When Harley-Davidson first announced the release of the Street 500 and 750 in 2013 — their first lightweight releases since discontinuing the Sprint nearly 40 years prior — the hog-humping elite was less than impressed. And while those sentiments are still alive and well with a certain brand of old-line Harley enthusiasts for whom everything bigger and louder is also better, custom builders have been kinder to the pared-down models.
Case in point: this reimagined 750 by Illinois mod shop Analog in collaboration with Bike Town/Whiskey Grade honcho Tom Wronkovich.
The scrambler-style kit, originally conceived to compete in Street custom contest Harley hosted to drum up sales, features spoked Continental TKC80 tires, a custom stainless steel exhuast, Cotter Pin tool and accessories, dirt bike bars and an absolutely bulletproof-cool black-and-gold paint job.
You can see the bike in the flesh at Whiskey Grade in Cleveland, and check out more photos at Bike EXIF.
