BOTM Winner, March 2015
I've always been a fan of the low-rider bagger style (I know a lot of folks aren't a fan as well), and I never really cared much for the hard bags that were available as "bolt-ons" for the 900 Custom, so I decided to custom adapt and fabricate what ever it took to get stretched hand laid fiberglass bags and matching fender, intended for a "flock" bike, to fit my Custom. I also set myself a budget of $1,000 for the whole project (including the bags and fender)... I did it... with money to spare, finding a great deal on the hardbags, lids, and fender was a great help... the rest came from ebay mostly. I've attached a photo of where the bike is currently at, if there's interest, I can post pictures of what I had to do to get to this point. I'm currently waiting for my new "old school" rawhide saddle to show up so I can finish the fender installation and make it all look like it was meant to be there. Let me know if I should post further... Thanks for looking.
