Does anyone know of chrome rotor covers for the 1800 VTX, I'd like to put some LEDs on it and light up the spokes and not too keen on taping contacts on my wheel and brushes on my forks for the Raw Kit type lights. Hoping to set up like a ring of fire set up?!

Well I've been searching and can't find anything specifically for the VTX but I think maybe from a 1200 or older goldwing maybe? I have the old ones from the 1500 Goldwing I'll check those this weekend, working 12's all week and a 2 hour round trip makes for too tired to mess with it this evening. Also looking at wheel lights on Cyclemax, just didn't want the white tape on my chrome spoke rims. Guess if all else fails I can just put the small 360 LEDs on the forks and fab up a halfmoon plate for the swingarm, it's mostly covered in the back anyway, and will be even more concealed when I put on hardbags.....eventually

I want to see it with LED's on and lit up.
I have Green LED's under the rear fender struts and around the breather covers nit there as much for style as visibility to be seen by other drivers while night riding.
But they do look cool 😎

That is uber cool! When are you starting production/ for sale? Could be your "retirement gold mine". Or a hobby product like SPyKER's old air cleaner grilles were.

I had same thought. He could sell just the cut pans and leave it to the buyer to do the finish work. There is a lot of headache in selling parts though. People get upset over nothing. Probably not worth it.

I wouldn’t want to take on the hassle besides I take too long to make money at it. I kind of like my bike as a one off anyway!!

old school........ "ONE OFF" is better..

shows off the skills, time, dedication

as most will NOT DO..

J&M motorcycle radio and CB's
Baker Built Air Wings.

I was designing and building them long before they started.

Like painting engines black, with polished fins... I started this in 1973 on Honda's.

if you can not go from 2-3 a month, to Hundreds per week.. forget it.

making trailer hitches for motorcycles..
and altering car electronic trailer brake controllers for motorcycles
even altering one brand of add-on brakes to brands that did not offer brakes.
I was doing this in 1984...

I needed it or wanted it for me.. then others wanted same... but they were not willing to WAIT for me to get the time... or pay for the hours to do the work.


Great Job Mike
