      It doesn't look like much, but I got my rear fender cover put on last night. I could go through what is involved, but nobody would really care. I also got my rear air shocks mounted and my lower saddlebag support bars. Next on the list is to get the bags on for a test fit.

      Some more progress, removed all the latch hardware off the saddlebag lids. Got the saddlebags sitting on the bike (still need to be tweaked a bit to be perfect) and install my new Alpine in the fairing.

      Tossed my handle bars on just to see how they feel. I like the height of them (13''), seem like they will be pretty comfortable.

      Negative, I am however going down to Florida the week after bike week. Oh well, gotta go with the flow... Got invited down due to my mother in laws best friend's 50th b-day. The husband of the birthday gal invited us to go down as he rented a 6 bedroom house for the week and 3 vehicles. Little bummed out its not during bike week, but free rooming is nice. Round trip flights for the woman and kids came out to under $800 I am looking into renting an FLH for a day down there, the mrs is going to do magic kingdom 2 days and I am only doing 1. So I gotta find me something cool to do.

      Ordered my clutch cable, throttle cables and new shifter/brake pegs this morning... Still shopping to see which brake line I like the best, most likely going with Russell. There stuff is really good quality and looks pretty bad ass. Down to seat and slip ons. I think that will take care of all the larger money items.

      I could post new pics, but it wouldn't be of any progress. I have been doing lots of home improvements and still just waiting on parts. Once my wheel is in, I am sure I will have a bit of motivation to get my front end suspension together, air ride buttoned up and get the bike on the ground under its own weight.

    16. 02-16-2012 02:58 PM #41
      yeah i know how it is. my projects are always taking a back seat to the home stuff. i'll keep checking in, can't wait to see whats next.

      Well I guess I will post what I accomplished today other than bike work With some tax money in, we ordered new counter tops about a month ago. They got finished today, its corian. So after they finished the install of the counter top, I had my work to do. Install new drain and faucet, so off to home depot I went.

      Started my day out like this(faucet not installed, just in hole for mock up)... What a difference counter tops make, wish I had before pictures.


      Opened the cabinet below the sink:



      Decided to just cut the drain at the wall and completely redo everything rather then change a few pieces and tweak them. Ended up with this:



      Not bad for a stay at home dad/bike tinkerer

      Faucet all installed:



      Next on the list is paint for the walls and ripping the floor up.

      The End:



      Well, of the work day anyway... Our kitchen has been out of use for over a week, been eating out daily! Roast beef dinner tonight and lots of beer!!!

      Ya, I love the bike. It's one of those things that for the right price I will sell it and move onto a new toy. Certainly not giving it away, I have tons and tons of hours invested into the bike aside from all the money. I'd love a hot/rat rod project that way I could enjoy it with my family as well. I haven't got one response since I listed it. I think most look at it as a $10,000 sportster and im on drugs haha. I think a lot of people just don't realize how easy the costs add up when replacing everything on a bike, minus the actual motor/chassis.

      I'll get to some pics soon, like I said though. Not really anything going on at all, I would like to get the front suspension installed and on the bike this coming week. Probably won't happen though, trying to get a few things squared away with my hardtail to bring to an upcoming show in the area. We shall see what pans out this week.

      P.S. I love the new counter!!! Cant wait to redo the floor and paint, the kitchen should be pretty baller then if I must say so myself. I think I am going to do stainless tiles on the whole wall between the back splash and lower cabinets. We have a stainless fridge, so it should go well. I think we are going to do a stainless under mount microwave too.

      redoing things in the house is always rewarding... especially when you can step back and have beer and enjoy what you accomplished.

      funny thing is, i found your bike while i was looking for an old pick up to rod out on craigslist.

      i don't mean to derail your thread, just figured i'd keep it from fading into the depths.

      Well, here it is. To be honest, I am not super in love with it. The quality is excellent and I think I will like it a lot more when it is mounted on the bike. I think it's due to a bike show that I showed my other bike at this weekend. I got use to looking at a bunch of baggers with 26'' front wheels and got jealous. Im sure I will love it once its on the bike.




      And a snap shot from the show this past weekend. Took 1st place for Sportster radical class.
