StreetMaster Bagger

Streetmaster1Streetmaster2Streetmaster3Streetmaster6Streetmaster4For sure, Custom Baggers will be trending for a few more years. So many have jumped or are still jumping in the design and production of after-market parts to make tourers more beautiful to look at. True in the USA, but also in Europe experiencing the same market shift to baby boomers who want to continue to ride, but comfortably and in style. As a showcase of the new Thunderbike Germany line of custom parts for tourers, “StreetMaster” is a very good example of what is the dream bike of aging bikers who want it all, the reliability of a long range Harley in a beautiful custom designed package. of parts. Arrived at destination, just a wash and some detailing, and its owner could even get some gold in a bike show.

    everyone all together now……… supergay!!!

    Such a great looking bike, lots of custom tweaks and swooping lines, spoiled by another stupid stupid stupid stupid stupid stupid giant front wheel. Someday in the not too distant future we’re going to be laughing our asses off at these things. Imagine the huge sums of money paint shops are going to be making matching the paint jobs to new fenders needed for retrofitting “real” front wheels & tires. Seriously I really DO like the bike, it just fell into the fad trap with that tire. Nothing that can’t be fixed, and ridden.

  3. 3 Boots Feb 4th, 2013 at 11:28 am

    The big front wheel fad has to end!

    Take a perfectly good touring comfortable ride and turn it into a BIG WHEEL, if he drove it backwards he could plow Snow…. ugly ugly ugly and to a 2012 never the less…..

  6. 6 Oldude Feb 4th, 2013 at 11:34 am

    On second thought why not just buy a Victory bagger ? They look almost the same!

  7. 7 domino Feb 4th, 2013 at 12:26 pm

    Does the fairing travel with the front fork?!?! Look at the distance between the fender and fairing… Have we heard from anybody that likes the big wheels? Who buys them? Come on, don’t be afraid… Who are you??

  8. 8 Shanedrive Feb 4th, 2013 at 12:36 pm

    You almost made me choke on my sandwich. Started laughing because I just got back in from plowing snow all morning. By god you’re right, that F’er would work for plowing!

    “Gold in a bike show?” Which show might that be?
    Hell, my bike doesn’t even have any paint, and it beat a couple of those monstrosities last time around. I predict the look will fade away once Junior decides tiny wheels should be the new cutting edge.

  10. 10 roscoe Feb 4th, 2013 at 1:25 pm

    It’s got just about as much plastic as a Goldwing, just has less luggage space and looks silly.

  11. 11 Chaos cycle Feb 4th, 2013 at 2:21 pm

    While not a fan of huge wheels what most of you miss is the fact that most of these bike lead to are some pretty cool parts, like the radial calipers, fork legs that accept them, and the 3d machined wheel with intergrated rotors. Its a great bike that someone put lots of time into designing and fabbing, even more important a way to showcase some very cool parts that will someday grace production harleys that most of you haters will be plunking wads of cash down to own

  12. 12 Seymour Feb 4th, 2013 at 3:19 pm

    It’s great and bad-assed.

    PS I’m 6.

  13. 13 Mike Feb 4th, 2013 at 3:19 pm

    @domino: no, there is simply an airride suspension, which is listed in the tech-sheet. I don´t know how much their suspension lifts up, but probably around 10cm.

    TÜV in germany is nothing you can get with a crappy ridable bike, because it´s tested for top-speed at the Autobahn. You can hit a pothole without being pitched 😉
    The vee rubber tire is in fact not great, but until metzler or avon create something better, it´s all the bagger-builders have.

    The times when only guys from the industry commented here are sadly over. Thanks Cyril for showing cool bikes every week, even if you get trolled from time to time.

  14. 14 Kingpoopa Feb 4th, 2013 at 3:59 pm

    Looks like a Victory to me! AH who is “mimiking” who now………………

  15. 15 MADrider Feb 4th, 2013 at 4:12 pm

    Take a descent looking bagger and to jack it up with a comic book front wheel. I would risk to say that fad will go away like the steamroller unridable 2 foot wide rear wheel. It just as useless as a one of those unrideable doorstop theme things out of NY.

  16. 16 Rodent Feb 4th, 2013 at 5:39 pm

    Made in Germany says it all…..Best bikes are made in America!

  17. 17 Johny Letgo. Feb 4th, 2013 at 5:49 pm

    Another untruthful comment by Rodent…

  18. 18 FXDX805 Feb 4th, 2013 at 6:27 pm

    Even my 12 year old daughter thinks it’s a turd.

  19. 19 roadrash Feb 4th, 2013 at 8:10 pm

    Chaos Cycle, response… what good r all those cool parts you mentioned if the bike looks like a cartoon bike it meansd nothing but wasted time , money, and fabricating, like putting a big tire on a victory what good is that i ask ? nada, nothing, intergraded rotors have been around longer than you have, and as far as intergrated parts that you think Harley will grace, dont think that will ever happen and I’m willing to bet he put down more cash for what he did than harley would ever do, but again why ? its ugly and does copy a victory as everyone else has noticed

  20. 20 CrankyPat Feb 4th, 2013 at 8:44 pm

    To each his own I guess.

    It hurts my eyes to look at it. Just sayin’.

  21. 21 Rodent Feb 4th, 2013 at 9:37 pm

    Johny Letgo
    Sorry to upset your expertise! Harley was invented in America by Americans!

  22. 22 Rodent Feb 4th, 2013 at 9:48 pm

    Hey Letgo, most comments say the bike sucks!

  23. 23 BobS Feb 4th, 2013 at 9:48 pm

    You know if the custom bagger industry brings us better brakes I’m all for that. But the huge wheel and skinny tire just looks cartoonish. Same as with cars.

  24. 24 roadrash Feb 4th, 2013 at 11:09 pm

    Well as far as cool parts as someone mentioned maybe so but its like a fancy wrapped package with a ugly gift inside. and as far as harley ever doing something like that it is highly unlikely, and the intergrated rotors they have been around for years, so it aint no big thing, and it looks like the lower legs are from a sport bike which also has been around just as long, other wise its still UGLY, and impractical to turn a 2012 touring bike into something that should have been in the Roger Rabbit Movie, NUFF SAID !

  25. 25 Nobody Feb 5th, 2013 at 12:02 am

    Not what I’d do, but then it wasn’t my dime that payed for it., so take with ample salt.

  26. 26 Jusmecuz Feb 5th, 2013 at 1:01 am

    bottom, left pic…. remind me of “big bird” on sesame street

  27. 27 badams Feb 5th, 2013 at 1:13 am

    Big front wheel trend? Look back to Inglewood’s Rare Breed club in the early 2000’s. Same place the shopper was born in the 60’s. Besides Rare Breed guys, Thunderbike and Krugger’s baggers are the only ones who seem to pull this look off.

  28. 28 bigalyts Feb 5th, 2013 at 1:47 am

    Woody you are so,so, so right. Do you know what else falls in the exact same category? People will be laughing and Dr s. and all the aftermarket Unprofessional, Unlicensed idiots will have these tactics to remove Tatoo’s. When then get in the way of being a Professional or you are not dating that Person anymore or. or, or! Tatoo’s what a waiste.

  29. 29 RUB Feb 5th, 2013 at 3:02 am

    do the exhaust tips spin ? That would put this ” bike ” over the top

  30. 30 baddad Feb 5th, 2013 at 4:57 am

    Very ugly bike from the creators of Painttles Bike.

  31. 31 Red Feb 5th, 2013 at 8:07 am

    Looks like Arlen Ness and Jessie James had a baby.

  32. 32 Enforcer Feb 5th, 2013 at 9:22 am

    Another cookie cutter bagger with a ridiculous front wheel…yawn…

  33. 33 Chaos Cycle Feb 5th, 2013 at 11:15 am

    I get it rodent you dont like the bike and thats cool, my point you missed is these kinds of parts will more than likely wind up being factory equipment. I didnt state thunder bike invented any of these parts. God knows ive relied on radial brakes slowing me down on the track for ever. Its the application of these parts on a harley. These kind of parts have been around for years. Shame on harley for using the same 1980’s technology and charging boatloads for it. As for its looks i dont put any bodies bikes down. Some body out there put their heart into this bike and as a person who also does this for a living i know there will always be haters. On a side note you relize this company just won the world championship of bike building, so while its not your taste dont doubt they know what they are doing.

  34. 34 Yank Feb 5th, 2013 at 11:40 am

    I honestly like the bike. I like the lines of the bags and rear fender and the front fairing. I like how the front and rear rim match something most bangers don’t do. Not a big fan of the large front wheel but this looks proportional enough to pull it off. The front forks are air suspension so it’s obvious that ride height will have more clearance.

  35. 35 dudeareno Feb 5th, 2013 at 12:43 pm

    Ugly Ass Scooter.Looks like another Ness Mess.Baby Shit Yellow? Stupid is Stupid Does.Does anyone ride bikes anymore?WTF?

  36. 36 smithncustom Feb 5th, 2013 at 3:05 pm

    “Some body out there put their heart into this bike” ….. this bike has no soul. it was built for one reason—-$

  37. 37 Dave Smith Feb 5th, 2013 at 3:49 pm

    I think it’s ugly! If they would just put bigger wheel on the front, it would transform it into decent looking machine.

  38. 38 GuitarSlinger Feb 5th, 2013 at 5:03 pm

    So ……. since when did ‘ Donk ‘ become ‘ In ‘ with Custom Bike builders ( especially the over sized rims – rubber band tire thing ) And what will it take to make it Passe ‘ ? Cause if we don’t ( make the Donk influence passe’ soon ) the next thing the custom builders will be doing is raising their bikes to have 12″ or more of ground clearance 😉

  39. 39 Blackmax Feb 5th, 2013 at 6:31 pm

    It’s nice for what it is ….
    just look in any of the many “Bagger” magazines / sites & you’ll see a lot of bikes that look very similar. Just like the Fat tire craze with choppers, how far are you willing to go?
    Is 30 inch it or is there something else just beyound the horizon?
    Personally, big skinny front ires on a bagger is not for me, but if somebody out there wants to push the envelope have at it… just don;t crash into me !!!

    (And I like the Victory Cross country so the way this looks doesn’t bother me for THAT reason)

  40. 40 Larry R Feb 5th, 2013 at 6:38 pm

    Yeah! A dirt bike bagger! Yeah that’s the ticket GuitarSlinger. Hey, you heard it first here!

  41. 41 Johnny Wolf Feb 5th, 2013 at 10:08 pm

    “Only guys in the industry used to comment here.”

    Yeah, they come here and wag each others wieners, then talk shit behind their backs.

    How does that line go…???

    You shake my hand, while you’re pissing on my leg.

    Can’t wait till this fad ends a fiery death just like the fat tire, tinker toy, long fork bikes did. Notice how I didn’t refer to them as choppers….

  42. 42 RUB Feb 7th, 2013 at 3:46 am

    the wolfman speaks the truth

  43. 43 chiptastic Feb 15th, 2013 at 7:01 am
