Default Rocker-C Build

Decided to show my "build-progress", all started in 2009 where I installed a bunch of stuff to replace some of the dreadful HD.

First steps where some chrome upgrades and additions:

Grips and pegs
Shifter, brake and gear-stick levers for Bullet style
Installed the Heartland conversion EZ_R with custom-covered by Danny Gray seat
Lowering bolts for the suspension
Added their mirrors and indicator lights
TD-products license plate holder
HD Chin spoiler
Chrome belt cover
Chrome brake calipers
Vance and Hines 2-2 w/Big city queit baffles
HD handlebars
HD "chrome" control lines
Tassels on the break/clutch levers from Capt'n Itch

So everything was fine.... (or was it?)

Soon the rear suspension was replaced with Shotgun Shocks' airride (what a great improvement, I was lucky my kidneys survived the lowering bolts) and the front was lowered somewhat with progressive springs also added were:

A 21" replica front wheel from Paul Yaffe
Heartland 21" front fender
a chrome 18x8" chrome rear wheel
MotoX oil tank

So all happy again, right?

no... added a new handlebar (local made mini ape) and the front fairing. Also replaced the short rear fender with a longer one from Heartland.

But then I saw the engraving on ink83's project and that kicked me off again.

So the rocker covers and housings, the cam cover and a few bits came of and are now with Catur in Indonesia for engraving. In the mean time getting the following done:

Primo Open Belt drive (side covers with Catur for Engraving)
Footboards custom made by TD Products
parts to made out of brass: (pegs and grips amongst others)
lining some stuff up for copperplating

will start adding pictures of stuff as they come back to me!

Nice Rocker C. I hope when I'm finished with mine that it will look as good as yours. Waiting for my 16 inch Lightning Bar Ape Hangers from BR Bars right now. Will install a 3 inch tank rise as soon as there in.

Sorry but that is an obvious contradiction!

Not a huge fan of the Heartland kit, but it's looking good man. I love seeing Rockers get some love!

Hi Sarah,...

I used a 2" tank lift.

Will have to look up which one...
