looks killer for that era shadow man , the only change would either lower the ass end ar change the fender , try a set of Burly Slammer shocks for a sportster (10.5 " eye to eye) that will put the ass end in the weeds and tuck that reatr tire nicely,
good lookin bike man

Congrats........I'm with Shadow, looks killer except that that rear fender looks odd.

the stock fender was flat because it had those 2 ignitor boxes on it. THis one is a bobtail fender from a sportster.

Bike looks Great! Nice Job.

I agree with the others.....I would just lower the ass end with struts or shorter shocks. But if you like it the way it is it doesn't matter.

i think with the sportster seat with no springs, it would make for a very rough ride. i was thinking about the struts for a while, i also read thats not a great idea with the driveshaft rear end tho.

I would consider maybe rolling the rear fender forward and lowering a bit, but I like it as is, too :)

It ses shadow all over it! I sorta want that exhaust setup. Where did ya source the pipes. Mine are a rusty mess. and did you re-jet the carb? Mine has the whole stock power chamber thing but previous owners wrecking it has it full of dents.

i did rejet and the exhaust was made kind of on the spot. i rode the bike up to a muffler shop where my buddy used to work and we just started messing with different ideas. 2-six packs later, we have this exhaust lol. those are old pics too, i'll upload some new ones and i'll have to go back through and try to remember what i jetted to.

I actually missed the update last month so glad Noviastar brought this back to the top. That is a good looking bike! I often see these for cheap and ignore them because they are shaft drive but yours looks really good! Same comments for me though about the ride height/rear fender
