To have a bike I could call my own, not some cookie cutter stock bike.
I’ve owned sport bikes before, but I was older now and wanted a decent cruiser.
I bought some mini apes made for an ultraglide with a bend in them to go behind the fairing. It’s the most recognizable change, and I get asked about them all the time lol. They look great , and have just enough behind and height to make riding long distances more comfortable.
The fact that I did this all on my own. I knew hardly nothing about cruiser bikes up until I purchased this one. I was able to thread the cables through the bars without any assistance and hook everything up without a hitch.
My friends and strangers alike always compliment me on it. I still have a couple chrome covers for the transmission and such I need to get, but with 2 daughters in college It is taking a little while to complete. Piece by piece it’ll get there.
