    Shitty welds look shitty under chrome too, and you can’t use Bondo to make them look better. I had a pro finish weld my sissy bar before I had it chromed. I trust my welding only for things that...

    Looks like stock rake to me. Adding longer down tubes will effectively increase rake, so that’s why it might look like more. Personally, I think that bike would look better with a 35 degree rake with...

    Nothing pisses me off more than someone who kills somebody else and then kills themself. What a waste. Should have just killed himself first if that’s what he’s done.

    Stick with what you have. I have solids in my Ironhead and they work; I have hydraulics in my Shovelhead and they work. Solids are noisy at first if you can hear them over the pipes, and should be...

    If they’re stainless steel. The cost and wait time for chroming is crazy, at least around me. I paid $500 to get a sissy bar chromed recently to have it done in less than a month. Other shops quoted...

    Kill Switch Question

    I donít have a kill switch on my bike, and shutting it off is kind of sketchy because my ignition switch (just a toggle switch-kick only) is buried behind my oil tank. I have to reach down between...

    Ok, thanks. That makes me feel better. Still not sure why my kicker seems to jam sometimes. It was happening about half the time with an aftermarket 4-speed and is still often doing so with a Baker...
