See clearly! A set of MetalSport clear wheels with a 360 Brake really clean up the bike.
Charles Peterson of North Carolina, had never been a big fan of bikes, that is until while looking for something to do with his spare time he picked up an '08 Street Glide and decided to dress it up to his liking. Like most of us, when Charles was a kid he rode dirt bikes, but that was about the extent of his motorcycling experiences. So with that being said, it's pretty impressive that he put together such a stunning bike his first time around.
Charles started his project on December 12, so it could be said he was making himself his own Christmas present. With big dreams of gleaming chrome, dripping kandy paint, and an audio/video explosion rolling down the street, Charles started stripping the bike completely down to the frame. Once the engine was out the heads and barrels were sent to Diamond Heads in Las Vegas for the "jeweled" look. To help the motor sparkle the frame was sent to Concorde Chrome to get dipped. While the frame and engine were getting bling'd out, Charles started shopping for parts.
In fact, Charles was spending so much "alone" time with his bike, his wife Tammy dubbed it his "mistress".

Over the course of the next six months, Charles had many a late night trysts assembling and tweaking his Street Glide in hopes of having it together in time for the Easy Riders Show that was coming up. In fact Charles was spending so much "alone" time with his bike, his wife Tammy dubbed it his "mistress".
Like they say, "time flies when you're having fun" and the show came up quicker than Charles expected. Rolling into the show, still doing some last second work, Charles knew he had a special bike. A lot of people asked him who built the bike. Not wanting to say "me," Charles came up with the name Holly's Customs. Holly is his nickname, although he wouldn't explain how he got it. Charles' bike won the People's Choice First place award for modified stock. Charles knew that all the hard work, late nights, and a frustrated wife was worth it. But like any great champion he didn't stop there. There were more shows to go to and this time he wouldn't have to work on the bike until the last minute. Charles took the bike to the Daytona Rats Hole Custom Bike Show, where it won in the custom Harley division. Still wanting to add another championship belt to his waist, Charles took the bike to the National Roundup in Atlanta, where it won him another First place. He also took it to a few local shows in North Carolina where he added to his number of victories. Not bad for a first timer.
Charles' Street Glide shows that not only can someone be very successful their first time changing up the look of a bike, but he shows that a man can get away with having a mistress-as long as the mistress is in the garage when night comes.
