more progress on oglejust's bike

well my bike had sat in pieces for a few weeks since i got my new dirt bike but now my dirt bikes apart bc im doing a top end rebuild on it. so while im waiting for the piston for my dirt bike i decided to work on my street bike. today i welded the frame back on (took a bit of measuring and time), put drag bars on it (looks cool but they hit the tank), and i started working on my fender. i had planned on hardtailing it but i got scared so i decided not to do that. the bars are staying, i really like them so im probably going to make so sort of risers or something to get them to work right. the fender is the trailer fender ive been working w/ for a while, i think i finally found out how im going to do this.





here i welded in a brace for support, also helps to mount the fender

Looking real cool!!! There are a couple companys that make 1" risers that fit our bikes.I think Gen-Mar is one of them.As far as lowering you can make up a set of lower brackets like I did and get about 2 1/2" lower and still have the shocks.

They are pretty easy to make.I would give you my first set but they are bent a little because they were only 3/16" the newer ones are 1/4" plate.another option is to get a set of shorter shocks from crconlinecatalog.com in there chopper section $89.99.

Justin: Looking good! The only comment I have is that you have changed direction considerably since you started your mods. Which is good - try something and if you don't like it try something else! Those handlebars are quite a switch from the monster apes you originally wanted! I like the drag bar look and that's what I am planning to do. So why did you go back to shocks from the hard struts??

Just got back from a wheeling trip to PA - we were supposed to wheel today too but the weather wasn't good. Probably the last wheeling trip until Feb or Mar so now I can get back to working on my bike. The 12 inch glass-pack muffer I ordered is in so next is my exhaust mod!
