NCHD Custom Garage | 2018 Street Glide Special | Size Meets the Sound

Alright. Hands down. This is probably THE bike many of you would call your Dream Bike. Stock, the 2018 FLHXS Street Glide Special has it all: blacked out accents, the beefy Milwaukee-Eight 107 engine, black Talon wheels, the great BOOM! Audio Infotainment system, and much more.

Then our customer came in, took two of those items, and cranked the volume up to eleven. We mean that: this bike is ALL about sound.

When you consider what bikes get added to our Custom Garage, a lot of the time it begins with the engine. A Stage 4 alone will make you part of the club. And this customer is no exception. He had us add the Screamin' Eagle 114 engine in an epic Stage 4 upgrade.

Of course, Stage 4 isn't complete without pipes. The louder the better. We'll get to that in a sec.

First, let's dive into the OTHER sound: the stereo. Juiced up with a Stage 2 audio upgrade using the Rockford Fosgate amp, we swapped out the stock fairing speakers with Rockford Fosgate ones and added a pair of Fosgate speakers in the bags as well.

Alright, now for the pipes. The blacked-out S&S slip-ons look absolutely phenomenal, from no matter what angle you look at 'em.
