I thought so, but I don't know HDs very well. There is chrome add-ons everywhere. Is that a good thing?

I'm thinking a cast wheel for the front. But it will take some time to find a spoked front.

Ordered a few parts:

Gators for the rear shocks:


Top Case:



Controls, mine were butchered and the right turn signal switch broken:


Front fender, larger to fit the style:

Clutch done, pretty simple really. I did a bunch of little stuff, but not photo worthy.

Not much to show for it, except for shiny chrome! I did a lot of misc, including fixing a few crossthreaded bolts, trimming the belt guard to fit with the coming panniers, and small fixes.

Looks great though.

Top Case arrived. I have to say, for only $85, it is pretty nice. I chose to screw it to the existing mount. I will nee to firm up the mounting hardware, and add spacers to make it not crack, bit I like it in this position.






Chrome rack or no? I have my opinion already in case you will be insulted that I do not take your advice.

Here you can see where I need to add spacers to ensure it doesn't crack.

Had that same top case on my Road King for awhile. I cut a 1/4" piece of aluminum plate to fit the bottom to add some rigidity to it.

Bike is coming along great.

Thanks. I definitely need to stiffen the bottom so it doesn't crack. The 4 screw points are not enough.
