Wileysden's front end after the wreck

The damage wasn't too bad I just waived my magic wand and all is well, yeah right!!!

I had to replace the lower tree, both forks and axle, I was able to repair the fender, both left side fog lamps and the handelbars (look at the last two photos about the bars, left is 1.37" above the right)

I just need to change the fork oil and install the windshield and fork bag and adjust the mirrors.

A special thanks to Niterider and Crobins365 for having some of the parts I need and were willing to ship overnight. Since Dave would not be healed enough to ride and I realy did not want him to have my forks w/polished lowers, sowe bought a complete used front end.

What kinda Light bar/rack is that? Is that custom or aftermarket? It looks different than Knifemaker's design.

i'd like a light bar like that. And wat kinda lights are those? How are they hooked up and operated? does it draw alot of power or a problem for our electric sys?

Peace
