Cherry’s Company owner Kaichiroh Kurosu shows us his Harley-Davidson Street 750 Turbo Custom.
My name is Kaichiroh Kurosu from Cherry’s Company. We mainly produce Harley-Davidson customs.
This Street 750 project was commissioned by Harley-Davidson to promote their brand.
They gave me free reign with the theme build.
What I wanted to realize was, if Harley-Davidson created a works racer what would it look like?
The biggest challenge was how to modify the engine of such a small 750cc displacement.
I tried to resolve this by attaching a turbo. I was thinking to create this as an approach for a new Harley.
A further challenge was, as the original style of the bike was more towards an American style, I needed to create a sports bike, but without changing the dimensions of the frame.
This was to be a sports bike, yet I thought it should contain some elements of a custom bike.
So the product has end up as not a true racer, but slightly more towards an old-school custom-racer style of bike. — Kaichiroh Kurosu.
