My Budget Bagger Build

I just got my frame, a softail bobber 200. Bought the rolling chassis. I ordered directly from the vendor and did run into some issues. But in the end I got what I wanted. Now I am on a tight budget, but then who isn't these days lol. I have never built a bike before, but with luck, I will have this built soon. My plan is to build a bagger/chopper. 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.

Ordered the motor today from Robs Used parts online. They had a 1340 Evo fully rebuilt with S&S parts and a 6 month warranty. The hard "priced" parts are now bought. Now for all the small things.

Pics will be posted once the motor comes. I am getting very eager now that the frame and the motor are taken care of.

Not trying to advertise for the guy, cause they were not too polite to me when I went in------but-----if you need parts locally while building, there's this place called "Bob's Cycle" at 39th st and University Dr in Phoenix, just of the I 10, guy has parts stacked to the ceiling!! New and Used for the tight budget. Just a thought since your local.

Ok here are the latest updates. I got the motor in last week. Placed it in the frame for looks right now. I need to get the hardware for the mock build. I loaded the pics to my folder. Just have to figure how to put them here.

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.

If the upper tree is a pinch/clamp type...

did those caps come with the kit. Or you bought it in hopes to improve the look of the fork?

Your upper tree might only allow you to use the traditional hd setup in the top tree- that hex bolt you already have- which serves as the plug as well as tightens the leg to the tree from the top.

But if your upper tree is a pinch/clamp type- you can use any plug you want- but for that 2-hole one you need a special wrench and in the process of tightening the plug- you might scratch the hell out of it- not to mention strip those holes.

Also-i'm not even sure what the right one on the picture is?

Good luck

The top of the trees are solid. No hole for the forks to come thru, only recess up into. The caps came with the kit. I just dont like the current setup to work. It looks unfinished at best. But yes, the trees have a hex setup to pinch the fork into place. So I can use any cap... hmm. Ok thanks Stein.
