Harley Davidson Street Bob

Here it is : The Harley Davidson Street Bob!

Harley Davidson Street Bob

Stripped down to the bare essentials, and as “naked” as the law allows, the Street Bob model goes right to the heart of riding with no distractions along the way. Inspired by the minimalist roots of the bobber scene, the Street Bob features a mini ape-hanger handlebar, Fat Bob fuel tank, solo seat, mid-mounted foot controls and a big, black Twin Cam 103 engine.

The combination stop/tail/turn lighting and side-mounted license plate keep the chopped rear fender clean and smooth. The Street Bob can be personalized through H-D1 Factory Customization, the web-based program that allows customers to select factory-installed options that personalize fit, function and style in more than 2,000 combinations.

The original bobber fanatics invented the style you see here, and they had one rule: if it weighs you down, get rid of it. That’s the Street Bob motorcycle in spades. Solo seat. Chopped rear fender. Mini-apes putting your fists in the wind. No B.S. All it takes is a twist of the wrist to send whatever the world is trying to weigh you down with to the vanishing point behind you.

The motorcycles in the Dyna family trace their roots to the original Harley-Davidson factory customs. Notice the powerful front ends, chromed steel details and tricked-out wheels. There isn’t an ounce of doubt that you’re looking at a rolling sculpture. But there’s something bigger at work here than a mere visual statement. These are motorcycles sprung from a long riding tradition, with a strong emphasis on the riding. Post-war bobbers. Rebellious 70s choppers.

Motorcycles where the theme was riding hard and the only rule was nonconformity. The profile is long and low, built to show off plenty of muscle. The 45° V-Twin engine is the jewel at the center of the design. There is no denying the powerful message sent by such a machine. It says get in the saddle, fire up Big Twin engine, treat your ears to the most satisfying exhaust note in all of motorized transportation, then go wherever the road out of town takes you.
