Why I Bought a Club Style Harley off Craigslist | Walk Around, Cold Start, Harley Wheelie Challenge!

  • I was going to do a big "bike reveal" but then I wouldn't be able to put anything in the title, so here it is instead. I picked this up about a month ago with the intent to learn Harley Wheelies! This has been a dream of mine for years. The only problem is I couldn't wheelie on any motorcycle. So, back in October I picked up a Honda Grom. A few months later I got myself a SuperMoto (Suzuki DRZ). Those were great bikes for getting my feet wet. While still very unprepared, I found this 2013 Harley Street Bob Custom (103 Cubic Inch) and decided to pick it up. I looked at it for well over a month before reaching out and making the dude an offer (vid on that to come). Anyway, join me for this Harley Wheelie journey if you dare. I still have TONS of work ahead. Enjoy!
    Gear I Use:

    What are your thoughts on the "club style Dyna"? Would you mob around on something like this?

      @anthony FXBB Thanke, man! If I figure out the specifics, I'll let you know. They were on the bike when I bought it so not sure exactly what they came off of.

    • anthony FXBB

      I have a club style softail streetbob. Still building it little by little . If you happen to find out what wheels those are please let us know. Those are sick!

      Jon's Moto Garage  8 months ago

      @KIRBOSKI I appreciate the support, brother! I think you'll enjoy the new fatbob if you get your hands on one. I kind of regret selling the one I had, but i got the dyna so it's all good. I have a few vids of the fatbob if you go through my videos (I did a knee drag in one of em - that bike was so smooth!).

    Your going to regret doing wheeles.

    • Jon's Moto Garage
      Jon's Moto Garage  8 months ago

      That may very well end up being the case. Thanks for checking out the channel! Ride safe!

  • TXDrifter
    TXDrifter 8 months ago +1

    Did you go over the brand of exhaust? I like the 2 into 1 and that has a nice turndown to it.... Just found your channel, love the content so far... Subbed.... In regards to being a poser, you are riding... which is more than the average person can say, but you are attempting to wheelie a machine that really isn't meant to do so, which only a select few ever attempt much last master. Best of luck on the channel and also getting your wheelies down.

    • Jon's Moto Garage
      Jon's Moto Garage  8 months ago

      @TXDrifterdang! I had no idea the exhaust was that much!? My only complaint, and not sure if you run into the same issue on other brands, is my heel rests on the pipe when I'm trying to wheelie - like it gets in the way a bit. It also limits how much you can adjust the rear brake. Nothing major. Dude, I've been eyeing the low rider s for a while. Cali seems to have the most options for built bikes. But at least you're gonna end up with your ideal set up. Let me know if you post any vids!

    • TXDrifter
      TXDrifter 8 months ago +1

      Jon's Moto Garage yeah, I've heard of them. They are out of New Orleans, LA. That pipe is like $1,800. I wanted one so bad, but settled for TBR Comp S... I wish we had bikes like that for sale out here in Texas. I bought a stock Low Rider S and have been buying parts little by little

    • Jon's Moto Garage
      Jon's Moto Garage  8 months ago

      The exhaust is royal t racing. I believe they do all custom stuff if I'm not mistaken. Thanks for checking the channel and commenting! I appreciate the encouragement and support! More to come as long as I don't kill myself. Hahaha. Ride safe, brotha!

  • Pablo Escobar
    Pablo Escobar 8 months ago +1

    That thing is baddas! Looking to pick up my first harley and in between a sportster 1200 and dyna. How much did you pick it up for? I live in cali but prices should be relatively the same

    • Jon's Moto Garage
      Jon's Moto Garage  8 months ago

      Thanks for checking the channel! I haven't done a price reveal yet on the bike. Frankly, I paid a bit on the high end cause there weren't a lot of options when I was buying. Cali has a better market from what I've seen. I saw a 2014 dyna low rider already set up club style for 14kobo. I was close to rolling out and picking it up myself, but the dude sold it. Only had 3k miles.

    I dunno, man....that looks like a damn sweet ride to me. Check out Theo Friggin Deor's channel...he wheelies every episode on those. I'm a fan of that style. BTW, you ain't no poser. I hold that title on my electric sport. hahahahahaha

    • Randy's Rides
      Randy's Rides 9 months ago +1

      @Jon's Moto Garage I'll be watching !!! I'm addicted to bike related channels...I'll catch up on all your vids soon...lol

      Jon's Moto Garage  9 months ago +1

      @Randy's Rides don't worry, I plan to post wheelie progress. Unfortunately I ran into a few issues with the bike recently (vid to come on that specifically). Seems to be a common thread with these bikes when newbies try to wheelie them. Lol. Almost like the bike wasn't built to be completely thrashed.... But I plan to post regularly regarding the wheelie status.

    • Randy's Rides
      Randy's Rides 9 months ago +1

      @Jon's Moto Garage I subbed, so I'm expecting to see wheelie progress...hahahaha. J/K Ride safe, and I'm totally jealous of that stable....... :P

      Hahahaha...we all have a bit of poser in us. Lol. Yeah, I'm a big fan/sub of TheoFrigginDeor! Him and MannyMoto are two that I kept coming across in my search for good dyna content. Thanks for checking the channel, bro!

    Nice bike! You'll get those wheelies down, have you checked out Theofreakindore's channel? He motovlogs on his low rider and we got to watch him learn how to wheelie and he's got it down now

    • Jon's Moto Garage
      Jon's Moto Garage  9 months ago

      Yeah, him and mannymoto are two of my go to's for the dyna wheelies!

    • Jon's Moto Garage
      Jon's Moto Garage  9 months ago

      Hahaha. No kidding. The dude seriously said it was 4000 acres of private property. I couldn't believe it. Aside from him and I, there were no other people within a square mile of that spot. I'm the guy that buys a harley and just rides down the street to the wheelie spot :) Lol. I'll get out to the backroads eventually though.

  • ShortRiderAz

    Nice bike man , I just got my 2016 Dyna street bob about a month ago (my dream bike Bro) all stock and I’m going to do a club style just like you have right now pretty neat 👍🏻

    • Jon's Moto Garage
      Jon's Moto Garage  9 months ago +1

      @ShortRiderAz yeah, this one's a keeper! I need to dial in the wheelie game. Eventually I'd like to get the low rider s, or possibly a new softail but that'll be a long ways out.

    • ShortRiderAz

      Congrats on the new bike! I may have asked already, but are you local in the valley? Keep me posted in the bike build! So far I'm loving the dyna (well, love- hate cause these wheelies are so dang hard. Lol)!

      Right!? I used to think they were the ugliest things ever, but how they're like a piece of art to me. Lol. I'm 2/2 so far on looping, so we'll see...haha. jk.

  • Rule Hard Garage

    The chain conversion is very needed. Once you start doing wheelies they destroy belts. I built an exhaust and custom t bars for a dyna a few years back. They are very fun bikes. They are just pigs.

    • Rule Hard Garage

      @Jon's Moto Garage best of luck with the wheelies. Never done much in Dynas. Just Sportsters.

    • Jon's Moto Garage
      Jon's Moto Garage  9 months ago +2

      Pigs for sure! Lol. I go through half a tank in a 30 minute wheelie practice sesh. Hahaha! Regarding the chain, that's exactly what I was finding to be the consensus online as well.

    • Jon's Moto Garage
      Jon's Moto Garage  9 months ago +1

      Plus I plan to get out on more long rides with this, so you guys can see more than Jon's moto garage and Jon's neighborhood. Lol.

    • Jon's Moto Garage
      Jon's Moto Garage  9 months ago +2

      Yeah, the club style is definitely an acquired taste. I still don't know how it initially came about. But it feels good to be back on the harley saddle!
