I'm thinking of going with a chrome front end. I know of the wiley shiny and ness hot legs (smooth). If I do the wiley shiny kit, I'll also do the flush axel kit.

What are my options and who has the best prices?
Who else makes one that's within reason?

I put the Willy Shinys lower sliders on my bike and at that time Willy Shiny had the best prices. I had the chrome front from Willy Shiny for more than 2 1/2 years and they are still in great shape.

My vote would be for the ness hot legs......

They can be had for a pretty good price online, are a true hidden axle setup with a rounded bottom (bullnose)

Buy the time you buy a set of chrome OEM style legs, a chrome flush mount axle and a flush axle cap....your damn near at the same cost of a set of Ness legs AND still have the same "OEM look"

Just my $.02

I have to agree with the ness legs. Although willy shiney does a great job(have his wheels). The look of the smooth forks makes a huge difference. Stay away from american suspension lowers though. Had to send the first pair back because of staining in the chrome and the send pair was awful to install. The fit was really bad, had to grind off ears of the caliper to make them fit and stripped out the fender screws trying to mess with it. Good luck!

I was just looking at the american suspension ones, they are a little cheaper. Thanks for the advice!

Another question... Who makes a nice set of smooth chrome cowbells? If I replace the legs, I'm doing those too.

Willy Shinys fork legs look great on the bike and for $200 for the pair they even look a lot better than the Ness Hot legs at $550 to $599 a pair.
You can get the chrome top cowbell from HD and it wasn't too bad on cost and if you call forum member PC Pain (Jon) you will get a forum discount.
When I chromed my front end I did it for around $300 total using parts from Willy Shiny and HD.

Iron mark, he stated in his first post that if he went the Willy Shiny route he was also going to get the flush mount axle......add a a flush lower axle block and chrome lowers your at the same damn price LOL

Ness legs are a hell of a lot cleaner looking (if your happy with your OEM style, great :thumbup: ) and can be had for $500 online, hell I think I paid $460 shipped for the ones on my current bike. Add some chrome cow bells......good to go

As for the American Suspension legs, MAKE SURE you get the new style if you go that route :eek: the original style fender mounts used 4 small machine screws to hold the fender mount on to the legs SMH the new versions have 2 counter sunk bolts, same setup as the Ness legs......just an FYI
