    Matt you forgot the most important part! the FISHTAILS! you got to have the sound and that look! You keep saying "lowrider", should have lowered the front end 2 inches, that would really help.
    Nice bike other wise..

      Yea, we wanted to do fish tails but at the time no one made them for the M8 engine. Plus on a new bike it’s tough for CARB reasons.

    I have these same pips for sale NEW $150 anyone?


    I want a bike very similar to this one. I love the heritage classic soft tail with the California CHICANO style look. Several years ago I was forced to sell my bike. I swore I'd someday replace it with a super comfortable bike for long rides with my wife. I like the goldwing but the looks and style just isn't there with the goldwing.
    I plan on buying from Laidlaw because of how your pricing is set up. Dealer mark up crap!
    Should be doing this within the next 30-60 days. I will be using cash......no financialng needed. Can someone from your sales dept. get ahold of me thru email? Nthdegreedrone@gmail.com Thanks

    You need to delete the emblems, fishtail exhaust, 21 inch fat daddy spokes in the front. Beautiful bike though.

    How tall is the guy on the bike. Because I am too short for those 18s. But I really like the style of that bike with those bars. I am 5foot 8 by the way. What are some of your suggestions Matt.

    Can you do the same vicla look on a slim? It would be a little more affordable , you think ?not to take away anything from the deluxe that is a great idea I know you might be giving HD ideas they should compensate you for .its just my thoughts. Keep up the good work Matt .

    Those chrome switch housings are not available from Harley as "2018", only the ones with cruise control. Maybe earlier versions fit, how would I know?

    • Matt Laidlaw
      Matt Laidlaw  Year ago +1

      Yea, it can be done. I think maybe we put the 2018 ones on with the cruise. You can call our Shop and ask. I forget exactly what we did.

    You had to add the engine guard too if i'm not mistaken. Love the build. How much did the entire build cost?

    Is that rear suspension more sporty?

    • Matt Laidlaw
      Matt Laidlaw  Year ago

      The air ride suspension is softer and less reactive then a spring suspension. So if you’re looking for “Sporty” then stick to the stock.

    Something I would've turned my nose up at years ago...really has grown on me. Done with sportbikes. I'm ready to enjoy the ride no matter what speed. Like turning from a jockey to a cowboy. Now only if Ontario Canada laws didnt make these bars illegal.

    Did factory 47 hook you up with the cabling for the apes or did you have to go somewhere else? I'm getting a 2018 deluxe and wanna throw some apes on it.

    Curious as to how that air ride feels. I had an air ride that was just awful. It essentially turned the bike into a hard tail. Every time I went over a buckle in the pavement a jolt of kinetic energy would go straight up my back. Had to go back to a custom mono shock. Do the airbags give it a cushier ride?

    PG ROAD GLIDE 15 Year ago

    Should have put Samson or factory 47 fishtails on their, duals, Legend air ride good quality but don't ever drop it at a stoplight you have to wait forever for it to get back up again lol , they're way overpriced to, , bigger Rim in the front Les Tire, get rid of that silly star,, and get rid of that serape, , lose the two inch white walls reduce it to A 1". Then you'll get some buyers,
    Hey you asked""!! Lol

    I'm 6.4 to tall for these bikes. If the bikes had a bigger frame I'm sure more would be sold. To bad they're good looking bikes. I ride choppers!

    Hi Matt, great vid as always. Need some unassociated advice if possible, i have a new 2018 Twisted Cherry BO, unfortunately I dropped it off the stand while cleaning so there were two very small dents in the tank, tried to get them pushed out by a pro but the paint blistered. The problem I have is that i live in the Philippines and the level of service in all aspects is of fabrication/painting etc is not up to the requisite standard and im finding it difficult to get this done here? So, the question I have would it be possible to purchase a new 2018 new Twisted Cherry tank for my Breakout and at what cost. Appreciate you advise on this pretty stressful issue :(
