Stevenson’s Cycle GL Special









Very representative of what builders have built during these last 5 years, this “GL Special” built by Steve Broyles Senior. & Junior of Stevenson’s Cycle just won The Canada Cup  top Award at the 2009 Motorcycle Supershow held January 2 to 4 in Toronto. Not since 1996 has a U.S. bike won this competition. Money was spent on an S&S 93ci, a Baker Torque Box transmission, a Stevenson’s 
Springer front end,  Weld racing wheels (23” front, 18” rear), an LSD BDL primary, a custom Stevenson Cycle glass oil tank, a Deviant, Hand Grips & Foot Pegs, a hand tooled seat by Duane Ballard, etc. Stevenson’s Cycle (pictures Horst Rösler).

    I saw the GL Special for the first time, at the AMD World Championship this last Sturgis and its even better in person. Steve Broyles and his team at Steveson’s Cycle really out did themselves with this beautifully Designed, Crafted and well Executed motorcycle. The bike is surely deserving of it’s 9th place finish at the AMD, and so It comes as no surprise, that the GL won the Canada Cup. Congratulations Steve, and the entire team at Steveson’s Cycles! Thanks for bringing the cup back to the USA!

    Hi Cyril and congratulations to the team of Stevenson Cycles.
    I am currently trying to find the time to write the feature on this bike, because the images shown would not really picture how harmonic the lines and everything flow together.

    Although I photograph the European- and World-Championship, where a lot of outstanding bikes are presented, this one is special. Before pushing it onto the Studio-setup, I thought that would be a “fast Job”, which still is quite some time at World Championship standards, but as soon as it stood there – and you have to check the tech specs with the unusual wheel sizes at – I realised how special this bike is. If you see it in person, you’ll know. As I said, the images diguise it, but this comes as close as possible to be the “Perfect Bobber”. The lines, the finish, the geometrics – the bike just looked superb from all angles.

    Sometimes I really whish that 3-D digital photography would be more advanced than it currently is – not to mention the computer screens. Then, and only then you would get an idea of what is missing in 2-D photos.

    This bike is all around sweet and can only be fully appreciated in person. Great job

    Yes. A Class act. Thanks for posting.

    FYI…That’s an 2″ Evil Engineering primary. Only a completely unique design from all others and about $2k more than a BDL (and worth every penny)

    When you say “Only a completely unique design from all others ” are you talking about the frame and tank built by Jolly Roger? Thats what makes that bike so special in my opinion, otherwise its the same old stuff they always use on there bikes…
