Decided to turn one of my '78 stock black wings into my official "UnderGround Custom" bike.
30k miles, titled and plated, stock everything except engine guards.
One of the bikes I started on a few years ago, just never did much with it. I have my original '78 black so this one is going to be my victim.
First mod (and easiest) will be a Sporter seat I picked up awhile back at the local flea market in place of the stock seat I recovered with the standard Ebay replacement cover. Never liked the quality of the cover.
Second, custom aluminum cooling fins incorporated onto the valve cover sides. Kinda like the old Beemers have.
Third, replace the carb rack with a single conversion I have from another bike.
I love the look of velocity stacks on hot rods, so I'm going to go with that look out the top. Not sure if they will be just for show, or functional.
They won't be true velocity stacks, but my very own (read Cheap) version made from a set of stainless steel sauce cups from Sam's Club at a cost of less than $4.00 for 12. I'll cut off the bottoms and weld them to stainless tubing the same diameter.
Not sure if I keep them polished, powder coat them, or as pictured below with heat marks made with a propane torch. Probably go with the multi-level angled look, but that will be fine tuned later...
