alright ive been savin some money to put towards my bike so im tryin to decide what im gonna do w/ it. ive decided this is what im looking to do.

followed by a L.E.D. sparto chrome taillight:

then very soon w/ the help of gary (scoop) im hardtailing it.
after the hardtailing is dun
i'll fit my trailer fender. then im making my seat, which i will cover w/ this:

^^^yes thats deer skin its soooooo soft and i really like the color
then after the bike is put together ill see what i want to do about handlebars and im thinking about putting trumpet mufflers on it, either straight or upsweeping. im experimenting w/ the idea of the trumpet mufflers bc theyre 100 bux a piece for the straight and 115 each for upsweeping. btw if any1 comes across any trumpet mufflers for sale plez hit me up. heres what they look like:

You got some pretty good Ideas there. The chain link sissy bar is old school look that would fit in pretty well with the way your going.It just takes a lot more time to do and you need some sort of jig to keep the chain tight and straight as you weld.

I'm thinking your bike is going to be many people's wallpaper when you're done...

I'm definitely looking forward to seeing what your bike looks like when you're done (as if we're ever done on our projects...)

I'm basically gonna go with the same headlight and tail light but mine will be black....rather than hard tail mine I'm gonna tie the rear fender into the swing arm and put short shocks on the rear though...for more of that old school flat track racer look..

What your doing should look great....I know how I've got mine layed out in my head and have a good idea what your thinking about doing. It should look sweet.
