History
I purchased this from a guy locally around July/2010. He wanted it to fit into his group of Harley friends so he put a custom hitch, saddle bags, custom sissy bar, custom luggage rack and the rattle-can special paint job. I didn't notice it when I bought it but the guards for the hard bags had been resting and crushing (while riding) the shocks. The guy who the previous owner purchased it from was trying to make it into a custom bobber as you can see from the front fender being chopped to be useless. Looking to replace the front fender before a nice new (real) paint job.

Modifications

Interior
The pipes that are on it currently are not chrome but seem to be primer colored. I want to install an exhaust wrap on the pipes.
Exterior
After noticing the damage the saddle bags were causing to the shocks I have since removed them along with the custom hitch. The rear turn signals were installed inside the bags, so I purchased replacements that are closer to OEM style turn signals. After realizing the headlight had been replaced with a car/truck sealed beam headlight that was glued into place in the housing I replaced the headlight assembly and installed an H4 HID conversion kit (best $50 I have spent so far). I have plans to replace the useless chopped front fender with hopefully a used nice one on the cheaper side. Followed by a new (real) paint job.
