    quick question guys...
    I'm wanting to change my 04 1200 to a paughco rigid frame...turn my baby into a kidney puncher.
    but I seem to only find them for 03 and earlier. does anyone know if they make them for 04 or would I have to have it custom made? I know they have the bolt/weld on kit, but honestly I want to go all the way and get the full frame..
    any advice?

    Do you plan to ride this ridgid frame as a daily driver, or is this going to be a weekender sort of bike?

    I'd have to spend a couple of years pondering on whether to ride a hardtail on city streets. Make some inexpensive struts and try it first.

    I manufactured struts 2 years ago and also lowered my 1200 2.75" in the process. it's been 15,000 miles this way and everything is great, You'l love the performance also, as it alleviates the squat and go on acceleration. It just goes! So, hang on!
