February 2010 BOTM Winner pcarrell!

Congrats pcarrell!



I bought my 2001 Kawasaki Drifter 1500 in November of '08. She had the bags, windshield, and pipes on her when I picked her up. She came with a solo seat and a 2up. The badges were all stripped off, so the bike looked rather "naked". Since then, I've added Zambini Bros. emblems, passenger floorboards, floorboard fringe & fringe mudflaps (I made them myself), a tank bib and fender bib, and a '69 Harley tour pack (still looking to do it up with some matching leather and studs) with my homemade brackets, and throttle & lever covers. I also added the new wide whitewall tires and swapped out the clutch spring for a Meanstreak part. Finally, I layed the license plate down and gave it some curve to follow the fender line.

Thanks!

I love it a bunch, but I'd hold my head awful high riding either of the other two bikes I was pitted against. Both of them were exceptional
