The new Auto-Glide Standard sets the pace for Ridley's 2008 line. Destinctive features such as the satin engine finish, retro styled headlight, bobbed tank design, rubber grips, and filament bulb turn signals create a unique look for the Standard. Designed for the budget minded, the Auto-Glide Standard features the best of what makes the Auto-Glide Ridley's most popular model platform ever; low seat height, light weight, and automatic transmission.

Engine: Natural engine finish with retro Ridley style valve covers. Naturally finished and clear coated flywheel covers, regulator covers, and more accents.

Instruments: Tank mounted dash includes a large, easy to read "dial" type mechanical speedometer, turn signal indicators, battery voltage indicator, and hi/low beam indicator.

Paint: The new Auto-Glide Standard model is available in three finishes; Black, Red, and White. The frame, swing arm, and battery tank come standard in black high tolerance powder coating.

Front End: Functionally identical to the rest of the 2008 model line, the Standard's front end is finished with a natural look. The brightened aluminum is finished with clear powder coating to provide long life.

Safety: Additional reflectors adorn the front and rear fenders to enhance visibility at night and during the day.

Exhaust: Engine exhaust noise has been reduced by increasing the exhaust pipe size and adding additional baffling. Optional exhaust is also available.

Transmission: The '08 Auto-Glide Standard features Ridley's early style Type I automatic transmission. Transmission belt replacements are less than $50!

Design: Full fenders front and rear. New “bobbed” split tank design is a look borrowed from the Auto-Glide Old School. Built on the same frame as other Auto-Glide models, most accessories and after market equipment fit with ease. From saddlebags to driving lights and motorcycle covers, they fit and look great on the Auto-Glide Standard.
