Hollister AMD Qualifier Class – MOD Street
Jim Guiffra of AFT Customs took 1st place with ‘Halia.’ The construction is the handiwork of the ‘AFT Custom Girls,’ a group of female motorcycle enthusiasts and models who hone their skills at the AFT shop in Jackson, CA.
The tank of ‘Halia’ is handmade from steel and the side covers and fenders are hand formed from aluminum. The frame is modified from a stock standard structure and things like a hidden radiator, race suspension, digital switches and LED lights point to the bike’s intent. The street tracker also runs a Beringer six-piston front caliper on the disc brake, while a standard Honda drum brake resides at the rear.
1. Jim Guiffra of AFT Customs – Halia
2. West Coast Hydrographicx, 2008 R6 – Kandee
3. Joe Lozano, 2003 Indian Chief – Dreamcatcher Bike
