V-Rod with RoadGlide conversion

I realize that this is a RoadGlide forum and that this will not be that popular here but... Here are a few pics of a Night Rod Special that I converted last year. I have since ridden this bike all over the lower 48 states. Just wanted to share!

That's nice! How is the riding range? Can it do 150+ miles on a tank? It looks like it's designed that way. I always thought the V-Rod motor would be a great platform for the touring line. Good job, you probably didn't expect such a good reception here eh?

Don't be afraid of living with an open mind,,, your brains will NOT fall out!

Personally, I love it. Only thing I'd want to change is the rear fender, to make it conform more with the bags.

That's bad ass! I agree about the rear fender, but I've ridden a few VRods and they rock. You did a great job. Saw a couple of them at SWIII and they were really nice. What kind of mile range do you get?

Love it! I really wanted to buy a breakout and convert it just to be different. You did a pretty good job on that and I would guess it runs pretty well. Be great if you could bring it to Kerrville to see it in person!
