2013 Harley Davidson Street Glide

What was your intended objective when you started the build?

I wanted to build a budget bike that was show quality and handled as well as a stock setup.

What motivated you to start your project?

In 2014 I t-boned a car on a sport bike. I shattered my left arm  and refused to ride for 3 years. Eventually, One of my good buddies bought a Harley Davidson Road Glide and did a little custom work on it. I was really impressed with the way it looked so wanted to see what I could do with a Street Glide.

What was the most unique and creative thing you did to the bike?

The most unique and creative thing I did was definitely the bags and rear fender. I started with straight +6 stretched fiberglass bags. I used 15 cans of Great Stuff spray foam and using a razor blade, I hand carved the shape I wanted. After I got the shape I smoothed it out with sand paper and fiberglassed over the top of the foam mold. I built the fiberglass fender overlay completely from scratch.

What are you most proud of?

I’m most proud of the rear fender and bags.

What do other people say about your motorcycle?

“That bike is insane!”

    I know the man that built this bike. So much time of his time and hard work was put in to this. I keep telling him to open up his own business because as you can tell by the look of this bike, he has a passion for it. You do amazing work!
    Turnin’ heads erry where he goes..
    Missing you all the way from Arkansas!

    Fantastic out come. I lived next to Billy for a few years and watched him spend many nights on this bike. He has the drive and passion too make things correct, visually and mechanically. His attention to detail is amongst some of the best people I know.

    I saw some pictures of this bike in the process and new it would be a masterpiece when finished. When Billy sets his mind to something he sees it through completion that is for sure! Great looking bike, a real head turner!

    This bike looks awesome! The bike transforms from BA in the front to smooth and fast in the back. I love the paint detail and the hidden yet effective lighting. I feel this design could inspire a new Marvel hero (or villain). Well done Billy!
