HOT BIKE: HOW DID THIS BIKE COME ABOUT?

CAR­TEL BAGGERS: This 2013 Street Glide was our first lay-frame project we built here at Car­tel Baggers of New Jer­sey and could not be any more pleased with the out­come. What just started as a joke in Oc­to­ber 2016 to build a lay-frame bag­ger ended up be­com­ing a re­al­ity. Af­ter months of hard work, sleep­less nights, and run­ning on Dunkin’ Donuts, we were able to fin­ish it just in time for 2017 Day­tona Bike Week.

HB: WHAT CHAL­LENGES DID YOU FACE WHEN BUILD­ING IT?

CB: The ar­gu­ment of what color to choose for this bike be­came a night­mare! Ever seen a group of guys clue­less and star­ing at a box of crayons try­ing to pic­ture a per­fect color? That was us with no idea be­cause we wanted some­thing dif­fer­ent in this build. Along with a good and tal­ented group of guys we made it pos­si­ble.

HB: IS THIS BIKE RID­DEN HARD OR HARDLY RID­DEN?

CB: Many doubted this bike would be able to be rid­den! They called it “trailer queen,” but we made sure we cov­ered all our an­gles to make this bike not only show qual­ity but to be able to cross state lines and break some necks on those high­ways.

This lay-frame bag­ger, which we call the Dead Pool project, has been rid­den out of state nu­mer­ous times with no is­sues. Six months of so much hard work with build time and fab­ri­ca­tion al­lowed us to be able to bring this gor­geous bag­ger into this in­dus­try. Stay tuned be­cause project Dead Pool has a lot more plans pend­ing to ex­e­cute. HB
