Where did you order your parts from? The only place I've found that makes what I like is Blue Collar, but they are pricey to say the very least.
They are from Blue Collar Bobbers - and while pricey are well worth it with how easy they were installed! Especially for a guy with very little mechanical experience and zero welding experience.
Today's work consisted of:
- connected the rear blinkers to power
- installed the rear fender bracket - only waiting on paint (that's two weeks out) to finish that
- removed the handlebar clutter and started planning the transition
- replaced the handlebars
- removed the windshield - I wasn't sure if I would like it or not, but I think it looks much better!
As for the shocks, I was tentatively planning something like that for phase two, but unsure how to go about it. Any advice/tips would be appreciated!
Except for the taillight, all lighting is finished. The taillight will be installed after the fender is painted and mounted. Now simply waiting for the new handlebar controls (which won't be on the handlebars) and grips, and things should be good to go. Hoping to have everything finished by the time paint gets here, so all I need to concentrate on will be painting.
