Welcome to the official site of Broke Bastard Racing. Home grown, blown, Harley speed from the Pacific Northwest. Strip, street, or salt! This site, like the bike, is always UNDER CONSTRUCTION.

News

2018 brought an updated bike and a lot of promise. New rear mounted fuel tank and a dummy tank up front to lean on with new custom paint. With last years pilot on board the team was ready to up the record that they set last year. Unfortunately, the salt gods had a different plan. The good old motor finally had enough and you can see the results below. The good news is that the team has already secured a new donor bike. The base of the rebuild is a 2004 XL1200C. John is hard at work getting prepped for 2019. There will be more details as the rebuild progresses.


Blown....and not in a good way.

About this site

I've been following John for years and I thought he needed a website. Being also broke, it's a one pager with a redirect to a subdomain on my main site - bweir.com. Most images were taken or given with permission. If you see something out of place, let me know. Contact me at brad@bweir.com.
