Hi guys, I'm starting my bagger build (06 roadking) and I'm looking for:

- 26" neck rake bolt on (no frame cutting)
- 26" front wheel
- rear air suspension and electric stand
- side exhaust
- 6" or 7" down and 14" back full body kit.

any sugestions are welcomed, this is my first bagger build.
maybe somebody has some used ones for sale.

thanks !

I'm goind for this look, minus the 30" wheel.

Hello ElSpa. I just finished a build and have uploaded pic here in the RK Build Post. I'll offer you a little advice but these are purely my opinions.

- 26" neck rake bolt on (no frame cutting) You'll regret not going 30 but if so please go ahead and do it right and cut. One reason is you add several inches to the distance between your tank and nacelle and it looks hideous jmo. Besides the fact that the correct way is to cut and rake. Thats a whole other topic.
- 26" front wheel See Above go 30 its the new 26
- rear air suspension and electric stand they are all pretty much the same unless you go really high end on air suspension and only a couple choices on stand
- side exhaust Misfit/Trask
- 6" or 7" down and 14" back full body kit. Probably stay with 6" down if you go 26. Too many people go larger and the bag to wheel ratio isn't proportional.

any sugestions are welcomed, this is my first bagger build.
maybe somebody has some used ones for sale.

thanks !

I'm goind for this look, minus the 30" wheel.

ElSpa, Search the site here for the answer to - to cut or not. There has been some debate in the past here about that subject. Some like above to cut; and others to not. All depends on what kind of person you are as well. If you will be happy with just the 26", then don't. But if you are the type to want to go bigger afterwards, then cut.
Some states consider a cut frame as salvage and "should" get a R title. Also, some places will not take a cut frame in on a trade (if you want to go another bike route.) So there is lots to consider on your choice
Good luck and keep us posted, and we like pics too!!
