Hi,
I just wanted to show you guys pictures of my completed Night Train custom rebuild. I purchased it new towards the end of July 2004 from McMahons HD in Beaver Falls, PA. I started the rebuild in the begining of February 2005 and had it on the streets by the end of July 2005. Of course there are too many features to mention, but some hightlights includes a stock frame raked to 38 degrees, 180 wide tire kit, new sheet metal, custom suspension, renegade 5 pack rim set and a custom paint job to match the jagged and sharp look of the bike. It really grabs alot of attention when Im out riding. Thanks goes out to the guys on this forum who gave me advice and direction during the construction phase. I learned alot and had some interesting experiences while the rebuild was in progress. Overall I had fun, but it was alot of work as it was the first time I have ever done anything like this. SEE YOU ON THE RODE!

Thanks for the feedback. The bike rides really smooth. I was told by a few people that I may experience a stiffer ride due to the lowering but I really cant tell the difference at all. Im running a pair of Progressive suspension 550 series shocks. They have a lot of adjustability for a smoother ride. I thought some of the handeling would change because of the rake being pushed out to 38 degress, but it handels like a champ. I enjoy riding it because its really comfortable now for me. I kept the bad lander seat for now because I plan on having a custom seat sewn up for me in the future with the same design as the graphics on the skins. All that means is more $$$$ to spend. Im going to spend this winter taking care of a few small details though. It seems to me that there is always something else you can do when you think everything is done. I guess you have to draw the line somewhere. Thanks again and I will talk with you guys later.

Man, you've murdered that Night Train with all that chrome bling bling. Trains are about loving the BLACK. It reminds me of a classy lady done up in too much cheap jewellery.

I like it, alot! I like the dash, that really matches the bike well. I like the change in the rear fender too. Keep us in the loop when you get the seat done....

Best looking train I have seen in a long time. To many people buy a train and want to add even more black too it. You took the correct approach and added chrome where it was needed. SWEET!!

Did you get the added rake in a tree setup or is that added in the frame rake. Hard to tell from the pics if you chopped / rewelded the front to rake it on out or not.

Nice bike... Looks like alot of other customs, but with a blacked out motor... Hope its not a trailer queen... Not a fan of chrome, but I will say you didn't go overboard like most people do with their bikes. The chrome is an accent, not the primary focus. Enjoy...
