Stupid question....every bike I see, whether it's custom or stockish, still has those stupid HD stickers all over the frame downtube. I mighta kinda peeled every single sticker off mine. Surely I devalued the bike by about $19,000. lol

That's where the VIN is. I did that to a bike years ago. Ended up sitting in a parking lot for an hour waiting for some cops with nothing better to do decide I had'nt stole it.

VIN is also stamped on the neck. I read the sticker and didn't see anything that I deemed important.

I ripped all my stickers off of the tubes also. Vin is stamped in the kneck and I also have the vin sticker stuck onto a piece of paper and stashed in my solo bag.

Speaking of stickers... I was bored in the garage today and was sick of looking at the lame factory cleared tank decals.

I traced out a template of the side of the tank and cut out a decal for each side.

I used some left over black vinyl from my motocross number plate backgrounds.

Looks pretty good for now, until I decide my tank situation. Best part is it cost me nothing, and zero downtime.

So I was doing my usual Craigslist troll and came across a 2 up seat for sale. They said it was a factory seat but I knew it wasn't. I ended up scoring this Sundowner seat for $90. It's not as ugly as I expected, didn't ride on it yet but it's like a couch. This will ONLY be used when taking the girlfriend out or if I'm going on a long ride and decide to be a bitch about it lol. Pretty happy with my score.

For some reason your pics never show up for me, but if I quote your post I can see the photobucket link. What gives?

No idea. You're not the first person to have problems with my photobucker pics.
