Our 2003 Harley Davidson VRSCA 100th Anniversary V-Rod transformation is coming along nicely, there's still more work to be done but we're very happy with the progress thus far.
Huge thank you to the sponsors of this build:
We are very proud to have your parts and services on this bike build.

While out exploring the backroads in Abbotsford I stumbled across this incredible old barn and had to stop for some pictures!

This carbon fiber Vrod build has been both challenging and exciting, the most difficult part by far has been the camera mounts. The goal being to have them as "stealthy" as possible and still provide a steady shot... After many hours of fabricating, testing and tuning I'm very happy to say we've achieved our goal!

I couldn't ride past this farm without stopping for a picture, it looked as if it should be in a movie or on the cover of a book or made into a 1,500 piece puzzle...
The backroads in Langley British Columbia Canada are full of beautiful places like this...

I have received a number of messages/emails on what was needed to install this cowl for a 2006 Night Rod onto a 02-06 VRSC
You can use the stock Harley-Davidson mount p/n: 69271-06 but I felt that it made the fairing sit to low on my bike showing too much of the clamshell.
The DX-TL-7 headlight bracket that allowed me to use a 7 inch headlight instead of the 5 3/4 is made by Wayne Motorsports
The 7 inch LED headlight recommended by Wayne Motorsports is the Truck-Lite 27270C but I decided to try the Phase 7 knock off that saved me approximately $200 cdn. But, in order to make that light fit I had to remove some of the middle bracing with a dremal. I wasn't worried about structural integrity because Tim's bracket is very well made.
A stock headlight seal from Harley-Davidson was need between the headlight and cowl. part number: 68134-97
A H4 to H9 H11 headlight adapter was also need, the only one I could find was for a 2014 RoadGlide but I had to remove the H9 H11 sockets because they had different alignment docks inside the sockets than my 03.

Before and After:
In order for the headlight cowl assembly to sit where I wanted it to on my 03 Vrod, I had to put the stock Harley-Davidson mount aside and make my own mount. I started with two pieces of 2x2x1/4 inch aluminum angle, then went at it with a hacksaw, drill/bits, files, sandpaper then hand polished. (and a couple of band-aids)

I've been racking up the miles with this SCHUBERTH C4 modular helmet equipped with the SC1 communication system and absolutely love it!
We had the C3 Pro for two years and it was truly the best helmet we've ever worn, so when the C4 came out we were blown away with changes the engineers made making a great helmet even better!!!

Our 2003 Harley Davidson VRSCA 100th Anniversary Vrod has gone through quite the transformation over the years...
On this Flashback Friday, we invite you to visit out Project Vrod page to see all the steps that it took to get to this point..
