I so wish I had this ability, but since I'm 50 and I can't even read my own hand writing I doubt I ever will. Nice job, looks good

Awesome. Love that colour. No word of a lie that is the colour I'm going to paint my bike with off white inserts.
Love it.

Routing oil lines and lovin the finned carb cover.




Got my springer back from Chrome. Chromer left out my top clamp/handle bars. That's going to set me back in time as I waited over a month and half already. Put my spare clamp and old bar for now.

man that thing is gorgeous!








edit:

and i hope you dont think i sound like a dick, but why not chrome/paint the fender to match the tank? sorry......it looks great without it but i think that chrome stripe down the center matching the tank would be over the top!

Some goodies I installed. Installed a H4 to Led conversion kit for my headlight.



Also replaced the spring type brake switch with one of these hidden ones from the factory metal works.
