the springer will probably be the last thing sadly, cause its so damn expensive! i thought about cutting the frame and using a DNA, but, i like the fact the paughco has a shock and mounts for the fender, and ive heard they run smooth, close to the springer on the cross bones. i dont want to sacrafice too much comfort! haha i like how jesse james put it (i know i know shut up guys) he said "i like to think of my bikes as 50% form and 50% function. no reason i bike can;t look killer but still be fun to ride.. right? im sure some old school guy on a hard tail panhead bobber with a old springer is gonna laugh at mine, but -I LUV XLF!--I LUV XLF!--I LUV XLF!--I LUV XLF!- it, im makin the bike THAT I WANT. so yeah. :-)
