Rough Crafts designed unique futuristic pieces for a computer hardware company to showcase their products. Rich Report explores the pieces.

There's no doubt that Rough Crafts had a lot of fun making this Harley-Davidson Street Bob look like something that would be featured in a huge sci-fi movie.

There's a very unique motorcycle, aptly named Cosmos Charger, that has a very futuristic aesthetic that is akin to the motorcycles in the movie Cyberpunk 2077, with a futuristic aerodynamic styling. In the saddle it just lacks one thing: Keanu Reeves.

Bike Exif reports that the Taiwanese shop built the bike in honor of Cooler Master's anniversary, which was celebrated in June. A company that makes computer hardware such as cases, coolers, and accessories has been in the tech business for 30 years. What could be better than celebrating this occasion in style, wouldn't you say?

Rough Crafts' Winston Yeh took the opportunity to go wild over Harley's Street Bob, one of Harley's more stripped-down models, for which he was given a lot of creative freedom. Cosmos Charger has been finished almost entirely in black with the exception of a few exposed carbon fiber pieces here and there.

The curves have been squared off to create a delightfully boxy silhouette as a result of the squared off corners. As well as being fitted with an angular cowling, the bike has also been given a new look, which all but eliminates any of the retro feel from the original. Purple lighting and cool silver Cooler Master badging break up the menacing black color scheme.

The bike was not just reshaped and painted by Rough Crafts, however. It was changed in more ways than one. Besides new Hlins forks and shocks, the company also equipped the two-wheeler with a swingarm from The Speed Merchant, Performance Machine wheels fitted with Metzeler ME888 tires, and Performance Machine wheels mounted with ThyssenKrupp mesh brakes. 

As well as that, it appears that the Milwaukee-Eight 114 engine, which is capable of producing 100 horsepower and 119 pounds of torque, was left untouched in the restoration process, despite the fact that it is capable of producing those numbers.

“For their 30th anniversary, Cooler Master asked me to build a bike and matching computer case to celebrate,” Yeh explained to Bike Exif. “I set out to combine signature elements of both worlds—the brand’s signature purple lighting, and the sharp edges and boxy shapes that are found on most Cooler Master cases. Plus, Rough Crafts’s signature fin details, with lots of forged carbon fiber.”

The Cosmos Charger is unfortunately a one-off, and at least for the time being, it will be the last of its kind. Neither Rough Crafts nor Cooler Masters have yet provided any information regarding whether or not they plan to sell the motorcycle at this time. Of course, if you wanted a bike of a similar nature, you could commission a custom shop to build one for you.
