New Limited Edition Speed Glide By Trask Performance

traskspeedglide1traskspeedglide2 traskspeedglide3traskspeedglide4traskspeedglide5There will be a total of 16 Speed Glides manufactured in 4 unique color combinations: Vivid Black on Black (4), Grabber Red (4), Championship White (4) and Leguna Seca Blue (4) Each limited edition SPEED GLIDE comes with a Trask Certificate of Authenticity and a number matching verification medallion. From concept to completion Nick Trask’s goal was to create a minimalistic and aggressive tourer keeping its road qualities but that would stand the test of time and offer largely improved overall performance.

traskspeedglide6traskspeedglide7In true limited addition style, Trask added a power house to each bike that is being built. The new 2013 comes standard with the 103″ Twin Cam, which they have taken a step farther with new Cams and Trask limited edition turbo system. This combination produces 156HP and 166TQ. Aesthetically, The Speed Glide features many well designed custom parts and well thought details. Among them, Trask included their proprietary parts: Trask V-Line Handlebars and pegs, floorboards, Bag Latches, Chin Spoiler, etc. More info by contacting Nick Trask at Trask Performance at 623-879-8488.

    I think it’s pretty good. How much?

    im waiting for when they ditch the one “big” back wheel and turn them into motorized “Big Wheels” with two go cart tires in the back… the look was cool when your 6….

    Like the overall stance and details.

    Are all these cartoonish extreme baggers made to tour or to impress your neighbor and win plastic “gold” trophies in bike shows?

    It’s actually painful for me to look at these big wheels. I look at all the hard, high-quality work that went into building this bike and wonder why it had to look like that at the end.

    And when I think that a couple of magazines were created to showcase this big wheel fad, I wonder about the IQ of some publishers.

    Harley attracting younger riders and the big wave of baby boomers getting close to the age when they will abandon motorcycling are 2 reasons why the number of bagger sales is going to stall, then go down starting in the next 3 to 5 years. Let’s see what happens to all these bagger customizers. If future would be a motorcycle, it would look more like a Sportster.

    @Bruce-I respectfully disagree. The future will always be the bagger. Sportsters and other similar bikes almost always end up relegated as a 2nd bike around town or traded in on a cruiser and/or tourer. Eventually as the riders age it’s always the same-long distance comfort, passenger seating, “a little something against the wind” etc. starts looking pretty good. These big wheels aren’t going to change that. “Normal” touring bikes will always be the future ☺

    Josh, stop wondering just pick any double digit number and you’ll be close!

    Lose the oversized front wheel, kick the rake back and I’m in. Probably a blast to ride with those HP and torque numbers.

    big wheel baggers have replaced the chopper for the newest bandwagon ride ,either get over it ,get with it or get the hell off your soap box.Yes its the new fad ,and it makes a ton of money and everyone is doing it ,even folks like paugcho .Serisously ,not everything is a stripped down shovel head dripping with rust ridden a trillion miles a year .And if you think they are just for show you obviously havent ridden one .Does it have to be a hate fest for a big wheel bagger everytime one gets posted .Cyril brings the bikes that are making the news and the noise .They happen to be a lot of big wheeled baggers lately and there is nothing wrong with it .

    end of rant

    ” Certificate of Authenticity ” now that’s what I’ve been missin .

    I’m with Iron Hourse on this one , loose the goofy big wheel and this bike is bad ass .

    While the big wheel look may not be my or your taste, Nick and his crew are doing their thing. His place is one of the best in the southwest when it comes to performance. Ironically his shop is between Nasi’s and Bourgets. All three within a half mile of each other and all 3 busy.

  14. 14 Boomer May 2nd, 2013 at 7:14 am

    Would love to ride it with those hp/tq numbers. On the big front wheel fad; it isn’t for me personally but the custom bike world is always evolving. Maybe I’ll like the next big evolution better… maybe not. Maybe big fenders will be the next fad. It would make riding in the rain better. 😉

    nick and james and the rest of the crew do quality work and make quality power..put that together with the hot trend and a limited build you get a hot product that will sell..kudo’s to you guys..rock on

  16. 16 Doc Robinson May 2nd, 2013 at 8:27 am

    I’d like to know the trail figure.

  17. 17 The Supreme Team May 2nd, 2013 at 9:19 am

    I agree with HK….these guys are keeping the industry alive, far and beyond the panheads that are being “duct taped” to keep on the road. You’re reading a motorcycle industry blog…letting you know what’s going on around town, and where money is being spent.

    You guys pick this thing apart, but if Jesse were building it, you guys would be bowing down in your normal fashion, pretending you knew Jesse back when he was in diapers and got his first English wheel for Christmas.

    If we held this industry together based on the negativity in opinions on this blog, Cyril would be on a street corner playing harmonica and holding a tin cup waiting for nickels.
    Embrace the difference….I wouldn’t own a Mopar, but they sure are pretty to look at and drive.

    Keep up the good work Nick…YOU and the lot of the “up and coming” bagger builders are the ONLY chance this industry has to reinvent itself again after the last debacle of “master builders” ran it into the ground.

    I absolutely love the idea of a 150 horse cruiser/tour. And if some people are still digging the big wheel fad that’s cool for them. But that’s not building a bike to stand the test of time, it’s already dated. I love that bike. I’d love it more with a 21″ on the front.

  19. 19 roadrash May 6th, 2013 at 3:20 pm

    Hey Mike Infanzone…. so what your saying ironically is hes in the middle of MOE AND CURLEY yuk yuk yuk….

  20. 20 Pual May 6th, 2013 at 4:44 pm

    Big wheel baggers well if you do any looking around the 26″ and 30″ wheel and tire combo are not DOT approved for street use, so take your high dollar wheel and tire combo ride it on the street and crash and see who pays out “NO ONE” it’s all looks and if these builders are not covering their butts well they will be gone like the wide tire choppers and a lot faster!

  21. 21 Jeffrey Jun 5th, 2013 at 2:16 pm

    Have had 4 bikes done by Nick, Jeremy, Ron @ Trask. One being a Turbo, the only thing that sucks is that turbo bike only got 121 hp and 124 torque. That was about 6 yrs ago. These guys have come along way since 10 yrs ago when I met them. I have 41K miles on my 103ci 2010 roadglide that these guys built up for me. Only 100hp but bad axx bike.

    Why take your bike to a Harley dealer and get some half axxed mechanic that doesn’t know you OR care about you when you can take it to a quality “Pro Shop” for about the same price???

    You can see my 2010 here

  22. 22 Terence Tory Jun 5th, 2013 at 3:15 pm

    And the bike industry wonders why young guys ride CB350 Honda café racers and avoid pimped-up exercises in excess and stupidity.Discerning and experienced views on motorcycle engineering standards is not “haters”.
