I see some of the concept bikes have inverted forks, will HD offer that for the street? I'm hoping for some forward foot pegs like on the Sportster for a relaxing position for taller folks. I sat on a Streetglide with stock floor boards and found the 883 with forward controls more comfortable, I'm 6'1".

Forward foot pegs would be nice as I too am 6'1". Never had to install forward foot pegs though. Do you just buy them and screw them in? Is there something you need to look for to make sure they are compatible?

Knowing this mission with this bike it seems very possible this will happen. As we get closer to them hitting the road we should see more about this.

The male slider fork I saw on the cafe racer concept bike appeared to be the production unit from a current year Night Rod Special or V-Rod Muscle. That gives me hope I can finagle a something like that on a Street 750.

I would really like the front end, wheels and rear pulley from an XR-1200X and a bit more rear set pegs, perhaps from Rizoma. Drag bars and a tach and that would be good for what I want to do with the bike.

Anyone know how many teeth the pulleys have on either Street model?

Correction. After some study I realized that the V-Rod fork and triple clamps are on the lowered concept bike. The cafe racer concept has legs from an XR-1200X with the brake bracket cut off the right leg lower casting. The fender looks like a stock XR-1200/V-Rod part and the bracket looks like a shortened XR-1200X fender bracket.

The triple clamps, however, are neither V-Rod nor XR-1200/XR-1200X parts but something unique, which makes me wonder if these are prototype parts for an eventual version of the Street with a male slider fork. Well, one can hope!

Go ahead and google up some photos of that bike, a late model Night Rod Special and the XR-1200, save them to your computer and blow them up real big. You can see that the triple clamps on that concept bike are not like anything on any other Harley product.

don't know too much about suspension for motorcycles. but i fully expect there to be options for the street being such a cheap motorcycle.
