Still not feeling all that great, but I am still working on it!

Daryl wanted to chop 2" out of the old height, so we started on that one night last week. We got it chopped down and back on the cruiser, but then we found that the upper halo and the middle halo had some alignment issues. We can to get the upper halo pulled over. We did not notice the problem until we started playing with the back bars. We ended up having to use some ratchet straps to get the halo over.

Back bars, and ratchet straps:


New front Profile:


New side profile:
