Biker Ball Pics

This past weekend was the Tumbleweed's Biker Ball held at Tumbleweed's Bar & Grill in Monroe. We actually sponsored the Ride In Bike Show held on Saturday. The weather was a little cool but nothing too bad. We had a great turnout!
There were tons of vendors set up. A group of Flat Track Riders were on hand promoting their sport. These bikes were brought by Grady Cagle and Frank Lackey.
They had trailer set up for Dyno-Wars. A lot of horsepower was sent through this thing! They had prizes for Most Horsepower and Least Horsepower!
Final Finish was on hand to detail bikes before the bike show!
This was a Motorcycle Hearse that showed up. He was over 20 foot long with his bike and the hearse.
There was a huge turnout for the events!
If you missed this event, be sure you come out to the next one! We had a lot of fun! There were tons of prizes and contests! A little something for everyone!

Another Bagger Project. . .

I just wanted to share the latest project that our technician has been working on. He fabricated a set of lower bag extensions to custom fit around a set of Rhinehart Tru-Duals. The bags are fully accessible for more storage. As you can see from the pictures, they turned out great!
Clint, our technician, has also done all of the painting and fabrication on this bike. Since the pictures, he has went back and changed the Rhinehart tips to a Slash cut tip that contours with the bag.

This bike will be at the Bikers Ball held at Tumbleweeds in Monroe, NC this weekend. If you are interested in upgrading your bagger, feel free to contact us at 704-289-3457. Be sure to ask for Chris or Clint!

Way to go Clint . . . NICE JOB!!

2008 Street Glide

This is one of our projects going on at this time. The customer recently bought this bike after getting fed up with his Hot Rod continuously breaking down. He was not satisfied with the sound of the stock exhaust. I suggested the Rhinehart Tru-Dual Exhaust System. He decided to go with my suggestion and was happy with the results! Not only did the pipe give a better look, it also provided more horsepower and a great sound. He told me this was only the beginning! He has now decided that he wants me to install a Power Commander. I suggested the Dyna Jet USB3 for his bike. We will be installing it next week.

As far as performance goes, that is probably all we are going to do to this bike. With the motor already being a 1450 Fuel Injected Twin Cam, it does not lack horsepower!

The plans he has next is to change the look of the bike cosmetically. We have come up with some great ideas to customize this bike! I will keep you updated on this 08 Street Glide project.
