Bring­ing the Club-style Dyna Vibe to the New Sof­tail .....................................................

With the 2018 Sof­tail lineup wip­ing out our beloved Dy­nas, away went our cool club-style bikes—for about one month. For a mo­ment there, it was a race to see who could build the first hot-rod­ded Sof­tail. So­cial me­dia was quickly lit up with any of the new bikes that pulled off the sig­na­ture Dyna style. Was any­one re­ally doubting that the af­ter­mar­ket com­pa­nies would let that trend just die sud­denly? Well, thanks to Bung King and trusty Har­ley-david­son, you can up­grade to the new Sof­tail plat­form without sac­ri­fic­ing your tall white socks, Simp­son hel­met and Vans Clas­sics.

HAR­LEY-DAVID­SON QUAR­TER-FAIR­ING AND LOCK­ING QUICK-RE­LEASE WIND­SHIELD CLAMPS

There might be a hand­ful of pop­u­lar quar­ter-fair­ings out there for the Dyna, but one of the most pop­u­lar ones by far is the one that comes from H-D it­self. The prob­lem is the brack­ets that come with it will not work with the 49 mm front forks that the new Softails are sport­ing. So in place of those, you get a set of the lock­ing quick-re­lease wind­shield clamps for Har­leys as well. These are great for two rea­sons: One, they lock, so some bozo can’t grab and dash while you are away, and two, if you don’t feel like rock­ing it one day, you can just pop it off without the need for tools. For the Vivid Black quar­ter-fair­ing, you will be look­ing at $399.95, and $41.95 per lock­ing clamp (four to­tal). Each comes with two keys.

BUNG KING QUAR­TER-FAIR­ING TO 49 MM BRACKET KIT AND ONE-PIECE LOWER HANDLEBAR RISER

The other piece to the puz­zle in re­gard to in­stalling the quar­ter-fair­ing to the new 49 mm front end on the new Sof­tail is the quar­ter-fair­ing to 49 mm bracket kit from Bung King ($95). This kit screws onto the Har­ley fair­ing in place of the fac­tory brack­ets, and the quick-re­lease clamps from H-D bolt onto the new Bung King brack­ets di­rectly. So, with the fair­ing on, we needed to fin­ish the look by adding some T-bars. For that, we used Bung King’s com­plete one­piece lower riser ($182.50) and Bung King’s CR high-bend bars ($115), but you can use an­other tracker-style bar of your choos­ing. If you’re look­ing to add a lit­tle Dyna style to the new Sof­tail Street Bob, then this kit is for you.
