    It's been a while since I checked in here. With the rise of Facebook, I just don't get on the various OA sites as much as I used to. Thought I'd share a few pics of a recent job I did for a local customer for his "F" model VTX1800. This bagger kit is sold as "fits the VTX". Yeah...

  12. Painting my Stock C Rims

    General VTX/Motorcycle Topics
    I've painted dozens of sets of wheels. Have them lightly blasted to clean them up and remove all the oxidation and what not. I have a stand I built that I can paint wheels on, I can spin them while I paint them, just like if they were on the bike. Wash them down REALLY, REALLY good with a...
