    them sure be pppuuurrrtttyyy bikes! =) What changes have I made to my bobber? Let's see... Spun a rod on my original wing at 275,000 miles. Bought two junked wings for $200.00. One was complete but had been run into the back of a dump truck, smushing the forks 'n plastic and killing its rider. The other was missing some parts. Took the wrecked wing, stripped her bare, added parts from my spun bearing wing and junked wing and a front end from a Shadow, cut about 8" from the rear of the frame and added a 2 barrel Holley carb on a home made intake to the engine. Installed 19" apes and a hand operated jockey shift along with tractor headlights and a '70s Yamaha Enduro tail light. Harley fishtails let her breathe better. It's been in this configuration for about 6-7 years now.
