Death Race

S

cott Capalbo is one of those East Coast guys that moved to the Phoenix area to enjoy the year-round riding. He misses his buddies, he misses a good slice of pizza, but he will never miss the snow. When you grow up on the East Coast, you ride your bike for six months out of the year and then tear it down and work on it for the other six months. When you live in Mesa, AZ, you want as little downtime as possible. Scott was able to transform his Bagger from mild to wild in 2.5 months. Originally, Scott was going for a mild customization. He purchased his 2000 Electra Glide used. The original owner had taken great care

of the bike. Scott was all set to go with a 21" wheel until the devils on his shoulder -Chris Clauser and Doug Eggleston- convinced him to go with a 23". By increasing the front wheel size the entire scope of the project was increased. Luckily for Scott, he has some great contacts for Bagger parts. Evil Twin rebuilt the motor. The stock 88" Twin Cam was upgraded to a 103". A 42mm Mikuni carburetor delivers the fuel while a Ness Big Sucker makes sure the big engine can breathe. Rinehart exhaust evacuates the gasses. Fast Track raked the frame and increased the neck rake to 45º to accommodate the 23" front wheel. Scott and Dave,

from Fast Track, built the handlebars that sit on Fast Track risers and feature Avon grips. Jim Michaud, from Custom Paint and Body, gave Scott a crash course in working with fiberglass and ABS. Jim also supplied the fenders and saddlebags. Scott took what he learned from Jim and stretched the fairing by two inches. He raised the top of the fairing to match the rear fender and made air ducts which house the turn signals. Scott fabricated the stretched gas tank himself. If you ever run into Scott, ask him about the first tank that almost blew him up. Scott and Chris fabricated the bag lids using foam to get the shape and then laid fiberglass over the foam.

Alan at Elite Automotive Finishes handled all of the body work and applied the gunmetal base coat. Matt from Hypnotic Airbrushing is responsible for the wild tattoo graphics. The bike was finished and running 30 minutes before the Baddest Bagger contest, where Scott won the Publisher's Choice for Baddest Bagger in Arizona. It's rare for a 2000 Bagger to win a major award, especially since Scott is not a full-time builder. Scott gives credit to Paul Yaffe, John Shope and Nick Trask for setting the bar so high with their custom Baggers.

he people voted and Chandler Harley-Davidson's 2011 Street Glide, Hollywood, is the Baddest Bagger in Arizona. Greg Le Blanc was the project manager and the goal was to build a show-winning Bagger without losing the bike's ride-ability. Greg also wanted to show the level of customization that Chandler Harley is capable of. In the world of competitive Bagger customizing that is Phoenix AZ's big scene, Chandler H-D has thrown their hat in the ring and they want everybody to know that they are serious contenders. At the heart of Hollywood is a 120" Screamin' Eagle High Performance motor. A Power Commander 5 manages the fuel and a Performance Machine air cleaner lets the big motor breathe. A 58mm throttle body ensures plenty of fuel consumption and high-

For on-the-fly shifting, a Dynojet Quick Shifter Kit allows for clutch-less shifting at full throttle. The front end has been upgraded with Paul Yaffe Yafterburner tubes and Arlen Ness Hot Legs. For on-the-fly suspension adjustment, a set of Legend Air Suspensions shocks were installed. A 21" Performance Machine Roulette chrome wheel with a PM Gatlin rotor ride up front.

the back. Ten inch Bagger Nation Monkey Bars ride on stock risers and feature PM XL chrome grips and Yaffe Race Levers. The stock fairing has been upgraded with a Harley Splitter 7" smoked windshield. The six-gallon stretched gas tank is from Bagger Nation, as is the DEI front fender and Chupa rear fender. The stretched saddlebags with Pro-One latches are from Arlen Ness. LePera made the comfortable two-up seat. The floorboards are Arlen Ness chrome Edge Cut units and the Harley billet shifter features

a Ness Edge Cut shift peg. The tangerine and black tribal paint scheme was applied by Matt Andrews of Hypnotic Air. The big motor was tuned by Matt Bluett. Herman Cazeres and Greg Le Blanc handled all of the assembly work. It was a big win for a Harley dealer's Bagger to win Baddest Bagger in Arizona. It impresses me when a Harley dealer embraces the best that the aftermarket and Harley have to offer and ends up with a great custom Bagger.
