My first mods:) removed windshield, hi way bars, sissy bar, and replaced seat with a vn900 seat. I like the look so far. What's the best way to polish the brackets I modified that hold the rear turn signals?

Post up some more pics, including the mount for the seat! I love the 900 seat mod, makes our bikes look killer.

Btw your 86 (or 85?) is in great shape. Really well taken care of!

I swapped over the bolts mounts to the new seat after checking three times and drilling once. then simply bolted to the frame. checked for strength with the wife on the back the cut the turn signal brackets and reinstalled.

I wonder what that old seat was from? Doesn't look stock.. maybe a modified stock seat.

Also is that an old wet style battery? You'd probably benefit upgrading to an AGM style if so! :)

@ slimvulcanrider.
As for beer and a saws all Check out the former turn signal/backrest brackets. Original question was how do I polish up the metal after slicing and dicing. But I think I found some ideas in another thread. Bear with me guys I'm newto bikes. Used to ride motor bike as a kid. This is new territory.

I'll tell you what I did...may be cheating. :) My rails were in really good shape so I just went over them a little with some Never Dull. The parts where I cut them, I filed and then sanded it smooth. Then I put some chrome-looking HVAC tape over the cuts and trimmed it to shape. Shines better than I could have done with trying to polish it myself. Of course I just happened to have that tape left over so it was free for me to do it that way.

This is similar to what I used:
