Default Ho Hum, Another 23" XC build :-)

I have been working on mine bit by bit, but it is very similar to Dustin0479.
I had previously done
VB upper and lower bag fillers
Stubby antenna relo.
Contrast cut grills
License plate relo. w/LED light bolts
VB #11 Contrast cut exhaust tips
Ness RAD III mirrors
Avon MT Boss heated grips
Madstad brackets with VB 8" dk smoke screen
Victory lower fairing air deflectors

Some pics are in the "show off" thread, but I though I would list everything (so far) in one place.

This weekend I took it to the next level
All parts from Vic Baggers
23" #23 Double Edge wheel
Ridgeback fender (rear wrap reduced by 2")
6 degree triple trees










I only have 100 miles on the setup, but so far I LOVE IT!!

That looks totally wicked- great job.

Looks like you have a separate garage for the bike? Man, that rocks!

Good looking machine! I wonder if there is anyway to use Bad Dads hidden plate on these bikes. That's the only thing that bugs me. I love the clean look of moving the plate off the fender but don't like it at the bottom either.

Yup, I am lucky to have a 3rd bay to store and work on my bike.

Actually, I have a set of Vic Bagger custom bars done except for the chroming (works better with my color scheme). They are very similar to yours, but have less rise. He had to put an extra radius in the upper part to make the "hooks" look right. Jacob did a FANTASTIC job! Should be done in a week or so, depending on the plater...



Thanks for the kind words!

They are only 20 miles up the road from me, so Im at the shop frequently. You're right they are crazy nice. Can't wait to get them on!


Btw I missed the ride height question. It is stock height with 0 PSI in the shock (right for my 190 weight). I was looking into Vic baggers air ride at some point. Don't want to do a lowering link and reduce my lean angle

I dropped mine 2" but I planned for it when ordering the bars. You definitely need to think about the bar draw back if you are planning on it.
