I think you're right about the rear fender being too big for chrome. I was consdering a pair of aluminum fenders such as those at LowBrow Customs, but there might be a lot of work involved in getting them to fit a suspended XL.'
I can see the direction you're heading. As is, it's nicely understated with a definite 'retro' look.
Reveal the truth about the seat
Thanks Sporting Lad! Yep, tank's a 4.5 (from a "low" maybe?). The seat is a two-up I shaved down and had an upholsterer do the rest. There're better pics of everything in my build thread. I think the next thing I wanna do is an 18" wheel in the back. That'll visually open up the rear of the bike, I think.

They are STORZ pipes and they do get warm but not uncomfortable.
