Harley-Based Bugatti Type 57SC

Take a very American iron horse, throw in some 1930 French art deco car design and you get the stunning Harley-Davidson Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic concept bike.


It’s the work of Hungarian car and bike designer Tamas Jakus whose Jakusa Design house fuses old-school and futuristic design concepts. The Jakusa Atlantico is modelled on the curvaceous 1936 Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic of which only four were built. Two remain today. One was sold a few years ago for more than $40 million and the other is in the Ralph Lauren collection. The pre-war roadsters were ahead of their time with a supercharged engine and aerodynamic bodywork. But back to the Harley Atlantico.

It’s an adventurous concept, but like the original Bugatti Type 57SC, it might be a bit ahead of its time, so we don’t think Harley is ready just yet to make such a bike.
