UK bike done

Hi all I joined this forum a while ago when I first bought my vn I have had the bike for about 4 years and finally got it completed I have put a vance+hines exhaust on it and it sounds fantastic not to everybody's taste but I think it looks smart

Nice! Which seat is that?

The seat is a mustang and it's very comfortable my hips can play up and cause me some discomfort with this seat and forward controls it makes this bike a pleasure to ride I have seen them on us ebay occasionally but they are very hard to get in the uk

Nice! Bet those forward controls help that seat work.

I shipped my Mustang to Norway, darn thing was killing me.

Nice. I love the exhaust and the solid color tank. Did you repaint it? I would love to have matching painted sidecovers, fenders, and a solid color tank on mine. My '02 (blown engine) has a black tank with silver sides, the used '97 I just bought has a dark red tank with grey sides and chrome sidecovers. The only thing I don't like are the forward controls. I don't have a problem with forward controls, but those are a bit overstyled for my taste.

I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.

Hi the forward controls are for comfort yes they are a bit Ugley but getting them in the uk is near impossible so I had to use what I could get I did repaint it and the photo does not do it justice its metallic red but it has a silver speckle in it and when the sun on it wow

I keep hoping I'll find a compatible set of forward controls lying on the side of the road some day. I'd love to have a set!

My set came from the US it was a company selling them off so the cost was not to expensive but anything I buy from the states I have to pay a import tax of 20% and the postage charges are high my v+h exhaust came from a UK company but they were 400 about 3 years ago well worth the money they sound great
