Revealed in its first phase at the Harley Rock Riders festival in Mumbai late last year, the custom Street™ 750 designed by Rajputana Customs is back with a bang. While the initial version was more an organic, old-school inspired custom version of the popular Street™ 750, motorcycle, lovers can expect to see a brand new, radically designed bike at India Bike Week on 20-21st February. This is the first-ever Harley-Davidson Street™ 750 built by an independent custom bike builder in India, and the Jaipur based custom motorcycling outfit has definitely showcased the customization capabilities of the 2015 Indian Motorcycle of the Year.
Commenting on the build, Vijay Singh of Rajputana Customs said, “Where Phase 1 of the build was all about showcasing the versatility of the Street 750 while retaining most of the stock components, Phase 2 is about taking the build a step further and really going all out with the design and making some radical changes. The new design includes a new gas tank, rear set foot pegs, a performance exhaust and a new rear cowl amongst other elements. It’s been great working on this build for Harley-Davidson, and we look forward to doing more such exciting things in the future.”
