Street Rod Snow Bike Builds | Harley-Davidson


Here’s the track kit. What do you think? My name’s Aaron Guardado. This is my brother, Shaun. We’re with SMCO in Long Beach, California. And Harley gave us these
new Street Rod 750s to build out and take
them to Winter X Games. We race flat track. We do a lot of different
disciplines with them on dirt, and I think we’ve got
somewhat of a challenge in front of us to, you know, get them fully kitted to ride on the snow. But we’re gonna adapt
the snow kits to them and send them to Winter X Games. – The snow kits weren’t
made for these bikes. They were made for dirt
bikes, motocross bikes. The swing arm and the track placement and all that’s gonna differ. And then, dirt bikes,
typically, have mono shocks, single shock down the center, and that’s where the rear track ties into. So we’re gonna have to
figure out something to tie in to that section. – [Aaron] I’m making the spacers, now, to put the track on and
kind of keep that in mind. I’m gonna make some struts for the track to,
basically, stay in one spot and get the front ski on and figure out the stance of the bike. It probably took hours, multiple hours, to figure out what to do. – [Shaun] Yeah, where we can make up– – [Aaron] How many options, like oh, what about this,
oh, what about that? We got a lot of the adapting done early so we could get the ski
on, get the track on, align the chain. Now it’s just the little parts, all the little details,
getting things mounted up. – [Shaun] We got inspired
at the last second and decided to fabricate
handles for the riders to have something for them to hold onto, and I think it flows really
nicely with the bike. And that’s it. That’s the last piece. Bike’s done. – [Aaron] Secure, it looks complete. And we’re super happy to see it done. I know it’s going to look
nice, it’s going to work well. I think we’re about ready to hit the snow. (motor revving)
