A miniature version of the Harley-Davidson Forty-Eight can be seen in the frame. In our country, we’ve seen some phenomenal restorations, but this one is a piece of artwork. Sudus Customs transformed a TVS XL 50 (Luna) into a Harley-Davidson Forty-Eight.
The entire body of the Harley-Davidson Forty-Eight is handcrafted, according to Rakesh Babu, including the seats, engine covers, crankcase, head assembly, and exhaust system. The only way to tell it’s a TVS XL is the TVS badging on the engine case; otherwise, every other element looks so much like a Harley-Davidson Forty-Eight that you’d assume Harley-Davidson made a tiny duplicate of their own bike.
As can be seen in the photographs above, no changes were done to the TVS XL 50’s original chassis; all of the handcrafted pieces were simply attached to the existing frame. The V2 engine casing, which appears to be an exact but smaller replica of the original Harley’s V2 engine, as well as the twin exhaust system, although only one of them is working, can’t be determined out until the bike is running, spun our heads.
Sudus Customs has done an outstanding job. They’ve reformed the TVS XL 50 into a Harley-Davidson Forty-Eight. Check out their other restorations, which are equally as impressive as this one, and let us know what you think in the comments below.
