Started this thread on my personal account but figured it should be posted from our Master Acct. so here it go! @seandel

We picked up a 2007 XL 1200 with a ton of miles and a fresh top end for a great price from our buddies at Pomona Valley Harley a couple weeks back. It was a one owner woman owned with over 40,000 miles.

Got it home and put together a parts list for Cafe Sportster parts we currently offer. (Burly Brand (http://burlybrand.com/)). I also reached out to Shane at Chainsikle (http://chainsikle.com/) for a set of his rear sets and have a few undecided parts to chase down.

Here's the list so far:
Burly Brand Cafe Tail Section for Rubber Mount Sportsters (2004+)
Burly Brand 15" Stiletto Shocks
Burly Brand 1" Clubman Bars
Burly Brand Clubman Cable Kit
Burly Brand MX Style Pegs
Chainsikle Rear Sets

Undecided Parts
Exhaust
18" Rear wheel
Front Fairing

Managed to steal a prototype Cafe Tail Section from the engineering dept. Here are a couple pics!

Burly tail section comes with everything you need to mount up. Also as an option for the '07 & '08 models with a special ECM mounting bracket.

So far so good. If only the powers of osmosis would kick in this build would be done by now. Next will be to strip her down, cut her up and mount some parts.

Jim and I had some free time last Friday and busted a bunch of the major stuff out of the way.

Cheapy little fairing from eBay looks great with the dual gauges.

That is a nice tail section, and a good choice for this little fairing. Looking forward to see what you come up with for the exhaust. A ceramic black finish could be nice.

Okay so we made some progress on this one and wrapped it up to show at Born Free. Here is the pipe we went with. A Vance and Hines Comp Pipe stainless in a black ceramic coating. Sounds and looks great but most importantly it clears the brake lever on the Chainsikle rear sets.

Here are some pics.

Also scored a 18" rear wheel from Sam at Ride Wright Wheels (http://www.ridewrightwheels.com/) Makes the rear of this bike reazlly come alive!! Wrapped it with Metzeler ME880's and re-wrapped the front tire with a ME888.

Thomas to the rescue with the tire swap!

And just like that the rear wheel and exhaust are on. Time to start her up and test her out.

What kind of modifications did you have to make installing the 15" shock? I've read that you may need to relocate some things.

I have a short exhaust so those mounts are gone.
