Thanks
I figured you made it since I spent the rest of last night searching for it.
It looks fantastic.
All there is to choose from is a mid century design tuna can and bulky leather bags the industry thinks you like.
Harley is moving toward a more modern design and unfortunately there are not many storage options to match.

That was my thought to, I wanted to keep it as simple and slick as possible, not bulcky in any way. In my opinion the Bob is no bike to chop or whatever, there are enough other models to do so in my opinion.
For example my Sportsters have a ape on it, my Breakout is lowered with airride, a big tire for looks and she is one of the nicest Harleys I own but is also **** to drive, for me it is just a eyecatcher.

Thanks,

I also want to say that the axle covers are really one of, I have made these completely myself from scratch, they are solid aluminum that I've polished and they are inspired by the derby cover with the bolts

Nice work! I can't even get out of my driveway. Even if I could there is too much crap on the roads yet. Probably be another month or more here before any riding.

Very clever with that pistol case for a toolbox, MoneyFor. Thanks for posting up the details.

Nice Bob, looks like a nice scenic riding area too. I've always heard the roads in Spain and Portugal are amazing to ride, assuming you go visit and rent a bike. Wonder if that's possible there?

Wow, nice match to the brake rotor.
