I am keeping my shocks. My back is too old for a rough ride like that. Plus I still think I can make it look decent even using rear fender braces.
Thinking about welding the sissy bar to the rear fender braces and putting an "X" brace on the sissy bar for support (just below the little bar for my tail light and tag frame). Then I will glass in a King and Queen seat pan onto the OEM seat pan and affix that to the sissy bar by some removeable clips.
Gonna be awesome.
