Gotta say I’m not hating the idea
That bike needs chrome chain handlebars!
Maybe a new sidestand too .
Sort of, Harley's been assembling using foreign parts since the 1970's .
Yeah I worked at a Yamaha,Honda dealership from 1994-2013 we would get a Harley in on trade now and then, I noticed alot of wheels were stamped made in Japan as well as most if not all the electronics. I've seen brembo brakes and clutches parts and a few things with Mexico embossed on them as well. They call it globaly sourced parts claiming that some of the parts do not have a US supply chain or the suppliers in the US just can't keep up with HD's demands. I guess they could go all American again, but people now days wouldn't be able to wait 6 months to a year to get the model they wanted attention spans arent what they used to be.
i would spend plenty time riding that foam before spending on vinyl. you may want it narrower at the lower thigh contact with some butt dimples or scoop.
if those are original shocks they are 30 years overdue for replacement.
Harley uses Foreign gears and forks too .
They claim the U.S. manufacturers are not able to be cost effective, nothing to do with keeping up with the demand .
It's hard to compete with countries that only pay their workers fifty cents an hour and don't offer health insurance.
In a lot of places fifty cents an hour is a living wage and we don't got health insurance here. It's not the pay and benefits, it's the cost of living and the standard of living the workers expect.
Well said Plaka .
Replaced the front brake cable and made a new mirror arm for the left side. And would like to do the same for the right side but not sure where to find this type of clamp on mirror, you guys have any suggestions? And is this an original BMW mirror?
Not an original mirror.
Someone may know the type it is, though.
Seat looks good as it can get with carpet padding, good work. I've never sat on a foam core with carpet padding, curious what the long term report will be on comfort?
You saved yourself a substantial amount # of greenbacks over buying new foam.
