Honda Shadow VLX Bobber Chop

Well, here's another chop of mine. It started off as a bone stock, chromed out 2001 VLX 600. Needless to say, it wasn't gonna stay that way... and before I get any smart-ass comments, YES it's for sale as soon as I'm done with it. All the parts that came off this thing are also for sale. Here are some pics of the progress so far.
STOCK:

Decluttered...



Slammed & hardtailed, simplified wiring, new bars, grips, springer seat, air intake, and she's almost done...



Just gotta tie a few loose ends and detail. After that, it's up for grabs!!!
