Re:my 2002 hot rod roadie build 1 Year, 5 Months ago  
Jason it looks like you and I have really similar tastes in bikes. I've been wanting to pick up another Road Star and do a sort of hot rod/bobber hybrid, and it looks like you're on a similar thought as me. I saw this bike a while back and fell in love with it:



And then there was this one was posted over on the FB group:







^^^This one was actually a sweepstakes bike that was given away at a show. Wish I could've been the lucky winner for that one...

The main thing I like about them is they're look low, mean, and fast. That hugger rear fender is perfect with the lines, and I love how that seat wraps right into the fender instead of being restricted by the stock seat horns that have been chopped off. I like how your bike looks to be headed in a similar direction. Can't wait to see it all finished up. If it's even half as nice as your bagger, it's going to be killer.

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.




Hey Smoke, is that the front wheel that ended up on the Eagle Riders bike or did you buy one and install it on your hot rod build?

Ok don't hate me but I really don't like the softtail fender. Personally I think that screams "trying to hard" but this is just my opinion. it looks like it sits way to high in the air to give the low slung look you are going for. Personally I would rather have a chopped or bobbed fender back there and nothing up front. The whole point is to strip it down right?

The front turn signal mod looks very good!

Very finished looking and unusual.
