    hey, i was reading one of your replies to a guy about ape hangers. u said you had 10 inch hangers on your with stock cables. im new to modifying bikes. im afraid ill get the wrong ape hangers, what the heck is pull back? and the whole riser thing i dont understand either.

    i have a 01 shadow vt600 im wanting to put an ape hanger that will get my fists level with my shoulder. im 6 ft 4 and trying to do some mods to the bike to make it fit me
    thanks for your time. - walt

    Side panels are sick I will check out Bluecollarbobbers.com for them. How did you extend the bottom header for the exhaust?

    Hey Reny, yeah I did paint it. I posted some when I first did it. I'm not sure how to tell you where it is, lol.

    Heh I haven't used a front brake or turn sigs since I started running it on the road. Thanks for the heads up on the throttle Jim.

    @ RnysShadow... You have to ublot the rear then cut right before the seat pan. I did mine with a grinder. Leave enough for the rear taillight tho.

    @jimnfor ..i got a 97 VLX and just took off the exhaust...looking to wrap them but was surprised at how thin the rear exhaust pipe is compared to the front. Did you wrap them ?

    Hey.. I visited bluecollarbobbes and I think i willl start the project soon. I just have a question, I was looking at the frame, but coulnt figure out if I have to cut it or just unbolt the rear end. Do I have to cut it?

    The seat, side covers, and rear fender came from Bluecollarbobbers.com. The pipes are stock/cut off. Carb had to be rejetted of course. Air cleaner, some place online. The bars-craigslist. Removed the front fender/brake/speedo/turn signals. Most of the stuff can be done one at a time without putting the bike down for several days.
    And thanks. Let me know if you need anything.

    thanks man, not too many fans of bobbers on this site, lol. The clutch lever is factory, relocated the hi-beam switch and horn button on the left side. The grips and single cable throttle are Avon/Jackhammer, bout $20. Moved the start button down under the tank on the left side. Still not sure if that is a good place for it, I fumbled for it a couple of times this weekend. Hope this answered your questions, if not let me know, I can ramble some more, lol
