2011 FLHX - No longer just a bolt-on

Bought a new Street Glide this year, went to Sturgis and decided "stock" wasn't going to get it.

Working with Josh Bourassa at True Kustom, Inc. in Denver, the stretched bags and fender are (hopefully) almost ready to paint. Things should start coming together in the next few weeks.

It's not much to look at yet. So far I've installed the chrome lowers (Impress Chrome exchange), 10" PYO Monkey Bars, Arlen Ness 23" G3 rim and rotors, and the Arnott Aladdin air ride system.

A sinister raked fairing (purchased from chad263), 12 degree triple tree, FBI 3" Drop Seat kit, bags and fenders are all bolt-on. However, looking at some of the bikes on this site... I need to start planning for the frame-rake and a 26" soon!

Nothing wrong with a "Bolt-On Bagger" it's going to be sick either way.

Keep us updated with pics!

Just curious... it looks like your wires are run on the outside of the bars, or was this just done for mock-up purposes?

Heh... yeah I was pretty excited to try them out. I was curious to see how tall the 10" bars were compared to stock. I haven't even cleaned the packing goop off yet. I'm wiring and installing longer cables today.

Its going to look great!

Everything we do to our bikes is bolt-on, so no worries. Its those personal touches we do to make them our own.

Yes, they are kewl metal trees, just repackaged by Ness.

Haven't received the drop seat kit yet. I had them paint the side panels and I ordered them just prior to the holidays. FBI is very upfront about stating that it will take 4-6 weeks.

It looks pretty low because the Arnott 9.5" shocks don't have any air yet.

I'm 6'2" with a long torso so I am doing everything I can to sit farther back. I get pretty sore with the stock configuration after 2-3 hours. The PYO Monkey bars will probably be the best bang for the buck with respect to ergonomics. The FBI side panels in the standard drop seat kit are also kind of a stop gap measure until I stretch the tank and do some sort of custom paint.

Bike looks good so far, I'm curious to know what you plan to do with the rear wheel. I'm going to do streched bags soon and am trying to decide if I should chrome my current wheel, or do something like the Yaffe smoothie, you won't be able to see anything but the bottom rim, so the design doesn't seem too important.

I'm already $5 grand over my originally planned budget (thanks to this web site) so I'm not going to do anything soon. If I were to buy something now, the Yaffe smoothie would be my pick also...
