The bagger bug bit Denver's Martin Martinez when his father bought a '07 Street Glide. Wanting to go ride with his dad, Martin bought an identical bike. Spending the extra time riding with his dad was fun but Martin wanted his bagger to stick out from the rest of the crowd. Martin got his inspiration to build a full on custom from his brother-in-law and good friend Mike DeHerrera who both have custom baggers. "I wanted to go all the way with this build," said Martin. With the help of his friends and Gottcha Kolor the bike was completed in less than five months.
Starting with Diamond Cut cylinders and heads, Roland Sands air cleaner, and the Rinehart True Duals the bike creates a nice rumble. The Street Glide rolls on matching Renegade wheels and rotors, with a 21-inch up front and an 18 on the back. Both are surrounded by Metzeler donuts.
The stock front fender was modified while a Ness rear fender, bag fillers, and saddlebags were added. The Diamond Pro LED taillight and turn signals along with a frenched-in license mount make the bagger a legal beagle. Stealth grips and floorboards along with the 2-inch under White Brothers Suspension keeps the rider comfortable while the remote control air ride slams the green machine to the ground.
The Alpine 600 watt amp, JBL speakers (two 6x9, two 6-inch mid subs, and two 5 mid speakers), and Kenwood DVD player just might bring Martin some unwanted attention from you know who. Going all out with this build meant as much chrome as possible. They don't call `em Chromeaholics for nothing.
If the chrome doesn't blind you, the lime gold/green base paint applied by Mike DeHerrera might overload for your retinas. Randy Gustafson created the graphics giving the bike motion, while Gottcha Kolor did the molding. The lime green theme was carried over into the custom alligator seat and passenger pad fashioned by Bitchn Stitchn based out of Lakewood, Colorado completing the all out custom that Martin had dreamed of.
