Ironwood Chain Smoker

It has been a few months since Husqvarna announced the release of the spectacular Vitpilen 701, since then motorbike customising shops have been thinking about potential customizations. But it is not easy to modify a bike that looks so fine out the box, unless you give it to Ironwood of course. The bike has an inspiring, minimalist design with futuristic features but also classic inspiration, high quality components and top performance, that is, a cocktail of ingredients that awakens the imagination of any customiser. Named "Chain Smoker" the custom build has had some subtle changes that managed to make it look so much better. The biggest change is happening out back, by lopping off the tail and further exposing the frame and engine components beneath the seat, they gave the bike a even more compact look. They also fitted a custom leather seat with beautiful integrated LED indicator and tail lights, and re-mounted the OEM taillight. They finished it of with a striking angular geometric camouflage paint job on the tank.
