looks great man! i definately like to see how you're riding and tweakin it as you go. definately a cool to follow man.
threw a little antique brass metallic on the fork sliders. I like it. Next up is the shock bodies.
Thanks guys, raddest bike I've ever owned. Comfortable for miles and holds a line in a corner like you wouldn't believe.
Sure is a 180 from your other sportster. I dig the looks and the practicality is the best on this bike, by far....
I hate dieting, but my motorcycle LOVES it.
Battery, oil tank, battery tray, battery hold down/cover all weigh almost 20lbs. New oil tank weighs 2lbs, new battery weighs 1.5lbs. The battery mount for the new small battery will attach to the right highway peg under the cam cover and weighs half a pound. Another 16lbs gone!!! That is a huge weighs savings!
Yes I will be leaving the triangle under the seat open, just like I love on old race bikes. I'll cut the rest of the brackets off the frame when my new oil tank arrives. The rear fender is going to get cut down alot more under the seat. The rear of the triangle will have an aluminum plate ziptied to it to act as a mudguard.
I also painted the rear shock reservoirs to match the front fork legs.
fuckin sick bike dude, any thoughts of a cafe styled 2 up seat/fairing???
Looks good, man. I like the new antique bronze color. Racy!
I really like the battery removal also. Huge weight saving. That bike must tear it up.
I wasn't sure I'd be able to clean the wiring up this nicely under the seat but it worked out real nice.
this thing is looking better and better...that damn welding lid still gets me though.
I trimmed up the last 2 inches of the fender struts and four inches from the fender and it has totally given the rear of the bike a new look. Now I just have to figure out the new brake light and plate mount.
I know some of you hate the seat, but its not going anywhere. Its like sitting in the Hand of God himself. VERY comfy for miles.
