First Change in a While

First change in a while. Found a rusted old Hypercharger, rebuilt and painted it....and added a few stripes and slapped it on the bike.

The bike is filthy....but the HC doesn't look too bad

Nice job. Just for looks or functional?

It's semi-functional. I have the "Quiet Pods" set up that uses the stock base to the air box, so I was able to connect the HC hose to deliver cooler air up under the tank. I doubt it'll make any difference...but it sounded good...lol

Went a little further and put my tank badges back on the bike, did a little lettering and striping on the side covers....

LOL..... headed to the V Star 1100 Riders forum Meet and Greet in Cloudcroft, NM in a couple weeks for a full week of riding with buddies from all over the USA. Wanting things to look their best. I actually even washed it yesterday for the first time in over a year.
