Yeah I donít really care what he says at this point thereís no way Iím building the springs to this because that is for a rigid only and this is not a rigid and it looks a whole lot better without the springs. Actually it works pretty good without the springs I like it OK.

Seat looks brand new, 16k miles. Splines ARE factory greased very well so just freshening them up and ready to go. Brakes are like new. Total ripper. Heckuva deal.
Funny enough there's an 80k mi Vulcan near me for $200 and I'm trying my best not to buy it right now

Ok hereís what i went with. I like it. Has integrated turns that are yellow.

The custom fender mounts turned out to be a perfect place to make some sheetmetal runners for the lights.

Happy with how this turned out. Also spent an hour tidying the wires and flex looming everything.

Starting on blacking out things now. I like chrome, but the surfaces are pitted and damaged.

Is that enough light for daytime? I don't know. Maybe if they were stacked together over the fender between the frame rails?

Just thinking about brake/turn signals in daytime. Didn't like the weak LEDs in my OE tailight, not real visible in daylight, I played games with the brake pedal to be noticed, but the old bulbs are going back in until I find something brighter. Less price can mean less light.

Look great any time day or night. No pics with the brake on, much brighter. Easier to see the running light in the day than stock. Got the wheels black, working up the neck to the bars now.
