New Bars - I Digs 'Em The Most

Now I need to fashion a smaller Tach somewhere to clean up the front and I am done (Gio, I was way ahead of you on that) - Had the 10k Service done to it as well and the cat who did it said the motor is pretty much brand new - I only have 9600 on it

Off to enjoy the Day - Flame if ya want - They are not straight bars - They are not Apes - They are the classic 70s Z bar to fit the style I wanted and they work well with the big ass bitch bar on the back

WORD! - I love this bike (included the before shot too)

HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

looks good dude. Now just put some sweet black header wrap on the pipes and you're solid.

Gio had a great idea - I might take the front fender off and see how that looks - My guess, even better for the 70s look I am after

Mac - Wrapping that pipe is kind of difficult as the TH comes in like 5 diff pieces - That and I am leery of what happens if it gets wet? - Not that I make a habit of Wet Weather riding (no secret there) but I am bound to get caught once in a while

Chatted with Gio and next up for the pig:

1. Front Fender Removal
2. Remove Gauges
3. Instal Smaller Tach off the tank

I might also look into a slimmer tank as well

I need something to Mod - The KTM is complete and the DRZ is done too - Found out I might be able to get both wheels PC'ed and relaced for about $500 total - Gonna be a good Summer

I have a TH on my V-Rod (loud bastard). Everyone I rode with today said:

1) God that's a loud pipe
2) Man, that sounds good

Bug, get that MF'er powdercoated black, it would fit just fine with your blacked-out bike. Then you can toss the heat shields in the garbage.

Looks good. If you PC the wheels you should do your forward controls at the same time.
