After a few subtle changes

I added a luggage rack which I had powdercoated black (gotta have someplace to strap "stuff" to). Had the heatshields (lower) ceramiccoated black. Swapped the chrome Thunder Air Tornado for black wrinkle. Swapped out the fork boots for a set that fit better. The tank in the after picture is the one that belongs on the bike, the other one belongs to my bagger. I bought [email protected]'s old speedo housing, decision time, black or red?

OK, I've had to replace about three keyboards now. I drool all over them when I see pics of that bike.

That thing is just too cool.

I've been keeping my eye out for a totaled M50 so I can build it up to a C50! My wife still loves that blacked out engine! And I think it will be a blast to build it EXACTLY how she wants it from the start!

That's looking sweet. I especially like the look with the lower exhaust ceramic coated black. Liked the airkit better chrome. That's one cool bobber. 8)

LOL, I debated a long time about the airkit, but now that I got it, I really like the black wrinkle with the black engine. The exhaust? I paid extra to have a "gloss black" ceramic coat but it isn't very "glossy". It looks a little odd against the gloss black engine cases, I kinda liked the chrome better. :lol: The heatshields that I left chrome, I know white header wrap would really set that off, but I just don't care for header wrap after it starts to deteriorate. Again, just personal taste. This will be a work in progress. I already have plans for next winter. I want to redo the rear fender struts into a sissy bar styled after one of [email protected] bobber pics (top has tips like a "crown") and fashion some sort of real springer seat.
BTW the "dots" on the dice on the back of the fender are "glow in the dark", looks cooler than $hit at night.
