    OK, so getting ready for Phase 2, this winters work. I have some major house projects planned so I am going to try to balance the 2 to keep everyone happy. I really want to roll this baby out next year totally done, well at least to the point of anybody who looks at it. There may be a few small things to do but here we go.......

    Front Air Ride, new lower legs and install center stand
    New stereo and front speakers
    New front signals
    New windshield (cut down one I had for this season)
    New mirrors, grips, and switch covers
    New gas cap
    Finish dash, and redo bag corners (now that I know where it hits)
    New floorboards, brake lever and shift lever
    Make new seat pan (2 piece) and get professionally upholstered
    New swing arm bushings
    New paint and pinstriping
    Get front brake caliper powder coated

    I am also thinking of doing some custom work to the inner and outer fairing, but that will be dependent on time. Shope's new Indian build with the tan and black really has questioning if I stick with the gold. The gold is great, and cagers definitely see me, but that tan color just screams old school.

    So I didn't do shit to the bike last winter. I did recently install a new Sony stereo, hand control adapter, and Pioneer speakers from OneSlickGlide. I also just installed a manual centerstand that I bought used here last fall. Love the stand, I definitely feel cooler airing out onto that. Only problem now is that I want it lower. I just paid the tax man so after I recoup some savings I am going to get new grips and mirrors, then a seat. This temp seat is killing me. But before I can do that I need to figure a way to mount a tourpak, and make it detachable. I am not sure if the old Ultra tourpak will look right so I might have to get a razor.

    When I built the side covers I envisioned wire mesh on them, but didn't put much time into figuring out what to use, yesterday I can across a drywall patch that was the perfect solution.

    So I just installed a Sta-Bo 1 swing arm bushing and stabilizer kit, and front motor mount. Wow, what a difference, this old tourer is a new bike. Here is post with more info on the kit.

    I also had the "dreaded click" from the starter, had been this way since I owned the bike, I thought it was the battery and finally broke down and bought a new 420cca battery, then it happened again, press starter and click. So, I cleaned the solenoid and added a push button cover to it. I also added another relay to provide straight 12v power from the battery to the solenoid. So now my start button activates the new relay and bam, it fires right up.

    Great idea. I used drywall fiberglass tape and airbrushed it lightly than pulled the tape. Looks like mesh. But your idea is so much better looking. Thanks for sharing

    Nice job brother. The mess adds a nice flair to the side covers.

    Thanks guys, the adhesive wasn't quite strong enough, so thinking I will epoxy them on.

    I just finished installing an LED headlight bulb in my red dot headlight. The headlight I've run for a year, picked up from ebay, the bulb I ordered from Amazon for $15.
