Thanks man. I actually want to try and get more people doing stuff to their bikes. I know how rewarding it is when you finally ride it. I have friends who are talking about Blue Collar Bobbers stuff but I keep telling them to get in my garage, borrow my tools and do it yourself.
I hardly know what I'm doing half the time, but with some internet research I feel semi-confident enough to tackle most stuff I want to do.
But I'll tell you. Without this forum and the people on here I would never have gotten into this myself so I try my best to pay it forward. And hope that it gets moving again.
Actually the headlight is the stock VLX headlight. I just painted the bucket black and put a Stone Guard on it. Always wanted a Stone Guard on something and this felt like the time. In the first pictures I had the stock bracket cut down to try and get the light lower and more into the trees, but it interfered a bit too much with the speedometer cable when I put in my smaller speedo, so I got a new stock bracket.
I never did post any pictures of that light though. Here's the best one I've got:
Also I cut the exhaust up again yesterday and redid it closer to the engine so I won't burn my leg off too easily. Kinda hard to know if it's level to the ground when you don't have wheels, front fork or rear shock installed. Hopefully it will look good enough.
