Commuter build is done, Batwing, Case, Lights, Suspension
My build is done, at least the visible parts, the Batwing was the last part, and it went on this morning. Here are some pics of my Harley Street 750 commuter build.
- Memphis Shades Batwing fairing is the main aesthetic, combined with OEM crash bars to give that classic Harley look. Hardest part of the fairing install was the turn signal relocation, the plastic parts didn't quite fit, some shaping and silicone sealant to the rescue.
- top case (GIVI V46NT), but no side cases, narrow is best for lane splitting.
- light triangle up front, L-Shaped DRL's mounted to crash bars with custom fabricated aluminum (painted black) brackets.
- light triangle in the rear, 3" truck pedestal lights mounted in a givi case, give huge bright running/brake/turns. Case and lights chosen to be slightly less wide than the bars, again for lane splitting.
- second set of mirrors for 360 degree awareness, mounted high for panoramic over-the-shoulder view. OEM mirrors used as blind-spot mirrors.
- Progressive 12 13.5" rear shocks in beautiful black, with 70/120 springs for cushy suspension for a lightweight rider like myself.
- AirHawk Cruiser R small inflatable seat cushion for even cushier ride (the ride is still a bit rough, but worlds better than stock).
- Rupse TPMS (chinese cheapo, seem to work well enough).
- All electrical work uses waterproof automotive connectors and engine-compartment-grade high-temperature automotive electrical tape for the most professional job I could manage.
Still to come are some electronic gizmos, like gear indicator and heated grips, but they won't affect the look so it's time for pics.
