The Iron Trader News Bagger makeover is FINALLY underway. What’s the project entail? It’s a 2004 Harley Davidson Ultra Classic that is long overdue for some upgrades. It’s still a capable motorcycle but cosmetically it’s a bit behind the times. To that end, we are using a selection of Performance Machine bolt on parts with their contrast cut styling. Brian Klock has sent us one of his new windshields & front fenders, AVON Tyres provided 2 new tires, Mustang Motorcycle Seats provided a terrific seat which may be changed based on the new gas tank, American Suspension has sent us their new bolt on front end kit to support the 26″ wheel that Sam Wakim from RideWright Wheels is sending us. We at Johnny Mac’s Chopper House will do all of the labor and paint work in house.    

Who’s supporting this makeover? Glad you asked, so far we have been very fortunate to partner with: Performance Machine, Ride Wright Wheels, Klock Werks, Johnny Mac’s Chopper House, American Suspension, Metzeler Tires, Mustang Motorcycle Seats, and SuperTrapp.

Stay tuned for still images & VIDEO of this fun project. We hope to have a few special guest hosts off and on & promise to show in detail how each of the components from these terrific sponsors can EASILY be applied to your bagger! And away we go…

AS LOGOSo it begins. To start, we added the American Suspensions Extended Rake 26″ kit. This PATENTED American Suspension Bolt On Neck Kit is designed for quick and easy installation with a focus on strength and stability. The full kit includes – Neck, Stem, Trees, Bushings, Fork Caps, and Bearings. This kit has a full US Patent and made in the USA. The American Suspension Bolt on Neck Kit for Harley bagger motorcycles gives great handling because the geometry is very similar to a weld on kit. The mounting system includes several redundant mounts for maximum reliability. It should take less than 10 minutes to install the neck (a few hours to remove and replace the fairing, wheels and handlebar) The specs for a 26” wheel kit are +4 in the neck and 8 in the trees. So the total rake ends up at 38 Degree. Geometry is Similar to the American Suspension weld in neck that is specifically designed for the 26″ wheel. The specs for a 26X” Extended rake kit are +9 in the neck and 8 in the trees. So the total rake ends up at 43 Degree. The specs for a 30” wheel kit are +9 Deg. in the neck and 12 Deg. in the trees. So the total neck rake ends up at 47 Degree. CHECK OUT MORE HERE

Sam at Ride Wright Wheels sent in this stunning 50 spoke wheel.WHEELSam had the rim powder coated black, which is a killer look for this gloss black H-D Ultra classic. See MORE ON THIS WHEEL HERE. Check out a few ore images below.

WHEEL 2 WHEEL 1Metzeler Tire was kind enough to donate 2 out standing tires to our project. Below see Johnny Mac putting the tire on this stunning Ride Wright wheel. It’s a 26″ wheel / tire, so many shops haven’t the machinery to put on such a tire.
