Couple months ago I bought a 97 vt1100 ace in great shape, it was well maintained by the previous owner, has just over 87000km on it, I've got things I'm changing out on it and I've been able to do a few different things so far. I'll continue to post pics until I'm at where I'd like to be with it.

I have a '97 Shadow ACE VT1100C2 as well. Yours looks in much better shape. Only mods I did to my Shadow that made a real difference was install 10" mini apes and replaced the stock seat. Can't wait to see your progress.

Thanks man, what's yours look like? I got lucky, the previous owner took real good care of it and I got a good deal on it. I cant wait to actually ride it!!

Here's a recent picture (minus the saddle bags). I would say this is her best side. The left side has a big dent in the gas tank. The right side has a some little dents that I created. :) She looks good if you stand at least 6ft away though. :(

Beauty of a bike!! Doesnt matter about condition of the tank or anything. The shadows are one of the greatest bikes made!

Bought this set of crash bars from a local motorcycle salvage and sales yard, under $100, they have some rust and wear on them but cant beat the deal, anyone know if I'll have to change out my floor boards to make them fit?

I am guessing they will fit OK. By the pictures I looked at anyway.
May depend on the brand of floorboards.

Looking great! A buddy of mine found these fabric covers that slip over the crash bars to help with wind on colder days! Really helped.

Thanks, making in my own one piece at a time. A buddy of mine who is also my mechanic has them to. He says the same thing

Hey Kyle I never noticed that mini visors on your turn signals (crash bar looks cool by the way). Did you make them?
