But this next bike... (no offense) all I can say is I hope this is just the mock up!
I did try putting my bracket in front of the tank like this guy did but it just didn't look right. In my opinion, it's just too high. I also don't like the fact he took off the housing. I would be worried about moisture getting in there and it just doesn't look finished. On a Rat bike that's one thing, on this new Nightster, well... to each his own as the saying goes.
This is where I got the idea for my sprocket cover. I found these pictures on the photobucket website under the photo stream BOND--007.
He put way more holes in his but the outcome is awesome! I was going to shave down my cam covers like BOND--007 did but I decided to wait until the end of the riding season.
I found a step by step example of how to do it yourself on the Street Choppers website
Here is the web address if you want to take a look.
BOND--007 also had previous pictures of his bike with the original cast aluminum rims. I had always wanted to paint mine black and once I saw his newer posts (after he painted the rims) I knew I was on the right track. BOND--007's sporty is really well done, it's worth your while to check it out.
The air cleaner on this model of the Nightster is black and gave me the idea to just paint mine for now. However, I am looking for a 'Spade' or 'Snaggletooth' to replace my Harley-Davidson emblem on the plastic cover. In the future I may look at changing it to a velocity stack.
Harley-Davidson has just unveiled it's new Screamin' Eagle heat shields for the Nightster. They are just over $200. The only problem... I need shields with a cross piece.
I found this picture on the XLForum website (I don't know the owner or who posted it).
After a little photo shop magic, PRESTO! A drilled cross piece. It helped me visualize what my pipes would look like and I decided to go for it.
