You don’t often see the words Harley-Davidson and ‘streetfighter’ in the same sentence. But if anyone can make a happy marriage of these uneasy bedfellows, it’s Winston Yeh of Rough Crafts. And he’s done it in spectacular style with his new build ‘Hooligan Tactics’—complete with pixelated paintjob.

Most custom bikes are easy to label: scrambler, café racer, streetfighter and so on. Others are impossible to categorize, but immediately grab the eye. This is one of the tricky ones. It’s not traditional Bike EXIF fare, but we love it. It’s a Harley-Davidson Sportster custom from the German workshop Altes Eisen—which means ‘Old Iron.’

In Europe, Harley-Davidson is boosting interest in the Street 750 with its Battle of The Kings competition, pitching dealers against each other in a custom bike build-off. This is one of our favorites—built by Austrians Fabian Weber and Gregor Malleier of H-D Innsbruck.

The Busch and Busch Harley Davidson XLCH is a purpose-built land speed racer. The bodywork required epic design, fabricating and finishing hours—and what they have planned for its engine will turn it into one helluva mean machine.

What’s the best-looking Harley-Davidson of all time? We’d put our money on the XRTT road racer from the 1970s, and it looks like Belgian mechanic Joeri Van Ouytsel feels the same.

The 2014 Bike EXIF custom motorcycle awards are out, and here's one of the Top 10: ‘Urban Cavalry’ by Rough Crafts. There’s a sinister, sci-fi look to this Harley-Davidson Dyna. It's based on a 2014-spec Dyna Street Bob, but it’s running Kawasaki sportbike forks and a custom alu swing arm. Power gets a boost from S&S ‘Super G’ carburetion and a titanium exhaust worthy of a Formula 1 car. Click through to see the other award winners.
