With the introduction of the 2014 Project Rushmore from Harley Davidson, we felt it was a great time to re-design our whole line of pipes to complement the new improvements on the engine configuration. Even though our current exhaust line fits and performs great on the new 2014s, here at D&D we never rest, since with every change inside the engine there is a change in exhaust to achieve maximum performance. So, to that end we have designed, tested, and are in the final stages of production on a brand new baffle design for our 3-1/2" and 4" slip-ons. The new sound is pure awesome: these babies have a low deep rumble at idle, sound great under acceleration and mellow rumble out at cruise speeds. Excellent for the long hauler who wants to listen to the radio (and not piss off his riding buddies!).
We are also about to introduce a brand new Stubby Cat. This is a true performance two-into-one exhaust system that dumps in front of the bags for those of you that like the look of the short pipe but refuse to give up performance. We are also in the initial stages of developing an X-pipe to go with our new slip-ons, and a brand new two-into-one and billet end caps for all the new systems.
We are in the development process on several exciting projects for the upcoming 2014 riding season, so stay calm and read on! We have developed slip-ons and a new bobcat system for the 2014 Sportster. The 2014 Sportster line has changed to 12mm exhaust ports and have relocated the rear master cylinder to the outside of the frame which interfered with the current bobcat system. The new D&D slip-ons are offered in chrome and black with a unique slash cut, and feature a redesigned wrapped baffle that produces a great deep rumble.
Right now we are developing a 2-into-1 exhaust for the HD V-Rod Muscle. With the introduction of the Muscle line, the oil fill dipstick has been moved to the right side of the motorcycle which makes our existing pipe (and most other pipes on the market) block access to the dipstick. This problem has been fixed and are in the final stages of development. Another pipe in the works is a Lowcat and Bobcat designed for the HD breakout. The issue with the breakout model was a change in the oil tank which made the existing Lowcat and Bobcat line interfere with the oil tank vent line. This issue has been addressed and we are in the final stages of development with the breakout model also. Now for all you true performance and racing-inspired enthusiasts, we are in the initial stages of development on a 2-into-1 race exhaust for 2009-2013 Baggers with 120 CI or bigger engines with S&S B2 heads. The S&S heads are .200” taller with 2” exhaust outlets. Right now, to our knowledge, no one is building a pipe that is specifically designed for this high horsepower combination. Check out the pictures in the slider above, and stay tuned for future developments as we progress on these exciting projects!
Leonard: you made all the difference in these Boarzilla's.

I will forward you Dyno info soon... Thank you for having a part in making my dreams come true... wow!!!!! Sue Schaefer, Seattle, WA
Bennie wanted some black pipes for his Bagger Harley. We said, "You bet!" Bada-boom—These black pipes have given Bennie's Bagger a crazy fabulous custom look that you just don't see (or hear) cruisin' down the road anywhere. Look at Bennie's bike in these pix... and Bennie for that matter. We're happy to report that he's one happy dude!
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.”
“We did this one just for me, and it’s become my daily rider,” says Cameron Jurow owner of Camtech Custom Baggers of Summerville, South Carolina. Originally race car fabrication facility some 20 years ago, Camtech turned its attention to custom bikes a few years back, and these guys handle it all, fabrication, paint, engine building, upholstery, you name it. There’s even a whole line of Camtech add-ons. Plenty of show-stopping machines have rolled out the doors here, so when the boss decided to put together something for himself, you have to know this “Grape Ape” would be special.
If you’re motivated to pull out all the stops to take home a show-n-go winning bagger, it makes perfect sense to team up with someone who has been there, done that—and in style. Such was the case when North Carolina bike fan Randy Laws decided to go south of the border. That would be South Carolina and the town of Summerville, home to Cameron Jurow’s Camtech Custom Baggers; the shop awarded both ROAD IRON Bagger of the Year and Bagger Nation Bagger of the Year at the Easyriders Columbus Invitational Bike Show 2012.
