Good looking bike. Nice work you have done so far.
Good luck with the rest of the mods you have in mind.

Looks good. I took off my front fender not long ago cuz I thought it looked good. One ride home from work in the rain and it went right back on!

I would like to see how you have attached the seat. I want to do something similar. Did removing the grab rails cause the fender to be unstable?

I'm not a fan of the way these bikes look, but that looks really cool!

Joem I dont mean to chime in unwanted but if you remove the grab bars you can still bolt the fender in place with the same bolt it just tightens more. As for the seat I just shaved the extra foam off mine cut the back off attached a little braket with rivets re wrapped and welded some nuts into the frame tubes. The two bolts go through the bracket and into the nuts. And Tod For straight pipes you should rejet at least the mains. At sea level going to straight pipes from stock you would need a 138 main (basically two steps up from stock) also I had to run an eye bolt in my left side pipe because it is so short I wanted to even the back-pressure a little.
