Just did a bike trade with my Dad yesterday, gave him my Aero 750 to trade in on a Harley and he gave me his '05 1300S. Holy crap I love this bike. It is truly an amazing ride. Planning on doing a few things to it however. It's all silver so I'm having a friend paint it black, I'm putting ape hangers on it (still undecided on the height since I'm tall and have gorilla arms), and I want to put the 1300c fenders on it. Not big on the retro look. Not to big on the chrome thing either, whereas my father put as much chrome on it as he could, but it would probably be to much work and expense to try to black it out now.

Although I'm wondering if anyone on here has gone with black control housings. I like the look of the black housing on the chrome apes and since I think black bars with chrome housings wouldn't look right the way the bike is now.

Again just wanted to introduce myself on here and say hello to everyone.

Welcome to the addiction! :cool: I've seen a couple of bikes with black control housings...they look good. You can disassemble yours and either paint or powder coat them black. Powder coating would stand the test of time better!
