The Stock Out Of It This 2017 Electra Glide Ultra Classic is beautiful and classic. We felt that this Crushed Ice Pearl and Frosted Teal paint scheme already speaks for itself, hearkening back the Harley’s of the past, but with a modern twist. As the saying goes, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!” We decided to keep the customization simple and understated, though we feel it still would make a big impact where it counts. The goal was to take this Ultra Classic and make it the ultimate touring machine, without making it something garish. We wanted to keep the icy color scheme through- out the bike, so we ordered color-matched vent trim in Crushed Ice Pearl and a painted inner fairing in the same shade. The flow of the bike isn’t broken up this way, giving the fairing a clean and well-ap- pointed appearance. The Crushed Ice Pearl is such a stunning color that it would have not packed the same punch without it! To add to the functionality of the bike, we added the Air Wing luggage rack kit with built-in LED light. When you are heading out on the road, every little bit of storage counts. This bike is going to carry all of your luggage and gear with style, and you can be confident that you can fit what you need to make the journey. With the flush LED light, you attain added visibility without adding bulk or losing storage. With a beautiful bike, why not add some shine? Chrome was the icing on the cake, and we decided to have the icing in moderation with this one. We added chrome hand controls with Airflow heated grips. They are eye catching and purposeful. Living in Missouri, you learn that heated grips are one of the things that can add days, even weeks, onto your rid- ing season and can make the chilly night rides much more comfortable. While seemingly a small thing, they make a co- lossal impact on your ride quality. If you have ever enjoyed a heated seat in your car, you know that these babies are a good investment. Our hands are always the most exposed when we ride and the hardest to keep warm! We also added chrome windshield trim and chrome speaker trim. The subtle added shine provides a little ex- tra to the bike, complimenting the cool tones of the paint scheme without compromise. The best part of customizing a bike is making it fit you. This means that you can go as simple or as complicated as you desire. If you are looking to make a change to your Harley-Davidson motorcycle, we would love to help you create your vision!
