Sneak peak of my winter project bike. Lowered the from 2 inches and added a 21" wheel and Arlen Ness composite fender. Still need to get the light bar and rear lowering kit done up then I'll shoot more pics.

Just a standard LA Chopper 16" ape, its really comfortable. Just installed the new front pulley so now I can ride 80mph on the freeway flawlessly too. Im really psyched on how it turned it, its the first metric cruiser I have ever owned.

Nice. What kind of cables did you used for the apes and where did you get them from? I've been thinking of upgrading to apes for a while.

This project is sponsored by Baron's, so I used their cable kit and bars. La Choppers owns Barons, so it was easy to put a package together that worked. I also used a black riser set with a 1-piece clamp so everything stays in place when Im riding hard. I have always loved 16" Apes, they are the perfect size bar.....although, riding 80mph + for an extended period of time is tiring. Ive found that this bike even with the bigger fron pulley still has a freeway sweet spot at 70-75 mph. much faster and you are fighting the wind to hold on.

How much did it cost for your front wheel to be done using ur hub? Did u do anything to the back? Can they use the back hub and make it a 240?

Sponsorship? How'd you manage that? Wish I could get someone to sponsor my creativity LOL

Hey, that looks pretty cool. I'm spying a chromed rotor on that machine. Now can you elaborate on it a bit? I've searched high a low for different more aggressive rotors for my 900 and haven't found anything. Chromed rotors like that might work on mine. I like em'.
