The 2014 Harley-Davidson touring models surprised many aftermarket vendors and customizers by the number of modifications made by the factory versus previous model-year. Along with the introduction of the first European-manufactured and TÜV-approved 30-Inch front wheel in 2013, the Rick‘s Motorcycles team has developed a number of innovative and Europe homologated system components for 21 to 30″ wheels equipped 2014 Baggers, all of which should satisfy the demands of most riders wishing to ride such modified tourers. Riding stability and high-speed performance are as much an issue as safety, reliability and cool look. Considering these facts, many Harley-Davidson dealers – at least in Europe – (and of course independent dealers) already service Rick’s modified Harley baggers
Rick‘s Front Fender is available in size 30/26/23” in short or long cut version for all 2014 touring models. Fits as close as possible to the tire for long safe riding in different weather and road conditions. It is made of steel as a safety and stability issue because a strong front fender acts as a fork stabilizer for optimum parallelism of the down tubes.
Rick’s Rear Bodywork offers a smooth stretched look in an heavy-duty combo of stretched rear fender with bags (4” down, 1.5” back.) Cut-outs allow the mounting of a pair of Harley genuine CVO taillights. The 2014 model-year “Rick Rod“ touring bags accept the stock HD latches, thus the keys. Factory mounting points and hardware are retained for easy and for minimum time of installation.
Rick’s 13’’ Brake Disc Conversion Kit offers not only a better visual match to the big wheels but foremost an additional braking surface and better heat distribution resulting in faster stopping. Developed to fit Rick‘s 21, 23 and 26′ TÜV approved diameter wheels (as well as other manufacturers wheels), the Rick‘s Design wheels are now also available in bi-color as shown.
Rick’s Stainless Steel Handlebar is also TÜV approved, offered in several versions and different heights, including one accommodating Harley factory clamps,. Although design features 90-degree bends this handlebar model is conceived for internal wiring. You can use either stock or aftermarket controls and grips.
Rick‘s Touring 7-Degree Rake Triple-Tree for 21, 23 and 26’’ front wheel. For those who don’t know, the larger diameter of these wheels creates 2 to 4” extended front forks, resulting in a higher center of gravity and a heavy feeling in the bike rear end, especially when the bags are loaded. Rick‘s touring 7° triple-tree moves the front wheel forward, achieving the stock height while still keeping the stock forks original length. With this geometry, you stay as close as possible to the factory riding characteristics. This 7-degree triple tree is a bolt-on part sold with all necessary mounting hardware, available for the Harley Road King and all Electra-Glide and Street-Glide models.
