waiting

Waiting for the snow to fly, then off to the races,

Front Fender and Fairing to the paint shop to "fix" (spelled repainted) the chips I received from SFO a pickup. I"ll never do another custom paint job.

Have my console and tranny insert painted black, silver and orange by the same lady that did my floorboards,

Powder coat run for my "Chainsaw" floorboards

Install my headwinds spot/signal lights.

Probably Dragos stage 2 CNC heads, 10.5:1 pistons, 58mm throttle body and hi flow injectors and set of cams to be determined. LED headlights. Rear CVO fender/fascia if I have money left over.

His Hard Copy catalog is bit better.

These are called Revolver Vampires. I had them built special order. I am wiring so the signals are not running lights, and the spots run off of the ACC switch.

http://www.headwinds.com/ talk to Joel.

Here are the RG lights.

I had mine special ordered with the pointed (vampire) eyebrow so it would blend with my front fender's black point, and the silver for well.... silver.

I have a bunch of mods for the winter.
I just picked up the RG in June and it was pretty much stock.
removing the rear signal & brake lights & licence plate to clean up the back end.

1) Extended hardbags w/cut out for TD's
2) extended fender & fillers w/plasma rods (turn/run/stop)
3) Stealth III license plate
3) cam swap SE 204's w/adjustable pushrods
4) Progressive drop-ins -lower 2"
5) strip/sand & polish legs.
6) 21" front wheel
7) Into Lonewolf for a tune

just done:
Heavy Breather
MGS true duals
TTS
C&C solo w/backrest

all I need to do is find the right 21" front wheel, any1 looking to sell, let me know what you have got.
