Couldn't find any of the day I brought it home, but found one from not long after, following a new seat, windshield, and Cobra Fatties. And one from about 6 months before I sold it, nine years later. There were several transitions in between. Spent far too much money on seats windshields, exhaust systems, bags, and so on, changing the look each time. What I ended up though was a very comfortable, good looking, and rock solid bike. I don't regret selling it much, mostly because it had gotten so heavy my knees were complaining loudly.

The picture on the left is the picture the guy took when he sold it to me. The next is when it on its way to me. The last four pictures are how it sits now. I still have a ton of things in the works... Hopefully, if everything goes to plan I can get these things done by Jan of next year.

Added Cobra passenger boards, Cobra luggage rack and I have saddlebags but haven't made the brackets yet. That's it except for a seat in the future. Like it the way it is. I haven't seen another "N" in Tucson but hear tell there is a red one running around. :grin2:
