Club style vulcans?

I know I might catch flack for this... but I love the look of a club style Harley. The square body seat, 2-1 exhaust, tall straight risers, and those goofy tall fairings took a while to grow on me. If you're unsure of what I'm talking about, look up dynamite crew on IG.

Has anyone seen a club style vulcan or metric cruiser? I would love to throw a biltwell Murdock and a tracker bar on my VN800 but they're made for Harleys only. The mustang fastback looks as close to a squarebody seat as you can get.

Surely I can't be the only one interested in this? And if I am, welp oh well. Let me know!

Not on Instagram, how about a pic so we know what youíre talking about.

As for this fairing that you love; what about fabricating some brackets for it? I picked up a 2016 street glide fairing off craigslist for cheap and am putting that on my Ď95 VN88. Pretty sure you canít buy brackets to do that either

Ok, I gotcha. Donít know why you would catch flak for that, but then again Iím one for making your bike what you want.

Canít help you much on anything but the fairing brackets. My 88 came with a windshield, and Iím making brackets that will fit on the original windshield fork mounts.



Just an angle grinder and some files will get you there. If you have a bench grinder and a drill press that will speed up the process.

Now Iím just bending some round stock and welding washers on where the bolt points are on the fairing, and then welding the round stock to the brackets. Voila, street glide fairing on an 88
