Question Well...whatya think

I just finished up with this winters mod list for the HD
1. V&H monster round slip ons
2. V&H high flow air cleaner
3. HD stage 1 download(map for you metric guys)
4. Highway pegs
5. La pera bare bones solo seat
6. Carlini 16" gangster apes/ LA choppers braided clutch cable and brake lines

Rode about 100mi Saturday and Sunday. The apes are really comfortable. About 1" above my shoulders with the solo seat and 1" below with the touring seat.

Gonna add hard saddlebags soon

Not bad for an old mans bike.

Nice work. I enjoy cruisers as well and helped a friend build one up recently.

Beautiful bike there, except I hate the bars, big time. But variety is the spice of life.

Kudos and nice.
