Harley Rider Cup Holder-50700001

My buddy Dave (Y2ksomethingorother on the forum) has one of these on his 2013, and I've lusted after it for quite a while. I hate hanging junk on the bars, and I'm too cheap to get a HogTrough. And I don't like the way they look. But this......Perfect. Only problem is that they don't fit the Rushmore bikes thanks to the larger lowers.

So I saw that a guy on HDF had made it work, and decided to give it a shot. Of course, no dealer within 300 miles had one in stock (why would they, not like it's summer or anything), so after a wait, I got one.

Installed it tonight, took 10 minutes. It fits....sort of. As y'all can see, the tab on the bracket hits the painted part of the lower fairing and the arm hits the front part. I haven't unpacked my bench grinder yet, but I'm visiting someone Friday who has one. We'll trim off a bit of the tab, I'll rotate it in towards the bike a bit, and it'll be good to go. No, I don't care that it's hitting the paint now. That part of the bike is invisible to anyone and it won't rust if a bit of the paint vanishes.

With a grinder, this is a 20-minute install on a Rushmore bike.

That's pretty convenient as far as reaching your drink. I use the saddlebag guard bag and use a Contigo insulated cold drink cup. It keeps water cold for like 16 hours. The reach is a bit inconvenient, but not bad once you get used to it.

I also don't like hanging stuff on my bars but at 6'4" I need all the leg room I can get. This works well for me.

I will defer to your apparent expertise on the subject.

If that looks like your ballsack, you might want to see your doctor.
