Just the very side covers I'd be looking for... where in heck can I get a set of those?!?!? Been looking like forever!

They are fiberglass, had them for quite a while now and really like them. YOu have to move things around a bit but I even managed to kit my key switch in the right side.
Got them from SS Custom Cycle.

I like the side covers too, and saw them on SS Custom. But didn't know how nice they looked til your bike. Are they easy install without adding the ignition?

Real easy. As I remember it nothing has to be changed in location but you have to rearrange things under the cover. I chose to put my key there since I pulled the tank off.
All I know is the covers are nice and tight and make the center of the bike much thinner.

I doubt that was 'accidentally' made into that, but:



AND - FINALLY a Boulevard windshield that looks like it belongs on a Roadstar.


I'm fooling with the idea of tinting the windshield a dark gray or black to see if it further disappears in to the background.

That would be pretty cool, especially with the 2-tone gray & stripe.

I'm a big fan of the look of the Bolt. Your Roadie looks awesome.

Can you post a picture of the drive-train - so we can see the open pulley setup?

Here you go added a couple shots to my photobucket....excuse the bike not being clean by the way.
I painted the pulley black a few years ago. The chrome bolts are fake. People look at it and think they hold it on..... missing the giant black nut in the middle.
