A Harley-Davidson Street 750 Wanted To Be A Dirt Tracker

1kr7502kr7503kr750The Street 750 was introduced by Harley-Davidson with the objective to attract a new segment of urban riders. Its “Dark Custom” aesthetics, speed screen, black front fork gaiters, all-black exhaust system and aggressive slash on the tail section predispose the bike to a Cafe Racer makeover.

Surprisingly, Jimmy Goode from Kustom Kommune in Australia went another direction, turning the Street 750 into a Dirt Tracker paying tribute to the old XR750. And to succeed, except for the factory frame and Revolution X™ engine, he didn’t hesitate to toss all factory parts! To move from Street to Dirt, main mods include: a new swingarm with Burley shocks, a new custom tank crafted in Japan by VM Production, a modified tail section borrowed from another tracker, a new inverted front end to which are now attached new 9-spoke cast wheels with a pair of discs and radial-mount brake calipers. Paint by KDS Designs. A dirt tracker for the youngsters.

    Another one for youngsters. Need more like that to make them embrace the H-D brand

    Definitely for youngsters that don’t remember the KR models that came before the XR’s…

    Reminds me of a verse out of Ecclesiastes There is nothing new under the sun. Nice work

    Absolutely Way Cool….
    A Street Tracker in the making.
    Certainly a “tool” to get youngsters to really learn to ride.

    Who knows, this could be the start of a new fad that would get Motorcycling back to its roots.
    (no more yammering for “stability technology” to cover up helpless incompetence)
    A more capable riding public and lower insurance rates.

    Nice layout/idea in general. In concept something for HD to consider – the std XG must surely be the ugliest motorcycle on sale today.

    In practice (granted it is intended as a show-piece): the entire rear-end looks rather flimsy for any serious dirt tracking.

    I always liked the XR750’s…Looks like the Aussies did too. Nice job Jimmy!

    There has never been a worthwhile custom that the MOCO didn’t later use as a blue print for a “factory custom”. Look for the street XRTT.
