Thumbs up sweet bikes for gals

Wandered across this website and can't help but be impressed by the designs and paintwork of these bikes...all geared towards women.

They even build their own custom lady's bike from the ground up - WildKat

http://www.roarmotorcycles.com/new-showroom

Makes me want to run a hot pink pinstripe over the red pinstripe on my bike, which separates the matte white and matte black paint.

And it REALLY makes me want to lower the rear, although only for looks. Not enough money or time to do all the customizing I want to do.

On a side note, I read my first Baggers magazine last night and realized I am truly a bagger at heart. One day I'll have a sweet custom bagger that isn't obnoxious and still rideable!!

Beautiful bikes for sure! Wish I could get one of those "deep" paint jobs on mine. Maybe someday!

Im not very impressed with the bikes personally and their prices, most of it is all bolt on parts and a nice paint job (very impressed with the root beer paint job though.) IF you like your 900 everything comes with time and patience. I'd say first thing you should buy is the service manual (do most of your own trouble shooting) then get a bike jack. If you shop around you can get the lowering kit for about $120. (I had one and later decided to remove it). and for most motorcycle parts if you want it you can make it fit. I love the bagger thing as well. I found some tsukayu strong bags for $41 on ebay, had to make my own mount however and they still need some love with the paint. Also found a bob dron fairing for $125 on craigslist. Getting my lil nine where I want it one piece at a time. I will say I think Roar is genius to target a market like they are with simple mods and great paint.

Mayorblurps, you may want to check out what Bald Marine did to his 900 Custom. He turned it into a bagger and included a lot of step by step pictures. Try this post: https://www.vulcanforums.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=29118 .If it does not pull up do a search on here for 900 Bagger and you should see the post. I want to go the bagger route as well, but I am going to do it with a different bike and leave my 900 Custom alone. Well almost alone.

Not sure what makes them for women only but they are nice, i wouldn't mind turning mine into something similar but i think i want more performance than looks right now.

sweet bikes for gals

I am familiar with this place as I live 10 miles away. They buy wholesale bikes from our dealership (car) and fix them up. Not as "elegant" as you would assume. Be cautious.

Some of those are nice bikes.my blacked out custom had all the looks I wanted except for the low and mean cycles redo of the tailight license section.If you like to see some welldone bikes even though they are yamahas go to pacific coast star. Low and mean full custom conversion would have cost me about $6000.Then I would be afraid to ride it for fear of scratching it.another company I think is blue collar bobbers and blue steel customs has some nice vulcans.The vulcan in your avitar looks like a perfect replacement for the harley nightster.

Bikeless and hating it.
