First off let me say thanks for the welcomes and corny Alaskan jokes.
And secondly, the roads here are fine just really bumpy at times. Rear suspension is almost a must. Riding season took off this year at the end of march and will end mid-oct. There is a select few who put studs on and ride all winter! If you ride up here take the Alcan Hwy, just be prepared and careful but you will love it and it is worth the ride! Now onto the new pics!
Removed front fender, rear fender replaced w/fiberglass bobber fender from SScustomcycles.com (highly recommended for cool stuff), headlight is ebay special $60 and it was plug-and-play
, drag bars from the local Yamaha shop, front tool bag was free for helping a friend work on his harley! Haha silly harley owners
Some stuff you cant see are oil filter relocation (making oil changes a breeze) and a Maxair flamewire kit (this made the BIGGEST difference in starting and battery life, I HIGHLY recommend this kit). Also did a Cleever clutch lever, which is sweet!
I have blacked out everything I had time to do, I was kinda in a hurry to make sure it was ready to ride and didnt want it to look like crap. Seat was from ebay. Took maybe 10 mins to weld the seat mounts up and an hour or so of measuring. Springer seat plus stock suspension equals super comfy!
Here you can see the cover behind the trans was removed and I relocated the fuel pump up to where the air injection system was. Then I trimmed the plastic that was down there away with a Dremel. This is still a project but I get to ride it everyday. Current plans in the works are; exhaust, taller front wheel, remove lower fork covers, custom leather side bag to cover the left side where I took that cover off, and some more black paint (want the whole thing black). My idea for this bike is Less-is-more kinda deal. I loved the look of the bike (except the seat) and almost didnt change anything...but thats just not my way! Also, I wanted to do what I could for the least amount of money without looking cheap. That meant going for the product that cost just a little bit more and spending more time on details.
