PIZZAZZ

Scott Ward’s Camtech CVO Redux

Harley-Davidson builds what it believes to be the ultimate custom motorcycles in the Custom Vehicle Operations Division (known as CVO). These limited-edition CVO bikes have every bell and whistle the Harley can provide. While the designers at Harley-Davidson may think their CVO Street Glide is the bee’s knees, Scott Ward of Greenwood, South Carolina, decided he could make the best even better. “I bought this CVO Street Glide brand new back in 2011,” Scott recalls. “As cool as it was, I felt like it needed a bit more pizzazz.”

 For this daunting task, Scott went to one of the finest purveyors of custom baggers in America, Cameron Jurow and his talented team at Camtech Custom Baggers in Summerville, South Carolina. Cameron has designed and built a hefty stable of rolling art and won many awards at bike shows around the country. Josh Zak at Camtech was in charge of taking the CVO bike right down to the frame, raking the neck to 46 degrees, and adding 1 1/2 inches of stretch. Camtech beefed up the motor to 113 inches using Revolution Performance heads and J.E pistons in Harley’s Screamin’ Eagle package. Horsepower, Inc. handled the fuel-injection and the big incher makes noise through a set of D&D Boarzilla 2-into-1 pipes. “And those pipes shoot out a five-foot flame thanks to two sparkplugs back there,” Scott tells us. “I had Cameron add those just for the shock factor.”

 Camtech extended the CVO gas tank and Cameron and Scott decided on Sinister Industries fenders, a 26-inch RC Component front wheel shod with Vee Rubber. “When I first started customizing this bike, I put a 23-inch front wheel on it, but then decided to go for the 26-incher,” Scott says. “Everybody told me that I’d have trouble running a 26-up front, but I swear it runs better with the 26 than it did with the 23.” When it came time for custom paint, a Camtech specialty, Scott picked out a cool, sweeping design in select shades of offwhite, candy orange and black. And while the paint may not be too loud, the stereo sure is. “I kept the stock H-D radio but added two amps and eight Focal speakers,” Scott says. “You’ll sure hear me comin.”

 Much of the original Harley-Davidson CVO bling remains on this swoopy Street Glide, but Scott added Paul Yaffe Bagger Nation bars, a Dakota Digital speedo, a Highroller two-up seat, and hidden Camtech taillight for just the right touch of class. Speaking of class, our ROAD IRON cover model, Brittany Watson, a bagger rider from Georgia, was happy to add the finishing touch of stateliness to what we like to call “the ultimate custom CVO.”
