So last christmas a good friend of mines wife asked if I would fix up her husbands 04 Heritage classic for her while he is overseas serving with the Army Reserve. I said sure. Well 4 months later she finally gets the tins back from Bonehead designs paint and says I need to be done in 18 days. Wow! I feel like I am on pimp my ride. Just picked it up today and now trying to figure out what direction I am going with it. She has $1200 more I can spend to get it where it needs to be so I have to be creative.

Right now I am thinking:
Chrome forks and tins
StreetGlide style rear turnsignal bar. Anybody got one for sale?
Replace stock grips with some HD Flame Grips that I have laying around

Would like to add the following if someone has some laying around they want to sell cheap:
Chrome Control housings and controls
headlight, fog and turnsignal french trim rings
Front turnsignal lens
Flush axle
Chrome handlebars maybe
Anything else yall can think of??

Well I appreciate it but this is a softail. Some of the stuff still may work. Rear turnsignal bar and spot and turn signal stuff should be the same.

Beene, That would be awesome! Then I could run his wiring internal. That would clean the front end up nice.

I can't think of anything that I can donate off the top of my head. I thinks thats a pretty cool thing that you are doing, I wish I had something to send you. I will look around.

I didn't really mean to ask for donations. I just know I have 3 bins of take offs and changed minds in my shed from several bikes over the years. I found a few things I could use on his. Just thought if someone wanted to make a little money and help out that would be cool. I just have been screwed on ebay so hesitant about going that route when I have such a short time span to get this done.

I think this man really likes skulls. I am not sold on this Hoppe fairing. It looks ok but on a Softail it sits so high you almost cant see over it. I may need to lower his front end some.
