Battle of the Kings » H-D Street 750
Harley-Davidson dealerships are equipped with in-house Custom Kings, but what happens when you pitch some of the best customisation shops against each other? Well, a lot of them competed for the ultimate bragging rights at the recently concluded Wheels and Waves Festival, where every dealer was handed a Street 750 to turn into a one-off masterpiece.
Public voting at Europe’s top custom festival had already selected the five finalists, built by Harley dealers working against strict limits on expenditure and time. Helping pick the ultimate winner were famous names in the industry, including Bike EXIF’s Chris Hunter, H-D Chief Stylist Ray Drea, Moto Heroes editor Fabrice Roux, Craftrad editor Hermann Köpf and Jérôme Allé of Southsiders MC.
Top Honours went to Ondrej Odehnal from Harley-Davidson Prague for this beautiful custom Street 750 featuring hand-beaten metal and near-perfect proportions. The classic café racer style was inspired by the Lotus C-01 and Shaw Speed & Custom’s ‘Nascafe Racer’. The motorcycle receives a new rear frame, Vance & Hines Fuelpak FP3 fuel management system, custom exhaust, rearsets, new lighting front and back, bobbed fender and even a mobile phone interface replacing the traditional instruments.
