New Street... Errr... Electra Glide Ultra Street thingy.

I'm sure a lot of you have seen my post about me having to sell my custom because of some medical issues. I haven't sold it yet but I had a guy offer to trade me this beauty for my 98 Cobra. I think I made out very well on the deal.

It's a 1998 Electra Glide that has been customized and converted to a Street Glide. 80" evo, Mikuni carb, 14 inch apes, SG rear fender, SG front fairing and powder-coated front end, 21 inch DNA rim up front wrapped in Metzler rubber, SG seat and quick detach backrest. Custom pin-striping on the bags and fairing. I'll take some more pics of it when the weather clears up.


UPDATED WITH MORE PICTURES...

More Pictures!!!

Last night I lowered it down a little, flipped the mirrors over so they hang under the bars now. Took off the passenger backrest and took off the lid covers to show off that sexy pin-striping on the bags. Just gotta decide on exhaust. Took off the fender skirt on the front fender, tightened up a few little things and then gave it an epic wax. That's what I have so far. Just need new exhaust now.

True-duals & V&H ovals !.....

It's just me though....never liked the look of a Bagger from the rear with only one pipe... Kinda looks like the "other" pipe fell off...

NICE, Roho!!! That's super kick a$$!!

I would go with the fishtails, although the big ovals will sound better. I have the longtail fishtails (Samson) on my 80" Evo and, while they sound great, I can assure you the bigger pipes will yield a deeper, more throaty sound. Sound over looks, looks over sound... Sucks to be faced with such a horrific decision-making process.

Does anyone ever ride bitch? I'm a believer that a seat can make or break a bike's overall look. If you don't ride with anyone on board, the only thing I'd change would be a solo saddle or a two-up with a lower-profile rear end. It'll definitely give it a more low-down, sleek, sinister profile.

That was the only thing I saw that I'd change, even over the pipe. For some unkonwn reason, I've always liked that particular version of the 2-1 pipe as it looks like the business end of a tank cannon (but of course, I'm an even bigger fan of true duals).

Thats just a killer looking bike. You always have great taste!
