Ya might have a POTM with one of those, pic one and enter it in
Oh, and the sissy bar is on backwards, top bend should be to the rear, just sayin
Nice bike! There is a guy close to me that has one. I can't remember what number it is.
Bwg you're sur about the sissy bar? Now that you're saying it seems logical. I bought it with the sissy mounted that way. I.ll'reverse it, thanks
Photos are not that good, forgot my camera that day and took them with my mobile phone
If you reverse it, take note to the location of the slit in the collet if the sissy bar is tapered on the mounting end, make sure the slit in the collet is facing forward or rearward, don't have it at the thin portion of the strut, when you tighten it down, it will expand the collet in the strut and I cracked my strut because of this.
I think the 2nd pic is a great shot with the water and boats
Thanks for the pic ( posted it on POTM )
Ok for the sissy bar, thank you for the indication, i'll be carefull
Wouldn't facing inward be best?
That way the expansion forces would be directed along the length, not width.
You are parked in a pedestrian walk area, isn't that against the law?
Where's the weakest points on the strut, you definitely don't want that area expanding.
You could try it that way, it only cost me $150 for a new strut years ago. I personally cut the tapper off and threw the collets away and went back to the original way.
First time I've ever seen a sissy bar mounted that way...I'd guess it's low mileage too?
@ Th3infamousl:Yes around 15.000 km
@Mr Wright: only for 2 minutes and there was nobody around
@Everybody: seems the best I leave the sissy the way it is installed?
Nice ride Marc The way I feel it, It's like your house, you make the payments, you make the rules. Set that bike up however you like it! It's still a sweet lookin ride.
Wondering how many bikes are left ont the 100 that came out of the factory of BD , mine is 17/100
@chubs: Thanks, you're right
Dead Dog has one here in Gladstone Australia.
Don't hear or see him much these days.
My friend at the Harley Davidson in Orlando has the same edition motorcycle and still looks and runs fine.
You have a pic of his bike ?
Dog 10 here;
10/100 is Mt. Wolf, Pa.
I can probably get a picture. I'm not sure what number out of 100 his is.
