WOW- what else can I say, you took the Ball and Ran with it ! The bike looks fantastic, and I bet it runs just as fantastic. I note you re-installed the OEM(?) 2 into 2 pipes- I know you talked about the laws there, but was just wondering about that 2 into 1 system you had on before ?
BTW- I love that photo you used as your Profile pic, thats got to be one of MY FAVORITE ALL TIME SPORTY PHOTOS ! (what can I say- I'm a man, and you captured two of my most favorites things)

PS- I'm sad you never joined my Yahoo XL883R group

I will post other pics later...

The front end is: CGB Forks 54 mm. or Ceriani forks with middle chrome triple trees. Stock HD lamp and lot of work to make fit perfect on a rubbermount 883R...
