Well, I've been putting off doing any real work on the '92 FXR I bought about six months ago. I hate looking at it, but I love riding it. With only about six weeks until the BASH, I figured I had better get my act together and start doing something.
I've collected a few bits over the last few months and nows the time. I dig this Superglide-shaped tank I bought off my friend Junior. I made some mounts for it tonight and adjusted the rear a bit so it sits closer to the backbone now. I'll miss the 6,000 mile range of the stock tank, but I didn't alter any of the stock mounting points, so I can always go back if I decide to ride to Alaska. The seat got dropped off at Duane's house tonight. At least I know one thing on the bike will be right. Now, I need to strip out all the wires, speedo cable, etc that isn't needed anymore and clean a bunch of little stuff up. I think I'll ditch the Sporty headlight and run a little Bates unit. Also gotta clean up the trees, add the shaved dual disc legs and get the other brake side all hooked up. Hoping for a set of our prototype "Chimp" bars in time. Mags need some paint. Coolest thing on the bike is going to be the MCM-Triumph-style fork covers I scored from West Eagle, these things are rad. Still gotta make some pipes too. I should have a big batch of stuff going to powder coat by the end of the week, and then we'll see if I can get it all back together again...
