It looks kinda nice but it's too dark to really tell.

peanut tank. Round tapered oil filter, put the cover back on over the sproket, and paint it HD white, and it would be a beautiful bike!

I would lose the spring seat and put on a mustang. Put the sprocket cover back on. Replace the rear fender with the a 1200 custom fender and just chop it so you dont have to have a rear tail light and still run your rear signal brake light combo. I like the front end

Yeah, I pretty much agree with the others, I just don't see a '40's look. Some decent pic's might change my mind but, I doubt it. Put the artistic pic's on an artistic site. Here we like to see the bikes.

I think they had bigger fenders in the 40's? but the spring seat with shocks definitely fits

here's a 48 s model


and a 41 FL

and yes, please post some daytime pics

Looks cool. I like it. But with no belt guard or pulley cover your drive belt and pant leg aren't going to like it.

I'd like to see daylight pics...nice ride. I actually like the tank, not so much the lights. It's a scale thing for me, they just don't fit, I'd ditch that right side bag for sure, looks like a box and doesn't match the other side, unless you absolutely need it. The seat kicks ass, and I'd probably would have cut the sprocket cover so it was exposed vs. completely removing it, prop pie is niiiiiiiiiiiiiice

I like it overall...I'm not quite digging the lights but it's your bike.

Is there a tips/tricks thread for highlighting the fins around here somewhere? I've been toying with the idea on my Nightster but would like to know others technique before I start.

I'm really digging the tank badge and front end. Completely different than most. Good job.
