ok, had to resize and upload to my server in order to post, so here goes, this is what my bike looked like when i went to see it,
the previous owner kept his saddle bags and his fork bag as well as the lower sissy bar bag.
when i got it home i removed the upper bag (now the only bag) and the rather tall sissy bar, then i added some old saddle bags i had hangin around,
oh, i removed the streamers from the handlebars too.
then i put a couple hundred miles on it before winter started to settle in (gets cold in northern arizona) ... this is where i began to take the back end apart, needs tire (front tire is like new) i have already picked up a full rear fender, taillight, plate bracket and a more reasonable size sissy bar, just to begin personalizing it a bit
i believe this would complete the 3 threads - thx
