Last summer we rebuilt the Ironhead V-twin engine from our Frankenstein 1957 Harley-Davidson XL Sportster as part of our Redline Rebuild time-lapse video series. Now, after a bunch more photos, a few more busted knuckles, and some late nights, we present you with our completed custom ’57 Sportster time-lapse build. She spit some fire and gave Davin’s right leg quite the workout from all of the kick starts, but she’s finally good to go and eagerly awaiting the spring thaw to stretch her legs on the open road.

Check out our most popular video series:
REDLINE REBUILDS: We spend hundreds of hours tearing apart old engines, machining and obsessively cleaning the parts, and reassembling it all. We exhaustively chronicle every step along the way with thousands of photos, then boil it down to a fast-paced but incredibly detailed time-lapse video. Share the satisfaction of the finish and the first fire-up!
BARN FIND HUNTER: Tom Cotter literally wrote the book(s) on barn finds, starting with The Cobra in the Barn. Tom travels North America in his 1939 Ford Woodie Wagon, searching for forgotten classics in barns, backyards, dusty garages, and scrapyards and meeting the fascinating characters who open the barn doors for him and tell him their stories.
WHY I DRIVE: Deep dive profiles of owners of interesting cars. Owners narrate, sharing their particular passion, with evocative on-the-road footage. We take you to their homes and garages, showing you firsthand the turn of the key, the first high-rpm upshift, and their favorite roads and destinations, whether it’s the local racetrack, ice cream parlor, or canyon road.
