Been following the YouTube vids , you make it look much easyer than it actually is!!
At this stage you have a choice to make on wheels,
Them wheels will look incredible if you go for the fat boy wide dreem mini with big roof spoiler,
What's next? Get running and drive on them wheels?
And try smaller to compare how it drives?
Nice coilover,s are they less poundage for less top wait?
