Big thanks to my dad for helping me with fabrication!
Also, I recommend getting a Clymer shop manual, or similar, it's saved me a

'08 XL1200N Harley Davidson Nightster Short Shots
Nightster with a few mods. 'Stage 1' with Vance and Hines black Short
Shots, Vance and Hines Fuelpak, and Screamin Eagle air cleaner. Black
Progressive 412 rear shocks. Mustang Vintage Solo seat. The
'stage 1' with the new pipes really woke the bike up. It *feels* like a
Harley now. The sound is incredible. It's quite a bit quicker too. The
combination of the 412's and seat have made an incredible improvement to
the ride. I think I can actually ride for more than an hour without
needing to stop and stretch now. I plan on getting a detachable rear rack
and roll bag for it still and maybe a new grips and pegs set, but I'm not
planning much more in the way of modifications. A few accent pieces here
and there is all I can foresee. No ape hangers or forward controls for me.
I like it like it is.
2015 Harley Davidson Road Glide Review
When it comes to liking the cut of one’s jib, no motorcycle owns a
profile quite like the Road Glide’s. Not only is the Road Glide unique in
Harley-Davidson’s line-up, but also in the realm of cruiserdom. Others
emulate the fork-mounted, batwing fairing of Street Glides and Ultras, but
the Road Glide’s frame-mounted fairing and its distinctive styling sets
it apart from the crowd.
This striking fairing quality was what made the omission of the Road Glide
from Harley’s 2014 lineup so apparent. In an ends-justify-the-means
scenario, the yearlong vacation was well-deserved because the Road Glide
has returned, endowed with the benefits of Project Rushmore upgrades.
