Mr. Winston Je and his workshop Rough Crafts showed his new creation. Once it was Harley-Davidson Street Bob. Now the unit is called Raven Tarmac and bears little resemblance to a standard.
A few years ago the Taiwan Customizer tested the new platform with engines Milwaukee-Eight, and was delighted from the fresh line Softail. While the audience admired serial tales, Winston looked at the news and you imagine how sawed off all the excess, will change here, a little there and a little here. When a client brought him a Street Bob, he already knew what was going to happen in the end.
I had the idea to make a productive version of sitala,” says Winston. “And when he came to me the client was open to discussing the project, I knew exactly what to do”.
Project Tarmac Raven created in the trademark style of Rough Crafts is a very original and spectacular. Each view opens a new side of the cruiser. From the side the viewer can appreciate the new fuel tank and a snub tail, wonder curved exhaust tract with a silencer SC-Project and a console mounting rear wheel. But look closer – the belt drive wheel was replaced by a chain, the carbon fiber 17-inch wheels BlackStone Tek, which is 25% lighter than the original forged aluminum, shod in tires Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP V3. Type inverted fork Ohlins FGRT301 taken from the Ducati Diavel. The rear monoshock, which is an inch longer than the standard item, also has the buffet logo. Brakes? You probably already know Beringer components.
But that’s not all! Engine modified tuning kit from S&S Cycles that includes forged pistons under compression 11:1 and the camshaft with a more aggressive Cam profile. With it, the capacity increased to 124 HP at the flywheel, and torque increased from 149 Nm to 183 Nm.
