Done this too many times...every bike since I was 14, now 70..cant leave the thing alone....but this time...things were going to be different! Stryker is a great bike...leave it alone! enjoy it as it is!
Well, that idea took a flying leap out the window in short order to its untimely death...sad tidings and condolences to my savings account.
As some already know, I bought a 2015 Bullet Cowl in pristine condition with 2900 miles on it last month. All original with the exception of a batwing on it....all original including 8 year old tires that were "seemingly" still quite good. Problem is that they were getting hard...not cracked but the sidewalls are HARD....one sharp-edged pothole and they would have exploded..so....
Shinko 777's all around and with a bit of fattening up on the rear with a 240 last week.
Ordered and have received Viking hard bags
Ordered the bits and pieces missing so I can take the batwing off and put the bullet cowl back on.
Ordered Soupys lowering kit
Ordered some longer and wider foot pegs for my size 14 shoes
Studying ways to clean up the rear fender but retain the stock taillight and turn signals and move the license plate up.
Studying a way to build a T-Bar but also accommodate the speedo.
Next to order will be the PCS Roadster exhaust in CeramiKrome
After that, a BAK
Also talking with the experts in the vinyl wrap world to change this mundane green into a candy apple/chrome/super shiny/burn out a retina green or yellow.
I'm quite sure I will think of other things to buy/change before this is all done
Once everything is here, then all the tins go off the be vinyl wrapped while the other parts and pieces are being installed/changed. Bike will go on in my shop and not come out til completely done.
Of course the very first thing to come off will be the ECU and shipped off to Ivan pronto so I will have it back by the time all the other work is done and the bike back together.
Please light and candle and pray that my savings (retirement) account survives this...
Pic as it is now....
