OK, no, still not decided until I get this in the mail:

If I use it, the white will go gold.

These ones.

They didn't fit the shape of the tank.

All done. Just some fine tuning like graphics and light adjustments. Runs great!

Notched the Vetter to clear the air cleaner.


Then started playing with pin stripes.

I like the tank stripe, needs an HD logo above it.



Then I striped the battery cover. Not sure on this one. Here are a few shots of it.

Before:


After:





Cockpit cleaned up with windscreen on.

Final stripe configuration achieved. I like it. No strip on the battery cover, added the HD logo over the stripe on the tank. My CDO is tweaked by the fact that the tank stripe doesn't line up with the fairing stripe from certain angles, but not much to be done with that. If I moved the stripe to match the Vetter, it would look odd from other angles.







Before I added back the tank stripe. Looks nekkid!

Damn Jim, I understand, you may have to tear the fairing off and completely redo it......

Essentially I am done. Changed the oil, ran it for 20 minutes and reassembled the bike fully. Not really much to do but ride it.
