Well my name is Chad I own www.fletcherscustoms.com we are a specialized shop in auto restoration and custom auot suspension. Dealing mainly in 67-69 First Gen camaro's. WE also offer custom painting and airbrushing. So I set out a few months ago to find a bike that is comparable of my needs, speed and handling, and with the aftermarket parts availabilty so that bike can be customized and painted to atract attention for the shop. I was going to purchase a new 07 midnight, just love the blacked out look. But found a 05 Midnight with 567 miles here in GA for $9500 so it was a no brainer what to do. Going to pick up the bike today at 1 and then ride it the 160 miles back home. The mod wheels have already started turning, I have already purchased a set oh Rhinehart's, Power Commander, UFO rear signal, and a Frame mount license plate holder to clean up the rear. and will be ordering the Churkeys as soon as I get through typeing this. Rhineharts are being sent out direct from dealer to be ceramic coated and then shipped to me, got to keep the black theme. I will also be ordering a 260 rear tire kit, Trickys air ride, lowering the front , and adding some custom paint when winter gets here. Thanks for all the info I have found on the site.

Welcome to the site Chad. Looking forward to seeing your creation. Will you get to ride it much or will it sit in the front of your shop all of the time? That would be a shame, I wouldn't be able to resist the temptation /emoticons/emotion-1.gif

Welcome and congrats on the new project - you might want to hold off on ordering the UFO light, they are out of stock and retooling & they do not expect to have a new unit available until 04/07, thier new light will not be a kit - it will be the whole light assy. If you can not wait, I have a CA integrated light I will be selling in a week when I ge mine back from MC Enterprizes - You can also pm snakeyezzz, he also makes a cool light/signal out of your stocker

Just got home about 30 mintutes with it. And boy I am in love!!Bike had a whopping 567 miles on it when I got. Owner had not rode it in a while, battery is almost dead and tires had 9PSI front and 12 PSI rear. Got it all Aired up and on the charger for the riding to start in the morning.

I ended up ordering a tail light off ebay, from mild to wild. We'll see how it works out for now. Planning on a custom fender this winter anyway.

AS far as the bike sitting at the shop. thats a negative. It'll roll over 1000 miles this weekend. I am riding 120 miles to a Rally this SAturday then back , plus some other minor riding at the rally. And I am 100% against trailer, I think everything should be used!!
