Barnes Bike Show Build-off: Victoria

The 2019 Vancouver Motorcycle show is one of the most anticipated events for Motorsport enthusiasts in Western Canada with tens of thousands of people attending the show each year. With the Barnes Harley-Davidson® group being the top Harley-Davidson® Dealer group in Canada, they love to put on an outstanding show with each of their stores creating custom bikes to wow the audience.


This year, Barnes Harley-Davidson® Victoria decided to focus on performance with a fully customized 2019 Road Glide® Special (FLTRXS). By keeping the the look clean and polished and turning the performance dials up to eleven, the Victoria build packs a punch while keeping that classic and sophisticated Road Glide® look.

We’ve got to say it here, this bike has it all. With a classic Vivid Black paint set, this stunning Road Glide® Special features a completely redone suspension with a KRT Kraus/Ohlins inverted front end with gold stanchions as well as Ohlins 13.2″ remote reservoir adjustable shocks in the rear increasing ride-ability, comfort, and overall performance.

The folks at Barnes Harley-Davidson® Victoria couldn’t just stop at improving the suspension, the build team also decided to throw in a full Stage 1 Kit with S&S Air 1 Air Cleaner Kit, a full S&S El Dorado True Dual exhaust system and a Pro Street Tuner.


Leaving the looks stock would have been a tragedy, so they included Chizeled Lo Bars with RSD Black Ops Traction Grips and Profile Satin Mirrors. Riot floorboards were also installed along with Joker Machine Serrated brake pedal and a RSD Traction shift peg and passenger pegs.


To complete the package, this beautiful beast was finished off with a Harley Custom wrapped fender, black caliper inserts, a Harley spoiler kit, and Layback LED smoked tail lamp adding a little more flair to the oh-so-classy Road Glide® look. For the cherry on top, a BMC/Corbin seat was added to make those long rides even better.

With all that performance and style packed into one bike, how could you not fall in love.
