As it has done in Europe with its "Battle of The Kings" program, Harley-Davidson is having its US dealers compete in a custom bike build-off program with its Street 750 model. Bike builds have been happening around the US, and one dealer will ultimately be crowned the Custom King.

Here's a look at the custom Street 750 built by Yellowstone Harley-Davidson, constructed under the direction of Alex Stewart, the Montana dealership's service manager. A few quick details about the board-track-inspired bike:

—It’s painted Harley orange, with pinstriping on the custom tank done by McGinley Motorsports. Inner downtubes are also custom-painted.

—Besides an LED Harley headlight, the bike has oversized wheels and tires, an extended (and drilled) swingarm, and inner fork tubes that have been milled to accommodate the wider tire.

—The Street 750 engine has been turbocharged. Stock exhaust has been repurposed and built to fit turbo for a factory look.

—Stock tail section has been re-used but altered to accommodate the taillight. Integrated side panels have been fabricated.

—Stock seat pan has been cut down and reshaped. Seat has been covered in leather.

—Bike has been converted to chain drive with a dished rear sprocket from the Shovelhead era.

The folks at Yellowstone Harley say their “Barn Find” Street 750 has been “built to impress the classic Harley-Davidson enthusiast while enjoying some new school tricks for the more modern riders.”

Have they succeeded?
