True Blue Harley-Davidson Street Glide

Bluey from the Diggers Military Motorcycle Club is keeping the memory of his time in the Army alive.

I’M A member of the Diggers Military Motorcycle Club. We’re ex-serving and current serving military guys. It’s a big club in Australia. We’ve got nine chapters up and down the East Coast of Australia from Queensland down through to one in Adelaide. 

This motorcycle started out as a standard Harley-Davidson Street Glide, a 103 (cubic inch). I’ve had a Harley Stage 3 kit fitted because the motor crapped out one time. It now has the bigger bore (110 cubic inch), a set of SE585 cams, and a Screamin’ Eagle high volume oil pump and billet plate. It’s built for torque and cruising.

The high performance Freedom Exhaust is pretty good, and the Mustang seat is a really good seat.

Kenny at Skin by Finn did the paint work for me. It’s a military theme because I’ve done 20 years in the Army. I joined in 1976 just after Vietnam, and the artwork takes me through that era on the back of the bike, to the front of the bike where I left with a bit more modern equipment.

On the top of the saddlebags, on one side, it’s names of the guys who I actually served with who passed away while I was serving, both here and overseas, just keep their memory alive. And on the other side is the Ode of Remembrance itself. 

Finally, I rely on Captain at Captain’s Performance in Coffs Harbour for all the work on my bike. Thanks, mate.
