Default 2008 Night Train Conversion 240 Fender with New Rims and extras

Hello Everyone,

Just finally completed one of my major project phases for my 2008 Night Train. The crazy part is that I still have a long way to go, but it just more small stuff and cosmetics. Anyway, here are the recent changes:

*Upgraded my rear fender to support a 240 rear end
*Changed my rear break to drive side break system
*Added 13 inch Front Disc
*Added 13 inch Calipers
*21 inch Front Wheels with 120 Metzlers
*18 inch Rear Wheels with 240 Metzlers
*Added New Pulley
*Rear Kickstand
*Forward Controls from Battistinis
*Shift Rod from Battistinis
*New Mirrors from JokerMachines
*New Front and Rear Turn Signals which are all LEDs
*Custom Seat from Bitchen Seats )**Note still need to add to more inches of cushion cause my small legs are still far from foot control, PHTDLX called them smurf legs, that bastard)

Here are the images:

great job nixon, really sinister looking scoot. can't go wrong with PM parts. that drive side brake is the nutz! what bars are you looking at? im diggin the drag bars, i changed to 4 inch risers from the stock 6 inch, gives the bike a lower slammed look.

Thanks for the compliments Big Deuce and WillyP. But as far for bars, I'm looking at these small bars from RolandSands, which are called Vintage. They are somewhat near like ape bars but has more of that bobber look to it. As for right now, I really need to work on the seat. It is so uncomfortable to unable sit correctly on my ride. Expensive price to pay when trying to find the right seats.

The bike does feel a little different after the change. Actually major difference from the stock rims and tires, but that was pretty much expected. Performance wise it still kicks butt. Anyway here are the pictures you've asked for:
