Default Updates -- Blacked out 8-ball

So I have done a little more work on the 8-ball. Finished blacking out the bike, except for the lower forks. Right now I have the upper forks plasti-dipped, but will be purchasing some fork tubes soon.

Right Side view -- highball apes, ness holeshot pegs/grips/derby covers, blacked out cheese wedge with custom hide-a-key spike (more photos soon), hacker zoomies, sissy bar from buywitchdoctors, master cylinder cover, ness tear drop mirrors, 8-ball oirl cooler cover and voltage cover.




Left Side view -- swing arm bag, holeshot clutch cover/derby cover/linkage. Vegas batter cover



Front view -- ness tear drops mirrors, spike axle covers, LED turn signals attached to triple tree, plasti-dipped upper forks.



Rear view -- blacked out tail light, side plate, LED signals, 200 tire



Now for the night:

HID Kit with Green Headlight (VERY bright) and Green LED kit.

Looks good. Jersey allows that headlight? How's it at night in a rural setting?

So far no issues. It is really bright and looks good in all settings. Those in cars hate it.

Bike looks great! What 200 rear did you put on? Any difference other than looks. I am doing it this summer and just curious.

It's a metzler 200/50. It was a 180/55. Looks great, and in my opinion, little more stable when it comes to the wind.

What kind of swing arm bag is that? It looks kind of low do you ever scrape it?

I bought the bag from eBay. Supposed to be on the strut, but I took the brace off and attached it to the strut. It is big and a little low. But the only thing will scrape is the strap that hangs off the buckle. But I hate the look of the bags on the strap and I hate carrying a backpack so I needed something.

That is a lot of black, very clean looking! Good luck with the headlight, around here I'd be done with the 1st cop I passed at night.
Great looking bike!

Looks great! I would only offer one suggestion. Flip the mirrors so they hang down instead of up if you could still see behind you.

I think I saw someone use GPS mounts to do it.

I thought about trying to flip them, but a couple of things, these are high ball mini-apes, so they arent that high. i am 6'2" so they fit my eyesight perfectly. secondly, not sure the tear drops would look good flipped upside down.
