    Baffle is really just a bolt and some washers. It actually sounds good. I did re-jet. It has the straight pipe and a V-stack so jetting was needed. Don't by a jet "kit" just buy the jets you need. They are only like 6 bucks or so. Eventually I ended up lengthening the exhaust with a piece of pipe from some old Harley drag pipes and this helped the mid-range flat spot I was getting.

    well, it's not a rat, but it's dirty due to an oil leak I should get around to fix..
    not much done on this, license plate moved to the left, replaced that horrible chunk of tail light with a more discrete one and the air filter got replaced with a k&n filter.
    pipe is some aftermarket "baffle" I got cheap. And of course the fuel petcock got replaced with a raptor, fuel filter too.
    sorry for the large pics...

    bike too shiny you say? on a budget you say?

    grab a scotchbrite pad and get to scuffing! underneath all your chrome is a layer of nickle plating just waiting for you to free it from the midlife-crisis-curing bling up above.

    I like both those Livingdead...
    Is that a 21" or 23" on the first one?
    The dirtbike tire just looks good!

    My old Dyna started out as a purple bone stock 2000 FXDX. When I got the bike I didn't care what the color was I was looking for a low mileage 2000 or newer bike without fuel injection, then less than 4 months after I got it I was hit on the freeway and went down doing about 55 mph and this spurred the devolution into its dystopian style, it just seemed natural. First order of business was to cut the fenders down and then break out the sander and wire wheel to strip off every speck of Richard Simmons Village People Plum Crazy Passion Purple and brush down the chrome to the soft nickel underneath. I've seen what seems to be a zillion flat black rattle can paint jobs so black was out, Rustolium patio furniture green was exactly what I wanted, it's pretty tough, goes on easy and has a very distinct hue of green. It's a flat green without being military olive drab green, and some black wrinkle coat manifold paint for the racing stripes. Added some Biltwell Friscos and eliminated the rear tail light using the turn signals as brake lights. By the time Born Free rolled around I'd ditched the stock signal lights and added a pair of 5.56mm ammo cans painted to match and tractor trailer clearance lights to replace the stock lights. Worked good, looked a hell of a lot tougher than saddle bags even if their capacity is pretty low. Bacon Run II added a sissy bar made out of Home Depot cold rolled square tubing that I was sure would end up cracking or bending and needing replacement after the ride. Almost a year's worth of riding and Mexico's infamous Highway 3 on EDR V and it's still holding it's own. This last winter the bike was down due to the dreaded TC 88's cam chain tensioner failure, by the time spring rolled around the bike was converted over to mids, Fueling's gear driven cams, oil pump, and cam plate plus a Titanium wrapped Thunderheader with the heat shields placed over the wrap and the sissy was made even taller to accommodate a GoPro for a 3rd person perspective while riding and the clearance lights got swapped out for 3 slick looking LED clusters. The bike is my main means of transportation and gets ridden year round regardless of weather with exception to when I have to use the old Toyota since its tags are dirty.

    thanks guys for those pics, i can smell the saw in my fenders and a found a big 4inch round stoplight from u-haul when you take the car trailler, in the recycle bin, i've heard freebee zip zero nada in my head!
    i'm thinking to put it on a sissybar and leave the plateholder under it.
    this week end i will go see in scrapward if i could see some motorcycle parts with beautifull quebec patina.
    Nice story Thepete, maybe not the part where you got hit, but the ''d''evolution is good. mine got grounded twice in the same week by some kids, it's at that momment it thought about the ratbike or just bare minimum mechanical maintenance and fuck the esthetics.
