    Fitting a rear fender issues

    that all seems pretty sturdy to me! 3 points of contact and support is certainly the best! im only using the bottom and then struts, but i wish i could do 3 but everything i could come up with just looked ugly or something was in the damn way! lol and yea, i also plan on using small rubber piece...

    Fitting a rear fender issues

    yea, that gap is normal. it is much more common to get a fender to fit your wheel, not the frame. there is about an inch on both sides of my fender. but i suppose if you wanted it to touch the frame you would need a 10" but be cafeful gettin it too close or else when it is painted the paint...

    Fitting a rear fender issues

    Sorry, just to clarify are you saying you want the fender to touch the frame on both sides? Or to fit right with a 200 tire or both? I would think if you want it to touch on both sides you would need a10" wide outer width fender for a 10" wide frame inner width.

    does a spring seat make a rigid comfortable?

    you can run drag bars if the bike is set-up right to run them confortably. i have them on my harley and i put a few thousand on at a time very comfortably. my XS project has forwards and drags too, and i set it up to sit just about the same as my harley. all about ergonomics is right, and the...

    forks and mounting tank issue

    also BEFORE you final mount your tank, you need to get your front end squared away with the bars and risers you will use and check your clearances. make sure nothing is hitting the tank when you turn your bars all the way in each directions. and make sure to leave a little room for the...

    forks and mounting tank issue

    Harleys vibrate! at least mine does! but mine is also 20 years old back when they solid mounted the motors ;) but i wouldnt have it any other way! as far as your issue with the tank there are many different mounting solutions. i just drilled a hole through my frame gussett on the front and put...

    What are you using for a kickstand on your bobber?

    I'm going to be using the tc bros one. Its nice and clean, simple. And a good price. Looked at other options including modifying the stock one but I think that one is the best bet. If its just the chrome that has you hung up, just paint it ;) sorry I couldn't have been more help :/

    New toy - 2004 Buell XB12R Firebolt

    yea i would have to agree, i love the look of chopped and bobbed buells, but you already have a few of those style bikes. streetfighter is always a kool way to go, or maybe a rolland sands type custom job would be sick! look up some of his stuff its pretty sick and this would be a good bike to...
