2016 Harley-Davidson Dyna Street Bob Review
The time-honored art of getting rid of everything that doesn’t matter…
The original bobber fanatics invented the style you see here, and they had one rule: if it weighs you down, get rid of it. That’s the Street Bob® motorcycle in spades. Solo seat. Chopped rear fender. Mini-apes putting your fists in the wind. No B.S. All it takes is a twist of the wrist to send whatever the world is trying to weigh you down with to the vanishing point behind you.
These twin-shocked bobbers are the rawest, most stripped down of all our Big Twins. Inspired by the custom garages of the ‘70s, they’ve provided the ideal canvas for untold customizers. Most of the family have the latest 1690cc V-Twin powertrain to go with the 6-Speed Cruise Drive™ transmission they all share.
Hard Candy Custom™ Paint
Hard Candy Custom™ paint is a large metal flake finish that’s more than just a paint job, it’s a shining declaration of independence—bright, bold and unique. The Dyna® Street Bob® model is available in Hard Candy Cancun Blue Flake (or, through H-D1™ Factory Customization, in Hard Candy Gold Flake or Hard Candy Black Gold Flake). Recalling the iconic rebel styling of ‘70s custom bikes, Hard Candy Custom™ paint marks another milestone in The Motor Company’s legacy of innovation. We start with several passes of 200 micron flake over a black base, then clear coat it, hand-lay the graphics, and apply the many layers of clear coat to allow the flake to shine through. It’s a painstaking process that delivers a premium custom look straight from the factory, so you can start flying your colors with no waiting or extra effort.
