Whoa, what seat is that!?! I have been
looking for a new seat for my ‘18 Deluxe forever...

Re: the mirrors... I have the Arlen Ness Mini Ovals on mine that I mounted under the bars. There’s a pic of my bike on this thread someplace.

Been busy blacking out mine. Since this photo I've installed black shorty levers and got a Fat Bob primary to get rid of the hole for the mid controls. Next will be black hubs, smoked lenses and headlight trim.

It's the NEW Saddleman Solo Knuckle. It's not even on their website yet. I got one of the first ones! Look them up and you'll see "coming soon" as the part number - email them to order.

Thanks, my man! I just sent them an email...

Peace.

Thats the Lottermann's Stiletto fender. Unfortunately I don't believe they ship to North America, I had inquired about one for my Breakout at one point.
Fender is here:

Nice ride indeed!

Super basic as I've been slow on my wrenching thus far this year, but I put on a quarter fairing. Bought the Harley one and an "xmft" or something off Amazon. Figured I'd have both in case the Amazon one was shit. Turned out it was nicer than the dang Harley one. Tons of overspray on the backside. It states unfinished on the back, but come on. It looked like hell. I'd rather they taped it and left bare plastic than what did ship. Meanwhile, the cheapie was finished reasonably well, with lower quality hardware, but also shipped assembled, instead of having to bolt a ton of stuff together. Overall I was happier with the "junk" fairing and sent back the Harley one.

Bung King bracket kit was only OK. Some dodgy powder coat on the headlight lift bracket, and I had to dig for some washers to take up the rest of the bolt depth, as I don't think they drilled the bracket deep enough. Either that or they didn't use a flat tap. Two washers under the bottom triple was enough to take up the slop.

But once bolted on, it looks pretty good. I'll have to fiddle with it to get the alignment perfect, but it's close as it stands today. I've also ordered a laminar lip to add, to hopefully cut the wind noise a touch.

Very nice and I'll be sure to look out for when you post pics with the new wheels. We have the same color Deluxe.
