Beware Rough Crafts’ Treacherous ‘Tarmac Raven’ Harley Street Bob

Jun 10, 2019

When Harley-Davidson first announced the Street Bob-styled Milwaukee-Eight big twins, the rambunctious bikes took the industry’s lustful premonitions of modification to an entirely new level. The Softail platform, in particular, stole the hearts and minds of builders who were looking to get their hands on a pre-production model as soon as humanly possible.

Rough Crafts’ Winston Yeh was one such connoisseur — so, when he was contacted by a client who was willing to give him free rein on Harley’s incredulous V-Twin, he embraced the challenge with open arms. The shadowy ‘Tarmac Raven’ you see here comes courtesy of Yeh’s companions at CT-Garage, CNC Racing, S&S Cycle, Simon Fiber Craft, and Air Runner — a handful of admired companies who’ve fostered his love for the Softail variant. Without compromising the frame of the cycle, Winston’s team has adorned the two-wheeled machine in carbon fiber, contrasting shades of black, and dynamic performance peripherals. A custom built Öhlins suspension, CNC triple clamp, and Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP V3 tires keep the bike’s monstrous 124 horsepower M8 engine in check, while BlackStone Tek carbon fiber wheels and Beringer’s dual 4-piston calipers provide a way to tame the resultant 135 lb-ft of torque.
