Your Speed and Style bike build consists of:
A purpose-built, fully functional, race-inspired flat-track Harley-Davidson

What engine is powering your creation?
The engine is a 2015 water-cooled Harley-Davidson XG750.

Other outstanding attributes and modifications of your build?
We constructed a full 4130 chrome-moly frame and integrated an adjustable eccentric in the swingarm pivot for dialing in the perfect suspension setup. Using Öhlins front and rear suspension, fully adjustable to get the bike set up on a short or long track to rider weight is ideal for performance. Saving weight was another factor we wanted to keep in mind and have a full carbon-fiber gas tank, carbon tailsection, carbon adjustable levers, carbon handlebars, and full carbon BST wheels with Dunlop DT3 tires. Working on this new Harley-Davidson platform has been a lot of fun, it's a new challenge, and we can't wait to get this bike on the track. Shortly after this bike is completed we will have another version of this bike started for my brother to race.
