Tribute build for are Uncle and dad

Hi, My brother posted on here about are uncle passing away and showed every one some pics of how we put his 03 road glide inside the funeral home to give him the send off he would have liked. My uncle Rich left me his bike and after talking with my brother we decided to build it in to a real sweet tribute to both him and are dad who passes away along time ago now.

The bike is a 2003 anniversary RG that are uncle had ordered new it now has 94,000 miles on it and the only thing ever done to it was we did a cam chain and tensioners around 70k other then lot of tires and oil changes .

the plans for the bike are to make it as clean and smooth as possible with a nice red and black two tone paint job extended bags, 21" fat 50 front wheel, 10" black monkey bars and lower it a inch with progressive suspension. that is the just of it there will be many other things done but I have wrote enough for now. please give us any ideas and input as we go along

Welcome to the forum. That was a great send off for your uncle. I think what you and your brother are doing is awesome. Keeping the bike in the family and modding it. I'm sure your Uncle is smiling while you're Gliding. Enjoy it !!!
