2006 Road Glide Build

Well, after hemming and hawing for almost a year.......all the while collecting parts....I decided I needed to keep my 2006 RG and give up the thought of getting something newer.

I'd been hoping to score a good deal on a 103" and even went as far as to put my 06 with 13,000 miles that I bought in 2013 up for sale.....but the best offer I was getting was about $8500 and I wanted more....so I had to make the decision to keep it and go ahead and upgrade it instead of spending the money on something newer and upgrading that to a lessor degree. I'm ok with the decision as I like custom and I like to mod. So here we go....

As it looked when I bought it........












Well the first thing I did was to pick up a tourpack from Mutazu based on the positive comments on this forum. And install a quick detach setup and Kuryakyn adjustable base. I REALLY like the adjustable base as there was NO way my girlfriend was gonna fit behind me without it.







As you can see I also threw on a short windscreen.....looked good but wow, the buffeting was crazy...

So I picked up a Klockwerks 12" and while that was better.....It still needed improvement.



More to come...

Thanks!

Since I wasn't sure if I was gonna get a newer Road Glide or stick with my 06 for almost a year.....I'd started accruing parts in anticipation. So sitting in my garage I had....

Progressive Suspension Mono tubes -1"

Progressive Suspension 970 13" Shocks (with the remote reservoirs )

Progressive Suspension Tour Link

16" Factory 47 Malos

LA Choppers Black SS extended clutch, brake and throttle cables

Billet ignition cover

Aluminum Covers for the gauge bezels

Kuryakyn Rear Bullet blinkers and license plate holder

Alloy Art front LED blinkers

Figure Machine 5" Air Cleaner

And a passenger back rest which I found out means I needed the OTHER quick disconnect set up....sigh.



I had assumed I'd go with a fat spoke 21" Front wheel and a front fender that hugged the tire more.....but I was getting pretty turned off by the price. I wanted ALL black on the barrel, spokes and nubs and was getting some pretty high quotes to build it...$700+...too much for me right now.....and with fenders running 2-3 hundred bucks PLUS paint....it was just too much...I'd found the HD Street Stalker front fender and thought it looked really good.....but it didn'tt work with a 21". Then I found it....

A brand new chrome RideWright 60 spoke 18" Wheel on eBay for about $300 shipped.







And with that....my decision about the HD Street Sweeper became much easier.


A trip to the powder coater and it was nice and black just like I wanted!







And since I was going to the powder coater.....I took every chrome bit and piece in as well.






Dropped off my bike at a local shop (Bob Taylor Motors in Huntington Beach) and had him install the 16" Malos and the newly blacked out forks, cans and Monotubes and mount the new Pirelli Night Dragons and Progressive 970's. And while the wheel and brakes were off I had him go ahead and instal the new front fender too...

















More to come....

Which pretty much just leaves me with performance.


Which is where we are left at now.

I dropped it off a couple days ago.....and just shipped my heads and cylinders out to Frank at Dragos today!











98" Stage 2.5, 10.5 comp, ported heads with a Black Dragula 2, 2 into 1 exhaust.

Franks thinking about 3 weeks till it's all coming back to me.

5 days there....then 3 weeks....then 5 days back....

It's gonna be a LONG month.

But at least it will give me plenty of time to take the remaining engine covers etc and complete my blacking out of the chrome.

Then it's off for tuning and dyno....100 hp or bust.

Wish me luck and I'll update as I go....

Cool

Go man go...looks really nice thus far. Can't wait to see the Dragula Pipe installed!

We want more!!!



P.S. These would look amazing with your Silver and Black color-scheme.

Looking good! The 08 and earlier bikes and the 88 ci engine is a good platform to mod, you should be very happy with the results.
