intricate ‘tattoo’ carvings cover this silver harley davidson

 

On the occasion of Tokyo Auto Salon 2022, Japanese motorcycle body shop Iron Paddock has collaborated with artist Takahiko Izawa from Rohan/Izawa Art and Design studio to create a dazzling Harley Davidson with a metallic 3D engraved exterior. The silver body of the eye-catching chopper is covered in intricate carvings of floral ornamental patterns that resemble Irezumi tattoos and evoke the elegance and style of a traditional craft.

Izawa’s metal paint and impressive technical features

 

It took about a year for Iron Paddock (see more here) to build the vehicle, and another year for Takahiko Izawa (see more here) to cover the exterior in his original ‘Metal Paint’ — a type of paying that has a lot of brilliance and durability while also preventing discoloration and damage from ultraviolet rays. The result sees a gleaming motorcycle covered in engraved ‘tattoo’ patterns.

 

In addition to its impressive exterior, the motorcycle features an original shark side muffler attached to Screamin Eagle Pro High-Performance XL Cams, and a powerful PowerVision flash tuner device that ensures peak performance. The powerful rear area is of course replaced with the shark bagger kit, which is an Iron Paddock signature, as is the 14-inch up handlebar. the beautiful line connecting the stretched gasoline tank, the original console, and the side cover is also a highlight.
