You can also buy parts in chrome as accessories, but they are much too expensive for me.
So I leave it in black and will repaint some parts, I'm still thinking about the color.
When I'm finished I take pictures and put them in my gallery.

Riding a 2015 XG750 called The Raven. Bought it used in 2018 and have been only riding since then too.
This is the first ever bike I've owned or ridden other than the bike during the training course I took.

Hi,

I’m from 🇬🇧 living in Sheffield at the moment. Got my licence last October and my 2016 Street 750 a few weeks ago (from HD Gateshead). Great to part of the family 👍🏻😎

Thanks. I’ll try 👍🏻 Probably keeping it stock, but might change the muffler for this one Vance & Hines Hi-Output Slip-on In Black For 2015-2020 Street & Street Rod Models (47943)

People have talked about the tall boy seat Harley do (as I’m 6ft), but so far the stock one seems fine. Really happy with the bike so far, but who knows what I might change the longer I ride it. Have you changed much on yours or is it pretty much stock? 🤔

Nice, you won't be disappointed with a change of exhaust thats for sure!

Not so much stock anymore, it's a shame Harley don't do a lot of aftermarket parts for the bike as much as a sportster for example.

My current mods include:
Firebrand exhaust
Inverted mirrors
Customaces light fairing
Gloss painted all belt guards and covers
Blacked out top fork
Gunfighter solo seat

I will be adding my own side plate mount and fender delete soon, along with a tank lift, fp3 and air intake hopefully!

I don't think the tallboy seat is what you need, I changed to a solo seat and I'm 6'1 and it's fine!

Nice mods and customisations. Do you have a photo of your bike? Yes, I’ve noticed there’s not much in the way of aftermarket parts for the Street, but as I’ve got a 12-month Harley Originals Warranty with the bike, I’ll probably keep it pretty much stock for the duration as it seems according to what I’ve read and when talking to the people at Harleyworld, most mods could potentially void the warranty unless done by Harley themselves. Thanks for the recommendation about the seat! 👍🏻

Hello from Boston! I got my 2018 Street 500 in June with only 600 miles on it and I'm in love with it! I may be a chick, but I know my way around a toolbox and immediately got a Firebrand Grand Prix slip on exhaust. It was the easiest bad boy to install and I got a great deal on eBay and now my 500 turns heads and sounds amazing! I'll upload a couple of photo's of when I first bought the bike. Unfortunately, I sprained my foot just after getting the bike, so I've been enjoying the beauty of it aesthetically, which isn't ideal and making me sad. My foot's getting better and I'll be out there riding again soon! One question off the top, though. What do y'all suggest for storage? I'm open to any/all ideas. Thanks!

I'm happy to have stumbled on this site and look forward to getting to know my new online Harley "family." :)

Welcome from Houston Texas. Hope your ankle heals soon so you get back out there. There's a lot of different tail bags and tank bags that work pretty well. But I like using a back pack better. They make some that have a pouch that you can undo and secure you helmet when off the bike. I've had this one for a while and it works great.

Welcome to the forum!

My xg750 was my first bike ever, so I wanted saddlebags to protect the rear of the bike in the event of a parking lot drop. I didn't like the look nor price of the genuine H-D bags, so I bought some ultra cheap Stansport bags on eBay. They were made of olive drab canvas and truly ugly. I'd carry two empty gallon jugs in each one. They made good bumpers, but could possibly get into the rear wheel and belt.

The H-D saddle bag supports weren't available separately from the overpriced, ugly bags and I couldn't find any universal fit supports in black. My solution was to purchase the saree guards that you see on Indian bikes. They are metal grills that attach using the rear fender bolts. A quick search around the forums should come up with the part numbers. I ordered mine from surdyke.com.

After a few months Cycle Gear had a closeout deal on some nicer, black nylon bags. These were a pretty typical slant design cruiser bag branded Motocentric. They were a closeout deal at Cycle Gear and seem to have been discontinued.

Those bags took a beating when I went down on fresh gravel last year and I'm thinking of replacing them with Viking hard bags painted to match the bike.
