I have seen and heard Okies bike (believe me you hear it). It is pretty **** sweet. Without his help I would not be riding. He sold me his old Ltd 1000 to learn on, I believe it was an 80 or 81, he would know. I am going to have him make me a sissy bar like the one he made for his drifter. Lets hear it for Okie!

Ah, corn chips.The perfect snack ..................for revenge!

Talking 800 Drifter Seat

I have a 2005 Vulcan 800 Drifter and would like to know if anyone would like to trade their Dual Saddle for the Solo Saddle?

i wonder if the 2005 800 solo seat would fit a 99 1500.

well, i got some new shoes for my bike back in dec. and finally got around to attempt to put them on. after 3 days of work and $60 later i got the front one done. im gona make an appt. for an oil change/tune up in the next few weeks and have the back one put on. what a pain. i also took the saddle bags off and man does it look sweet.

well, i have the stock exhaust sitting in my garage. i can take a look and see how they come out. i have the Sampson Slasher pipes on right now but they are a 2 piece pipe and the back half is starting to turn gold. i really dont like the look any way so i might just put some HK or V&H pipes on it.

well the pipes on my shadow are blue and gold from the heat now. i have some blue away for it. i think the exhaust is leaking out at that seam. when i was polishing the pipes a few weeks ago, there was a little exhaus soot there.

Thanks everybody for the nice comments sorry I haven't gotten back sooner. I don't about the seat I think it might be a Cobra? It was on it when I got her. I like it alot because it is different. She makes more noise with the thunder air kit. It was so nice here on Friday 50 I thought for sure that Saturday I would make a run so I went home put the battery on the charger got the air cleaner just fresh recharged on and went to bed early well Saturday and Sunday rained all day......

yea, i got to ride this weekend too. went out with a guy on his chopper and another guy with a custom harley. we got alot of looks goin thru town. got a "Hey, Sweet Indian" comment at the harley stealership. i forgot to check those pipes out tho. if i can remember and if i have time, i'll look at em tonight about the baffles. my bike is ready to be picked up at the shop right now. took it in for a spring tune up and to have my rear tire mounted and my header mounts re-finished (if they could do it) leaving to pick it up very shortly.
