Oh! I forgot to mention a styling improvement: they moved the horn behind the radiator instead of sticking out of the side of the engine like a sore thumb!

Here in Alberta, at two different dealerships, they have the 750s, in flat track versions (shop modified). Heritage Harley in Edmonton did an extremely nice job. It's hot, I'd buy that. Done in the colors of the old factory race team.

In Lloydminster, they did an Evel Kneivel tribute style. Another hot bike. Both quite impressive, from an otherwise lack-lustre base platform.

If either were close, I'd take some pics, and post them. These things can be made to look damn good. Doesn't look like it takes a lot to seriously change the appearance from stock.

A bro of mine bought one for his ol'lady. She hardly rides it. He rides it occasionally to keep it from rotting. He thought it was a pretty good little bike. However he is about 6' and pretty hurt by. So he looks like a gorilla on a tricycle. He was impressed as it is a 750.

Just seen this

http://www.pipeburn.com/home/2016/09...l-customs.html

Considering the lacklustre original appearance this looks pretty good, I'd say.

I also saw one ridden in the 2016 Dirtquake at Kings Lynn, might have been the same one I saw in Peterborough a couple of months ago
