Is the rolling chassis your avatar?

I want the fairings and bags. With a rake of 36 and trees at 6, this is becoming an issue. Most fairings are for normal rakes. I have already picked out several parts i will work on getting soon. And once i do start the build i will post pics here. So if anyone else is building the same frame, i would love to share notes along the way too.

if it is- it seems to have a great agressive stance. Did it come as a complete roller?

I'm a bit surprised that for such a mild neck rake(36) you have quite a big rake in the tree(6)- which must make your trail to be in a rather short range, but hopefully not less than 2''.anything less- you might face a high speed wobble . Check it out.

Have you thought to have the bags/ fairings to be easily taken off- so you would have the best of the 2 worlds- a nice clean chopper and( with bags/fairings on)- a touring bagger?

Just a thought or two.
