The bike is looking good, and I love the dual sportster name. But those pegs look off, it may just be the angle of the pic, but it looks like you would have to angle your toes inward to hit the rear brake or shifter.

Must be the angle.. they are pretty close to the same shape and orientation as the stock pegs were, like every EVO Sportster mid-controls since '04 when they changed the mounts.

Seen the Cone Engineering 2-1 for Sportsters?

Hadn't seen that one... and it's about the same price as the RSD one but stainless.... I was hoping to do a high pipe 2-1. but that certainly doesn't suck. it's on the  list thanks.

Got the levers, shock eye covers and coil relocation bracket powder coated today. I ordered a Kinetic Cycles relocation bracket, wasn't terribly impressed with it. The paint they used was brittle and chipped EASY... and the little choke bracket was too wide... so I cut off the choke bracket and fabricated another that fits the choke cable mount much better and powder coated it. At least the KC mount was one of the more affordable ones out there. Oh... and those enormous butt ugly grips are outta here as soon as I pick something.. they feel like I'm holding a leather soda can.

leather soda can.

Euphemism of the week...

Well piss... turns out that my front tire ended up being just a wee bit too fat to be able to use the Ironhead style fender struts I was hoping to... Now I'm on the hunt for a Nightster/72 type fender...

Gonna give a swing arm chain tensioner on this one a go... that'll keep the chain off my rear brake linkages.  I need  to do some upgrades with a skateboard wheel and possibly a stronger spring but it's physically gonna work.



I also grabbed some matte black mirrors off eBay....

I relocated my coil over to where the old horn was mounted. I got out and installed a smaller horn up in the front today. (no way can my OCD allow for a horn button and no horn.) I'll probably fabricate a better bracket that tucks it up a little tighter.

I finished rebuilding the carb last night... I re-jetting it with new brass and needle from CV performace and added an extended Mix screw so that I might actually reach it to tune it. :)

I added a metal cap to it... I'll powder coat it to match the intake and other stuff if the stinkin' intake would ever show up.



My new grips arrived today too... MUCH better than the huge leather grips that were on it.
