my 2002 hot rod roadie build 2 Years, 1 Month ago  
still not a whole lot to report as im paying off stuff yet i cant buy to much yet but im starting to make some cheaper changes while i wait

how she started.


i got the led kuyakyn bullet lights that im mounting into the upper fork covers. right now they are at a slight angle due to the tapper of the fork cover but i will be welding in a sleeve for the bolt to go through giving a solid and straight mounting point for the turn signals.







wire exits the inside of the fork cover. the wire bends around the fork tube but has plenty of breathing room


also i scored a custom world international side plate brand new on ebay for $50 never even opened up! reail is over $300!!




also scored a pro one lower tree cover for $50 dont have the turn sigs in it but hey beggers cant be choosers i guess



some of you seen that im mounting a oil pressure gauge in the side cover. the one in the siver clamp with the hose attatched is the one going in the side cover.





bub stubbies (thank you jake)



external coil mount video with relocated ignition key swap (click pic)



soft tail style rear fender, i still need to fiberglass myself a tail light housing. i intend on doing a barons bobbed front fender.

Re:my 2002 hot rod roadie build 2 Years, 1 Month ago  
im debating on if i will air ride this one or just wing it with race techs up front. i think im just gunna do a standard suspension on this one. but lowered so the tire tucks into that rear fender a bit.

I have the barnett sr-2 spring conversion for the clutch as well as the race tech front springs, all parts to rebuild the front forks and new neck bearings on a shelf. The front end will need some love before i do that though. Either rechromed or powdercoat. I went in with the intent to powdercoat but my chrome junky side is twisting my arm pretty hard right now

+1, that bike is gonna be fast nice ride brother. So since you relocated the ignition to the side what are you gonna do with the key hole at the top?

Turbo wont happen this winter. I will be happy if i get it to the point of riding it next year i intend on doing a tank change. Looking at a smaller more streamlined tank right now. If i dont do a tank swap then i will likely either mod the tank so it dont use a dash or make a new fiberglass dash for the factory tank. Cheap in a pinch option will be a cig lighter in that hole
