Urban Harley Street 750 In “Bad Luck” Green

Positioned as an ideal entry to the Harley-Davidson brand with minimalist Dark Custom styling and built for the urban environment, you don’t expect a custom Street painted in “bad luck” green. For Austrian builder NCT Motorcycles, the legend of the “green” Harley being bad luck doesn’t matter. If you want to be noticed in any urban jungle, it’s the way to go…

Harley-Davidson dealer Motodrom Sintschnig commissioned NCT Motorcycles to customize this Street 750 to become one of the raffle prizes for the upcoming 20th annual European Bike Week in Faaker See, Austria (September 5-10). And of course, from pro to pro and for a bike giveaway, customization budget was very tight. It implied an immediate choice. Going for tech improvement or looks, but not both. NCT made the evident choice for a prize: to aesthetically reinforce the pure rebellion, aggressive attitude of the bike without compromising the bike main Harley features, agility and maneuverability, instant throttle response of the 750 cc Revolution X™ liquid-cooled powertrain.

Focusing only on one thing, bodywork, and not tech modifications, NCT cut and looped the frame and fabricated a new seat cowl with a “frenched” LED taillight. Front end was slighly lowered for a better angle of attack. The gas tank has been noticeably narrowed and is described by the shop as one of the most difficult tasks to make it look tight from all angles. Headlight is stock but no more fitted inside the factory speed screen.

Because the broad Harley handlebar sweep didn’t look mean enough, bars were replaced by a set of V shaped from LSL. 4 small turn signals were sourced at Kellerman and installed on the new bar ends and behind the 2 rear shocks mounts. With a much more compact body design the factory exhaust looked too long and required the mufflers to be shortened to preserve an aggressive attitude.

This custom Street 750 is going to be raffled in about 5 weeks. Will the new owner be “green superstitious”and require a new paint job or only want more mods and custom parts? At NCT Motorcycles mechanics are making bets.

    because green is the most relaxing color to the human eye…it is also the easiest color to dismiss
    when immersed in the sea of colors presented during vehicle traffic conditions…in my humble opinion
    owning and riding a green motorcycle will increase the possibility of the rider to be involved in one of
    those “I didn’t see the motorcycle”…just sayin’

    Pretty good for cosmetics only.

    That’s a look that could sell H-D some street rods.

    I am not superstitious and I like green!

  7. 7 Jeremy Jul 31st, 2017 at 9:52 am

    Good looking hipster bike.

    Green was only superstitious at the Indy 500, as I recall, but in F1, Jim Clark and Graham Hill, both winners of the 500 did pretty well with green, before Colin Chapman went to the famous black and gold with the John Player Special livery for Lotus.

    I like the green here.

    Stony,
    Didn’t both Jim Clark and Graham Hill get killed?

  10. 10 richards Jul 31st, 2017 at 4:40 pm

    Very Nice!

    John Reed should fact check…..Clark’s death car was red, Hill died in an airplane accident.

    I kinda dig this bike. It’s not perfect, tank has funny angles and the tail looks small, but it’s more positive than negative. Harley should put a 125 hp 1250cc Revolution motor in it, looks to have way better ergos than the clamshell V-Rod.

    Nice bike………………why cant Harley put an engine like the scout’s in these bike or offer one as an option?

    Another one id like to know is why you cant factory order a harley the way like and with engine colours options?

    Nice looking Korean Honda Shadow.

  15. 15 Martin Twofeather Aug 1st, 2017 at 4:12 pm

    For what it is it’s perfect…

  16. 16 Lyle Landstrom Aug 1st, 2017 at 5:42 pm

    A “Korean Honda Shadow” perhaps, but still better looking than a Eskimo Scout.

  17. 17 rcupp Aug 1st, 2017 at 7:34 pm

    Looks like a big black blob with some green dots…

  18. 18 9VOLT156 Aug 1st, 2017 at 8:34 pm

    Not bad for manufactured and engineered in INDIA.

  19. 19 Pat h Aug 2nd, 2017 at 9:49 am

    9 volt 156 get your facts straight before you make a bigger fool of yourself more fake news

  20. 20 BobS Aug 2nd, 2017 at 9:56 am

    Pat I think 9volt has the facts. The US gets Streets “assembled” in Kansas City while the rest of the world gets Streets made in India. Since it sounds like this bike is from Austria, that would mean it too has the Indian origin.

  21. 21 Pat h Aug 2nd, 2017 at 5:49 pm

    You most likely are correct on that bob s givivg him the benifit of the doubt now I am the big fool/dummy I apologize to 9volt156, just in general the India bs is getting to be a lame excuse, USA and Canada= Kansas , Italy Portugal blah blah blah, indian should think about exporting/tariff relief they don’t sell well here after a perfect weekend weather in chicago seen 3 and they were together, ugly fuckin motorcycles, the octane / scout has potential but the designers are a joke a bobber crusier chopper drag bike it looks like sombody threw the jc whinnety catalog at a motorcycle
