Based off an 07 Harley-Davidson Street Glide, we set out to create something to the best of their knowledge, hadn’t been done before: an MX-Style Bagger Build. Already sporting a selection of “off-road MX-style” pegs that fit Sportster and Dyna models, the next product to make it’s way down the chute for us had to be something for the HD Touring models, thus leading to the MX-Style Floorboards.
With the MX Floorboards molding the shape for the build, we took the rest of the bike in a flat track direction with a variety of our own parts including 13” Bagger Bars and an accompanying cable kit, a prototype headlight grill, the aforementioned floor boards and a prototype shift and brake lever. Other parts included on the build are: dual 19” Performance Machine wheels and components, Dunlop flat track tires, a Mustang seat, a one-off exhaust and fuel-pak from Vance & Hines, and a killer paint scheme by “Paint by Smokey” to tie it all together!
Once we got the bike dialed in, the next step could only be taking it to the track to get it sideways and prove it’s not just SHOW but also GO! The one and only Jimmy Burnouts was the man for the job after winning at Costa Mesa Speedway Harley Night on his Street Glide with street tires. This is a guy that knows his way around a performance based Bagger after all!
With that, the Dirt Bagger was taken to Milestone MX first for some glamour shots and then later is when the fun began. Jimmy showed up with all his MX gear ready but there was one problem; the track was not paved because the tractor broke the week before. The wind was howling and it all seemed like it was going down hill fast until the biggest rocks were removed by hand and Jimmy started doing some test runs. As it turns out, with Mr. Burnouts’ high level of skill and handling, the uneven terrain was just good enough to slide around. To make it even better, the track’s conditions made for some KILLER photos and video! After what had to be more than 40 laps around that crazy track the day came to a close and both Jimmy and for the most part the Bagger, left unscathed.
While most people’s jaws would drop to the floor at the mere idea of taking a $20k+ bike (let alone a Street Glide) onto a dirt track, pushing the envelope and going against the grain has always been the Burly Brand way.
What’s next for the Dirt Bagger? Probably Jimmy doing what he does best which is taking it to the street to see what it can REALLY do!
