Hello from Texas

Have a 2015 Street glide special that I bought about three years ago. I fell in love with the batwing faring but the shark nose has really grown on me. So much so that I'm researching on how to convert the street glide to the Road glide special. Glad to be here and I'm sure plenty of guides to help with the conversion! Thanks guys

Welcome to the site !

I have never looked into conversions from BW to SN. But, my first impression is to sell/buy, rather than wrench it. Just don't think there are many used SN available. Nor, re-sale of BW.


Go to it, prove me wrong !


However, please keep us updated on your progress. Good Luck !!

Welcome from Utah. Conversions can be done there are existing forum threads about it. I think most are Road King conversions.

Thanks fellas. Gonna be a long project since I'm in no hurry right now. Saw a youtuber do it already on a 2015 I think. Biggest thing is doing the right research and creating a list for all parts needed.

Welcome from SW Florida (God's Waiting Room). I think we've had someone on here who's adapted a RG fairing to half of HD's models at one time or another. Start with a search and then request additional help on any aspect of the swap and I'm sure multiple folks here will help with the details. Good luck!
