Her is my before and after, I've owened it 6 months it was on the stand for 2.5 of them getting a rebuild.


Before

171551





after


171552


All work was done by me alone including paint and dent work. Installed the batwing with Glens headlight extender, pair valve removal, Glens a/f mixture cable, relocated the ignition switch to the tank, fabricated mounting brackets for the Harley bags installed all LED lighting front and back, installed a serus XM stereo, crash bar and pegs, I made the leather heatshield or "crotch cooler", stripped all the old black krylon paint and repainted the engine and restored a lot of chrome that had been painted over, and much more.

I’ve only had the bike for 6 months. I’ve read about others doing carburetor rebuild although I thought is fuel injected. Thought I’d look into that when I get the time. Won’t need to do anything if fuel injected. I should read the manual. First cruiser, sport bikes were my thing. Still learning
