The other day, in Sweden: “How in frozen Starköl can I protect my Sportster, when love sick Moose keep populating the roads, forcing riders to take offroad detours around them?“
Swedes who entertain such thoughts just take a piece of steel sheet metal and mold it into a „helmet for the nether parts“, using laser cutters and old fashioned hydraulic presses.
That’s roughly how this exclusive accessory for Sportsters came into being. In cooperation with LeBeef Metalworks, Vargön, Sweden we’re proud to offer the LeBeef Skid Plate Baja Heavy Duty for Sportsters.
It’s easy to install even by left handed wrenchers and the 3D design multiplies the strength of the 1mm sheet steel. Making your Sportster not only look as if you could take the gravel road to work if you wanted, you might actually do it.If you’re into weight reduction, this skid plate is also available in lightweight aluminium construction, by the name of Bates Skid Plate Baja.

Bates Tires Baja 90
Here’s a family of scrambler tires right on the tracks of the legendary Goodyear Grasshopper, capable of doing it all: ample grip on the road with a tread pattern that will get you out of the deepest ruts off the road.
The Bates tires Baja are the product of Bates’ long experience on diverse gravel, dirt and mud pistas, highways and Autobahns on several continents. For continuous quality control we use them on our daily riders.
We’re having these low profile section tires produced to the highest technical standards for newer Bikes. The available wheel sizes can be freely combined. Your next late model scrambler project should be awesome.
The tires are certified by German TÜV for speeds up to 190 kph, so you can legally scramblerize your 1200 Sportster or Softail that needs to be driven off or on the road.
