was a custom fabrication, from scratch
Yes this is true, and that "one" didnt look....umm to good? You see in my opionion with a hugger, you need some clearence between the wheel and fairings to look good. This bike requires a rear end hike if your gonna do one and make it look descent. (New dogbones, slimer profile tire, stiff shock)

Yes i do, Have a machine shop make ones for you (unless you have the equipment) The specs are as following.

Make the holes 1/4 closer together on center to raise the bike 1-1.5" in the rear
Make the holes 1/2 closer togheter on center to raise the bike 1.5-2" in the rear
DONT GO ANY CLOSER THAN 1/2 VS STOCK

There you have it.

I made my own dogbones out of some stainless steel flatbar raised the bike 1/1/2" I love it . Sits like a real bike should. I did have shim out the left side with a washer to clear the shock.
