Because I loved the bike from the first moment I saw it, I did not plan to do too many mods.
But I thought it could use some tribals, not too large but flowing with the bike and in chrome, so it matches the whole impression.
Then I added those very good looking ISO grips and mirrors from Küryakyn and installed some crash bars for a broader, meaner and more impressive look...and some safety!


Crash bar from Hepco & Becker as well as a small tribal under the seat


Some tribals on the back side, tank tribal


Left side with crash bar


This is how it looks up front


Impression from the riders position

I think I am done with mods now. Maybe I would install an air horn and some Küryakyn switchblade pegs later...

so you drill into the shroud to the frame to mount your crash bars & how strong are they

Naah! LOL!
All you have to do is to exchange some bolts that are delivered by the manufacturere.
The whole install is a 30 min job, when you have the right tools.

The crash bars are VERY strong and the welding is best quality by Hepco & Becker.
Fixation is sturdy and stable. You get some LARGE bolts that go through the footpeg fixation plus two more holding on the frame on each side.

Those could very well save your legs from being crushed under your bike, or save your bike from unpleasant encounters with terra firma...

I'm usually not a fan of added graphics, but that's not bad! It's still a bit busy for my tastes, but very interesting. :bigthumbsup:
