The vintage NOS and Screamin' Eagle stickers are from years of accumulating stuff, and when I ran the squeeze on my stock Ninja 900 in the 80's . Either way, I think it sure is a cool scoot for a 17 year old kid's first street bike (that he bought, cleaned and serviced himself, BTW). The hula girl bobble on the tank gets more attention than the bottle, though, LOL!
Yeah, I noticed the hula girl right off the bat, too. Does look good, though. Thanks for sharing the info.

Default How to install fork gators so water will not get in.

1- use the right size paint can plastic lid. Drill a hole thru the top with a hole saw. Silicon this to the fork slider indent where the chrome cap rests.
2- zip tie the fork boot to the paint can lid at the base and the fork tubes on top​​​​​​​

We eyeballed the screw locations, started with a pilot drill and worked up to the screw head size to get them out and make it serviceable. Lighting was accomplished with these ebay license plate LED bolts wired to the empty socket inside the taillight normally reserved for the FL style rear fender red tip light. Vibration worries shouldn't be an issue with the cast metal Emgo frame around the plate that also covers the new mount screw access holes. I blacked out the top of the tail light with some flat black vinyl, but I think the bottom needs to be done also. When I do my Low Rider, I'll tape off the rear lens and mist some black inside to reduce the red edges seen from the outside. Total investment = $15.

Sorry for the big pics, I don't know how to shrink them from saved album pics.


No radio required or desired.

2004 883 cleaned, serviced, lightly modified to taste and ready to ride, spring 2018. It's a great machine.
Love the touring shocks. They make my 240lb *** feel like it's sitting on a sofa.

240 lbs on an .883? Hope you at least have a Screamin' Eagle kit coming!
I like the motto there: I tell people I only listen to the Harley song, on WPIP.

Well I don't have an 883. My Super Glide has touring shocks and I love them, super comfy. 6'1" 240 makes "super comfy" difficult sometimes.

Ah, corrected. What you probably also have is occasional Monkey Butt!
I was like that at 215.
