Default Hydro's bike

Hydro, where did you come from man? I love your bike, it's awesome and I'll deffinetly vote for it next month! Now after giving you all that praise, I'd probably chrome or paint the rear fender stays, the black is a little heavy or out of place. Nice Job!

He bought it that way.

You won't be able to vote for him until he gets fifty posts on the forum.

I agree with rquest.
It's a really nice looking bike - yes - stays in orange would look great too.

Congrats Hydro.

The bike is a custom build out of Britt's Motorsports in Wilmington, NC. I added the HID's and LED's.
I had been looking for a custom but wasn't sure what I wanted. I kept leaning towards a totally blacked out bike. A friend saw it, called me and the rest is history.
It was just one of those things. As soon as I saw it I wanted it. She was about 2 weeks old when I got her. She's a great ride.

I agree with the chrome fender stays. Funny that you mention the seat. I have been thinking the same thing.

Quite the paint work encompassing the frame !
Are you sure of the year of the bike?
I notice the passenger foot peg brackets are different. The left side are similar to the '02-'03 models (maybe '04 too) . They sit the foot peg behind the downmember of the frame while the other side puts the peg in front of that same frame piece. That is from '05 and newer at least.
Tried to look at front brakes to see if they were '06 and newer but without a left side pic I couldn't tell right off. The black brake lines/cables would suggest earlier than '06 but could have been changed too.

Just curious. When I first looked at left side , I thought "Hey , it is an earlier model." ('02-'03) and that maybe you would have the stock front foot peg brackets that I need !

Sharp looking bike!
The seats off the earlier models didn't extend back as far so a same model from then may fit the curve of the fender better.

You've got a keen eye bruce59.
Here's the poop. The bike was listed as an 06, but the paperwork during closing stated 05. I didn't care...I wanted it.
Then the DMV kicked back the paperwork because the frame had been changed / modified stating that it was a 2009. I'm new to the Warriors so my eye is not as keen as yours.
The bike is perfect in every way; runs great, looks good and fast as heck but still evolving kinda.
Do these pic's help?
