I think it might look cool on a highball. Are the forks the same size?
Anyone seen a pic?

Different forks you would need one for a vegas. National cycle would have them but I don't you will find a pic with one like others said it's a bobber but it's your bike do want you want.

Thanks for the reminders. It is a bobber. All the picks of Highballs with bags confused me.

Won't happen again.thumb up

Superfly windshield was on my wish list when I get my Hammer 8 Ball. Went to the dealer to purchase, coincidently they installed one for free without me even mentioning it! Was a happy camper that day, on top of being happy about a new bike! :D

Nice!
I still like the look. when I get my Highball back from the shop it will have Black wall tires on it. So that may be enough rebellion for now.

I always have a little chuckle when people say my bike will have blackwalls...aren't they just tyres? ;)

"The Highball is a Bobber with Fists in the wind attitude designed to be the drawing board to write your own individuality. "
Hmmmmm, really?

Bujee... As long as your bobber looks cool to you that's all that matters. Bobber just means a stripped down minimalist motorcycle. Mini Apes, black wall, white wall, drag bars, blacked out, chromed out, small fenders, no fenders, solo seat, spring seat, I could go on but I think you get the point. All though the fists in the wind part is true... Nothing worse than a Highball with the bars rotated down in the riders lap... Once again that's just my opinion. Make the highball yours and ride the fuckin wheels off it!

Only in the UK Big Tav. :)
When I find a Vegas rear wheel for my 2014 Highball I'm gonna have the Vegas wheel & the standard Highball front powder coated black so it's not so obvious they are a different pattern and go 'blackwall' on the front too to give a different and stealthy look..... :crzy:

Agreed TravisP - a Highball with the bars in your lap looks crap - change the bars FFS! :D
I've rotated my Highball bars back towards me slightly - about 3" which fits me perfectly.

Max for the price of the all the powder coating and fuckin around buying used vegas wheels... For around $1000 usd you can have a 5.5" spoked 16" wheel to match your front wheel. There are 3 manufacturers of such a product for the HB. Ridewright, Sinister and ????. Can't remember the third one I found when I was playing around with my Highball.

I saw a Hammer in person with the Fly screen in place and I have to say I'm over it. Looks good on the Hammer but it looks like too much going on up front for the Highballl IMHO. Particularly with the 2012 Headlight. I saw a pic of one with the Gunner Headlight and it looks cool. I'm not willing to part with my my big gaudy headlight. For me, it's part of the look.

I've got mag wheels on mine Travis P, which is why I am going for the Vegas rear.
I can get the wheels powder coated for £50 per wheel & a used Vegas rear is around £250- even with tyres it will be under £700 for the whole thing.
$1000 dollars plus shipping and tax to the UK for 1 wheel would be over £1000.
Found a sweet little fly screen from Dynamic Cycle Parts for $150 so waiting for a price including shipping, etc., at the moment. :cool:

Here is mine, not a Victory one but a National Cycle. I just wish someone would make a quarter fairing for the Highball
Nice!
I like how it looks with the retro headlight.
I looked into the National Flyscreen but did not like it with the 2012 Headlight and don't want to change it.
