side covers/tool boxes
« on: March 26, 2008, 10:43:24 AM »
I really dislike the Electra side covers.
Is it posible to install the tool boxes of the Classic models?
I would like to give it a more antique look. The stock bike looks too modern  :-\

The Classic style tool boxes can be made to fit. The drilling in the boxes does not match the tabs on the Electra frame, but a little work with a step drill will fix that. The existing holes could be plugged with the rubber grommet style plugs found at most auto parts stores.

Contact our host for specifics: new or slightly flawed for a bargain price and color.
