Thank you!
Did some very minor changes to it since I bought it about a year ago.

experimented with different handlebar types, but XLX bars suits me best(duh!).
changed speedometer to a '65 tombstone model in km/h
smaller turn signals
relocated the front turn signals
smaller mirrors
lost some chrome parts

It's the nicest running bike of all 6 Harleys I've owned. This is a keeper

That's a mean looking bike. Definately Spanish. It looks like an angry Pamplona bull. Those handlebars look like it's horns
Olé!

Got her all blacked out last night. Made some matte black covers for the AMF blue stripes on the tank.
