One of the main reasons I went with more of a "stock" look for my shovelhead was so that my wife could ride with me. I've only owned 1 bike that she could ride two up and I had it during the time she was pregnant with our daughter.
I'm not sure if she will even like riding with me, but it made the "2 Bike" conversation a lot easier!
Here's some pictures of the great work that my buddy Ross did on my sissy bar. The seat/sissy bar on this bike is my favorite part. The front end is a close second.
It's at the stage where I can envision taking it down the road! I can't wait for that day (whenever it comes)!!!
