Post Mongrel's Custom Fatty 
 
So, here are some pics of my ride.  It's been a long way to get to this point, and everything has been done by me, except the paint.  I had a mate do that!



So it stared out as a 2010 Blue Fatboy.

Then I added new boards, mirrors, grips, new mustang seat, VnH Pipes, relocated the indicators, a new speedo, and my beloved Kurry Corsair big air kit.

So then I pulled the donk apart and installed a set of Andrews 57h Cams.

More to come.

So... Next on was the 4 degree Rake Kit from Hawg Halters.

Next - I moved to the wheels.  I went with Renegades - awesome looking wheels and 12 inch Mini Apes.

Then the epic task of paining!  Onto the next post!

So for the paint, I went to a mate who knows his shit and had him do a custom Candy Sapphire Blue on a silver base - Including some ghost flames that are only really visible when you get up close.

Enjoy...

Yep!  Not bad - you just have to adjust your riding style.

PLUS... I changed dimensions.  I went up to 18 inch on the rear, and up to 19 inch on the front.  I went thinner to 120 on the front too, and dumped the arse 2 inches.

Thanks Lads,

Yeah - Was a Fatty!     So much has been removed and added, the only real things left are the frame and most of the donk!  LOL!  Everything else has either been swapped out, or painted.

Everything from braided lines, controls, boards, fork lowers etc etc.  Even the spark plug leads have been swapped out.  LOL!!

Yes... it's an addiction!
