Winter Project

Have had my RG for a couple years now and coming from a custom RK, I tought I would do some mods to make it....mine. Still in the process, but will post pics as I go. This is how the bike looked when I first got it.

That is a HD windshield. Measures about 9 - 9 1/2" at the tallest point. Its about to be removed in favor of a Sinister unit.

I liked the Rockford unit that I saw from Yaffe but refused to spend the money that they wanted. I went this route and fabricated my own bezel.

Still working on the actual paint scheme but will use a burnt orange and grey for the primary colors. List of mods thus far:

PM Heathen wheels 21/18
Arnott air ride rear
Progressive 2" drop in front
Sinister tank and side covers
Bad dad rear fender on the way
CVO style bags via Ebay (VERY impressed with the quality for a no name brand)
C&C solo seat/pillion. Modified the solo myself to work with the stretched tank
Rockford head unit. Polk 6.5 and tweeters. Install Yaffe periphial to use hand controls
Big Radius exhaust (Will be selling soon. Going true duals)
Ballistic bars internally wired.
Ness foot controls
PM air cleaner

The wheel really sets that bike off. Looks great.
