    Default 501CR Thump-e's Build

    I figured i should start a build tread with all the work i'm going to be doing.

    Here's a few pics of when I first decided to go with the CR theme an blending 1125CR parts into the bike.

    Of coarse the first CR piece was the Headlight.
    Then CR 2010 rear non-led blinkers with the 2009 CR led lights fitted into them.

    Next the CR rear brake pedal with folding toe peg an I slipped them XB heal guards on with the new rearsets and XB Idler pulley mount.

    Now the CR kick stand just looks so much sweeter then the blasts.
    I only saved a couple oz. switching kick stands out.
    I'm still thinking about making an all aluminum kick stand mount to replace that heavy steel one also.

    I still have acouple more buell parts i'm going to be working in with the new CR Phat Tail yet also. lol

    Had to modify the mount EZ because the CR kick stand bolts on to the bottom of the mount.

    Cut the old spring mount off making it flat were the nut is on top I have a 5/16 bolt in there right now i need to get a 3/8 tap an tread the hole in the mount eliminate the nut.
    Welding a piece of angle on for the back bolt an nut.

    Might want to call a few dealerships in your area - see if any are laying around - single heads can sit on shelves for years - sometimes they will dicker a bit - lol
