Merc stopped my this mornin....with his lady....asked if i wanted to go ride....I hobbled out with a cane....back was real bad....tooks some meds, and by 3pm was walkin at least....what do i do, I went and worked on Bessie, instead of takin it easy....had to redo the bag mounts i had, not much, but i had to put some bends in to clear the shocks better....
Was almost done.needed some strappin. but I missed the hardware store by 4 mins....wasnt about to run 18 miles to the home depot....always tomorrow....bag tops are done besides the striping....need to do up the bottoms now....Im gonna need more paint, lol....between the bags and the Harley tank, I underestimated....just a lil.....3 more clearcoat, and 2 Midnight Black Metallic....pinstripe tape I got, lol....

But I gotta finish soon....I got 5 sets of FWDs to make, and a set of floorboards to mod....hopefully, a chopper tank I can paint and flip to buy materials....

All winter nuthin....now I get busy.....lol....

She aint TOO loud....the pipes are long, and I installed 8" glass wrapped baffles in em (from V-Twin mfg)....Id compare em to stock muffs as they are now....or debaffled Sportys....

My Roadglide muffs were super quiet...Im keepin them for long trips....

This is what she looked like a few days after I got her....bird nests and mouse nests removed....

Love that they left the big hoses on the carbs. Think you told me that there was like a fine mesh covering on them. And man oh man does Bessie look worlds different now

I bet you get asked all the time "what kind of bike is that?" Best response would be "one of a kind" foresure.:motorcycl
