Harley Davidson Street Glide build…nope not a golf cart *Part 4*

It has been a while since we posted on the Street glide build, we have been swamped building golf carts, but we have still squeezed in sometime here and there to work on this cool scoot!

Some of our parts back from powder

With the fork tubes back from powder it was time to rebuild them

IMG_9806

The internals looked great!

IMG_9807

Everything looks brand new inside

IMG_9808

Here we had to install the travel limiters to ensure we didn’t crash our triple trees into the fender

IMG_9809

All back together and ready for oil

IMG_9811

Time to fill up the forks

IMG_9813

On with the powder coated cans

IMG_9814

Next were the fork tubes

We installed the front wheel and test fitted the fender

The bike has a mean low look

We pulled the tank off to get ready to fit up the stretched shrouds

The tank is off…

and we have now prepped it for the adhesive

Test fitting the shrouds

IMG_0675

Everything looks good from this angle

Once we were happy with the fit we applied the two part adhesive and then used the handymans secrete weapon

Duct tape!!!

While the shrouds set we took to stripping the gauges out of the inner fairing, it went quick with our little helper!

IMG_0680

This one first she pointed out

IMG_0683

All stripped and ready to be prepped and painted

IMG_0668

After fitting the rear fender to the pipes we weren’t happy with the look of the cut fender

IMG_0669

so we made some simple molds so that we could apply some fiberglass

IMG_0687

Here is the fender with the new fiberglass work

IMG_0688

This is just rough and is now ready for finishing

IMG_0689

Before we finish it we did another test fit, this really finishes the look of the fender

IMG_0691

With the shrouds set we pulled off the duct tape

IMG_0693

It is really starting to come together now

A final shot of how everything is flowing together nicely

We are having a blast building this machine and we can’t wait to get to work on it some more.

If you haven’t had a chance to look at part 3 have a look now!
