Hey guys, I have some changes in mind for a winter project.
I have a 2000 800B (classic) and my plan is to make a bagger out of it. Im going to change the pipes to a 2 into 1 and put some nice big hard bags on.
What are my options for a bat wing? Im comfortable with having to fab a bracket but what would be a good piece to start with? How about this one. It lists the 800A as compatible, shouldnt I be able to modify it to make it work?
Im not familiar with the 800a front end.
I put an older HD batwing on my 800A, the upper covers would have been in my way to do it the easy way, could easily remove them or use large stainless hose clamps around them.
The stuff that'll fit a 1500 classic will fit an 800 classic as well. They share almost a 100% interchangeable parts list on th forks.

In addition to all the options already mentioned, the Memphis Shades Batwing is compatible with a lot of bikes. Since you mentioned making your own brackets, you may also want to check Wide Open Customs and Hoppe. Neither of those specify the 800 on their website but you might be able to make it work.
