The stand came from an outfit called Bikelift, and I think you can find them at bikelift.com. I also have one of their lifts, and using a cordless drill it will lift a full dress bike about 3 feet in the air with no problem. I've had them both for about 12+ years now and think they are both the shiz-nit. As for the fork oil, I kept going up until it quit divin' so hard going into the corners, and as I stated before, with the kevlar brake pads and full floater drilled disc that're on it, it'll lock up the front wheel if I really crank on the brakes, but yes, dual discs are in it's future, as are a fork brace. The rest of the front end has been upgraded as far as I can go for now, short of slappin' on a set of upside down forks. As for why I'm not trading it in on a dresser? When this one is paid off, getting a brand new RG is my plan, that way I'll still have the Dyna, but I'll just strip it back down and make it into more of a solo bomber/ hot rod bike. And as expected, the thread has headed straight for poop-ville (one of the reasons I love this place- Tech advice given with tongue firmly planted in cheek)

And thats not tape- its a racin' stripe! So there!

Ok y'all.............
I done did the mock-up, (compleat with regulation green tape) so now on to the fab work.
The original crash bar eliminator that I started with, actually hit the downtubes of the frame, so a bit of re-working was in order.
I had to figure out a way to offset the mounting point a bit to get everything to clear, and to get the proper angle of the fairing in relation to the bike, when it was bolted up. I made up a piece to make the mounting tab back-set about 5/8ths of an inch, then tack welded everything up, and tested for fit.
Perfect!
Well, fired up the metal-glue gun and went at it, and after a bit of grindin' and the like, here is what I got-
I'd mount it all up and send some piccies, but I'm droppin' over to one of my neighbors to eat lasagne, and generally pork out on goodies, and watch the Super Bowl. I'll post up some stuff tomorrow and we'll see what
y'all think.

Well those of us who watched the game, just saw 'Frisco get beat, and the lights go out in Nawlins. I came home, and since I was full of good food, beer and energy I put the fairing on the bike (Her name by the way, is Bottle Rocket)
So, here are the pix. What say you, fellow Doofs? (and zINTs, if you'd like, too)
