    Its a long and expensive process to round up all the Roadliner parts necessary for such a conversion, but its great knowing everything is genuine Yamaha parts that just bolt up basically.  You have to use the Roadliner seats once you switch the fender but they're easy to find used.  I'd love to see a silver version of this!

      I'm not a big fan of Raider's with bags but I have to say that looks really great.  Looks great without the bags too.  Excellent work.

      Are those the Arlen Ness Deep Cut footpegs? How'd you get them mounted? Looking at trying to use the Hardly versions on my Raider since they don't make the metric ones anymore.

      @NebraskaJ

      Mine are Ness Fusions I think, pretty nice and comfy but boards would be cool at times I think.  Mounting them is a bit of a mess, easy really but you just have to find washers or a nut/spacer to fit in the peg fork, then I used clear JB Weld to secure the stack inside the little peg fork area.  Once they're in (and you've found the right bolt, flat/lock washers, spacer, and lock nut) bolt them up and be sure they don't push forward and sit @90*.  the pegs will hold whatever you use in place once bolted up to dry and cure, then you're G2G.  They won't fold or be spring loaded anymore, but you won't be stock ;) 8)

      Yes I think that's what they were called....have had them on for a few years now, I don't remember installation being an issue.  I think there was an adapter kit that I used.  I also have the matching grips which I really like.

      I'd be interested in that adapter kit if you can find info on it Brad, solidify mine and make it cleaner.

      Freaking Awesome looking Bro ! I did notice in that last pic your passenger pegs are folded facing the front of the bike... did you do that on purpose and if so what's the advantage ?
      Lean till it grinds , then lean some more ..

      I did that on mine also, it was an accident but after it was done I like the looks of it better so I left it that way...  ;D  I had no idea the sides were interchangeable.

      I believe it lowers them considerably.

      I LOVE Hallguys bike!!!
