Are you going to actually hardtail it or gonna use those struts?

The struts were a test run to see if it was doable on Chicago streets. The struts rode as smooth as my wifes Nightster. Now I'm going to actually hardtail the bike. I'm going to use the last couple inches of swingarm as my "axle plates". Everything behind the motor mounts is getting cut off. When I'm done with the rear I'm going to gooseneck the front end. I want some stretch but want to keep the stock length forks since they are adjustable (XL1200S)

Nope. Mine is only marginally faster on the street than on the bench.

That will be cool. Can't wait to see it goosenecked! I always liked Chica's and the Zero gooseneck bikes.

Can a Photoshop Guru show me what the exhaust would look like wrapped to the Megaphone Portion where the two pipes go into one as I am being told that is about as far back as I can wrap with this goofy ass ThunderHeader Exhaust

I don't need to hear any suggestions on what you think I should do, I just want to see what it would look like

Thanks

Wrap it up, look at it and decide if you want to keep it. Wrapping it isn't too hard. lemme know if you need the wrap (white only).
