Thanks for all the compliments. Had a photo shoot about a week ago, the photographer sent the pics off for a magazine article. Not sure which one, but will hopefully find out soon enough.

Because I get bored easily. I ended up redoing a lot on the bike the past year.

Changed up the fenders. Made a flh fender to fit the 23 from two stock flh fenders. Built a new battery box/air tank. Re wired the bike, I wired it 10 years ago, figured re do it and with better wire. Moved the compressor and solenoid valve inside the nacelle. I'm sure I'm forgetting something stuff. But it's basically a whole new bike again. This winter I'm going to build new floor board mounts and foot controls. But for now. Just going to ride it.

It's a tight fit, but everything fits inside. Viair 98c compressor, accuair vu2, wiring solenoids.

Unfortunately my old phone crashed and lost a lot of photos. So I don't have much as far as building the fender. But here it sits prior to tear down for paint.

As for paint, I wanted to go back to a metal flake paint job, but in a factory style paint scheme. I ended up going with a 1959 paint scheme and emblem. I shot the bike using ppg. Silver base, 8 coats of flake, 3 coats of clear, then let that cure for a week. Sanded it with 800 till it was smooth. Then shot 5 coats of a mix of house of color kandys. The white on the tanks I did in a bright white pearl. 4 more coats of clear, then cut and buff.

Thank you. Pretty much. I wanted to update some things and while I was at it, decided to do a color change. I saved the other fenders and tanks.
