    Wow man how have you survived this long without riding, if you need some wheels, i have the harley here you can use, the one you did the seat for a couple of years ago, i'm supposed to have the new clutch cable for the triumph last week, yea go figure, hopefully this week, like tomorrow would be awesome

    I replaced the cam chest in the harley, added some big thunder baffles to the exhaust, so it actually has some power in the mid range now and sounds a lot nicer then it did. but bear in mind it is a harley, it does the best it can, drag raced my kid up Kingston rd. one night, i was hammering it, little S.O.B. was playing with me, he was on an SV 650S, can't complain i have done enough to him with the rocket.

    That’s nice of you but that’s ok I’ve gone this long , I almost bought. V Rod but figured that money can help me pay for all the metal work and going back and forth on getting Nevs cams but waiting to see how much this will cost me. But believe me it’s been hard, and thinking I have not ridden so long I might be rusty, so even getting on a Harley might scare me :)

    Um, it's a harley man, it isnt doing anything fast except maybe breaking down, and it has been really good about that, it's a Wide Glide so it is easy to ride, if you change your mind and decide you need to get out there let me know.

    Thanks I appreciate your kindness but I’ve been keeping my self busy, and I got treated in the States with my stem cells for my knee and hip so need to take it easy so it’s all good every thing worked out.
    So between healing and wiring on seats and changing design of my Rocket I really had no time to ride anyhow.
    But thanks anyhow, when I get my beast back we need to go for a nice ride.

    Ok he did my back fender license plate will be counter sunk at back as well as I got a 6 inch LED brake light that also will be countersunk somewhere at back.
    Just wanted to hear good and bad thoughts, should I keep it this length? Or shorter? If shorter how much?

    I think I decided on color black chrome with silver stripes going down bike. What do you guys think?

    looking great and keep it long to accentuate the difference to every other 'bobber cut tail'.

    Great colour choice too!
    Get a complete tail light and indicators sunkin rather than just tail brakelight.

    There are many different ones to choose from now in Strip LED and complete units with LEDs in side lamp unit.

    If that is against Canadian Registration laws get a pair of removable 'Click'n'Ride' indicators that plug and play using head phone jacks as mounts to stick in if you get hassled.

    Groovy Quick detach LED turn signal blinkers.
