Ryan, this blog is for you. If you click on a picture it should go up the 800 x 600 size, and you can copy them out of the blog. I took them at a higher resolution, so if you want any of them larger, let me know and I'll send them individually to you. The bike is back in the garage and will be kept clean and ready to load around the first week in April.
The Lindy engine guard, Bub's pipes, (I think they are Bub's, I'll find out for sure. ....can't remember, but know they cost over $500 bucks! And, the Force winder with the K&N air filter, mounted with an SCP adaptor. Because of the air flow this set up allows, the larger Mean Streak valves, and an adjustable carb instead of the fuel injection, this 1500 make more HP than a stock Classic would have. The engine is a very low mileage 2003.
The clean front end. There are a couple of very small 'dings' in the inside of the left fork cover from a little bang that Scorpion had. It would be cheap and easy to replace the cover if you are a perfectionist, but it really doesn't detract fromt he appearance. Check out the Nomad wheel and the dual disk brakes. You won't find those kind of "stoppers" on another Classic!
You can see the cover over the key hole on the Ghost bracket. Just a quick turn and the bags will easily pull off. This plate doesn't go with the bike, it was off something else. Since Scorpion kept the Washington plate to use on the Harley he bought, I just stuck this on one so I could ride it out to take some pictures.
I'll put the bike back in storage now until it's ready to load up the first week in April.
The Laid down plate bracker and frame. Notice the zipper on the saddle bag. There is a piece that come with them, that allows you to zip them together for carrying, or so you can use them as 'throw over' bags on a different bike if you want. They are made of very heavy leather. The are locked on with Ghost brackets, easy on and off.
