    As an owner of a 07 Black Nightster, I strive to make mine standout, but with the somewhat limited accessories available, it ends up looking just like the other guys.

    I'm back searching again.

    Has anyone seen an air filter that looks like the one on the Cross Bones?

    I have tried all the usual suspects like J&P,Dennis Kirk,HD,the Web and others with little to show for it and I think the lines of a plain, round cover would look great.

    Thanks in advance for helping.

    Stay safe - keep the shiny side up.

    Hey Jake,

    Im riding the same nightster but have bobbed it out more..
    Im having the same trouble with air cleaner..
    RSD roland sands does a nice old style cleaner and Vance & Hines have made the Duke which also looks good...
    But I want performance too.. I have a SE stage 1 ham can that ive colour coded vivid black to match but need it tougher...
    Kuryakyn do the hyperchargers (ugly glorified bug catchers) but also just brought out a small 6inch style air cleaner.. old style kinda
    Thinking a velocity stack... to match my Race Tuner and V&H short shots
    Let me know how you go

    Dan;

    Great looking Bike! Especially the ham can.

    It looks like you have a Laperla seat - How do you like it?

    I have black forward controls, black mini apes, Progressive Shocks/fork springs, relocated front turn signals to lower triple tree (mounts also black) and I'd post a pic, but it's still dirty from the rain on Saturday and the road grime from the 400+ miles over the weekend.

    Next changes will be black SE mufflers with black het shields, and if necessary, I will fabricate an old school air cleaner.
