I was wondering about that myself ACE, but the last pic has a shock on it. I was thinking as tight as those bags are to the fender (which looks GREAT) that it was either struted or there wasn't much room in those bags.
Then the prophet Isaiah called on the LORD, and the LORD made the SHADOW... 2 Kings 20:11 Okay, I know it's a little out of context, but still we have proof that God created the Shadow!!!
Been Swamped In The Shop And Not Alott Of Internet Time..
The Colapsed Length On The Shocks Are 9.5..they Are 1965 Corvette Air Shocks.
Iv Moved My Upper Shock Mount 1 Inch Forward To Get The Bike Even Lower.
With Out The Stops I Made It Will Lay Frame In The Rear.
The Bags Are Harleys That Iv Have Narrowed 2.5 Inches,stretched 4 Inches And Angle Cut To Fit The Rear Fender Profile And Lowerd 4 Inches.
I Allso Had To Cut The Back Of The Bags To Clear The New Angle Of The Shocks.im Working On The Lids And Stretched Side Covers Now.
I Allso Made A Rad Cover Chin Spoiler,pics Of That Up Next.
In Case Anybody Might Want To Do One For There Bike This Is How Easy It Is.
I Started With Solid 1/8 Rod Steel.
Tack Welded My Design Together On How I Wanted The Fit And Look.
Removed From Bike,cleaned And Rounded All The Welds And Tacked A Few More Rods To Brace It.
Next I Used A New White Wife Beater T Shirt....sml For A Good Fit.
I Used 3m 90 Spray Glue And Dusted The Edges Of The Wire Frame.
Slide The T Over The Fram And Pulled It Tight Across The Front.
Important To Get A Smooth Tight Fit Across The Front.
After The Glue Set (about 1/2 Hour.
I Split The T Down The Back Leaving The Excess Material For Now.
I Then Cut My Sides Out Of Stiff Cardboard And Using Paper Masking Tape (you Cant Fiberglass Over Any Other Tape It Wont Stick) I Taped The Edges Onto The Wire Frame.
Than Using The Spray Glue I Wraped The T Material To And Around The Cardboard Edges....keep It All Smooth And Tight
After The Frame Is Coverd With The T And Everything Is Smooth Tight And Wrinkle Free I Mixed Up Some Fiberglass Resin.
Using A Thick Paint Brush I Painted The Resin Onto The T Material..making Sure It Was Completly Soaked With The Resin And No White Was Left Showing.
Let Cure Over Night.
