In the past I have looked here for advice from a past blog, if I get stuck, I’ll ask for advice.

ID:	137967 Removed luggage trunk & saddlebags. Included here are photos of saddlebags mounting brackets and how they are bolted together with under fender cross brace. They are mounted on the same lower bolt as the saddlebags crash guards (came off a Harley, but I had to cut & add 2-1/4” of steel rod for the upper mount to reach bolt behind seat.

      Looks very DChopperesk with HD sprinkled in between, if it works go for it.

ID:	139701 Dechromed the spokes with a green scratch pad and hours of elbow grease. My metric axle would not fit my new standard wheel/bearings so I took the axle to a machine shop where it was put on a lathe and trimmed to fit saving myself $$ having to press out new/old bearings and press in new bearings…replaced drive belt & detailed the area.

              How will you fit the bearing in the pulley to the turned down axle?

ID:	139843 The new standard axle fit the metric bearings in the rear drive pulley….I have not figured out how to mate them yet, possibly go to a new classier pulley.
