Honda Shadow Choppers?

Hey guys. Great site here. I've been flipping through the pages here and there and had some questions, and hopefully get some good advice and tips out of it. I picked myself up an 02 Honda Shadow ACE. Is this a good candidate for a chopper? What have others done with them? I've searched and seen a handful of nice ones. Just wanted to get a plan on what would have to be done. Thanks guys

its very easy to put on raked tree's, and a larger rear aftermarket harley wheel (18x5.5),and convert to rear disc brakes

plus, you can jet the ace's/spirits and get quite a bit more power out of them

I have new question. I found a fender that I liked from sumax. It is a dagger fender. In the pic of black honda with flames they have a chrome fender mounts. Where they custom made or can they be purchased some where.

Here's a VLX 600 , I put together a few years back. YES, it can be lowered with a great stock shock ride.....It's as simple as relocating the shock mounting hole on the rear swing arm to put it closer to the tire.. moving it a inch will give you about 2" lower and still ride great....The Spirits can also be dropped by relocating the shock mounts...
