Harley has a gloss black heavy beather, and just came out with a spring seat for that bike, kinda cheesy lookin though. You could always have it wrapped in nicer leather.

dont buy any harley aftermarket parts. there over priced and there late on whats "K00L" all the they sell now is what people were doing 6 years ago you can get a good afptermarket solo seat for like 40 bucks with springs and just make your own mount and if you wann change that back fender go get you a 12 buck trailer fender and hack it up. The way I look at it if you can fab it dont buy it. Plus your bike wont look like every other weekend worrior with a Harley. Put your on style to it not someone elses.

That's what distinguishes personality in bikes. I'd feel weird if I run across someone else w a tat like mine someday.

Yeah, well I can see 40mph to 100mph, thats all I need to see really. It doesnt have a tach or any "dummy lights" (I took those off to make it look cleaner) But yeah I can see the top half of it thats why I rotated it a little bit to see what I wanted

Well as soon as I can stay off it for more then a week I'll start actually cutting hard on it and such. Right now Im doin small things here and there cause its a Project and can't be done over night. But I've done cut, grinded, painted, rigged and fab'd up small things here and there, dont know whats the wikipedia definition of a "Bobber" but I think I'm almost there. Its just I dont have a whole lot of experience with these bikes and doin this kinda of thing so I guess its a "Bobber" to me but I completely understand if it's not a "True Bobber" in the eyes of others. Its just all bout doin things myself in my garage with parts I make and slappin 'em on and riding it till I got fix something or add something to it againto my liking. To me thats a "Bobber"
But it can be different to others as well so......Just ride On!
