Careful With That Axe Eugene
Oh man, your bike looks so pristine and crisp and so sexy, well done sir!
Good eye!!! It is something I am addressing as it bugs my eye too. I actually have another headlight mount fabricated to do just that I just haven’t powder coated it yet.SONIC. said:Loving it man.
My only thought is can the headlight move up an inch or so? It's below the line of the bottom and the tank and it draws my eye. I moved it up an inch or so in photoshop just to see if I liked it. I'ts attached.
That thing looks like a blast!

When I modify the kick stand I plan to powder it and install it.

Yeah the wheel swap alone was a huge weight savings I bet I shed near 50 lbs or more between that and the screaming eagle exhaust those things weighed so much compared to the replacements. The new tank, tail and bar/cluster, seat all weigh considerably less too... I’d guess I shed 60# total...CrabsAndCylinders said:It must be lighter than originally, do you have an idea of how much? By the way, I still love this bike.
Thanks.. it's not quite 100% done yet... I really want to add a skid plate, front fender extension and a set of SW Motech SLC carriers, a left side bag, and a pair of Dry-Spec tubes on the right side for a fuel bottle and tool-kit (or two fuel bottles). the Sportster carriers are out of stock, I've got an email in to Twisted Throttle to get a lead time on refreshed stock. This bike will be a legit dual sport bike with some ability to carry some cargo and stuff.JustinLonghorn said:I really do enjoy this scoot, man!
The heads are black with edge cut fins....canyoncarver said:My .02. Do the powder, same color as the heads.
That's my thinking for not doing the powder right away... most skid plates are raw aluminum. A few are available in black powder but most are raw.CrabsAndCylinders said:Matching the heads would look good but I wonder about the plate getting hit with a lot of rocks and other crap that could scratch it up.
Sorry, yes I meant the same color as the rocker box covers. The rocker box covers are separate on pretty much all HD's.3DogNate said:The heads are black with edge cut fins....
Do you mean Charcoal like the the rocker boxes? or Bronze like the Rocker Box covers? (The rocker box is separate from the head on an Evo motor.)
