Lindsey Lohan build. Don't judge!
After a little peer pressure the last few days, I decided to do my first build thread. I built most of my bike for one reason and one reason alone. I walked into a custom shop in Dallas, Texas to ask about a paint job. I had looked at hundred of hundred of different styles. I had narrowed it down to 3 one off jobs that i liked the scheme to follow. The owner said "Sure, bring the bike we will will get it done!" He followed up with some other stuff that the paint would cost 6-8k with a 40 hour labor charge just under $3,400. I smiled and walked out. I went online the next day and bought me a direct lift to begin my two month journey.
I did most of the back end first just to build confidence on the front fairing. I watch plenty of videos on YouTube to help get me prepared like I have dont this before. I look at bags and fenders until I had joint pain every evening. I just stared pulling parts to get powder coat first and decide later.
I looked on several forums about suspension. Suspension is like beer flavor. No one ever likes the same unless its free. SO until I get sponsored, Air Ride it is. I chose JNR Designs out of Oklahoma. Jason is part owner, will text on any day of the week, and is super helpful.

Custom paint shop.
I chose the 21" Ion wheel from Wanaryd. The were very helpful. I love the look of the 23" and up but didn't want to rake it. I raked my old Dyna with a lot of heartache. It also had horrible road manors. SO I leave well enough alone now days when I have a bike I plan to ride the country on.
