Thunderbike Constructors, known as European experts in Harley-Davidson craftsmanship, consistently deliver creations that exude quality and attention to detail, making them highly coveted by enthusiasts. Concurrently, the Touring genre is enjoying a resurgence in popularity, thanks in part to events like the MotoAmerica King of the Bagger competition, which has contributed to a renewed fascination with substantial motorcycles.


While Thunderbike hasn't veered into a more aggressive "Racing" direction with their customized Harley-Davidson CVO Street Glide 117, the result is still a powerhouse, encapsulating the essence of Wheel Power. They've chosen a blend of classic Touring components, coupled with an 1980s-inspired paint finish that aligns harmoniously with the style introduced by the Milwaukee brand in its recent series models.


This Wheel Power creation belongs to the CVO lineup, a collection characterized by limited and exclusive production runs. It boasts the largest engine currently offered by Harley-Davidson, the 117-cubic-inch Milwaukee Eight generating 105 horsepower and a substantial 166 Nm of torque at 3500 rpm. The motorcycle is finished with a premium, high-quality paint job in Smokey Grey & Black Hole.

To enhance its aesthetics and performance, Thunderbike has replaced the original 19-inch front wheel with a massive 26-inch wheel from their Daytona series. A specialized kit enables the use of 340 mm floating discs from Thunderbike's Vegas series for improved braking performance. The one-piece custom wheel matches the CVO's premium paint scheme, with a sleek black powder-coated finish. Additionally, the GFK front fender has undergone repainting, and the triple clamp kit is expertly crafted from black anodized aluminum. This results in a 150 mm wheelbase extension, with the wheel itself measuring 175 mm.


To ensure optimal traction and comfort during long-distance journeys, a Metzeler ME888 tire, tailored for touring and extended riding, has been fitted in its largest variant.
