98 road glide

This winter i decided to try to scrape some of the ugly off the old girl. I repainted the whole bike including the inner fairing and have been adding some chrome and HID headlights and LED Halo's. Here are a before picture and then the progress so far.

Looking good. I like the new paint. What's next for the old girl?

Great looking scoot! Don't go to deep into that motor rebuild the EVO is bullet proof until the mods get crazy. Best mod I did to my EVO was a Mikuni carb and cam (Andrews) dont remember which one. Mikuni will give you easy cold start and easy to tune.

I dont plan on modding it just a refresh. When i changed the pipes i could see the valve guides are leaking a bit but i am not going to worry about that until next winter since it so close to riding season. I do believe it already has a cam from the previous owner.
