    Well! I feel kinda crappy with a head cold, but I decided to move the coil and ignition switch, and tuck the wiring. I really dig how it came out!
    New king and queen seat arrives Monday! Fuck yea!

    Before:


    After:


    This pic was taken at an odd angle, and I think it looks kinda funky. I also didn't snap a pic of the left side... Ill do that tomorrow when I make new plug wires.



    More tomorrow!

    Finally finding a chance to post the pic's of the coil / ignition relocation side of the bike. Just cut and shortened the oem plug wires... I like how silly / funky the left side is:



    The same day we laid down a mohecan gold pearl on my good buddy's frame and tins... we're gonna be rolling three deep by the end of the month. I'm super stoked... here's a teaser of the pearl undercoat:



    And here is another teaser after the clear dried:





    Okay back to my bike. I got my new seat mounted tight... and shittily modified my crap sissy bar to support the back of the seat until tomorrow when I make a rad custom sissy bar out of stainless. I spent my lunch giving the cherry dipped sparkle bitch a bath. Only other time I have washed the beast was after the salt flats last year. I forgot how purty she can shine:











    I'm really hating my bars right now. They were great when the bike was stock... felt cool, but now they're an eye sore. I realized they were punched too far forward so I tilted them back a bit... still hate them. Hopefully the swapmeet this weekend provides me with some cool rabbits or pull back bars this weekend! If anyone knows a good vendor for longer brake lines please let me know.

    Here are some crappy pics at the shop at the end of the night:

    Tore off that bolt on crap sissy bar finally, and started bending up a new one.

    Hot hot hotttt...



    hmmmm...



    okay...



    Got the frame of the sissy all bent and tacked together, mocked up... fucking rad! Gonna kink the top back a lil bit when all is said and done. And a super secret cool accent piece to back the top of the king queen! Huge thanks to my buddy Joe who is a fucking metal wizard.

    Here's a boring night cap for ya, the mount tabs; plasma cut and hand ground:





    Oh! we threw a huge ass drill into the back yard fire pit, and pulled it back out at the end of the night...




    and that cool pearl gold bike teaser, that was just an undercoat. Here is a poor photo of it now. Its ridiculously beautiful in person. Joe... again.. you are the bee's knees. Charlie, all your hard work is payin off. This bike is going to drop jaws:




    Well anyway. Sissy frame should be all welded and mounted tomorrow. Super stoked! Gonna machine some stainless fun stuff to make this thing a little more my own in the next coming week. It's kinda silly when working on bikes. Once you change one thing, you find two more things to change. Long story short, plans son!

    Well, just got back from a camping trip on the bikes... so she's dirty as all hell, but I made my bars and got a new rear tire mounted.







    Here's one of our camp spot when we got there:



    More soon,

    Didn't have to do anything. Leans like a motherfucker with the stock one, but it works just fine. Going to modify / make one eventually that has it sitting more upright

    Bike has gone through some crazy changes since I last updated. My main man Joe more than helped me create our own version of a 'double crazy frank fender' and new sissy bar set up. Made up a new K&Q seat, threw some 4'' risers and narrowed some apes about 2''. Switched to Mid's as well. Diggin the changes, lots more to do yet. We're gonna make up a new trick gas tank, finish bodywork on tank and fender, paint it, throw some bends on the sissy bar, swap belt to chain that's sitting on the shelf, and lots of other stuff I'm sure I'm not thinking of hah.
