This is my 2001 Legend.
It came with the bars, Thunderbird Sport seat and Staintune pipes.

I always felt that the stock tires looked a little too small.
Both are Michelin Commander II
Front 120/90 17
Rear 160/70 17
The only other change was to swap out the fender mount bolts with some cheesehead style allen head bolts. Available at your local Ace hardware.

My calibrated knees tell me the bike is about 1.5-2 inches higher off the ground.
Low speed steering is lighter while highway speeds seem firmer.
I love how it looks now.

Hi. Thanks for posting this. I've spent hours trying to find tyres in bigger sizes but have found it almost impossible to find a matching pair. I found plenty of 160/70 rears but no fronts to match. I was searching for 120/70 and 110/80 but never thought to try 120/90.
