Go easy, I'm still kind of learning to post pics without Photobucket. Here goes....
Been lurking on this site for awhile now. After Seeing Alex005 build his '09 Glide I thought it was time for me to do it. Here's some of the parts I've been getting in the last month or so.
American Suspension Slip Fit Short Neck
AirFX rear shocks. Going with Marks pistons in the front.
JnR Designed factory switches for air ride and MRI center stand.
Dirty Air El Grande (minus the rear shocks and front pistons)
Rotation Industries Saturn Darkside 26" front wheel
Ness Lowers
HHI single caliper
Speed By Design Twisted 8 lids
Bad Dad wraped front fender
Heres the bikes current state.....

Off to a very good start. Bike is going to look good when done. What exhaust are you going to run.

Was leaning toward the Yaffe Cult Forty-Five. But the more I look at it the more I don’t like it. Probably end up with the Nasty Bastard. It’s what I was originally going to use.

Good started, like this parts. How quality this fairing? Abs or fiberglass? Where can buy the switches?

I got the switches from a company called J n R Designed. They are just factory switches that were relabeled and clear coated over. They can also customize them if you want. The fairing is from Topshop. Very high quality, not sure if they are injection molded like the bags are. I’ll know more when I actually get it. They are making me one now. I was told they are designed for the American suspension slip fit necks. HHI or Misfit, etc...they have to be modified. Won’t work with any bolt on kit.

Nice build. I'm doing a 26" on my Street Glide this year but with a American Suspension bolt on neck. Planning to get the mini money maker rear end. Can't wait to see how yours comes out.

I couldn't find anybody with pics of a 26" and the mini. The guys at Factory Match told me they've sold about 40 Mini's so far. Guess I'll be the first, hope I'm not disappointed.

No doubt about it. Its in my opinion the best of everything. I just hope it looks low enough air out on a center stand on a bike that is still moveable aired out.

I know, it’s a concern of mine. The mini is 1.75 shorter down than the full-size money maker. It’s a game of inches for sure.
