    Sorry to hear Chris.

    Let me know if there is anything I can do.

    Take care of business man... family above all.

    Time to bore you with some BS Harley junk...

    Well I been working on the bikes little by little throughout the week with all this family stuff going on.

    I had the Nightster on the lift already to start to bolt up the parts from her 883.



    The chrome don't match but got it installed anyway.. a temp gauge


    Put on the engine bar and highway pegs



    Got the tach put on... it was a 2 trip event because the damn 1200 speedo bucket is part of the riser clamps vs the 883s are seperate pieces. So I just ordered a new riser top clamp to finish the job


    The windshield really kills the looks but its function over form


    Got the cruiser-mate installed



    Pulled the front fork reflectors



    Smoked out the front blinkers... looks great with the black pods


    Then I ordered some 1157 red bulbs on ebay cause I wanted to smoke out the rears... but HD don't sell red 1157's. Also pulled the reflector off the rear fender.





    Then I finished up some stuff on the "Street Classic".

    During my few trips to the dealer I decided I wanted to pick up a few things to dress it up.

    I picked up the Willie G skull pieces for the gas cap, timing cover, and derby cover




    Then worked on the final pieces... I tell ya while HD directions are far superior to many others... this particular mod was complete choas in the directions. I ended up just looking at the parts and pictures and did it on my own.

    Pulled the map pocket, liner, tourpack, saddlebags, and seat all out/off.






    What was left....


    Then I installed the 2 new fender strut covers, and the quick disconnect adapters. Also the new lisence plate mount




    Slid the new trunk mount onto the bike


    And the bike is back to normal



    But now its detachable... YEA





    I'm very happy the way it all turned out... Can't wait to get some miles in now that the family stuff is calming down and hopefully the weather starts to get better.

    Thanks Berto.

    Stopped by the dealer today for a few things left over from the projects. Ended up with some nice plate bolts and a plate frame for mine...
