after a long time of mulling it over, i am finally getting my sport classic. looks like ill pick up an '07 gt next weekend, and part ways with my 749. in a previous thread, many offered tips for the 3 must-have improvements to make on the gt but i later came to realize it's not necessarily the number of mods that limits what i can do but rather the cash in my pocket.
so, knowing that i speed like a bandit (90-110) on the highway and value handling very much, i need more advice on how best to mod this gt. please include your thoughts on components, and (here's the important part) how to scout these parts on the cheap. i should also mention that the back tire on this bike is shot and needs to be replaced.
having followed this forum for almost a year, my initial list is for: tmsd (hoping wasp has some left) bar-end mirrors, new front sprocket, xenon headlight, clip-on grips, new front suspension, new front brakes, and some alpina tubeless rims. well needless to say the alpinas may blow my entire budget away, but im hoping maybe i can achieve the rest.
on a side note, i also welcome advice as to what the going rate is for a 07 stock gt with 5k miles on her. the tank is on firm but i see bumps/blebs/bubbles along the sides. am hoping this warrants a replacement from DNA.
