Cus­tom po­ten­tial

Motorcycle Monthly - - Harley-Davidson Launch -

The bike was launched in Europe in late 2014 for the 2015 model year; when Har­ley-David­son cre­ated its ‘Bat­tle of the Kings’ dealer cus­tom build com­pe­ti­tion, while the UK saw shops work on the Forty-Eight, other coun­tries based their projects on the Street 750. With a bud­get of €4000 for parts (at least 75% of which must be of­fi­cial H-D), and a max­i­mum of 50 hours labour, the com­pe­ti­tion proved that to­tally unique ma­chines are within the reach of many buy­ers. My favourite was the Scram­bler shown here – it was billed to its buyer for about €20,000, but as many riders would no doubt want to do some of the work them­selves, the fact that around half that cost is in labour makes for an ex­cit­ing prospect.
