Newcomer from SLC, UT

Hey guys! I picked up a 2000 ACE 750 on a trade so I figured i'd join the forum for all the good info! I plan to work on my Ace all winter and i'm calling the project "Bobber with a girlfriend" because i love the look of everyones shadow bobbers but I refuse to give up my passenger seat. So we will see where the project takes me! BTW do i not get a signature for awhile? I went to user CP but i have no option for signature.

Here is the bike a few days ago when i picked it up, then a pic of it sitting today with the batwing and all bags stripped off. Sorry for the crappy iphone pictures, ill try to take them more steady.

Welcome to the Forum. Keep that fork bag off your bike. The fender will thank you for it.

Does anybody have suggestions on a good slim aftermarket seat? Smaller than the stock seat!

I actually don't like the bars that are on it now. I'm going to get the stock risers powder coated and make some new bars. But with the holidays and all, I am broke!! So in the meantime I'm cleaning up my hand controls so the new bars look cleaner. I'm going to move my kill switch to a more discrete spot and I ran my starter switch (8$) to a small spot by the key.
