Awesome work man. It looks really clean. Sorry about the divorce I wouldn't wish one on my worst enemy. But you get through it. Great job. Seriously.

Ha, I just now saw this (your a/c) glad it worked out for ya.

I changed mine up since my Mooneyes A/C post:


It still has the same basic design/mounting method, but I worked with Paul at Spitfire Motorcycles to develop an entire line of them. The baby moon (pictured above) is my personal design.

All of them have the same mounting method, and will accept the K&N that I used on my previous Mooneyes A/C post.

excellent job! Got a couple questions:
do you have the mid controls from before you started? I have a '92 with forward controls and I need to switch to mids. My hip can't take rear sets any longer.

how much foam did you use in the seat? that seat is EXACTLY the kind of seat I want to get for my conversion.

thanks for the inspiration!
