More and more we are finding that the second bike in most custom owners’ garages comes from the bagger line. Could be a Road King, could be an FLHTCUI, but baggers are quickly getting past the old man’s bike stigma and becoming a hot property. We, of course, felt we could make an FLHT a lot hotter and much more befitting of a HOT BIKE staff member, so HOT BIKE Ad Sales Manager Craig Murrow’s ’01 FLHT went under the parts catalog.
We decided that while custom is cool, there was no reason why we couldn’t do everything we wanted to Murrow’s ride with bolt-on parts from the Drag Specialties catalog. So, we ordered a very cool one-piece gas tank, 6.25-inch RWD steel front fender, and raw metal framerail covers to fill in between the bags and rear fender. Sure, paint would be required, but really no changes that can’t happen in a modestly equipped garage are necessary. Take a look at what we accomplished in less than eight hours.
And here’s the finished result. Pretty dramatic, huh?
