Senior Designer Michael Bates led the Kuryakyn build team, working closely with the Buffalo Chip to give the stock 2015 Road Glide a complete overhaul. Close to 40 Kuryakyn parts are incorporated into the overall design, including nearly the entire collection of Tri-Line accessories for Road Glides, new satin black Teardrop Mirrors, Kinetic Grips and foot controls, L.E.D. Turn Signal Conversions and Saddlebag Extensions, and much more. A number of outside brands also stepped up to support the Rock, Rumble & Rebellion project, including
Bahn™, Jim Nasi Customs, Mustang® Seats, Performance Machine®, Progressive® Suspension, Roland Sands Design®, and Xtreme Machine®.
The horsepower is supplied courtesy of Kuryakyn’s Performance Division, Crusher. TC-24D Cams, Easy Install Adjustable Pushrods, High-Performance Lifters, plus the all-new Maverick Pro Air Cleaner and Crusader 4” Slip-Ons put approximately 93 horsepower at the rear wheel, with 113 ft/lbs of torque. The Buffalo Chip 35th anniversary Road Glide is a true performance bagger designed to rip up the streets in style.
“The response we received throughout Bike Week was remarkable,” said Kuryakyn President Holger Mohr. “We’re incredibly honored Rod and the Buffalo Chip team presented Kuryakyn with the opportunity to commemorate their legacy through a custom bike build. People love both the bike and guitar. I think our product development and design team really shocked the industry with this project, proving there’s much more to Kuryakyn than just chrome.”
Kuryakyn and the Buffalo Chip are also excited to announce a media partnership with Baggers magazine of the Bonnier media group. The 35th anniversary Rock, Rumble & Rebellion Road Glide will be featured in the August issue of Baggers, which will be on newsstands during the annual August rally in the Black Hills.
