EL DIABLO CUSTOM – THE ITALIAN DEVIL OF FRANKFURT

Regardless of whether you call it El DIABLO, or IL DIAVOLO in Italian, it is and remains a diabolical plan hatched by Angelo Pagano of the Harley Factory in Frankfurt.

The true story of how a custom bike is created from an original Low Rider 117 EL DIABLO from the Icon collection, as it should actually have looked.

At the Mallorca Bike Week, Angelo showed me the first pictures of a completely dismantled EL Diablo Low Rider 117, and a chill ran down my spine. Who does something like that, was my first thought, who would come up with the idea and dismantle a brand new Low Rider 117 EL DIABLO , limited to 1500 pieces, from the Harley-Davidson Icon collection

Angelo's answer to the question was! “I want to do this right!” Wait for it to finish! My next thought was, they're about to pick him up, but he's dead serious.

And in fact, the dismantled pile of Low Rider 117 in the photo was actually Angelo's personal EL DIABLO. For the 20th anniversary of the Harley Factory Frankfurt he let the devil out of the bag, at least half of it, it wasn't quite finished yet, I was allowed to take a look at it, but didn't post anything.

He didn't promise too much. what an awesome bike !!

This is what it should look like!

Beautiful with lots of chrome and a clear window, plus a bench specially made in San Diego by Saddlemen. The dash cover in chrome, the fairing painted black from the inside and the wheels again in chrome, the handlebars in chrome, the fork clamps in chrome and to top it off, a Jekill & Hyde made just for Angelo, his “AP69 EL DIABLO” and of course chrome-plated Exhaust system so you can hear the devil clearly when he drives up with his chrome-plated 117 Milwaukee-Eight engine.

The sissy bar is logically also in Chrome and now the question of all questions is, why doesn't the El Diablo look exactly like this in series? Chrome was already very popular in the 80s, why wasn't it adopted from the original, the 1984 FXRT Sport Glide?

The Icon series is really something special, but it's amazing to see how it can be improved even further. What the Italian devil Angelo pulled out of the glowing hell here could hardly be photographed, so the chrome sparkled. You will soon be able to see them in the store at the Harley Factory Frankfurt, the visit is worth it.
