So I bought this 6 months ago for 500 dollars it had set in a back yard for over a year and wouldn't start, I cleaned the carb and put plugs in it and rode it until January then I put it on the stand and went to work I painted it myself I put new tires on it, the previous owner had kryloned everything black except the fender rails and the speedo cover on the tank, I stripped all of the krylon and restored chrome. I added a batwing fairing with stereo a set of Harley bags and a trunk, added a crash bar with highway pegs all new led lighting, wrapped the pipes and rejetted the carb, I removed the pair valve and added a Harley ignition switch on the tank and removed the switch under the seat, I added the clutch pull relief mod and the mixture cable so I don't have to remove the tank to adjust the carb. I changed all the fluids and adjusted the valves, there was alot more I can't even think of now, anyway today it came out for its first ride after over 2 months on the stand, here are some before during and after,

Great job! A quick question, what did you do for the flames?

I need a beerbox for the back. He’s making me think about spending my money.


Sitting on my VTX making vroom vroom sounds.
I just went to your profile and looked at the pics of your ride, very sweet indeed, I wish I could find the fender trim and rail like yours but I've looked everywhere with no luck.

Thank you. I wish I could help you find it, but it came on her when I bought her. The PO did some good work in additions to this bike.
