I was going to go with Mcbagger. What made you cut the neck? I want to do it right and don’t plan on getting rid of this bike.You don't necessarily have to have air ride in the front or rear to run a 26. You do have to rake the front end with either a bolt on kit or weld on kit though.
I started with an MC Bagger bolt on kit. Kept it for about a year then removed and sold it for an HHI Weld on kit.
