Now it's just a matter of waiting for the seat to be covered. I had a local shop add some rear bolster in behind my keister so I wouldn't slip off the seat and they used a grippier fabric for the tuck and roll center section.

I'll post a couple of pics to do with that later.

Just wanted to chime in with the realization that Sportsters are decently tough bikes and they make noise. Looking forward to the wind reduction that the new fairing provides based on a quick jaunt out with the bike.


don't stop til she's chopped
Great news! Have you installed the upgraded HD oil pump? My bike is an 04 and I just did it last weekend.
