    Consider building a double rod sissy bar which is a lot more stout and puts less stress on the front fender mount like I did on my Honda.

      I present my 2nd king and queen and my first ever 2 piece king and queen. Got it all tacked up. I'm out of sheet metal to do the sides so that will come later I'm going to clean these welds and make sure it's solid

          So it's been a crazy week working late a few night's. I haven't touched the bike until tonight. I have put the bumper on the jeep, redone the entire exhaust system and replaced the trans mount. Been prepping for hunting season that started yesterday (Oct 2). And had to change the ol ladies oil. But tonight I got back in the garage and back after the bike. Got some more sheet metal and put sides on the seat, also cut out the door and hole for the stash box under the passenger seat.

            So I mentioned I went to Deadbeat retreat and picked this bike up but I never talked about what happened. Let me show you instead, one video is full speed one is slow motion from different angles. I have a known torn AC joint and pending MRI to find out what else is shot. It has been motivation to push through as much as I can as quickly as I can because I am facing a huge set back of another shoulder surgery.

                No joint required.

                  It may not fix it, but it will make you forget its broken.

                Here is a side shot of the rear portion of the seat. I hate the photo limitations on here it makes it difficult to add photos from a high quality camera.

                  I'd suggest a 3rd party image hosting site like Imgur. You can link them here and allow a very high resolution. As I see your posts on another site it would allow you to link from both sites without uploading each pic multiple times. Just a suggestion.

                Brad_G Thanks for the tip I will look into that site, I have been posting to 3 different forums.

                  So I found the old forum from Grease when he began this project before I bought it from him.

                      Hahaha deadbeat was a blast. I been spending a bunch of time on the bike and neglecting this forum.

                      So I got my tank from TC bros and had Fatman Custom Motors put a "soda" holder in it for me. Built some up swept exhaust starting with oem headers and made pie cuts to bring them closer to the frame and raise the front cylinder up. Got my sissy bar insert cnc cut from Dirty Builds and my tail light from Hypnic Jerk Customs Click image for larger version
