Ernie Baptiste from the sandy California coast of Santa Barbara emailed us these pics of his ’09 Street Glide. Ernie informed us that his bike is no slouch. He beefed up the engine with Dave Mackie heads, pistons, and cams, and used Revolution Performance’s EMS tuning module to dial it all in. In the looks department he installed a set of Yaffe Monkey Bagger Bars, front axle, shift linkage, and mirrors, as well as a Le Pera seat. Audio-wise he swapped out the stock head unit for an Alpine system and dropped the stock exhaust in favor of a set of Rinehart Xtreme True Duals. He streamlined the bodywork with a Russ Wernimont front fender and dash up front and a set of Milwaukee Baggers stretched saddlebags and rear fender out back. To offset all the black paint Ernie loaded up his Glide with a sea of chrome from Performance Machine including the wheels, air cleaner, and floorboards.
THE WOODY BAGGER
Anthony Maye from Fabrication Time Studios in Northern California wanted us to check out this Road King they just painted to look like an old Woody. The combination of the spoked wheels, distressed brown leather seat, and sissybar, along with the custom airbrush work really give this bike a unique look. We’re sure the owner, Larry, who is an MP in the Air Force and stationed at Beale Air Force base, loves cruising his Woody in the surrounding foothills.
EL GUAPO’S INFAMOUS RIDE
Michael “Guapo” Cardenaz, says he bought his 2011 Street Glide brand new with only 12 miles on the odometer. He trailered the bike home and immediately tore it part so he could chop and rake the neck for a 26-inch front wheel. A wrap-around front fender was mounted between a set of Arlen Ness Deep Cut fork legs. He installed a stretched tank with matching dash, chin spoiler with mesh grille insert between the downtubes, stretched saddlebags with speaker lids, and Battistini Semi Circle rider and passenger boards. The makeover was capped off with a gloss black paintjob with ghoulish airbrush work from tip to tail. As the president of the Chattahoochee chapter of the Iron Warriors Motorcycle Club, a club comprised of current and retired law enforcement officers and firefighters, Guapo says this isn’t a show bike, but a daily rider that now has more than 4,000 miles on the dial.
Anthony Viscomi from New Jersey isn’t shy about his obsession for power when it comes to his motorcycles. As soon as he got ahold of this 2012 Street Glide he pulled the stock engine and replaced it with Harley’s SE120R crate motor. Capable of making more than 130 horsepower and torque right out of the box, Anthony still wanted more power so he hooked up a Pro Charger supercharger to the engine. The addition of a custom front fender, chrome wheels, a Corbin solo seat, and some chrome goodies tells us Anthony likes his bike to look good as well as run good. Anthony didn’t provide any dyno numbers with the SE120R/Pro Charger combo but we’re assuming that’s because he’s having way too much fun ripping up the streets with the monster motor package to be bothered with sitting stationary on a dyno.
