If you got a good dealer I would go there for the Harley specific stuff, Sears hardware has a good selection of grade 8, stainless, and chrome hardware. If I need anything else I go to Mcmaster-Carr.

The "thing" on the right is the rear axle nut. I have the same chassis on one of my bikes. It's a DNA 180/200 roller. As some one stated earlier the rake in the trees is a little much when considering the trail. I have never got into any high speed wobbles but I'll tell ya, the the bars at highway speeds are very touchy. You may want to consider a steering stabilizer.

Tank choice

looking at tanks, was wondering if I can put the dual split tank like on the baggers. What would this involve and is it practical? Or should I stick with the design DNA has set for it? It looks like my frame has the mount points for bolting these to it. And I want the larger tanks for a beefy look while not going too overboard. Advice? I am aware I can put about anything on my bike, but this about practicality vs stupid, LOL

This forum is quiet these days. I am still planning on putting the split tanks on my bike. I figure the worse thing is they would need to have the mounts welded on. I just dont like the smaller tanks, never know when I want to ride a long trip. I just wanted to know if anyone tried a different style than what the bike was already set up for.

I need to keep my eyes out on this one, I have an 84 fxrt thats been chopped out and has an 8" over stock springer front on it right now. I just bought an aftermarket fxr style frame with 38* rake and 2" stretch that im going to build into a full bagger as well, also running into the issue of windshield ideas for that rake.

Update time!!! Oil tank came in. I have the wide tire horseshoe style. Think is I can not figure how the thing mounts. Anyone have pics? The tank does not have front brackets to mount to the frame. I figure I will have to get some welded on to suit the frame brackets. I have no idea on this one unless I get some kind of angle iron.

I need to get the oil tank mount kit in and the bike should be ready for weld. I heard of a new shop nearby. Martyr Cycles in Queen Creek, AZ. Anyone in the area got anything on them?
