For months I've been working on a project for my chieftain. I wanted to create something that was a little more than a chieftain but not so fat and bulky as a roadmaster. Essentially I made a streamlined version of the RM on my DH and thought it fitting to call it Demon Horse. Still have to stretch the bags and fender but for the most part this gets the idea across.

Enjoy

Thank you. I'm not a dresser fan either which is why I went the route I did. Yeah I love my exhaust. With the lloydz cams it sounds nasty

At first, I was "WTF are you going to even be able to fit in that tiny trunk?!"...then I saw the amps and crossovers... :D

It's actually a digital processor. I'm not running any crossovers. I have 2 bullet tweeters in the fairing where the 5.25s were running in active mode directly to the amp

Nice, 21s aren't bad. I'd have to see the 23. Do you have to change the rake on it?
Just waiting on the arlen ness fender risers as the dirty birds didn't work out with the open fender
The 23 looks amazing and yes you have to change the rake on it

I looks nice , but I don`t think that any helmet would be able to make even tolerable the atrocious amount of noise that that exhaust would make . A longer ride would be impossible to do , in my humble opinion .

The exhaust really isnt all that bad. Really depends on how fast you ride. Its gets a little droning over 75-80 due to RPMs... I just purchased a new helmet and it blocks the exhaust really well without taking away too much music... I have the Simpson mod bandit (they are racing helmets so they do very well and look the best on baggers/cruisers IMO)

Is that an aftermarket shield ??

I was watching some videos and I only saw clear shields, and the drop down visor is not that big...

Just curious, because it's badass !!!

It's just not as fat and more streamlined. To which I dont consider it a dresser. All in the eye of the beholder I guess. As far as looking fatter with the speakers it really isnt. I've compared. The RM is a big ***** from the front lol. Like I said all streamlined. The RM lowers are HUGE
