I built them, I had an old set of wide beach style bars that I cut down and welded on some steel risers that I also built.

Finally got around to building a headlight bracket to mount the headlight.

Bracket still lacks a little shaping but it does what I want it to do which was move the light out and down to give a better look at the springer.

Thanks Tim, I followed your advice and added a third mount to the oil tank. Peace of mind feels great!

Hey man, bike looks great. What did you end up using for your rear axle spacers? Your little lathe should be able to handle Alun.. I turned mine out of 6061-T6 Alun. plenty of strength there and not as much weight.

I ended up using 6061 too, thanks for the compliment, the bikes coming along slowly. I'm saving up for a Mikuni carb, and hopefully once i get that I'll start riding it.

Here are some updated pics

Mikuni huh. You might want to look into hopping up your CV. My CV kicks ass with the upgrades installed and it was alot cheaper. I can keep the front wheel up in two gears on the stock frame.

Looking good and sounds nice!

I have a Weapon 200 frame with a 2005 883 rubber mount!

I'm glad that bikes built with this style frame are starting to be seen more on the net.
I couldn't find anyone else that was building them. It make it much better to have others doing the same type of builds to get advice and ideas from as it cuts down the amount of mistakes and wasted time and or money.

I never really have liked the Demons oversized tank, it's stuck out to me since the day I bought it, I've just been too hard headed to let it go but after seeing Ratchoppers build I knew what I had to do, so I found this little sporty tank to put in the big fugly ones place. The sun's shining just enough to mess with the photos, I'll take some better pics once I get the tank slicked and painted. I also built a new hand shifter.
