Michael Woolaway builds an American touring bike to race at Laguna Seca.

Kraus Motor Co was trusted for mounting race-quality wheels, brakes, and suspension to the Road Glide. A Kraus front end with proprietary Öhlins suspension and 30mm cartridge was installed, maintaining the stock neck angle but increasing ride height by 2.25 inches. A swingarm was ordered from Alloy Art and machined to increase clearance and ride height before welding on a custom adjustable mounting point for the Öhlins HD 044 rear shock and installing BellissiMoto oversuspension to further stabilize the rear. Brembo GP4-RX radial calipers were paired with Braketech 320mm discs and a Galespeed front master cylinder for precise and consistent braking. A set of 17-inch Marchesini wheels were adapted to fit and wrapped in Dunlop GP-A Pro tires. The bike now sits with 7.5 inches of ground clearance.
