PostSubject: 57 Rider's latest mods   Mon Oct 04, 2010 11:47 pm

Forum member 57 Rider is a friend of mine on Facebook, I said I would post some pics here for him. He's been busy doing some mods to it, including a chopped rear fender, side mount plate & light, & more, I'll put an earlier pic of his bike, & a couple of the latest ones

The three holes in the rear fender... he should put some of those threaded spike screws with washers, the same sort found on gothic choker necklaces and gauntlets.

Or I guess found on bondage gear to.

This the only spot to put this.......my nephews t-bars snapped fri nite, just as we pulled up at a party!! So lucky we weren't riding. Spent all day Sat removing heapsa shit off the Heritage Softail to undo wiring. Put some old risers and bars on, put back 2getha and fired it up. Looks betta and handles better with those cow-horn bars. NOW.....I have only ever worked on one bike ever, my sporty!! The POINT I am making is that this site ENCOURAGED me to have a go at this fix-up! Cheers guys, no pics, was too busy and got some more plans for my Bobber!! Peace out!

Hi Brett, bars snapped at top welds. Freaky tho coz both side came apart at same time and point. They should have come apart while riding but they didnt! Devine intervention! I had good look at the and they looked pretty shoddy build!

What you going to do with the bars? If you're gonna chuck them, I'll take them and weld them back up :oP
