Here's something I just fabbed up to give myself a little more carrying capacity.
I've never been one to like the look of full size bags on a Sporty, so I adapted some sissy bar bags with this bracket that bolts up to the sissy bar cross brace.
As we both age gracefully, it's 37 & I'm 60, my high desert riding area requires a few more carry-alongs . This should help with that.

Nice rendition of an ironhead on a newer machine--I like it!

Here are a couple of pics of my '59 CH.

Thanks for the compliments. I refurbished this machine over last winter. Here is a " before"picture.

Racepres--actually, the headers are OEM Harley ironhead pipes and the mufflers are aftermarket slash cut glasspacks which I found on Ebay. A number of Ebay sellers have them. They look nice, sound nice, and are inexpensive. If you type in slash cut mufflers on Ebay under motorcycle parts, you'll find them.

Racepres--I just found a pair on Ebay. Type in "Cool Chopper Bobber Slash Cut Exhaust Red". There is also a pair listed under "Honda CB 350 450 slash cut muffler". As I say, they are pretty common.

The ony problem i had is the gasspack material blows out fairly quickly. I recently re-wrapped the baffles with stainless steel wool packing material. It's supposed to last longer--we'll see.

Thanks for that...I thought that they were the old one piece Paucho's...But I still love those dual taper muff's...Hell If they are available as Muffler only...my shovelhead may benefit also!!!
Thanks again...I'm on it!

So Very Close!! I'm wondering if an old Wagner master cylinder would go onto it?? One more "vintage touch" IMHO

Thank you,the guys on this site are geniuses. Including the engine upgrades Im into it just over 6 grand. I see Joe Hunts got a unit that fit these 5 speed models for $1100,can anyone tell me if its possible to run pointless ignition with mags? When I ride I like to be sure breakdowns are excluded from the equation, currently running a dyna with a capacitor in place of a battery. I always burn the lights to ease the regulator strain and thats been good to me for about a year but I think with a mag it would be that much closer to indestructible.

part of the appeal of mags is the mechanical simplicity... in my experience, points are more reliable than electronic ignition. they don't seem to ever completely fail... you can usually fix 'em on the side of the road with a pocket knife and be on your way. or carry a spare set & condenser if you really want to cover your ass.

i've been stranded twice, late at night, FAR from anything with dyna ignitions.

i've never been stranded with points.

Here's my little Ironhead that I am putting together in my garden. Not sure what year it is as it started with an impulse buy of an engine on ebay. So far it's just a collection of parts balanced together but should take shape over the next few months. Obviously a Shiiiiit load of work to do and bit's to fab but it's a fun, cheap project so far.
