Haha, you wouldn't catch me dead in a leather vest or chaps. I do like leather jackets though...
I'll try to get you pictures, or bring the wheels to the boro for you to see by Thursday.

Here is the look im going for, minus the bags. Prob wont do ape at first but you get the idea.


Ordering a solo seat later this wk.

Sagostino::I'm still looking for fwd controls and a bobber fender, so let me know if you have some cheap. Can you get an 883 for under $3500

You plan on hardtailing your 1200? Future plans?

883's
yeah man you can get 883's for way less then 3500 i bought my 1200 for 3800 we even occasionaly get them here that cheap at the stealership...heads up if your goind to hard tail one get a pre 04....anything between 86 and 03 will work and for a solo seat i have 2 at the house just pm me if your interested

as for future plans a gotta get this 19 inch nightster wheel on might order a 2 inch tank lift kit and put real short risers on the bars...i am also looking around for a bobbed fender i can just have painted.. i have one here at work but for what ever reason nightster fenders have a bike hole right under the seat so it wont work for me. once i get the fender bobbed im gunna get side mount tag and solid struts so when the girl want to ride i can just swap them out.

Please PM about the details on seat. Pic would b awesome. Also include what you think u can get an 883 for.I was planning on getting pre 03. Thinking about the G&L hardtail.

I also thought about the solid struts but really like the lines of a weld on hard tail.
