81 custom

Postby muttleatherwrx20 » Sun Dec 04, 2016 2:18 pm

New to the forum. I typically tinker and ride early model HD but recently picked up this gem. Its an 81 custom. My original plans were to hardtail the rear but couldnt commit to messing up such a straight frame. I have always appreciated the stripped down look of cafe racers and decided thats the plan. So far this bike has been quite the undertaking. Wiring was toast,carbs need some work,replace this and that. The list goes on and on. Ive got lots of parts that are no longer needed. I would like these to got to a good home as most of the swap meets i attend in the amca are british and american scoots and very few japanese buyers this forum may be useful. I have the front ferring,rear cargo rack, trunk, and drive back rest available if anyone is interested. I am glad i found this forum and am sure to be a frequent user here.

Possibly?? I have a new windshield still in the plastic plus the one thats on it now. I would love for this stuff to go to someone that could use it.

The rooster faring was little more than a place to put a car stereo.
