The front fender from Sinister was left alone, as the team liked how it looked right out of the box. Both the inner and outer fairings were left alone but the Sinister windshield was molded to cover up the indents on the top.
Once fabrication was complete and all body work done it was time to come up with a paint and graphics scheme. Initially Roger wanted to go with Lamborghini Green but then decided it might be too loud. Then white marbleized was thrown around, but that was too bland. Roger’s BMW was painted Phoenix Yellow and he was going to then go with that. While blocking out the bike for paint Roger saw a Lambo dressed in orange pearl with black and carbon fiber (CF) accents. That was THE look.
The paint was laid down in three stages, with a white basecoat, then orange pearl, followed by clearcoat. The carbon fiber pieces are actually painted on. The CF look was applied to the cutouts in the inner fairing as well as the 39-inch Sinister handlebars and dash. The paint used for the CF look appears black or like real CF depending on how the light strikes it. All of the CF was lined with chrome-based silver to separate it from the orange.
For the artwork, again Roger didn’t want to go the traditional flame or fire look. He had the airbrush artist make a drawing of a skull with a crown lined with jewels that change color at different angles. The skull and wing motif was carried through different parts of the bike. A Mohawk was thrown in for more originality.
On the audio side of things a Clarion head unit was installed into the fairing. The tweeters from a Hog Tunes speaker pod were removed and replaced with MB Quart tweeters. Loud Lid speaker adapters hold two, 6½-inch midrange speakers, and the rear speakers are 6½-inch Loud Lid carbon fiber units. A Bagger Concepts amplifier was used to boost the output.
A custom seat was needed to fit the gas tank so Roger and KK made a fiberglass seatpan. The pan along with the bike was sent to New England Trim for final fitment and assembly. To go along with the orange theme they used tangerine and white stingray hide from Thailand. The seat looks at home on the bike and the stingray shines in the sun.
The bike is a rider and Roger was blown away at how the final project turned out. KK and Roger have begun making custom bagger parts from what they learned on the build. Roger wanted to thank Matt from KK for the unbelievable paint and devotion to the project; Domingo for the bodywork; and Pete for the airbrushing. Rayco Auburn helped out on the project by sponsoring the stereo install. Charlie Cook from Red Streak motors for helping with parts and advice. Roger’s friend Steven helped with the difficult task of internally wiring the handlebars and the suspension while lastly Roger wants to thank his girlfriend Lori for dealing with him through the build.
This was truly a team effort like almost all builds. In this case though the owner had an integral part in transforming a stock Street Glide into a one-off showstopper. B
