2013 Candy Orange RG Mods

Hello all,

I just picked up my new bike. I traded in my 2010 Wideglide that I had done a bunch of mods to. I took a lot of the parts off it and will be moving them over eventually.

Here is a pic of the old ride







So, here is what is looked like when I picked her up. I had the daylighter headlights, docking hardware, back rest, Rinehart true dual exhaust, T255 cams, adjustable push rods, HD race tuner and IPOD controller installed.







Here are some pics of the additional mods I have done so far: Floorboards, bag latches and ignition cover. More to come soon like putting my wheels, fender and intake from my old bike on.

I love those floorboards and saddlebag latches, if you powder coat the forks black and use your old wheels, that will set it off even more. A contrast fork slider may be nice too, nice bike.

Exactly what I had in mind. Was also thinking about painting the spokes of my old wheels candy orange and leaving the outer rim black. What do you guys think?

If I ever win the Lotto, I plan to go mag type wheels - bright (or at least partially bright) wheels/disks versus the black calipers and tires. I want to add more contrast in other places too - maybe sculpted cans and either chrome or gloss black sliders, etc. like dbell said.

BTW, I also like your foot-boards and the muff contrast too (chrome versus black). I think that contrast helps set the Candy Orange on fire.

Bring 'em home or send us back!!

I made a little more progress on the build last night. I installed PM shift and brake levers.

I have bag extensions off at paint and should have them back Friday or Saturday. I also have some replacement exhaust tips to put on. I will post up some pics after I get it all installed.

My new grips and hand levers showed up yesterday as well. I'm still trying to decide on my bars. So, those will have to wait to get installed until I figure that out. Does anyone have suggestions on bars? I'm thinking something pulled back a little....

Carlini bars are different and the curve gives a real nice pull back. The website customer pics are great but they look awesome in person. Because of the bars bends, go two inches over what you need for the cable/brake lines. IE if you run 16"s and normally need +10, go with like 12. If you do that the lines will have the length to follow the bars and cleanup the look.

Your old bike looked nice, how much work to make the dyna wheels work on the glide?

The wheel bearings will need to be changed out to match the new axles and new spacers made. It shouldn't be that big of a deal.
