Blacked-Out Street Glide

I'm one of the writers for a Blog covering the dealership I work at. I like to give different pictures and examples of some of the nice ways people are customizing their Harleys. Here is a Black Denim Street Glide that I thought was quite filthy.

He got a Black Denim FLHX and decided to go ahead and black that thing out! The forks, all the trim around the lights, the turn signals, the hand controls, the brake/clutch levers, the saddle bag latches and guards, the pipe, all the covers on the engine, the bars, the wheels, etc, etc. The list goes on.

The wheels are Harley-Davidson’s 18 inch (front and back) Agitators. Of course you have to have the brake rotors to match the wheels too. The FLHX gets air through the H-D heavy breather intake (which of course is black.) Then the air is spit out through the Vance and Hines Pro-Pipe (also black), all controlled by the Screamin’ Eagle Super Tuner. The bars are Paul Yaffe’s 12 inch Monkey bars (need I say they are black denim as well.)

As a nice little accent, some of the emblems around the bike have been hand painted red. You’ll see this nice accent on the tank emblem, passenger floor boards, and multiple covers on the motor.

Now what is a bagger without the tunes? This rollin’ black hole is equipped with Harley’s Boom Audio and Hog Tunes extra speaker pods. The stereo sounds great might I add.  To keep things techie - the iPod interface and mounting hardware is used to keep Apple in our lives.

The finished product is a wicked lookin’ bagger with red accents throughout. The Black Denim gives it the greaser, bobber look with all the modern comforts of a touring model.
