CC Hard Bags
Custom tail/Brake Light
LED Blinkers all around
Key less Gas Tank

Lookin good dude! Some bag extension and fillers for the rear prior to paint would really finish it off. Keep the pics coming as you progress. I have a long list myself this winter.

S&S intake/Lloyds
Lloyds timing wheel
Early 2000's Hammer/KP/Vegas round headlight powder coated flat black
Grips/Pegs/Mirrors (tried the tiny Ness tear drops tonight not sure if I like
21" x 3.5" front wheel (flat black with white nips)
18" x 5.5" rear wheel with 200 tire on it
Dakota digital speedo/tach (Black)
Black led bullets on all 4 corners
Vertical side mount license plate??? Not sure about that one...

"OP" is forum-speak for the original post, or the original posting person.

Duuuuude I'm so glad to see some real body-work-type customization on a High-Ball... Though I love the High-Ball as is.

If I had money and time to burn, and couldn't swap to a Hard-Ball, I'd be all over doing front and rear KP fenders, then some fat 10-12oz leather high-end bags from ironbags or leatherworks maybe, to fill in that nice profile gained by the fat KP fender.

Any other full-skirted fenders out there besides the KP or Boardwalk fenders for these bikes? I think maybe Klock Werks does some, but haven't seen any Vegas-style bikes swapping over to that whole "gangster" fender look.. I like it, personally. Granted, yes, I know, the High-Ball is a bobber, meant to be bobbed.. But I saw dare to push the envelope.

At the other end of the spectrum, I'd love to see a HB with a Conquest Customs swingarm mounted fender as well.. Haven't seen that done yet, while keeping the bike distinguishable as a High-Ball.

My winter projects: Adding a tool bag and blacking out lock&ride mounts and windshield hardware. LOL!!! Big whoop, right? hehehe
