Default I am very excited

Finally figured out how I will turn this second EN500LTD (my old parts bike) into a Captain America chopper.

Found the strut brackets to brace a high sissy bar, found a new back fender top cut down, and found a King&Queen seat (or, if it doesn't work, how to make my own in the alternative).

ALSO ... found the 10" over pipes and someone to rake the front so I don't hafta pay $2,000 for a kit.

I figure 18 degrees and 10" over stock should make it look like Fonda's chopper. I will still be keeping the suspension though - no struts. I am too old for that hard of a ride.

This is gonna be fun. In about 6 months or so my bare EN500 frame will look like this:



well, with some Vulcan 500 LTD changes obviously. Like a radiator, shocks, pipes on both sides and quite a bit lower (but up and with fishtails).
