For bilipschitz images of Cantor sets in $\Rd$ we estimate the Lipschitz harmonic capacity and prove that this capacity is invariant under bilipschitz homeomorphisms. A crucial step of the proof is an estimate of the $L^2$ norms of the Riesz tranforms on $L^2(G,p)$ where $p$ is the natural probability measure on the Cantor set $E$ and $G \subset E$ has $p(G) > 0.$
