Picked up a 2011 America with only 800 on the clock,,,,

So cleaned up the emission restriction, air in and out and a couple of other bits and pieces.

Think I'm going to throw 120/90-18 on the front once I fab up a 1 inch fender lift.. the tires have no weat but are 09 production, so better safe than sorry.... cant decide to do white wall k177 and k555, or all black and some me888.... or the other option is put a shinko 777 whitewall on with no fender mod and a 130/70-18... but I think the tiny white side wall against the massive rear white wall may look abit off.

I don't usually care for whitewalls, but with the white on the tank, they look great. Nice job.

You have really done a nice job on the bike. Where did you come up with the seats? I am wanting to go to a solo seat on mine and I am having difficulty finding one. Also the saddlebag brackets. The whitewalls look great on that bike.
