Harley-Davidson Street Bob

The Harley-Davidson Street Bob is the MoCo’s Big Twin-powered, factory-custom bobber meant to rope in riders who thumb their nose at the status quo. Bobbed fenders and high-rise Mini-Ape bars set the stage up front with a homegrown-custom vibe backed up by the blacked-out and drilled-out exhaust heat shields, fork bellows, and rims. A solo seat comes stock along with mid-mount foot controls to round out the package. Earlier Street Bob models were built around the Dyna platform while later ones ride as a Softail.

Harley-Davidson ditched the Milwaukee-Eight 107 and repowered its Street Bob platform ahead of MY2021 with the powerful Mil-8 114 to give it a performance boost over its predecessor. This made it the least expensive stoplight burner in the 2021 lineup, as well as the lightest Big-Twin to carry the up-sized Milwaukee engine. The homejob-custom look is a carryover from last year but the graphics package is unique to this year-model setting it apart from its peers.

Bonkers Build Of The Day: Harley-Davidson Street Bob Converted To A Track-Ready Motorcycle!

Bonkers Build Of The Day: Harley-Davidson Street Bob Converted To A Track-Ready Motorcycle!

And it’s rightly dubbed ’Tarmac Raven’ as you’re about to find out why

Harley-Davidson is a name long associated with low-slung cruiser motorcycles, built to cover hundreds of miles at once.

But when a customer walked in with one such Harley-Davidson Street Bob, custom bikemaker Rough Crafts did something crazy (we’re talking Mad Max crazy) and ended up converting the laidback cruiser to a..wait for it..track-ready, carbon fiber-laden bike.

2018 - 2020 Harley-Davidson Street Bob

2018 - 2020 Harley-Davidson Street Bob

Risen from the ashes of the Dynas, the Street Bob was rebuilt and reintroduced as a Softail

The Harley-Davidson lineup underwent some serious changes in MY2018, and the chopped-down, Dyna-based Street Bob was rebuilt and reintroduced as a Softail model. Not only did it switch to Harley’s faux-rigid style frame, but the frame itself was completely reinvented to the point where it bears little resemblance to the original that saw the light of day for the first time back in ’84. Sure, it still has that classic Softail visage, but the factory achieved it in a totally different way this time, and any perceived similarities are only skin deep. To add to the revamp, the Street Bob was on the receiving end of a beating-heart transplant with the addition of the then-new-to-cruisers, Milwaukee-Eight 107 powerplant that brings over 100 pounds of grunt to the table. The Street Bob has more power, new frame, and a new family/model combination as it rolls through to 2020.

Top 5 new Bobbers coming in 2020

Top 5 new Bobbers coming in 2020

Stripping excess bodywork from a motorcycle, shortening the fenders and having a bob-tail

Minimalism and understatement do not always go hand in hand. In this case, it is the whole point of the design. Bringing the designs from their history books and fusing them with cues of early performance models, manufacturers catered to the ’bob-job’ from the 1930s through the 1990s custom scene.

Stripping excess bodywork from a motorcycle, shortening the fenders, and having a bob-tail, here is our list of the top five Bobbers coming in 2020. They run on massive engines yet harks back to a different time – ostensibly the post-WWII era when returning servicemen stripped their bikes of all unnecessary weight for the sake of going faster.

2016 - 2017 Harley-Davidson Street Bob

2016 - 2017 Harley-Davidson Street Bob

Introduced in 2006, the Dyna Street Bob (FXDB) was the first "Dark Custom" designed for Harley-Davidson’s Dyna family. The Street Bob originally came with an 88.5 cubic-inch (1,450 cc) engine and graduated to 96.7 cubes (1,584 cc) in 2007. After the release of the Twin Cam 103 in the 2012, Harley dropped it into the Street Bob starting in 2014.

In the modern bobber style, the 2017 Street Bob is minimal: solo seat, no windshield, cut-down fenders, mid-mount controls and retro-style air cleaner cover. Minimal doesn’t mean lack of comfort, though. The Street Bob is very comfortable — comfortable enough for all-day riding. With bags and a windshield, it would make a nice casual tourer — better than a Softail would.

Minimal also doesn’t mean lack of quality. The Street Bob holds to the same standard of quality that Harley is known for and pledges that to you in a cast 3-D fuel tank medallion, not some econo graphic sticker.

More on the Harley-Davidson Street Bob

The popularity of the Evo-powered Dyna-version of the Street Bob would lead it to crossover to the new Softail frame circa 2018 for a new lease on life. It’s worth pointing out that less than a handful of the old Dyna models made that leap, and that speaks volumes to the potential the factory still sees in the Street Bob.

The first three year-models of the new Softail era would carry the Milwaukee-Eight 107 engine. But the MoCo gave it a boost with its 114 cubic-inch M8 ahead of 2021 to add an element of improved performance to its old-school custom machine. It’s a fitting move considering that many of the details that make this model what it is are borne of homegrown performance tweaks such as the drilled-out exhaust shields and front fender struts.
