Kuzuri: A Harley XL1200 Sportster custom from Thrive

If there?s a rising force in the modern custom world, it?s Indonesia. It?s no longer surprising to see a world-class middleweight caf racer roll out of a Jakarta workshop, and the top shops are now spreading their wings and tackling the heavy metal.
One of those shops is Thrive Motorcycle, with a sweet succession of Yamaha and Royal Enfield builds to their name. They?re often pushing the design envelope into angular new directions rarely seen before.

It?s still a surprise to see the chopper influence in this latest build, even though it retains the super-clean lines and finishing we expect from ace fabricators Indra Pratama and Barata Dwiputra.
?The project kicked off over two years ago,? says Thrive?s Putra Agung. ?One of our good friends, Reuben, asked if we had a Harley engine available for a new build?and by coincidence, we did.?

The engine in question was from a year 2000 Harley XL1200 Sportster, and part of an order direct from the USA. The Evo motor was in rude health, and suited Reuben?s desire for a reliable, modern drivetrain.
Thrive has a custom parts division called T/H/R/V, so the V-twin became the test bed for a whole range of new parts?mostly primary, cam, sprocket and rocker covers, plus a new air filter.

?We fitted some to the bike, and then made a few more custom parts to stretch the design as far as we could.?
?We?ve planned to build a chopper since the day the Harley engines arrived,? says Putra. ?And Reuben is a chopper enthusiast. He?s also a person who loves to see where new ideas might lead.?

?We visited a couple of workshops in Japan and saw a lot of great bikes at the Yokohama show?especially the ?traditional Japanese’ chopper.? The XL1200 is now called Kuzuri, which translates to ?wolverine? in Japanese.
A custom rigid frame was ordered from metallurgical wizard Andi at Brodonolo Custom Garage, an eight-hour drive away in Central Java. As soon as it was finished, Thrive starting measuring and shaping aluminum sheet.

Over several months, the Thrive crew fabricated the new bodywork in-house. That meant building a gas tank, the sleek tail unit (which does double duty as a fender), the oil tank, the electrical box, and the headlight surround.
?We aimed for a design that could be timeless,? says Putra. ?The looks and details are streamlined, to present an image of sleekness and cleanliness.?

Thrive?s own custom parts are everywhere, right down to the breather system and exhaust shield.
On went mini gullwing-style bars, homemade switchgear and footpegs. There?s a throttle unit with cabling running through the bars, and Mooneyes grips. And yes, there?s only one lever on those bars?the front hub is brakeless. This is one Harley that will need to be ridden with care on Jakarta?s busy roads?

?We also chopped the forks to get the stance we?re looking for,? says Putra. ?New shrouds add to the slim and sleek look.?
There?s an Avon Speedmaster on a 21? wheel at the front, with a classic ribbed Fi...
