Redbeard719's CVO Street Glide to CVO Road Glide Custom Conversion

Update: Oct 27, 2012 - Conversion begins. Pictures are include in posts below.

Well Gang....this project is starting to come together nicely.

First shipment came last week from New Castle HD. Included many of the brackets and mounts, the nacelle sides, and a few other small things. The outer fairing is still on order, and I hope to have it soon.

Today, all but the right directional mount showed up from Lake Shore, and it will be here tomorrow. All the hardware is here, the inner fairing, CVO windshield kit (Windsplitter, I believe), and all the other small pieces.

I have one big trip planned for this weekend on the CVO Street Glide. After I get back, I hope to have the last few pieces. I've got a small project going on wth my 2003 Heritage Springer, which I hope to wrap up soon (waiting for custom-made parts), and after it's ridable, the Street Glide will be taken apart, and the outer fairing will be taken along with all the raw pieces to Gunslingers Custom Paint (they paint many of the CVO bikes for Harley, including the 2012 and 2013 CVO RGC). They shot my Street Glide inner last winter, and it was perfect.

I've got a few good buddies that will be buying some take offs from me to help ease the pain and expenses, but I will be doing their install work as well...

Bars are in the garage and not included with the boxes below...I went with 17" Carlini Evil Apes, chrome. Tomorrow I expect the J&M Rokker XT's to show up. Found them online for over 30% off MSRP.

It's going to be a while before I have some serious updates, but I'm too excited about all this to keep it to myself!

Until next time...

I hope you live in a part of the country where riding season is almost over, looks like you may be down for awhile. Good luck, looking foward to seeing your paint job.

Yup...I'm in Colorado. The bulk of the season is behind us. Once my springer is up again, I'll have something else to keep my knees in the wind on those warmer days. Long distance touring is almost over...I'll probably tear it down in late October.

That's a great question. I checked out the map, and from my location, it's about 685 miles. Easily doable in a day.

I asked my better half is she wanted to go to Shark Week III....she thought I meant for real sharks. Once the laughter subsided, I never really got a straight answer. Hopefully we'll be there. Lost of questionables right now as far as jobs and family commitments, but I really want to make it.

The remainder of the big parts showed up yesterday. Last big item was the outer fairing. Also got a shipment in from Lake Shore with a few forgotten items, like the speaker grills. Since I'm selling my old bars to a friend already wired (Yaffe Monkey Bagger Bars) and getting his controls in return, I needed to get chrome housings and buttons, and the CVO throttle assembly. All that remains is to tear it down and get things in to paint...

Are you going to have Gunslingers match the CVO paint? This is something I've always thought would be cool, was taking a CVO streetglide and converting it with matching paint and all. Something to make the streetglide guys go,.. "What the!! They never offered that bike!"






For a wounded man shall say to his assailant,
'If I live, I will kill you. If I die, You are forgiven.'
Such is the rule of honor.
