Fun is a relative term. For some, it means strolling in the park, while for others it might be, wanting to rumble through the streets on their motorcycles. Even the latter can be broken down into many categories, but mainly people who like on-road fun and off-road fun.
Ensuring both types have equal amounts of fun, MB Cycles a custom bikemaker based out of Germany has prepped up not one but two Harley-Davidson Dyna Low Riders, converting one into a street tracker and the other into a street racer.
Custom Harley-Davidson Low Rider S By MB Cycles
These two custom bikes are dubbed “Cross” and “Racer” by the bikemakers and both are based on the 2016 Dyna Low Rider S, the last Dyna to go into production. The Low Rider S Cross is the off-road specialist between the two and was built for an ex-professional dirt bike racer. Meanwhile, the Low Rider S Racer is tarmac-friendly and was built for a different customer who wanted “a cool racer”.
The timeline of the builds was almost the same, and there’s a lot in common between the two. First, both bikes feature a totally different front end, sourced from Rebuffini. On the Cross, you find USD forks with a steering damper while the Racer gets sportier Öhlins USD forks. Topping this is dual Öhlins rear shocks, finished in gold and black, respectively.
Next, the folks at MB Cycles threw in extended swingarms (still coupled with the stock wheels) and converted the final drive to chain from the belt. Similarly, the stock braking setup has been disposed to make way for Galfer petal discs (two up front, one outback) and Rebuffini calipers (red for the Racer, golden for the Cross). Lastly, the engine changes on both comprise a two-into-one MCJ exhaust and an aftermarket cam to bump performance.
Lasering into the more specific bits, the Cross boasts a custom subframe housing a flat seat and a chopped rear fender equipped with puny LED indicators. Accompanying this is a custom front fender as well as a blacked-out flyscreen.
As for the Racer, it flaunts a sportier tail section resembling street tracker bikes topped by LED lighting along with a custom fairing and a carbon fiber fender up top. Also part of the fascia is an all-LED headlight replacing the stock unit. Final touches on both bikes include a custom handlebar, grips, levers, and mesh covers for the fuel caps.
Can You Buy It?
Not exactly. However, what you can do, is hit up the bikemaker and get your custom Harley cater-made to your liking. Both these bikes were built for respective clients and they must be pretty satisfied with how these custom builds have turned out.
