Other Information

The wife and I had been talking about buying a custom street glide. One Sunday afternoon while hanging out on the back patio we were looking online and noticed this bike. We called The Bike Exchange on Monday morning and ended up buying the bike that day. We didn’t sleep for a couple nights after we bought the custom bagger sight unseen. We decided to drive to North Carolina to pick it up and meet the guys that created the bike in person rather than having it shipped. After a 15-hour road trip to N.C. the bike was even better looking in person. It was great meeting the fabrication and paint guys. The paint guy said this was his first time doing a lace paint job and even used the curtains from his living room. I must say I think he knock it out of the park. After 2 hours at the shop we loaded up the bike and got back on the road for our 15 hour ride home. The people at The Bike Exchange were great to work with and good down to earth people. Although I enjoyed all 30 hours in the car with my lovely wife, I think I’ll have the bike shipped next time.
