-pod headlight looks straight out of a sci-fi flick and so does most of the motorcycle, especially in that green paint. The under-seat dual muffler exhaust system adds a sporty element to the former cruiser. The mod-job took a total of two and a half months.

How did we like the motorcycle?

The idea is intriguing but the finishing, at least in images, does not look convincing. The tank design reminds us of the Yamaha FZ-16, the naked roadster from Japanese two-wheeler major. That being said, we really appreciate the efforts and man-hours invested in the build and look forward to see more such awe-inspiring mod jobs from Faizan Saith and Legacy Custom Motorcycles.
