History
This bike was purchased to replace my old trusty 200,000+ mile old DL. It's identical, except less miles. Many of the farkles will be from the old bike, some improved along the way.
Hopefully this showcase will be a good place to document all the changes I'm making to this new bike as I bring over all the stuff from the old one.

2020-06-17: Cases brought over.

My cases on the old bike were brought over. The cases themselves were of an older generation and the latches were all broken long ago. I had managed a fix, but opted to upgrade to the new series cases when I brought them over to the new bike. The frame hardware was scuffed and shot with Harbor Freight truck bed liner. The new cases were painted with Krylon Fusion Patriotic Blue. Allegedly the only over the counter rattle can that'd stick to these cases.

I also opted to make the insides of the turn signals reflective.

Can you spot the difference?

Designed and 3D printed a plate to hold some LED's and switches. Don't think I like it enough to keep it long term though.

Also made some spacers to mount and support the top case.
