Picked up this 2005 1550 Road King last Thursday, but I kept the Sporty. Hope picture shows up.

Yes the only thing I'm thinking of adding is a crash bar and maybe the Corbin backrest. I really like the Apes. I have 12 inch Apes on the Sporty. These are 16 inch.

I've always thought apes on a RK look kind of odd but I'm not the one riding it so it don't matter. Nice looking bike though.
