Well, it's a start for the FXR.

Got some of the "stuff" removed or switched out trying to get this FXR back to what it should be.

The footpeg mounts seem to work swell.
1" forward of stock mid controls on the right side and 1 1/4" ahead on the left.

Who says it's not good to have an extra inch sometimes ?
Next step will be Supertrapp exhaust, probably an S&S carb, Works shocks on the rear, and . . .

New FXR - gotta fix it

If you DON'T know what is wrong with this first picture of an FXR front tire, you might as well skip this post.

Nice 93 bike, only 22K miles.

Only problem was the DPO thought it was for . . . . I don't know.

After riding it home, I could tell why it had that problem.
those bars
and some more

My problem is I can't just do it the easy way. Mids - no problem. I just wanted an extra inch of room. There's nothing wrong with having an extra inch sometimes, is there ?
That's a right side peg/brake pedal mount slid forward an inch and out 1/2".
Left side's no problem - will also be forward and out.
Stand by for more about this kit.

Buell on the ground . . . . . . . .

No. Not 100% done, but close to it and awaiting a couple more parts. Just had to move it to accomplish something else.

The pics do not do the paint any justice.
Thanks again Terry.

Now, to work . . . . . .
