Went overboard

For some reason whatever I buy can never stay the way it is. I came home with a leftover 17 rgs rode it for 750 miles and now it’s sitting in my garage apart hahah. All fairings and everything have been dropped off getting ready for paint.

At first I was gonna do stage one: exhaust, tuner, cleaner.... and now I have boxes from bad dad, s&s, and custom dynamics. Fml.
Went with
custom dynamics:
License plate frame
Mega plasma rods

Mk45’s all black

Bad dad:
Tour pack with led
Speaker lids
Summit kit
Skid plates
Classic side covers

Making this thread to show the progress and outcome and because I may have some questions along the way.

Since I have it all apart deciding which bars I want to go with and if I should black out the forks now, later or never

Also have fender mounts, exhaust heat shield, and crash bars ready to go for powder coat.

At the time of pictures the bad dad kid did not have hardware so it was sitting a little sloppy. Did not take a pic when everything was mocked up nicely 😕

Slap a peanut tank and a solo seat on there and go for a ride!

That is a good looking bike even without the tins.

Very nice. How’s the inside of those bags look? I’m liking those and the topshop but i know the topshop ones come carpeted.

If the garage in the back ground is any indication of how you roll, then that bike will be bad ass I'm sure !
