Added M-Blaze disc LED bar end turn signals and blacked out upper forks. Similar to what WillRide has already done to his Scout.
And rode about 240 miles.

Yes they are visible front and rear. I kept the stock rear turn signals intact. In my mind they are adequate for replacing the front signals but not the rear. My riding buddies did say that they could easily see them from the rear for what that's worth. There are 2 LEDS facing forward and only one facing rear with the M-Blaze signals.those are awesome..........are they visible from the front and the rear?
Plug and play!That seat looks awesome! Any issues with the leds? Were they plug and play?
Above the light on my bike and on some other bikes some of us have added vintage horns. Mine is an old 6 volt horn that was cleaned up a bit. It turns out that 80 or 90 years ago somebody made a horn that is plug and play with a 2015 Scout.curious-- what is that over your light? I've seen a couple of Scouts with it...
I think most folks are very happy with the stock seat. I probably am a little bit heaver than the average Scout rider a smidge over 200lbs. As long as a smidge = the weight of an average 5 year old. I liked the look of the stock seat a lot. My backside didn't like the stock seat. After an hour I was less than happy with the stock seat. The tractor seat is working for me... so far. I have about 400 on it and I like it a lot. I'm just not sure if my ass makes the seat look small. Maybe I should ask someone.Nice-- really love the seat, is it more or less comfortable than the stock one?
I'm now up to about 6000 miles and I absolutely do not think that the Scout is to small for me. Or probably you. It's mostly in people's minds. Whatever is in your mind is what counts. I've ridden smaller and larger motorcycles and have had a blast on all of them. Don't let some lady that you probably wouldn't even like if you got to know her sway you. She sounds like an annoying *&$#@ if she just walked by and told you that it looks to small for you. Screw her and have fun. If you decide later that you want something bigger or smaller make the change. In the meantime you'll have a great bike to gain experience riding. Good luck.I also am a big guy. I have a 2016 Indian Red Scout on order. I was at the dealer recently just sitting on a 2015 and a lady suggested (unsolicited) the bike was too small for me. As a novice rider I appreciate the light bike and both feet flat on the ground at a stop. Do you feel the bike is too small for your frame?
They are part of the mount for the antique horn.what are those 2 screws under "indian" on the wire cover?
I had a local spring shop make up the springs. 1.75 inches wide by 11/64th thick 2 leafs. I started with 1 inch by 1/8th springs that I found online, that others had used on bobers but there was no way that was going to hold my 235 lb ass up.Now that I like, lets know what leaf you used etc
You can still have something similar. I said homemade but what I should have said is that I had it made. You could find a local shop to make one for you. One guy I went to said that he couldn't do it for less than 500 the next guy who made mine did it for 200.ok, was interested in having one. thanks, looks cool
It's working out great.How is that new seat suspension working out?
Glad that you like it. Had it custom made by DCG Customs. It was pretty easy, I provided the file as a JPEG told them how large I wanted it to be and they took care of the rest.Where did you get your tank sticker - I love that one!
Hey @Sargent looking good. To feed your chrome addiction here's a 47 Chief I saw last summer.As mentioned before, I'm an old school chrome kinda guy. Wish I wasn't, it would save me a lot of money. Anyway, I added fender washers and master cylinder covers today. Also, added a little accent to the footpegs. Debating the chrome levers, but with a little Mother's I got the OEM levers looking pretty shiny.
Thanks. The bags are Triple K MFG cavalry saddlebags, Randall from this forum turned me on to them. I just did a quick search and FYI I paid about half what they want on the Triple K website. I had to remove a good size chunk of leather between the 2 bags. I also distressed them quite a bit, way too shiny and red when new. The script is a custom decal I designed and had printed. It's a pretty easy process if you choose to go that route.Cameramanx, your bike is beautiful. I have a black 60. Your bags appear to be throw-over. Where did you buy these? And I love the Indian script on your tank. Was this a custom job?
Peal and stick black vinyl. Easily removed and then replaced when you have to remove the forks.Are the fork painted or it's a cover ?
