It took a lot of elbow grease but I was able to bring the chrome back to life on this 1130cc Revolution engine.My favourite Harley Davidson emblem ever....Front camera mount fitted, now it's time to disassamble for fine tunning and polishingFront & Rear camera mounts mocked up, PIAA lights installed, SuperBrace installed, Avon cobra tyres mounted. and last but not least the "Unicorn" saddlebags are installed. Why Unicorn? They were brand new in the box stashed away at Wilkins HD for the last 12 years... Before and after shot of the front wheel. This rim was badly pitted from years of neglect by the previous owner, but with a lot of elbow grease and Autosol aluminum polish I was able to bring it back to how it should look.Project Vrod being dropped off by Trev Deeley Motorcycles after the crew at TDMC Customs performed a safety inspection on the bike and fixed all the problems they found.PIAA's new LP270 2.75" LED Driving Light Kit mounted

Reflector Facing Technology puts more light where the driver needs it
6000K White Color Temperature to replicate daylight
SAE Compliant Long Range Driving beam pattern for superior visibilityPingel Steering Stabilizer mounted and ready to go! These aren't just for drag racing, there are many benefits for everyday riding noticeable at low and highway speeds and definitely in the corners. LOVE this stabilizer!!!SUPERBRACE: The Ultimate fork stabilizer
Improves stability in tight cornering
Reduces low and high speed wobbles
Improves tire life and reduces cupping
Improves steering precision and handling
Decreases sensitivity to rough road surfaces and rain grooves.Liberty Sport Performance Eyewear is an official sponsor of #ProjectVrod  So much chrome you're going to need a pair of Piston glasses just to look at it!!!!

All hand tools: hacksaw, drill. files. sandpaper and lots of elbow grease.I originally had 1 inch by 1/4 aluminum flatbar supports but had some flex in them when the camera plate was mounted and tightened down. These 1 inch by 3/8 supports did the trick!Rear camera mount complete with camera plate, camera case, tour pack luggage rack and quick release tripod clips.Project Vrod sponsors:

Trev Deeley Motorcycles dropped off my bike at 7:30 after the team at TDMC Customs installed this SuckerPunch Exhaust System from Fitzgerald Motorsports & a tuner from Daytona Twin Tec.
Special thanks Scott "The Vrod Guru" Fitzgerald of Fitzgerald MotorspotsA friend gave me a 100th anniversary secondary clutch actuator cover but it had a large dent on the top. There was no way to repair the dent so I cut out the centre and now use it as a fork stem cap.The only thing I don't like about this suckerpunch pipe from Fitzgerald motorsports is: When I blow a shift, everyone hears it...... Lol, true story... My bad, not theirs...The lower legs have been needing some TLC for a long time, scratchesfrom rocks, road debris and the previous owners kids liked leaning their bikes against Dad's bike...

part number: 42204-04
This bullet-shaped chrome cover is designed to add a custom look while hiding the working components of the V-Rod rear master cylinder. The two-piece design covers both the brake line banjo bolt and the cartridge housingFinally got a rear master cylinder chrome cover kit 42204-04 for our VROD. These are extremely difficult to find & when you do they fetch top dollar...Moto Hooligan airbox for the Harley Davidson V-Rod. Compleetly replaces the factory air box.  Includes all hardwear and instructions. Gains of 3-5 HP have been seen without extra tuning over the stock box topless with K&N and SE filter.  More images and details in our review sectionBirds eye view of what you see when the airbox cover and filter assembly has been removed.I initially rode past this freshly cut field and thought that it looked pretty cool, decided to turn around for a photo thinking the contrast of the straight lines of the field & round lines of the bike would have a nice contrast.
Stock mirrors and signal lights before Muscle mirror conversionI just couldn't bring myself to cut into the stock wiring of my 2003 Vrod, so I picked up  6 socket connectors from Harley & 3 feet of dual wire with outer jacket. Then I opened up the multi-lock connector pulled out the stock 3 wire signal light wiring & replaced it with this harness.Before

That picnic table was a perfect spot for a saddlebag lunch.
We are looking forward to staying at the Comfort Inn & suites in Merritt this riding season while we film in their area.

Underneath the Golden Ears BridgeI've ridden over the Mission Bridge many times but this was the first time riding under it. This was a great little park for a pic and a cold water from the saddlebags!Genuine Harley-Davidson colour-matched radiator cover and spoiler part number: 57621-06DH vivid blackOur 2003 Harley Davidson 100th Anniversary VRSCA VROD has come a long way since we bought it.
Here's a before and after with all the changes and mods up to date. There will be more work invested into it over the upcoming winter and we'll be posting the progress updates here and in social mediaWhen it comes to customizing a motorcycle I'm a firm believer that, "the Devil's in the details" it's the little things that make the over all presentation pop.  Scott Fitzgerald of Fitzgerald Motorsports has come through once again with this beautiful cam tensioner cover! It happened again,
I fell down the rabbit hole of sanding and polishing. What started out as sanding out a couple of marks on this brake arm, turned into a full blown OCD marathon.What a great spot!
