2004 Road Glide Build

Finally bought my Harley this last June of 2015, A 2004 Road Glide with 15,000 original miles. Ive wanted a Bagger forever and sick of seeing the same old Street Glide or Electra. I found the bike online at a local dealer, went to look at it and it was clean. The low miles and it didn't even look like anyone's rode it. They wouldn't budge on price so I walked away. Few weeks later the bike was still there so I emailed the same sales guys and they finally came around. Took it for a test drive and I was hooked. I really wanted something I wouldn't see at every bike night and the fact its a road glide and the color was it.
This was the day I brought her home.


First thing was to get rid of the yellow turn signals and stock tail light,

Totally miss my bike, had the same color. I loved it because I would hit a show and not see another the same color. Min e just had too many miles and I wanted the tech upgrades. Enjoy from San Diego

Nice Start

Looks like an original color and a good place to start.

Thanks everybody, It was super clean when I got. That was just the tip of the iceberg for modifications, Ive been busy all winter.
I started my research here and various other threads. First thing was to purchase a set of Cyclevision +2 bars from another form member.

After doing a bunch of research I decided to do a 18" air strike with a full on Brembo conversion. Pretty much scored everything online for a screaming deal. So I collected everything over the summer while putting some miles on the bike. Finally winter came around and started the tear the bike apart.

I decided to switch it up and add some black to the bike to really make this color pop. So tore apart the front end to have the lowers, stock rotors from a 2010 and the new handle bars powder coated black


After the parts were back from powder coating, I went ahead and internally wired the handle bars for a clean look.


I reassembled the front end with 15 weight fork oil for better performance and a complete slider rebuild.
