Modifications

Drivetrain
One at each end. Got rid of the factory Bakelite tyres and replaced with Continentals.

Kuryakin Hypercharger on custom fabricated steel airbox with air bleed to float bowl.
Highway Hawk 2½" Shorties.
Dyno'd at a computed 70hp at the crank, 60 ft.lbs at 3420 rpm
At full throttle, it's throwing a foot of flame out the back, and the baffles glow orange...
Exterior
Bobbed. No, really. Blue Collar Bobbers fenders, custom made seat tray/battery cover, custom turn signals and brackets. Highway Hawk 'Smaller than Useless' mirrors. 40" beach bars.
Audio
Apparently it has some of this.

None. ¼" thick sprung saddle.
Wheel and Tire
Work of the Devil!
