First off, your bike looks awesome. Second, good thought about risers and bars. I was thinking about switching my Street Bob from the mini-apes to low rider bars, but was concerned that the low rider bars may be too low. The height on my mini-apes was very comfortable.

Valleyofthegun... Sorry if I high-jacked this thread. I think (hope) that I am asking similar questions to what you were inquiring about,

I have a few questions. What is a good height for a club style rear shock. I see guys going as high as 15" or even 15.5. If you go 15" do you have to get longer fork tubes to level the bike out or are stock long enough. I wouldnt think they would be but I'm still learning. I had bought my bike from a guy that had laid it down. I had to break down and rebuild my entire front end. I debated doing dual discs right off the bat but I passed which I am totally regretting now. Can anybody recommend a really good master cylinder to run duals? I'm also going to do a two into one exhaust race pipe. I'm going to hold off doing a chain conversion for now though. I don't plan on wheeling my bike so I don't think I need it quite yet. Is there any other tips anybody can give from learned experience before I tear into my bike? Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Here is my bike now. I have quite a bit of work ahead. Need mags, duals, need to put my mid glide trees back on, new risers and bars, a farring, new seat rear suspension. I have emulators up front already . New exhaust. I am going to trade and buy as many used parts as possible
here is a old school vetter fairing for sale I saw on the internet that might look good on that bike I have seen these on dyna's before and don't look too bad

Also on the master cylinder I'd just find one from a newer low rider with dual fronts and call it a wrap. Try to keep it simple. Hope this helps a little. Any other help I'll try to help.

Mine with 2 over fronts and 14" rear.
That is so true! it will end up being definitely too high. I have to say that is a matter of taste tho (leaving aside the fact that you need to be really tall in order to go around with it lol)

WOW Your bike is awesome, man!
I am loving those upside-down front forks and the Brembos! Looks like you swapped wheels too, I bet you saved a lot of wheight.
Well done!

Thanks man! Yeah, the wheels are considerably lighter than the OE. These are aluminum, but are only a couple pounds heavier than a set of carbon BSTs I have at the shop that I compared them to.

Nice! I was looking into those during my sport bike days but at the end they do not come cheap and Italian roads conditions kept me from getting them.

Thanks for all the info. I plan on building my bike little by little.
I'm going to address my front end first. I am currently running fat bob trees but i still have my mid glide trees. I just need to powder coat them. The only thing is, i notice alot of folks that build their bikes club style often trade out their entire 49mm front end for a 39mm narrow glide front end. I have never ridden a narrow glide 39mm. Are theymore nimble as far as turning or are guys just going narrow 39mm to lighten the front for doing wheelies. Damn i really wish Harley would let you rent used bikes so a person could decide what they want and don't want in a bike before they invest.

who the hell does that? Lol 49mm to 39 would be a downgrade. You can very easily wheelie on a 49mm bike who told you that?

And fyi it took me 4 years to get my bike to where it is today. Long proce$$ of trial and error for parts lol
