The Sturgis Buffalo Chip 35th Anniversary Road Glide

The Sturgis Buffalo Chip 35th Anniversary Road Glide

Right from the start we knew we needed to design the Sturgis Buffalo Chip 35th Anniversary Road Glide to be a rideable, well-rounded custom bagger built to perform every bit as good as it looks. With the performance-packed products offered through our Performance Division, Crusher, the task was pretty simple. The resulting potent performance package not only fit the overall appearance, but also transformed this 2015 Road Glide into a true performance bagger that flat-out rips!

Crusher offers a full line of slip-on mufflers, full exhaust systems, air cleaners, cams and much more for Harley-Davidson models. We wanted to use their all-new Maverick Pro Air Cleaner and Crusader 4” Slip-Ons, paired up with True Dual Head Pipes, TC-24D Cams, Easy Install Adjustable Pushrods and High Performance Hydraulic Lifters – all dialed in with the powerful TTS Mastertune.

A baseline Dyno run on the stock 2015 Road Glide resulted in 63.27 hp with 82.46 ft/lbs of torque. After the performance components were installed, we took the Road Glide back to Those Dyno Guys in Zimmerman, MN, for some fine-tuning. Matt and the crew at TDG were able to achieve some pretty impressive gains, with final Dyno run results noting approximately 93 horsepower at the rear wheel, with 113 ft/lbs of torque – an increase of almost 30hp and 40 ft/lbs!

Baseline Dyno run had the Road Glide hovering around 63hp and 82 ft/lbs of torque. After the performance upgrade we saw an increase of nearly 30hp and 40 ft/lbs!

Here’s a closer look at Crusher’s Level 4 Performance Package that supplied the extra ponies for the Rock, Rumble & Rebellion Road Glide. For more information on all of Crusher’s Performance Level Upgrades for Harley-Davidson models, visit www.crusherperformance.com/levels.

Crusher Maverick Pro Air Cleaner
The Maverick Pro Air Cleaner from Crusher puts a modern twist on the traditional teardrop-styled air cleaner. The forged and machined aluminum cover with slotted openings provides an aggressive appearance and abundant airflow to the include lifetime-warrantied K&N high-flow filter element. The slender design doesn’t interfere with legroom, and integrated crankcase breathers eliminate the need for external hoses or fittings for a clean, tight appearance.

Crusher Crusader 4″ Slip-On Mufflers
Crusader mufflers feature Crusher’s all-new shallow-cut louvered baffle design that produces less turbulence in the 4-inch diameter muffler bodies. The result is longer life, powerful exhaust tones at wide-open throttle that settle into a deep note at cruising speeds, and solid gains throughout the powerband. The tips feature styling unlike anything on the market, with detailed Crusher “C” logos laser-etched above the openings and a ring of laser-cut accents amplified by the contrasting finish of the brushed stainless insert and bands.
