Big Roaring Toyz By Roaring Twinz

During these last years I have seen many American V-Twin Custom Builders crossing over to show their skills using foreign bikes as their platforms, mainly English and sometimes Japanese. More rarely the opposite. Robert Fisher comes from the Japanese Custom Scene where, at a young age, he has already established his name, owning the distinction of being the one of the 1st Builders to create truly radical Kawasakis commissioned by the factory, but also applying his skills to turn Yamaha and Suzuki sport bikes into very fast rolling pieces of art. And now for the 1st time, under the banner of Roaring Twinz, Robert just created this 2011 Harley Davidson Street Glide, an interesting exercise because his objective was to build a custom bagger with lots of style but without sacrificing any of the function of the original bike. Exactly the kind of strict requirement that all oem manufacturer would make to any Custom Builder. 

This high end bolt-on work takes advantage of the alliances Robert Fisher established in the past with after-market metric part manufacturers and the new ones he made with American V-Twin suppliers. First task was to replace the stock Harley Street Glide wheels with larger diameter ones, and opting for a set of premium Element model from leader Performance Machine in black anodizing Contrast Cut, in sizes 23″ for the front and 18 x 8.5″ for the rear. They are matched by 13″ rotors and brakes from the same brand, front end being now setup in single 6-piston caliper. As you all know now, installing large diameter donuts implied a re=engineering of the Street Glide geometry to keep a good trail and consequently not compromise good handling. Mission accomplished by making room for the larger 23″ front wheel using a raked triple tree set from Tricky and a drop-in fork lowering kit from Progressive Suspension. The rear of the bike was lowered using an Air Dragger air ride rear suspension kit also from Progressive Suspension. A proven winning formula if you want to tour in style and safely on big rollers.

For a simple bodywork modification with the maximum impact Roaring Twinz chose a set of Milwaukee Bagger 4″ extended bags installed along a matching rear fender with integrated L.E.D. taillight and turn signals, then bolted-on a stretched out Paul Yaffee gas tank reshaped at the bottom to accept the stock seat. Robert Fisher having shown us the best of what can be done today using only some of the best catalog bagger parts, his next objective is now, strong of this experience, to create his own line of after-market touring parts. Robert Fisher already owns CNC machines on which he turned some cool metric parts. Let’s see what he can bring to you for your American bike. Roaring Twinz.

    Very nice blend of form and function. Interesting paint. I’d really like to build something similar using a Victory Cross Country platform.

    Mr. Fisher has a very bright future ahead.

    Hey everybody, let’s just give credit, where credit is due. It is a nice looking Street Glide
    with bolt on’s not bad for a first effort, nothing we have not seen before or will not see again.
    But, remember he comes from the world of sport bikes where his products are Aces/Top Shelf .
    If you relly want to see something cool, go to his website and see what he’s done to a 2011 Kawasaki Vaquero. For those of you who live under a rock, don;t look at ANY of the magazines, or are just too H-D blinded to see any other bike, the Vaquero is just about the hotttest light tourer going. A lot of H-D guys here in the Centerof the Country/Midwest have been caught eyeing this bike compared to a Road Glide and some of them (Gasp, the Horror) have bought both red & black models and “jumped ship”. It’s so new that Kawasaki only have about 35 accessory parts for it . They took it and made parts and / made stuff that was not designed for thie bike fit and made it look GOOD!!!!
    Hey Cyril, how about getting a look at the Vaquero on this blog ????
    I alos agree with Boomer, I’d luv to see whatthey could do with a Victory Cross Country, Hmmm???

    Those who know Robert Fisher or Roaring Toys know what he the company is capable of.

    He is by no means a new kid on the block and is capable of out riding most.

    Good businessman and a capable parts maker, builder and racer.

    It will be interesting to see were he goes with the cruiser market, Innovative.

    Robert I will say that you have thrown me a curve here with the Harley, grin,

    I remember when one could be cut short for mentioning Harley Davidson. Oh well water under the bridge.

    Good luck , nice looking ride

    @Blackmax — agreed on the Vaquero. Sweet machine for sure and Bob sure did a hell of a job making his custom. Here’s the video I found on his site: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=weN-JMnNcMo
