Thanks for all the compliments about my bike. I'll say its decent and that is due to the ideas I've come across in the forum.

My bike was bone stock just just few months ago. Here's a list of things I've done in that time, and some that I plan on doing in the near future, and future.

Things I've done
  1. Forward Controls - Bikers Choice
  2. Stainless Brake Line
  3. Springer Solo Seat - VT Mfg & LaRosa
  4. 10.25" Springs - Pipedreamz
  5. Superbars - Lick's
  6. Chrome Hand grips
  7. Removed Speedo, and Tach
  8. Relocated idiot lights to headlight
  9. Relocate front turn signals to front shocks

Near Future (Before Summer 2008)
  1. Low profile rear view mirrors - JP Cycles, on order
  2. Lower kickstand
  3. Relocate brake light, and license plate
  4. Pipe Dreamz Pipe or Thunderheader (man the sound is sweet)
  5. Bob rear fender
  6. MRR (Modify, replace, or repair) the front fender
  7. Relocate rear turn signals to stock location on rear fender
  8. Front chin (fairing)
  9. Front fly screen (Harley Davidson) ?

Future
  1. Springer fork front end
  2. NHRS 1250 Kit w/engine and transmission overhaul
  3. 21" Front Wheel
  4. Powdercoat rims black, retain chrome wires, or nipples (contrast)
  5. Kuryakan Hypercharger
  6. 4 gallon, 2" stretch tank
  7. Blackout bike

Yeah.
