Modifying my bike

I have noticed that it is very difficult to find after market parts for a shadow, whether be exterior; LED's or engine parts. Am I looking in the wrong area or have mods for the shadow gone out the window, or do I have to be a professional welder and have an active imagination?

I can't find custom fender parts, ape hangers or seats that match my needs.

What bike do you have. I've seen lots of people change their bikes look with either aftermarket accessories and parts, or with their creative ability to fabricate their own parts.

2002 Honda Shadow VT750 ACE Custom.

For half of those things, you need to take measurements and look them up by size. There are a ton of lights, bars, etc, but they aren't exclusively for the Shadow.

What if I am looking for custom seats, back fenders; after market tail lights; headlamps and aftermarket applique for the bike. I have checked ebay and the only results I have gotten were mostly chrome oem parts or parts that people were selling form their bike that is either vendor trash or bike parts.

And lighting systems as well, I wouldn't mind putting some cool lights on it, I know of oznium but wasn't sure that there were certain parts made specifically for lighting
