Wow that's a sweet ride. The color is awesome!
jeff and i are both chrome whores!Oh, I forgot one. I took the exhaust wrap off the pipes from the '05 Sporty that the PO had put on. I found a new set of the stock type chrome covers that were removed from a 2017 1200C and the front cover fit perfect, but the rear one was off a tad. Had to do a little cutting but came out good enough. The chrome was almost perfect and it was $40 for the whole set including the stock muffler covers and clamps, that I will just store for now. I need to post a pic of the bike. It looks so different from the day I got it. I wasn't really a chrome lover but man this looks so good like that.
ha, kyle is a movie star we need autographed 8x10 black and white glossy photos please.Well, all I gotta do is send in a picture. I may apply just for the hell of it, but if shooting is going to interfere with my summer trip... well, then I just wouldn't do it. Who knows, we'll see.
Actually, I've been an extra in a movie once before, some crap zombie movie. You know how there's bad B films right? This is more like, bad D film. One tiny little scene, and I am embarrassed for everyone involved. Hopefully this "biker movie" wouldn't be nearly as bad...
Today i turned her Sportster around to make enough room to get between the bikes.
Then i decided to take a look at that problem i had with the "Media Compartment".. It gave up staying shut and tried to toss my cellphone during the last ride. The latch is working? But the door closes crooked. Wont stay shut, even empty...
Removed the passing lights, windshield, front faring and the radio support bracket.. All to get to just one screw.
Once i got the media compartment removed from the Inner Faring, the problem was easily spotted.. The inboard hinge arm had broken. I priced a replacement from my dealership $135. I decided to try ye ole' "stitches in a bottle" (super-glue). I figure at worst case i will have to pull it again. It seems to be holding just fine! Thanks to that very convenient spring applying pressure on that arm. We will wait and see if it holds...
I cleaned up all the dirt and grime that was hidden under the faring and got it all back together. Then decided to give her a well needed bubble bath. Got everything all bright and shinny again. ha, cyanoacrylate the shop medical emergency kit staple. usually if that stuff holds initally it is welded. i'd bet it is a permanent fix. and the s100 is in the top ten shop supply list. looking good and ready for day and road trips! 🆒 View attachment 781917
I decided to add this pic because I am impressed how well these products perform! That S100 just took off 6 years of grey from this motor
