Solo set up on a budget. I have it nailed.
I want to be able to swap between a solo set up so that when I don't have anyone on the back(99.9% of the time) I don't have to have the passenger seat and back rest on. I was going to buy the non tourer eyebrows(like in the below video). But those are stupid expensive and its more parts to keep track of. So what I was going to do is get some nice chrome sockets as spacer and remove the factory tourer eyebrow/fender stay, and place them as the spacers. Then I got the idea to flip the eyebrow/fender stay upside down. Shortly after that I thought... I wonder what they look like when I swap sides. And that's how I have them now. Now I'm gonna design my own rear luggage rack instead of paying 180 bucks for a aftermarket one.
I saw this vid and knew right away that's the final look I want my bike to have:
Here is some shots of what I have done. The batwing is on the way and I'm going to build my own engine bars.
