Default How would you personalize the High Ball?

I'll start this off. I would start off by adding some small floorboards.Second would be a set of black wrapped ground pounders.Then I would lose the white walls,and go with black walls.The final step would be to get rid of the front fender. Next...........

05' 8 Ball,SRVT pipes,dragbars,Ness mirrors,06' Jackpot Headlight.
13' Cross Country,Anti Freeze Green,Vance and Hines slip ons,Power Commander

Personally, I like the look of the white walls. What bothers me the most is the Vegas headlight. Not that there's anything wrong with that headlight, but imho the High Ball needs a more retro looking bucket.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

- pull the head light and put on a round light.
- pull the tank and put on a 92c tank if I could. If not at least do a tank lift.
- wrapped short pipes
- loose the turn signals and put on a set of vegas LED hidden signals on the rear and a set of for wrap around LED for the front.
- side plate
- Jockey shift

- I would keep the rims and white walls! Love them!

This is were I would start

- Round headlight
- Bobtail rear fender
- Move the controls back a little bit to mid control

Then it's perfect

What lines....? All I noticed was the smoooooth curves....LOL And she hides the pedals from that old bicycle nicely....LOL...I would have no problem "personalizing" the Highball...mainly because I would have to kick my own ass for buying it in the first place...I'm definitely NOT a fan of this bike...was very disappointed

looks too much like a vegas , don't get me wrong i love my vegas' but for the look on this bike, for starters i would

1. loose the front fender

2. painted springer type forks

3. different tank , perhaps the tc tank would suffice

4. definitely floorboards [ no chrome ]

5. short rear fender

6. long side pipes back & up the rear apx 3 - 4 ft. with megaphone
type mufflers [ like we used to put on the triumphs back in the 60 's ]

7. a sissy bar at least 3 ft. higher than the fender.

8. some kind of tail / stop light like an old ford 30's era.

9. lose the side covers / mfg. sumpin different

10. almost forgot small round headlight a must.

11. no white walls for me / if you like em ok use em on your build.
