Bike looks good Kimo. But a lot more has been changed beside the tank and rear fender!

This is what it should look like:

Yeah, what BigPeet said. The 'T' in 'FXRT' is for 'touring'. He showed you the profile, my avatar is the front view.

Your bike looks good, I just hate seeing FXRs adulterated, especially FXRTs. They're my thing.

Surfing the web for interesting FXR's to look at. Note that I simply said "interesting".





This one has the S&S X-Wedge engine. Saw a write-up about it in a magazine.

I like the first 2. The blue one is done up as a flat tracker, but the tank reminds me of a boardtracker from the '20s, and the black one just looks like an animal.

I like the second and third pictures. FXR's always look good in Black.

anyone looking for a Mustang "gunfighter" style seat? Im open to trades for a 2-up seat, luggage rack, stock rear fender ... or whatever fits my FXR



I already got Progressive 13in shocks and 13.25 Works shocks to try. Just didn't have time to play with them yet.
