2007 H-D Street Glide
Some guys like going fast and some like going in style. David Hare is one of those guys who likes both, and his `07 Street Glide proves it. David is the general manger of Freedom Harley-Davidson located in the mile-high city of Denver,. "This bike is a big-horsepower bike that not only reflects my style but the style and quality of our dealership", Said David. With the blessing of his boss Ken Allen and of some of his talented team members this project was completed in less than five months.
The motivation behind this bike was performance, but not to the point where it would actually sacrifice comfort. The Accutronix grips and forward controls combine form and function with clean style. Combining the H-D chrome handlebars, levers, mirrors, and petcock creates a truly unique look with the painted inner faring. It's the chrome details by Chrome Masters that really set this custom apart. The Screamin' Eeagle tachometer and speed add style and are easy to read at a glance.
As if the 110ci twin cam with an amazing 120 horsepower and wasn't fast enough, David was just itching to get the bike back on the lift so Gary Mitchell could install the new NOS system before riding season kicked into full gear. The last time we talked with David he said, "The bike was fast before but now with the NOS it is scary fast"! The Screamin' Eagle fuel injection system with a 58mm throttle body feeds the motor with the precise air/fuel mixture. Along with the Vance & Hines Big Radius exhaust generates a very belligerent sound.
A very custom look is achieved with the addition of the RC Components wheels and rotors with the lower Progressive Suspension. They give this bike a very aggressive stance without compromising the ride quality. The 21-inch Metzler tire is covered by an H-D Gunslinger front fender followed by an FBI 200mm fat tire kit. The Fat Baggers taillight and license plate mount contours to the fat rear fender.
The Screamin' Eagle themed paint gives a superior balance to the stretched Gunslinger tank nested seamlessly to custom seat created by Bitchn Stitchn. The stunning paint and graphics created by Gunslinger Paint continues to flow effortlessly the full length of the bike. The assembly and fabrications were done in collaboration with Gunslinger Paint and the Freedom Harley-Davison crew.
