Well deserved! Very cool, very old-school looking bike. I love spoked rims, but this guy makes them look better than I've ever seen!

what was it before you started?

never mind i just read the title. really nice job. i'm planning on ratting out an old 1500/ wish us luck.

did you have to reset the carbs since you put the straight pipes on it?

i just took the mufflers off of a 2006 750 Vulcan. should i have the carbs re-calibrated? or do i need a restrictor at the heads?

Thanks everyone! Other than the frame and motor everything has been re-done. It's a blast to ride and turns alot of heads. Even from the harley riders....

The pipes still have a 3in baffle in them and I had the carb calibrated so it still runs smoothly. Next task I am wanting to put 21in wheels front and rear and redo the exhaust. Finally found a pipe bender that I can use to create the pipes I want.
