Did you stretch a set of stretched bags? Looks awesome, wish I had the skills...

The bags and fender are from "California bagger" here in Bakersfield. They were already stretched bags but I wanted them to sit lower. I sectioned them and added 2 1/2". One thing surprised me was how thick California bagger makes them. Very nice quality.

I always wondered what a sectioned FL fender would look like on a 23".

I think it is going to be perfect!

Id like to see how the rear looks with an exhaust. Now with the 4 1/2 in bags the exhaust is set perfect. Now you add 2 inches I think you said and the exhaust is going to be set high. Like to see what it looks like. I'm sure you did something with it

Those look amazing. Great work. Can you do my baddad bags and fender lol?

No really. How much? I'll pay for labor, shipping, material, etc

Man, that looks great! I've been debating whether to stretch my existing bags/fender or just buy another set. Too big of a project for me to learn on. The painter who had to fix my tank overlays already told me I'm not allowed to do bodywork ever again.

Thanks, i appreciate the comments. I'm kinda just learning as I go. Im not afraid of messing my own bags up if it didnt work out, but messing someone elses bags up I couldn't handle. Lol.

I highly doubt that. I paid $65 for all my stuff to be shipped from Baddad. To Cali would be a little more but nothing like extending more, and repainting.

But I do love my bags. Yours are very nice too. Looks very good. Can't wait to see the rest of the bike all done

It's nice to start with a good base. I used California Baggers tank, side covers, bags, rear fender, and just modified from those parts for a different one off style.
