thanks,will make the incision doc......will post the before and after pictures when my project is finished,am planning a bare bones bobber that will get me from Ireland to Sturgis before i'm 60.......six years to go and what the shipping costs will be has my wife smirking....negativity,the mother of failure
Sturgis before 60 is a good goal.
I'm 57 and my 27 year old son and I were talking yesterday about possibly riding out there next year. (we live in NH). He's a bit worried about his ass. I told him to buy a real good seat.
Maybe I'll see you there. There is always a thread just before so XLF members can hook up.
I bobbed about an inch and a half off mine (not enough for most people to even notice), and the first rainstorm I was caught in, I felt water slinging up my lower back. I'd just trim it for the look I wanted and not worry too much about the water.
I never wanted a Harley, but I always wanted a Sportster.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it (especially if you don't know what you're doing). Most Sportster problems are owner-induced.
