History
Bought it 2 years ago not running and looking hopeless. Got her running and started customizing to make it fit my style a bit better and have not stopped yet. Rode Sturgis for the first time this past year. 13 spkrs, 10in screen,
Fairing, Tour pack with Subwoofer, Harley front wheel (About to do the rear swap to match it) custom floorboards, lowered bags, modified HD crashbar with lower aftermarket fairing, Hypercharger, straight pipes, rejetted
Until 5 years ago I had never wrenched on a bike and kinda cut my teeth on this one. No one seemed to make easy components to customize these bikes the way I wanted to so I figured out how to make them myself in my garage at home with basic handtools and ALOT of trial and error. Metal work body and paint, stereo, new electrical etc all done by myself. (I did pay someone to mount
my new tires but thats it. LOL! new
