Nice man looks good I like your paint a lot and your exhaust. How are those Topshop bags to work with? I almost bought some a while back but did something different.

Thanks man, TopShop was great to work with, no problems at all. Great product and easy to deal with.

I used Top Shop 4" stretched bags on mine. I also used thier fender with no cutouts on it. I originally had the Tri-Bar light cutouts, but the fender kept cracking while trying to test fit and prep it. We ended up filling it

Ha, mine is parked for the winter! Chi Town is not very nice in the winter! It gives me plenty of time for the engine build though. Gonna build up a 124" with nitrous!

QuickHD, Sweet lookin ride ya got there my man. I'm parked for the winter also cause the "Burg" is not winter biker friendly either.
Good luck with that engine build and keep us posted when ya get started.

Webmaster, Hope that leg gets better so ya can get back on that scooter and enjoy some of that nice "southern winter" yall have down there.

Yeah the Top Shop bags look good. I like the Gen II with the swoop in them.

I got lucky that my Yaffe fender and TS bags lined up in the exhaust cutouts. i cant stand the difference in holes, it looks unfinished

I would have thought mine would have lined up a little been better since I used both thier bags and fender. I really didnt feel like cutting it up to make it perfect though.

Top shop will build those bags for us with a radius exhaust opening but that shape exhaust opening is far less forgiving when fitting to your pipes. For instance, even when we tell them we are using 4" diameter mufflers, mufflers from different manufacturers may have different mounts on them which will put them at different heights in the exhaust cutout. It is almost impossible to bolt fenders w fillers and long bags onto your bikes and have a tight exhaust opening that fits your mufflers perfect. That's why most exhaust openings are L shaped. It almost always takes at least a little labor once the parts are on the bike during mock-up to final trim the parts for a perfect fit. Here is a bag design that we came up with that Top Shop builds for us. We call it the Bevel bag since its beveled on the bottom for extra ground clearance when cornering. In the middle its a 4.25" stretch and its totally carpeted inside with a false bottom to separate your storage compartments. For more info go to:

Damn Paul, with all the options on your website I guess I am just going to have to ride down to the shop once we get nice weather again so we can discuss my options.

Highliner,
Thanks for checking out our site. Take some time to weed through them and let me know which ones interest you. I may be able to email you some pictures of the styles you like on finished bikes.

yeah, if you can live with it then screw the extra effort. its not noticeable on your bike anyway, plenty else to look at.

nobody get their panties in a bunch, but i dont like the stretched bags with the stock fender/fascia. looks unfinished.
