Fellow Shadow owner here. I like what you've done. And I dig the no-fender look.

I appreciate it evil, what year is yoursThe one in my avatar is an 03 Shadow Sabre. I also have an 05 Sabre that looks pretty much identical (just more stock chrome. I haven't gotten around to blacking it out). I liked the Sabre so much I had to have two. Funny thing is, one of the big things that originally drew me to the Sabre all those years ago was how it looks stock. Then my tastes changed and now both bikes don't look anything close to stock, and I no longer like how the Sabre looks stock. But they're great bikes and I have no regrets. I've been riding the 03 for 12 years now, almost every day, without a single breakdown, and it's never failed to start. I took the speedo off at 50k miles so I don't know how many miles it has on it now. Still going strong. The 05 has also been just as reliable.

Haven't done much to the shadow. Still trying to come up with a name more than anything. I ran an ugly stock square headlight for a while but finally put in a round one I found cheap.
