Hello From West Virginia

Hello....Here are a few mods to my 2017.....I replaced the stock bars with Western style 60s Bonneville..I have also added a Motone X-pipe...Relocated an aftermarket set of signals on custom brackets using the air box mounting hardware..I also added a BC (Street Twin) tail light assy. This required drilling an extra mounting hole and removing the last section of rib to the center of the fender...This would be covered if the factory rear light assy was reinstalled at a later date..The bolt shown without the license plate mounted was for mock up purposes..I countersunk the mounting holes and utilized flush fitting screws

Welcome! I dig what you did with the tail light, signals and plate. Cleans it up nicely!

How do those bars feel? less reach?

What region of WV are you in? Eastern panhandle at all?

I am 33 miles south of Morgantown....The bars feel nice to me as I have been riding Harley's for about 35 years...The last Triumph I had was a 68 Trophy..Back around 1983 or so?

Thanks for the welcome...Cars and Bikes are my thing so the garage is currently a mess..Yes there is a 2005 Anniversary Fatboy in the pic which I am going to sell...The other bike is a Cj750 that had a very extensive BMW conversion done to it several years ago (I am a WW2 reenactor )...I bought the Bobber about a month ago as a left over from a dealer it has 4 miles on it..I brought it home and started working on it the next day...I think I am done with the mods..
