Paul Yaffe’s Bagger Nation Releases New Monkey Sport Bar for All Harley Models

Bagger Nation's Monkey Sport Bar

Bagger Nation Combines Classic Style of OEM Monkey Bar with Signature Bent Uprights for Low Slung Look with Loads of Attitude and Comfort

Paul Yaffe’s Bagger Nation, the custom shop known for providing the Harley-Davidson aftermarket with trend-setting designs of the highest quality, is proud to unveil the new Monkey Sport Bar for 1986–2017 H-D touring models.

“When it comes to all of our parts and accessories, we blur the line between function and aesthetics until there is no line,” says Paul Yaffe, “and our new Monkey Sport Bar is no exception—yes, it looks sharp, but it has all the comfort and utility our OEM Monkey Bars are famous for.”

Designed by a rider, not just for looks but for facility, the new Monkey Sport Bar has you covered with: (1) Width: Yaffe Monkey bars are narrower because they utilize a more labor-intensive process when assembling grip post areas—swedging is cheaper but adds 2” to each side of the bar; (2) Natural Grip Angle: Yaffe Monkey bars don’t force hands or wrists into uncomfortable positions; they are engineered to provide natural, relaxed grip angles—non-riders wouldn’t think of this; (3) Adjustability: Yaffe Monkey bars allow maximum rotation for hand control positioning—you can put ’em where you want ’em; (4) Pull Back: with their exclusive arched pull-back design, Yaffe Monkey Sport Bars provide 9” of pull back if you want it (while still ensuring optimum back comfort); because of patent protection, no other company can curve uprights forward when viewed in profile; only Bagger Nation can provide that look for you.

The new Bagger Nation Monkey Sport Bar is a direct bolt-on replacement part with NO modifications needed. Bagger Nation also offers a complete line of cables, bushings, Super Clamps, wiring and complete install instructions. Available in gloss black powder coat or brilliant chrome plating, you won’t find a better (or better-looking!) low-slung bar for Road Glides and Road Kings.

Official 2017 Daytona Bike Week Build: Paul Yaffe’s Bagger Nation

Official Daytona Bike Build 2017 Paul Yaffe Super Stretch Saddlebags and Chupa Rear Fender

The rear of the 2010 Harley Ultra in the midst of its transformation sees the addition of Bagger Nation Super Stretch Saddlebags and a Chupa Rear Fender.

If you haven’t heard by now, American Iron is once again getting the pleasure of putting together the puzzle that will be the 2017 Official Daytona Bike Week Motorcycle. This bike is being raffled off as a fund raiser conducted by the Daytona Beach Community Foundation “with proceeds going back into the management and betterment of each bike week event.”

The 2010 Harley Ultra that is serving as the 2017 Official Bike Week Motorcycle has been undergoing an incredible transformation thanks to the hard-working crew at Street Stuff Cycle. Last week, the family-owned shop out of Norwich, CT., even got some love on local TV station News 8 WTNH featuring the Ultra they’ve been working on for us. (Check out the Connecticut motorcycle shop building custom bike for Daytona video here). Couldn’t have happened to a more deserving bunch.

The project is a true group effort. The list of sponsors who have stepped up to make it happen is long. So far we’ve talked about the contributions of both Arlen Ness Enterprises and Cobra USA. Next on our list is Paul Yaffe’s Bagger Nation.

Bagger Nation has been at the forefront of customizing big bikes for a long-time running. In fact, Paul Yaffe is celebrating 25 years of building custom bikes this weekend with a big birthday bash at Morongo Casino Resort in Cabazon, CA. At the gathering Yaffe will have 15 of his most memorable creations on display including both of the bikes he did for Discovery Channel’s “Biker Build-Off” Phantom and Suzy-Q, the Copper Chopper, Prodigy, and the Sailor Jerry Chopper that’s going to be given away at the party.

“It all started with a love of motorcycles and a curiosity and desire to see what could be made of them,” said Yaffe in a press release promoting his 25th celebration. “I never would have guessed, when I first started experimenting in the mid-eighties, that it would lead to where we are today.”

Bagger Nation Stretched Smooth Swooth Side Covers

The rear end conversion of the 2017 Official Daytona Bike Week Motorcycle includes a set of Bagger Nation Stretched Smooth Swoop Side Covers.

For the 2017 Official Bike Week build, the stock Ultra front fender was swapped out for a 23” Wide Classic Stretched Fender from Bagger Nation. The rear looks dramatically different now. We mean that in a good way. It’s been totally revamped with a set of Yaffe’s Super Stretch Saddlebags, a Chupa Rear Fender, Stretched Smooth Swoop Side Covers and a Chop Chop Ultra Slim Tour Pack. The Chop Chop Ultra Slim Tour Pack is much slimmer and sportier than Harley’s Tour Pak, a big reason we’ve been seeing them at just about every bike show as they’ve been riding a wave of popularity. Seeing how Yaffe’s Slim Tour Pack switched up the lines of the Ultra, it only made sense to swap out the stock tank for one of Bagger Nation’s stretched steel Razorback Gas Tanks, too. Rounding out the sweet package is a Sorrento Seat made specifically to complement the stretched Razorback tank.

This year’s Official Daytona Bike Week Motorcycle is really taking shape. Somebody’s going to be stoked to win this bike. It could be you. Grab you a ticket before they’re all gone at OfficialBikeWeek.com.

Shown to the public for the first time at this year’s Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, Paul Yaffe’s Bagger Nation is proud to announce the official launch of the new Cult Forty-Five performance pipes. Designed for those who demand ultra-premium products with an unapologetic edge, the Cult Forty-Five exhaust combines Paul Yaffe’s radical design aesthetic with the 35-year track record of Vance and Hines performance.

Each system consists of 4-inch mufflers with 4.5-inch stepped out tips and a 2.5-inch louvered core with removable fiberglass wrap.

Cult Forty-Five Performance Pipes come in chrome or black and you can choose from 4 radical tip designs to compliment your personal aesthetic vision. Of course, the pipes are made right here in the U.S.A.

Next, for those wanting to take it to the next level, Paul Yaffe’s Bagger Nation offers their radical Cult Forty-Five collector design, featuring full coverage 2.5-inch header heat shields, a unique vented w mesh inserts 4.5” main body shield and the huge billet 4.5-inch end cap that’s available in 4 different styles in either black or chrome to compliment your personal aesthetic vision.

Exclusive to Yaffe’s new pipe are features like an adjustable elbow position (slightly raised or two-up) and our “dial-able” end caps as well as a 9 piece “tone-able” baffle system.

From Paul Yaffe, the man who originated billet stylized exhaust tips, Cult Forty-Five Exhaust applications look and perform like nothing you’ve ever seen, proving once again that Bagger Nation remains ahead of the curve, in the front of the pack.

Paul Yaffe Bagger Nation Steel Dresser Dash

Change the entire look, flow and feel of your late model H-D Touring Motorcycle tank

Paul Yaffe’s Bagger Nation has taken on the task of stream lining late-model Harley-Davidson gas tanks by designing a new Clean and Simple Steel Dresser Dash. This direct bolt-on application looks sharp on H-D touring-model stock tanks from 2008–2017.

“The really large OEM tank console really plays havoc with the sleek flowing lines we are always trying to create with our products,” says Paul Yaffe. “This gave me the perfect opportunity to create a sleek, low-profile custom dash that makes your stock tank look stretched with one simple bolt-on part!”

The new Bagger Nation Clean and Simple Steel Dresser Dash is a swooping piece of sleek metal that bolts right onto your 6-gallon tank. Each steel dash comes with a trick chrome pop-up gas cap, rubber trim, hardware and simple instructions. This simple ensemble streamlines the tank area of any late-model touring Harley-Davidson motorcycle and flows right under your stock seat.

Clean and Simple Dresser Dash kits include: one steel dash, a chrome pop-up gas cap, rubber trim, hardware and simple installation instructions. Kits are available in gorgeous chrome plate, pristine gloss-black powder coat or simply raw for custom match-paint applications.

Leave it to Paul Yaffe’s Bagger Nation to keep coming up with simple ways to look sharp.

They even include free polished billet spacers! These fenders are truly perfect, just scuff them and paint them. Your painter will love us! Available for 16,17,18,19, 21,23- and 26-inch tires.
