Berg just quietly turns out a bewildering series of non-denominational customs from his small, one-man workshop in Palm Springs, California. In essence, he is Cobra USA’s Special Project Division, working with company co-founder Ken Boyko to come up with showbikes that will draw attention to Cobra’s line of exhaust pipes, EFI modules and chrome/billet accessories.

Latest is “Project Genesis.” It takes a blueprinted and polished 2006 Harley-Davidson Twin Cam 88 motor and wraps it in a tiny, minimalist Frame: that Berg fabbed himself starting with a Paughco neck. It’s a perimeter-style design, most of it 7/8ths-inch tubing, with a single 1.75-inch downtube and 40-degree rake. No fat tires need apply. The look is straight from the Seventies, the bike’s one-piece fiberglass bodywork covered in candy-brandywine paint and highlighted with a variegated gold-leaf pattern and pinstripes. That would be the handiwork of BuckWild Designs, and is pulled off so well that Arlen Ness, the Godfather of All Things Custom—and one of the few who remembers the 1970s—gave it a big thumbs-up when the bike was unveiled at the big Cincinnati V-Twin Expo this past February.
