Greet the Street

Old Bike Australasia - - BUZZ BOX -

The all-new Street, part of Har­ley-David­son’s new Dark Cus­tom range, is the first all-new plat­form from the iconic US man­u­fac­turer in 14 years. On Novem­ber 1st and 2nd, over 4,000 vis­i­tors to Oil Stained Brain in Colling­wood, Mel­bourne – which cel­e­brates Aus­tralia’s best cus­tom motorcycle builds – had a sneak pre­view of a spe­cial one-off ver­sion cre­ated by the event host, Kus­tom Kom­mune. Di­rec­tor of Mar­ket­ing for Har­ley-David­son Aus­tralia and New Zealand, Adam Wright said: “We wanted to give fans and like-minded rid­ers a pre­view of what Aus­tralia can ex­pect from this ex­cit­ing new model; we pro­vided Kus­tom Kom­mune with a blank can­vas and asked the team to let their imag­i­na­tion run wild. The re­sult spec­tac­u­larly demon­strates what an ex­cit­ing plat­form the Street will of­fer when it of­fi­cially roars into Aus­tralia and New Zealand. The spe­cial Street fea­tures a hand­made al­loy tank with art­work by BDS De­signs, a cus­tom swing arm with twin can­tilever style sus­pen­sion, and a mod­i­fied frame. It has 19-inch wheels front and rear, a spe­cial front end with twin discs and “drag style” han­dle­bars. The of­fi­cial re­lease for the Street range has yet to be fixed.
