Default 07 Nightster Cafe Project

Just finished up my 07 Nightster. Last year the bike received the RSD treatment (clipons, light mount, coil mount, etc). This winter did the following:
Tail section/seat from Trans-moto.com
Zippers Chain Conversion
Chainsickles rear sets (new style)
VROD Muscle Rear Shocks (13.5" stock, these will be replaced once funds allow, too stiff)

looks really good man! good job. Would you have a side shot of the whole bike to see how the line of the tail section blends in with the bike?

Your brother-in-law Southofheaven posted it up on the Triumph Forum and it has been equally well received. Nice blend of classic British cafe and Americian muscle. Well done!

I like it. Must be really easy to do wheelies. That rear sprocket is huge compared to my 48 tooth. What is it. Fender, seat, and front looks great. How much did you give for the FXRS shocks. I have a set I want to sell and would love to know the starting point.

Thanks for the comments all. It's a 52 tooth sprocket. The shocks I paid $130 shipped.
