Dirt Rod

Leeds Harley-Davidson

Model :STREET ROD Category :DIRT

For our BOTK 2019 entry we chose the Street Rod. Ever since it was released, we have been talking about its potential as a bike that can be used off road; it’s been begging for some MX type bars and a high flowing 2-1 exhaust system, alongside some off-road inspired tyres for when the road meets the dirt. Inspiration also came from my MX-riding days and helped influence me to aim the Street Rod towards dirt and make the ultimate Scrambler. 

 

There haven’t been major changes to the chassis and component areas, just little changes, for example, panel work, tyres, headlights. It’s got an old Fat Bob® headlight with a Trike main and dipped beam LED set up, not forgetting the change in colour and different exhaust, which warranted a Stage 1 tune.

 

In my view the stand-out area is the front end, going from a standard Street Rod to what it looks like now with the relocation of the indicators, headlights, front end and the rear hugger from a 2018 Fat Bob.

THE CUSTOM KING

Declan Foster (20) – Apprentice Technician. Bikes got into my life when I was at a young age. I started off riding motocross, then as soon as I was old enough to ride, I was out and about on road bikes. I was involved in an RTA two years ago, which was of no fault of mine, but unfortunately serious injury stopped me riding for nearly a year. This only motivated me more to get back on two-wheels and continue to ride 365 days a year. 

 

I’ve always had a taste for different and working here at Leeds Harley-Davidson for three years I see many customised Harleys. Here in the UK, it’s common opinion that you just don’t need 120bhp or more on the road, it’s just not useable with traffic and sheep already crowding our flowing tarmac. This is what makes the Street Rod the perfect donor to create a bike that can be fully utilised on the streets without being stuck in first gear everywhere.
