I bought my Stryker June 16th. I rode the Next day about 300 miles and came home and ordered the Mustang Seat And rear sissy bar and Pad.



I have been slowly painting some of the chrome, its just rattle can semi gloss black. I filled in the lower Yamaha chromed cover and painted it and removed all the stickers.
I made the License plate bracket and bought a lit Cover from Chrome glow and wired it up.



I went to the dealer and got the exhaust. They had it in stock. I ordered the Cobra tuner and it should be here Tuesday.




I still would like to get some mirrors and I am making a surround for the gas cap, It will also be black.

So what do you think? Any questions or suggestions.

Thanks for the kind words. I think I like fixing the Bike up as much as riding it.
I just decided that I didnt want it and didnt really think I would need it either. So far I don't miss it.

I agree. Working on the bike is therapy for me and I am sure for many others. I dont think I need the backrest either and will save some money. Enjoy!

Very nice does that confty looking seat make you sit any more forward ?
Once you do the mirrows it will look complete then.
I am pretty sure it leaves you in the same position as stock.

Looks great! I really need to get a set of those pipes. Think I will wait until the winter so I have a project when it's cold.

Looks nice. Good job.
How about 2-3 pics of the license plate bracket you made.
I made one two nights ago and bombed it. I am looking for other options..

We dont have inspection stickers. You cant get a new plate or renew old plate till you get inspection done here once a year .
