Update 12 Feb 2015 – We have added a set of new images of this one-off custom built Harley Davidson Street 750. Have a look at them in the photo gallery at the bottom of this post.
19 Nov 2014 – Rock music and biking enthusiasts were in for a treat as one-off Harley-Davidson Street 750 went on display at the 2014 Harley Rock Riders – Season V which was held at the Richardson and Cruddas foundry at Byculla, Mumbai last weekend. Besides a total of 16 live bands in attendance to also include Mutemath, Scribe, Pangea, Blakc and Zero, the spot light was on Harley-Davidson Street 750 by Rajputana Customs which had a “street, custom look.”
Rajputana Custom Motorcycles is Jaipur based and renowned as one of the best custom bike builder of the country. It was started by Vijay Singh in 2010 and ever since then have been noted for their building of bikes on made to order basis and building of chopper bikes from scratch. Original Gangster was the first bike to be displayed at New Delhi Auto Expo in 2010 while Vijay Singh has also customized a Harley-Davidson Forty-Eight and Harley-Davidson Iron 883.
At Rajputana Customs, customization commences from INR 95,000 and goes all the way upto INR 8 lakhs depending on design and demands of the customer. All prices are without cost of donor bike which is provided by the customer while customization can take anywhere from two weeks to two months. To date, the company has made a total of 16 custom bikes earning a mention on the Motorcycle Customization scenario in the country.
Speaking about their custom made Harley Davidson Street 750, it features the same V twin, liquid cooled, 749 cc which does duty on the regular model. There is no change in engine configuration. The chassis too has been kept intact. In order to accommodate the fat tyres, rim size has been reduced. Another impressive part of Brat Café Racer is it is more naked than the Street. The headlight is new, instrument cluster is gone and steering design is minimal. All in all, a very classy cafe racer, too bad, Harley Davidson India is not going to sell it.
