Narrow & Wide Glide Tracker Front Fork Brace

2010 Product Highlight
Getting back to the basics is what it’s all about this year, simplification in the name of function. That’s what our Fork brace accomplishes, it gets rid of your front fender without losing the integrity of the suspension. Our fork brace does a fantastic job of eliminating fork twist and increases rigidity from stock; all the while looking pretty damn good. Available in shiny ass chrome and Black powder coat finish with a riveted brass antique RSD logo. Scotch Brite the chrome for a fantastic brushed nickel look.

We start with our Contrast Cut process then hand polish the exposed cut away areas to a high gloss finish. Platinum Cut takes your bike to the next tier of fine detail.

Junk Yard Dog


This 2003 H-D Softail was unearthed a few years ago by Roland and the RSD team at a local junkyard. It had been stolen, crashed and totaled. There was no kickstand, the tank and primary were scratched, controls were shot and the bars were loose. It was on its way to the scrap bin, for sure.

The bike was then stripped down and cleaned up. The idea behind this bike was to build it up as cheaply as possible, mainly utilizing original equipment supplemented by a number of parts that were already lying around the shop. A few items were fabbed, but the point of this build was to show people that they can have a cool bike that's still way ridable. With the cool, cheap junkyard dog groomed, we affectionately named it Dusty.
