June 2012 BOTM Winner, King-Nine!

Congrats King!



My story goes...I purchased my V9 new this January after having switched over from streetbikes. This is my first cruiser, which I really wanted to bob out. I started the transformation within a few weeks of buying it. In fact I recently brought it in for its 600 mile service and the dealer couldnt believe it was the same bike. I joined this forum when I bought the bike, and I'm glad I did. Some of the information I've gotten from you guys has been great. I like reading Poncho's posts because hes so knowledgable and Doughrek has been very helpful.

I had the lower controls shortened, with the heel shift removed, by cutting and rewelding the arms (cant even tell). I also moved the floorboards back 2 inches by customizing the bracket (long grade 8 bolt, aluminum spacers, and some washers), since I'm vertically challenged. I also blacked out some of the chrome trim, in addition to adding accesories. Paint is next.

Anyway, I decided to enter my ride this month, even though I'm relatively new since my birthday is this month. Not that I'm trying to get bonus votes for that, although feel free to if you like. Thanks and good luck to all. Here are the specs and photos;

Year: 2011
Model: Vulcan Classic SE
Engine: 900
Pipes: Frontier Cycle - Britt Motorsports drag style
Seat: Springer
Wheels: Stock spoke
Accesories: Custom shortened controls, modded floorboards, Arlen Ness Big Sucker, Britt style pipes/wrapped, Cobra FI2000R, 10" Santee mini's, Avon air cushion grips, Headlight Visor, BCB kit, side mount plate/tail light, plate stash tube, headlight visor, blacked out trim

Very nice King-Nine! Them bobbers are some cool bikes for sure. That's how I ended up with my 900 custom with the intent to bob it. Since my wife likes to ride along often, no bobby on this one for awhile. Congrats!
