I know i totally messed up the seat,luckily i have and elderly retired neighbor who likes to refurbish old furniture so now he can try to make his first bike seat.
I like the small rear mirrors and dont think they come much smaller than this ?
But 40 inch wide drag bar and mirrors on the ends of it makes the tiny bike looke really wide,so maybe i ned to chop of a couple of inches from each side ?
Ned to finnish little detail here and there on it and then its time to move the footpegs forward,please chip in with any good idea if you wish,i have some stainless tubing and plate and a set of harley footpegs on the way,but havent descidet on how to make brake and gear lever pedal yet.

Thank you for the response and yes im am the one riding the frog,its not that i dont think the apehangers dont looke cool i just dont like riding with them,but where all a bit different and that makes the world full of wonderfull build bikes.
Got little more done today,first a pic of how i did the de goating
Rear fender and rear led light with brake license plate and blinker got mounted and finnished the soldering work,so now its just small led blinkers in the front that neds to be done in the electric department,yes tested the new stator and regulator and it runs like a charm charging little more than 14 volts
I would loved to have the license plate on the side instead of it messing up my shorty rearfender,but even eu made it legal the danish goverment wont allow it and dont hessitate to give you a 200 $ fine for doing it

Didnt got any more work done today after a friend turned up on his new toy
I had to cut his exhaust into pieces to remove the cat and exhaust valve and weld it back together again so he couldt get a little more power,nice bike pulls like a freight train,it have been rolled to 201 hp at the rearwheel before i opened his exhaust so lsightly faster than the vulcan.

Im not a big fan of high handlebars and specially not apehangers,so naturally i going for drag bar style,only slight bend in the ends and 40 inches wide
I bought a riser kit to clear the tank,not sure if its enough around 2 inches but i really would like to kep it loooow so not sure if it will stay and i just have to live with a bigger turning radius ?
Painted the clutch lever and masterbrake cylinder glossy black and bought a highway hawk chrome lid for the master brake fluid container,more pics tommorow
