Hall of Fame Induction

 In 2016, Bert was humbly honored to be inducted into the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum Hall of Fame. When he was first notified of his induction, he did not want to accept this high honor because accolades are not what Bert is all about. He does not need trophies, awards, or a bank account; he just loves his job. He's not a spiritual man, but he does feel that God put him on this earth to do what he does. Upon learning that John Penton was also going to be inducted, Bert decided to go forward with the induction for a chance to meet one of his childhood heroes, John Penton (co-founder of Penton/KTM).

The BAKER DD5: Direct Drive 5-Speed

Need replacement parts for your stock 5-speed transmission? Well, look no further!

The BAKER DD5 is a direct replacement 5-Speed gearset for the stock 5-speed; no case modification required. Whether you’re going down the drag strip or cruising down the road, the DD5 delivers increased torque capacity, improved long-term durability, and buttery shift quality, as compared to the stock 5-speed. The DD5 can handle over 200+ hp easily. Fits 1991-2005 Dyna, 1985-2006 FLT-FLH & Softail, and 1985-1994 & 1999 FXR. 

 

BAD NEWS- Harley has discontinued many of the stock 5-speed gears.

GOOD NEWS- BAKER Drivetrain has NOT discontinued 5-speed gears, and the components of the BAKER DD5 gearset will retrofit into any stock 5-speed.

Jody, Jody, Jody, who doesn't love Jody Perewitz?

 We, at BAKER, are big fans of Jody Perewitz. She is an accomplished rider, charming as a mofo, and a total badass. She currently holds 16 Land Speed records (200mph+) and has been a pioneer in leading the path for women riders. She does not give a rat's ass; if it's got two wheels, she's going to ride it with the throttle wide open.

and what's next for her 

 

Moonshine Harley-Davidson 

As we feature some of the top BAKER dealers (based on sales volume, customer support, and systemic knowledge), it is no surprise that Moonshine Harley-Davidson made the list. When it comes to custom engine builds and fast V-Twins, Moonshine Harley delivers the mail. They do not compromise on quality by buying that cheap Chinese shit; all their products are made in the United States of America, including the components on their new M8 139” Nightmare crate motor. One thing that sets them apart from other Harley franchises is their highly informative instructional videos. If you haven't seen their videos, you are living under a rock. Their videos are professionally produced, technically informative, and are served with a shot glass full of entertainment. They freely share juicy pieces of technical info that you can't read in a service manual. If you’re looking to go balls to the wall, Moonshine Harley will hook you up.
