Like most of us I'm sure I can't leave well enough alone. I bought the red and black Chief Vintage and not too long after I got it home I took an ex acto knife to the fringe on the saddle bags, so much more to my liking with the fringe gone. Next up I hope to find someone with a red and black Chief Classic that want's to trade gas tanks so I can have the "painted on" script instead of the chrome script and then I'll be on the look out for someone that has a Chieftain that want's spoked rims so I can get cast rims instead. After that who knows, maybe some hard saddle bags. 10600654_10154763142300581_301631287824655757_n.jpg

I concur on the fringe. As Jay Leno refers to it, "the Village People" option. Much cleaner with the fringe removed.

As far as "What's Next"...wish more aftermarket options would start to emerge.
I contacted SAC up in New York to see if they had plans to make their 2 tone braided leather grips for Indian paint schemes.
here's Harley example:

They are large diameter, which creates that "less turn-more power effect" when you twist throttle. They make nice Native American designs too. Not a shill...just a big fan. Hopefully they are considering it.

My is held on with Velcro, (which I like) leave it on take it off my choice. The dealer also added on the handle bar LONG fringe, not sure I can handle it flying around hitting my arms on a long trip. I will keep my razor shank handy
