I hadn’t touched one since I went down until This rona stuff hit. Sitting in quarantine bored and they were just staring at me so I got my streetglide put back together and rode for the first time. That felt good sooooo

I installed a 1275 BFH kit which is almost run in. Made a 8" extended swingarm and am trying to work out where to weld on the strut brackets and brackets for the guard. only a week until the first drags since Covid lockdown here in NZ. The way I am going i'm not going to get to the first one.

Thanks. Yeah, homemade pipe. It needs a bit of tidying up but it seems to work ok. Will try different length primaries when I get it on the dyno, I think they need to be shorter. I made it when the motor was a standard 1250.

I’d say you’re close there, triangulate the strut with the frame...I’m going with that theory as well.

Your bike looks awesome.
Where are you putting your oil tank, I'm thinking about making a 5mm aluminum chin fairing tank, are there any pictures on here that you know of?
